Living in the Midst of Rainforest 

(August- November, 2012) 

Subba Rao 

Pouring rain over 165 inches per year 

Intermittent liquid sunshine 

Mounds of molten black lava rocks 

Non-indigenous trees overtaking the native 

A rainforest without parrots and monkeys 

Roaming free range chickens and wild pigs 

Relentless Coqui noise from tree frogs left unchecked 

Abandoned sugarcane turned into cane grass 

Two inch native bananas 

Ripe wild mangoes on the ground to pick 

Beach parks without beaches 

Clothing optional 

Can't live without Boogie boards and boots 

Surfers waiting on rocks like seals for big waves 

Imported reggae rhythms as island music 

People flocking to hot ponds and tide pools 

Everything organic whatever it is 

Wild donkeys tamed as pets 

Everywhere yoga studios 

Meditation mantra on sale 

Ashram dwellers seeking universal love 

Gays gathering around the steam vents rubbing each other backs 

Multi-ethnic melting pot a bright spot 

Happy hippy colonies 

Pot paradise 

Farmers' markets selling from pot to produce 

Inspiring green papaya salad and sweet Taro pudding 

8 dollar burrito 

Flourishing Floriculture and Apiculture 

A place where the Seventh Day Adventists get respect 

Misguided youth walking bare foot and smoking pot 

Roadside fruit stands selling Lilico'I, papayas, avocados, mangoes and
Chayote squash 

Land prospectors waiting to cash on 

Retirees living in gated community constantly mowing grass with loud
noise on 8 acre plots 

Mainlanders dressing in floral garments and growing facial hair to
masquerade 

Cooking gas in portable cylinders 

Geothermal generating more noise than power 

Lackluster solar power 

Wind energy up in the air 

A distant possibility of Tsunami and volcanic eruptions 

Living in midst of rainforest on the Big Island, Hawaii
