Hilo Moon

Tonight the sun set and a beautiful Hilo moon showed up.  On the Hawaiian moon calendar the first moon - a tiny little crescent - is called Hilo.  I've always loved this moon phase -in addition to it marking new beginnings - it shares a name with my hometown.  Looking at this dainty sliver set against vibrant colors made me miss my sweet little town.  I'm ready for a refreshing dip in the Leleiwi ice ponds - an ice shave at Wilsons - farmers market produce - a Hamakua drive - a hike over soggy soil with dripping ohia trees overhead - an afternoon cruising Kole Kole and Hakalau - a cup of coffe sipped at my kitchen counter....
