Dream Quest One First Poetry Prize
Winner - Winter 2014 -2015
of Lihue, Hawaii






My predisposed demeanor of alchemy

envelops my destiny without choice,

this questionable stage of my existence-

i did not ask for.


No sight of understanding i’ve gained yet

on this process of life- but blindly and bravely,

i continue to believe in its goodness.


The unknowing ones of such awe

look not at me twice-

easily dismissed i am as ordinary,

but the journey ahead tugs on my optimistic nature.


There’s an ineffable magic i keep

but know not where it will take me,

i trade my trepidation for patience-

and find comfort in a whisper of intuition.


My dreamy state offers subduction

and collects my energy as toll,

without a glimmer of attention except for my own,

i become friends with my spirit.


Encased in darkness but incredibly aware,

i realize it is only by eye that others first detect change.


No transparency surrounds me

as the hard work of solitude carries on...

fervently protecting the unveil, with due time.


And effortlessly one day,

like waking from a long abstraction-

i was me on the outside now,

as my heart beauty-fully

unfolded on my sleeves.




 About me: I am a middle-aged creative person inspired by the beauty that surrounds me on the island of Kauai, HI.
