The sky of strong blue as it dims at dusk, that I shall in no way look at the same. A new start in rich, pure, salt scent may claim the heart of the sea, both wild and calm musk. By dawn, close and dear lure the sun kissed shores and when I feel, the fair breast of an hour, of the wide world I stand lone, and may lour the tours that laze and taste the out of doors. Gone far in the hushed land down the rock cliffs to cold surf, fish safe in tide pools true sight. Feel the winds change in the pick of hush night; the soul's high and low show of the waves riffs. Love the raw grace of the land and surfs, falls, arts, taste of the past and now, its calm calls. 9/26/2019

way to go taking that challenge. I don't know if I will be able to give it a go, but you sure did a great job, Eve. You have been to Hawaii? It is something I really want to do, and go visit our Connie there!!
