volcanic sunrise

i love it for the name of a drink
but it is not a beverage
and it comes with a 3am wake-up call

this morning
hubster and i
drove 2 hours in the pitch black
from sea level
to 10,000 feet
from 60 degrees to 40
to join with others
in search of 
what has been hailed as one of the most amazing sites in all of Maui
sleep deprived
in need of warmth
and 
a steady hand
we were rewarded
with this
6 am
and then this
at 6:40
and this
at 6:44
and at 6:46
and then
finally
at 9:00am
this
i don't know when i have appreciated 
a cup of coffee
more
Aloha
