Makapu’u Lighthouse

It begins with a paved path

Then opens onto an expansive view or two

Ah, but then the tempting cliffs and edges call

So we can’t help but go down and explore. Yes, this way, let’s go!

Then, down by the sea, our own little pond

Perfect for watching the waves rage too

But we must continue, the sentinels beckon us

Those imprisoned islands await our visit

Oh, or maybe we’re the ones behind bars

Just as well, the day draws to a close. Here’s one last hurrah on the way back

The lighthouse itself was shy that day. Sequestered behind repaired fences. Maybe next time we’ll climb those fences and sit with our legs dangling over the cliff edge, staring off to sea. Maybe, maybe, if you come with me.
