Surf wagon inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Eateries Streetwise ShoyuMayo

Cosmopolitan cuisine captures the landscape
Something universal lies within quaint escape
As reverse disease diet makes healthy junket
Junk food zaps energy, even tries to plunk it

In universal continental condiment desire
France and Japan enter as continents aspire
Oils beaten with egg inside vinegar glaze
Emulsified perfection lecithin mayonnaise

Trek creamy cuisine roadhouses mortar and brick
Wary travelers come in for the thin and thick
Eateries streetwise allotments align in path
Taste of home while you shape a wide swath

A little luck can put you on top of your game
Learning of eateries streetwise brings the pain
Old common ground stands a familiar friend
Kitchens in kindness hoping for hands to lend

In victory form mayonnaise rises above
As soy sauce custodial shows the love
Infatuation stirs salty fat to intrigue
As mayo and shoyu enter the league

Olive oil whisked egg yolk somehow pleases
Fermented soy bean with roasted grain teases
Salt on a journey handy shoyu stays true
White cream before battle mayo serves cue

Contribute a carbon delicious taste "umami"
Brewed in traditional adage of culture tsunami
Old stand-by in the shadows keep travelers strong
Salty consistency mixing a Mediterranean song

A journey so sacred both half worlds away
Mayo and shoyu simply came to play
Oil and vinegar joins emulsified egg zest
Soy bean grain fermented on hamburger quest

To Beautify

Born into corridors of begotten power
No qualms to get chosen at this late hour
Strong senses emerge to stage a rally
In acts against mad urges in silly dally

Taken over by money as background slips
Against baron horizon to sail bigger ships
Step onto the stage to right and beautify
As bigger and better waits to run on the fly

Offers stand for a grander shape to fill
Seen in a negative light stays one's will
Personal caucus causes dust to mound
To beautify remains as a must to abound

Tropical Journey

Get up and Go


Rule Your Roost

To find out how to go get a satisfying life
Now summarized as boring and pulling out strife
Out there you've given freely jumping shelf to shelf
Why not keep a little more peace for yourself?

Taking a trip is the fun whereas on arrival you rock
To go on a smooth cruise pull away from rough dock
Paint yourself up go out be somebody new
Alive on arrival as one of the few with the clue

Volatility strikes with its unenduring ring
When asking for help at the end of your string
To snap and pop forward in passions of heart
Unhappy lives are a good place to start

Attend a bookstore now get some momentum
Read up on how others have been locked in detention
Look around at first don't be afraid to skim and peruse
The finding is the journey with no time afforded to lose

Fantasy and self image are one tricky customer
Take another look this time fuss and muss more
A few misjudgments tilted the wrong way
All add up to a herd of donkeys who bray

Face yourself now and add a lot more cheer
The rocky road of life is what offers you fear
To arrive one day and to see in full view
A pattern of activity once defined as you

Some things beside you act on their own force
With their own directions and no roadmap of course
A flicker from inside you lights your heart
To hear voices of truth outside in the dark

Now you've asked and standing more at the ready
The hearing of a new bell reels a little more steady
A satisfied life sails above for you to soar
Only after you answer the sound at their door

Can beliefs held sacred be solidified as a friend?
When happiness feels like it's only on lend
A new door opens if you act just a bit
At first it only needs you to answer it

How much do you want and how deep is your pride
Taking steps need action but won't let you ride
Old habits have a way of making you think
Something was accomplished on a flash and a blink

Your same old self will stay there in the mirror
After no trip it took because of fear and furor
Not seeing yourself the way others see
Falls onto your shoulder of responsibility

When the bell rings or if somebody knocks
Will you answer or just watch a clock?
If watching time pass as life flies by
Just outside your door never cares why

What you believe as who you are
Holds you in place as if it were Czar
Systems of influence have their say
Only you alone decide to have it your way

Still the door waits through thick and thin
For you to go out not it to come in
You hold it there with the force of push
As massive thoughts and beliefs bum rush

Who you are crosses a great divide
Between who to become and that person inside
Action is the volunteer who is holding the key
Now it's your turn to decide your own legacy

Ask yourself this,"Am I really able?"
To enjoy conversation at confidence's table
Do I possess the needed willpower?
Answer it yes, see a new disposition flower

Red White and Tropical Blue



Aloha poets,
Red white and tropical blue inspire today's poem. Enjoy!

Mysty Mistyped

Stress attracts as opposites crossed out against the grain
Little jaunts in part inspired by piracy's private gain
Uphill battles underscore the need for more mocha java fire
Set off alone across white sands is insanity's instant desire

Pure pulse imagines to champion a life lived unnoticed
Arrays of variability coupled on seed fields to go double noted
Abused unusual has reason for the inked naked to head out
Core commonalities alternate when alienation stands stout

Invested in birth to stand as freedom clearly entitles
Everywhere around then find only chains and bride bridles
Impacted thoughts far outpace as a sudden hearth of health
To resurface in time to tribute a heartache's dearth of wealth

Spectrum strikes as silent drums stand out in plain view
Imminent glamor grows up then lives in full life askew
Find out what happens by being instantly constant
In prolonging the longing to be constantly infant

Play it back again to watch your new delegates upstage
Respite settles in just long enough to turn another page
Attempts at assumption enjoy the song along with corrupt elite
While impending authority structures bang a gong to compete

To coalesce out there long trekked from different ice stations
Sends scripture again to be structured again into emerging nations
Expectations reign once again even if from a sleepy dream
As miniscule missiles float unattended onto life's stream

Waikiki Skyline



Aloha Poets,
waikiki Skyline inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

The Fragile Agile Fashionista

Destination maintains mountains believed once gone
Designers hold up layouts in relief to be heaved upon
Separate waves have their ways to yearn and crave
Flights to Milan that trip of no return for the bold and brave

Fancies of the world beckon more than once for safe return
In memorable camera prints never harsh to chafe and burn
Death comes knocking at the deathbed of only the threadbare
Machines revive to the dance in end of the runway stare stare

Components approach in a so-called game of love
Trust approaches as if broaching perimeters from above
Balmy bomb leans on new meanings of textile paradise
Where ornate orange in oceans routinely roll the dice

How long and when outtakes take continues to factor in
Waiter writers cling to red ink inside their fashionista pen
Messengers carry but care for where more than when
History matters to all those who strive to remain voted in

So travel on as if a a troupe military volunteer international
The push of fear to go to new lengths survives all rational
Capture the flight in memorable points of camera prints
Dressed up sporty and down formal releases all hints

Urgent boutiques bring rainy seasons to the fore
As secretive ways shadow control freaks to the door
As poetry of story mixes gamesmanship with deluxe
Manufacturing trill and orders as fill drivers back up the trucks

Fashionista season now nonchalant in speculative bets
Two perfumes out perform what a gallant executive gets
Designers weigh-in as a top show's run ends at runway's end
Now is the time for trunk shows to shine in true fashionista blend

Windswept Surf Waikiki



Aloha Poets,
Windswept surf Waikiki inspires today's poem. Enjoy!


Normalcy Cools on Reflection Pools

A journey across the water's edge sings of an occasional romance
Discernment of certain safety nets cling as if backwater's importance
A swipe of uncertainty swings clear so onto backyard swings you don
In want of chance broader shoulders soldier as you dance on

Pattern signals ring in circles of love's electrical eclectic
Importances rise from their inner disguises to beg off life's daily hectic
Clocks tic as if to prod and rattle you out to your own reflection pool
Inextricably a barren normalcy finds its fame in perceptions of cool

Where negative episodes goad a positive abode in from the cold
Doomed time comes to feel sublime and medicalized so your told
On the surface of it all your night watchman sees through star dust
Yes barren formalities desire as they must to trust inside all that fuss

The chance for growth grows slow under foot to put aside old ways
Reflection pools arrive after being schooled in the art of those lost days
The heart of it all starts with the call for tea leaves and the such
Written rhymes throw it down on a dime leaving time for just so much

Friendly souls walk the soles and talk of goals in moments of craw
Roped into the night by a writhing to write to pen a character flaw
Slighted to be right slightly out of sight a case of identity mistaken
Tension mounts to count double doubts in token ovens with cakes in

Fend off a haunting within turns of the current over ebbs once blurted
What does it teach deflected upon the reach once a blind eye is asserted
Once it falls away the duty of desire reaches inside to light another fire
Culture foibles stigmatized in offense lend a hand of recompensed dire

Subject of change brings on its own pain with more morals to pour on
Recognizable taints colors pictures and paints creativity's cute little moron
Specialty pacts packs their own punch then go out to lunch in trepidation
Dogged persistence only goes the distance with particular lap dog dilapidation

Who is to question when quest's bastion is only a footpath away from a fall
A flight to gain becomes a night of pain when mirror neurons reflect all
Ripple effects reach as backwaters expect to breach the touch of time
Deliberate toys return to annoy as a written noise once they lose the rhyme

Inner pursuits were no suite they just suit and embolden the beholder
Symptoms of age under the guise to be safe goes golden as a free holder
An elevated place often misplaces a recollection of your collection of cools
Time proposes water's touch of our noses to enjoy our own reflection pools

Paddling Out



Aloha Poets,
Paddling out inspires today's poem. Enjoy!

Indie Mermaids Immersed

A living being set inside your mind
Composted story wets and whistles blind
Old familiar ground beyond a haziness float
Golden moments of counterbalance adds tote

Embark on the outset where flag bearers drown
And miss the misty eyes so deep and so brown
Dispirited life covers half the world blind
Low key mayhem under your deep waters sublime

Experts wind down studies of ocean swirls
Expected winds downturn as banners unfurl
Pride of the waves nestled below a gale's lee
Inside her ship's galley a pot of hot tea

She swims with cowfish yet started star-crossed
Across seas living green under paradise lost
Her kind of keeping conjures a color oasis
Peaceful bamboo and far off island places

This flow of undercurrent a small pond never sees
Any further talk of retreat creates peace virtually
These surfaces can only soothe and yet never harden
The only church she's known is this indie tech garden

All facets are faucets pouring out natural charms
Met a physical swarming now held in her arms
Never at the expense of the narrow and weak
Clamors above safety surfacing for a peek

How it all looks down there fades with the tides
Boasting no divine stature even as danger hides
Her unique ways leak out into plasma water
Sounds invitational the lantern of Neptune's daughter
