Jeramie P

He lives in a pineapple under the sea
And on this day we went to Hoapili
With lava as far as the eyeball can see
By shoreline as beautiful as it can be
I'm speaking of Jeramie P from Maui
An islander met spinning fire on the beach
Beneath all the stars that are not out of reach
If we just tune into our own frequencies
Although of the ocean, each wave is unique 
It moves on its own and it breaks separately 
With different things, people, and places to see
Bays, harbors, coves, gulfs, lagoons, coral reef
Turacos, Parulas, Blue Lorikeets
Fishermen, mariners, scuba diving
Surfers and pirates and all things marine
We can do anything of which we dream

Banyan Tree

Sitting here beside the sea
Beneath a giant Banyan tree
In beatific Hawaii
I'm listening so quietly 
And I heard God say in the breeze
You put a man ahead of me
And if you ever wish to be
Peaceful, calm, content, and free
You must be willing to receive
And to follow where I lead
From where you are through to point B
If it's causing you stress, leave
Have always in your heart this creed
I will forever remove weeds
Remember this when you're lonely
For you are always here with me

Clever Librarian

Like a good orphan, I dreamt of him
Of family, of roots, of kin
I'm one clever librarian
And he, my undead vampire friend
But he sleeps inside his own coffin
Beside the very queen of them
Will he someday awaken?
To see the sun and live again
On this, I do not depend
I rest in peace and I'm content
And no, I will not join them
