Banyan Beauty of Waikiki
acrylic on museum wrap canvas
I usually write a little silly poem...but...instead a comment...
This Banyan is at Kapilani Park in Waikiki, or it was the last time I was there.
Once in a while someone gets a wild idea to chop down a tree. In my backyard
several trees were sacrificed recently. The neighbors at the high rise next door
can watch their television and mine now. They can hear me and I can hear them.
Privacy is gone and the joy of cool shade is no longer.
"Oh I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree."
