Sweet Maui Island

Your magnificent

Colors brighten the sky:

Beautiful, what a sight,

That gives an ‘awe,’

To everyone eyes:

A Hola, a friendly smile,

Not a goodbye:

Sweet Maui Island

I love to be presence,

Hearing the sound

Of the ocean wave,

The songs, the melody,

To the heart as I stand,

Breathing in fresh wind

While others pass us by.

About the author


This bio will be short. I am a graduate of Medgar Evers College. Mother of three and grandmother. I love to read and write poetry.

To those who have been a great support in reading my website and those who just came across this poetry this will be the ending of my poetic journey for now. I hope there will be a new chapter in my life that will be a success and inspired people to be far better in their thoughts, words and deeds. I am working on myself and it’s been hard.... yet I am getting there. When I began my poetry, I felt so deeply inspired. Now when I write I just write (feeling burned out of all that has occurred and is occurring) and I am feeling as if my poetry isn’t moving in the manner that I feel it should because I have not place myself in a position to be active reading my poetry at live venues for my own personal reason. I wanted to thank those who took the time to read my poetry especially my love ones. Thank you for being on the journey with me. Peace and blessings.
