Mauka/Makai

Where earth has poured out its magma heart

onto ocean’s sphere, things begin to happen

differently.

Then stony solidity challenges watery

dominance,

and blocked kinesis thrusts

interference

patterns onto the wavy deep.

‘Tis then the great fluid finds its

fury,

and the waves their wobbly wanderings.

‘Tis then

the splashy sea find its unsettled voice,

lending boisterous mayhem to the world:

Islands become frontiers of landed life, and

continents become monuments of tectonic

discontent,

and mankind finds itself at home there.

This is a fair place to spend eternity,

if it were so,

but if not, there is a better world

to which we go.

Don’t ask me how I know;

it is the substance of things unseen

to which our faith doth flow.

Glass half-Full
