A Poem by Cherise Wyneken

Hawaiian Parable   
Fogged in
muddling through the mountains
we wiper through wet mists
struggling to the summit.
the clouds may lift.
Wait – you might achieve your goal
   grand view of Grand Canyon
Kokee Park, Kauai.
Below the puff of breeze
deep cliffs appear like magic
   saddle-backed and red.
A gold-green frieze of velvet
slopes the sides.
Fogged in
muddling through the mountains
we press with patience
for a glimpse of heaven’s crest.
