They are five young shower trees

Aligned on Auahi Street, fearlessly

Blossoming outside Salt in late June’s

Heat, full in their belief that they always

Will be so lustrous and as proud

As the youth of Honolulu parading

Under their shade, fearlessly believing


This will never happen again.

Mahalo for reading!
