February 28 ~  I Think of the Trees Waikiki

"I think of the trees and how simply they let go, let fall the riches of a season, how without grief (it seems) they can let go and go deep into their roots for renewal and sleep." ~ May Sarton, Journal of a Solitude

Moana Banyan Tree

Every old tree has dignity and history. Place your palm on the trunk and feel the energy. Imagine the wisdom of each branch, the secret of every leaf.

This tree... love at first sight.

Look up and try and capture the grandeur and beauty. Impossible.

The Indian Banyan tree stands proudly near the ocean at the Waikiki Moana Hotel. When last measured, the tree spanned 150-feet across and crowned at 75-feet. Planted in 1904, this miracle is on Honolulu's Exceptional Tree List.

"Exceptional" is an inadequate adjective.

Let Go and Go Deep.
