Napali coast so easy
on the eyes hills softened

by mist waves blunted
by distance except

sometimes falling
like a rifle shot a retort

and then that silence
that so underscores

the drama that
preceded it high surf

warning we watched
it glut dry coves appetites

whetted for destruction
the ocean rampant

avenging and we argued
about the height of the waves

breaking far offshore
and if any were whales

and it may be tempting
to think clarity

with distance but in fact
that is wrong
