tiny bubbles

who leaves 80 degree weather
in the dead of winter
for a balmy holiday 
in Hawaii?
i do
of course

we planned this trip
long before we knew that
summer would show up by
lest you think i am complaining

by the time you read this
I will be sipping a mai tai
on the beach
while hubster
gives don ho

a run for his money

(my hawaiian name which was printed on a grain of rice and purchased by me
in 1984
in celebration of my high school graduation
and boiled by me
sometime in the 90s
in false hope
that it would be funny)
