The Long Way Back

She holds it in with a smile on her face

as darkness pulls her down.

Emotions in a jumble

but she knows she must be strong.

Can’t let them see inside her

afraid they’ll think her weak.

So until she’s off and all alone

false bravado she must keep.

It wasn’t always like this

a life kept far apart.

She used to have a family

of which she was a part.

But life can take you places

taking others far away.

One moment she was happy   

then too quickly, it all changed.

Hopefully she’ll rebuild a life

that she can call her own.

But today she’ll wear

a mask of sorts

and call no place a home.

Moonlit Dreams

The night mist dances

slowly, gracefully

over the  darkening land.

She knows her job wellnight faries6a

and as night deepens

she quickens in her journey.

There is much to do before dawn

on arrival she wastes no time

soothing, calming and inspiring

each to dream their beautiful dreams

and as peaceful slumber arrives

she smiles and swirls away

sharing more of her moonlit dreams.

Magic of Reading

sail away

Stay with me Oma

read to me some more.

For my mind is full of wonder

and your words

they open doors.

To travel and to ponder

over lands so far away.

Read to me Oma

and let us sail today.   Hansi Riley

 

 

Whats Going On

Gazing at the sky so blue

I see more lines and haze

from all the crazy chemtrails

the world’s begun to ail.

Do we know what they are doing

how bout longtime effects

on our children and water

earth, food and all our pets.

Why would they do this

how is it allowed

with no regulations

on these deadly dripping clouds.

What about the future

and the damage that’s being done

we can’t just sit here silent

cause they’re poisoning everyone!  Hansi Riley

 

Yes chemtrails are real and they have accelerated the spraying night and day.  Until we all speak up, it will not stop.    http://www.bbc.com/news/health-27904822

 

 

Shame on the NFL Protests, so many men & women died protecting your butts, & you can’t even stand up out of respect for them. This is the wrong way to protest! American children are watching you, so get some ca-hones & stand up for your country!

Honokea Surf Villages & Resorts partnered with The Rilington Group

Hawaii-based real estate development company, Honokea Surf Villages & Resorts, is looking to develop a 60-acre ‘surf village’ and resort in California’s Coachella Valley.

The development will include a surf facility, an adventure sports park, a large events space, an organic farm, dining and shopping areas, and a boutique hotel.Honokea Surf Villages and Resorts

The company was founded in 2011 by local surfer and waterman Brian KeaulanaKeno Knieriem and his father Kenan Knieriem to create a unique real estate development company that uses man-made wave technologies to create surf resorts in Hawaii and the Mainland.

Honokea partnered with California-based land development management company The Rilington Group to oversee construction, which may create up to 400 local jobs. Once open, the project is expected to create 600 jobs and generate more than $1 billion for the local economy.

“We are honored to lead the planning and execution of this project,” said Mickie Riley, president of The Rilington Group. “With our local knowledge and expertise we are excited to bring Honokea’s vision to life in the Coachella Valley. As a locally operated firm not only do we work in the community but we live here and we play here. The Coachella Valley is an ideal location for the Surf Village and we share in Honokea’s focus on environmental sustainability and community building.”

The Honokea Surf Village will be a sustainable project, using drip irrigation and aquaponic farming, using approximately one-eighth the water currently consumed by each of the 124 golf courses in the valley.

The project has been in the works for two years, and will include educational initiatives involving local school partnerships, as well as collaborations with nonprofit organizations.

“We would be truly honored to bring Honokea to the Coachella Valley,” Keaulana said in a statement. “Southern California has a great surf culture that has always been tied very closely to Hawaii, and the desert is such a special place. We are excited to combine these cultures into something authentic and truly unique.”
