Kona O'Shay

Kona O'Shay

A Chapter by Dave Brown

sunny day


Kona O’Shay went on a sunny day

To the beach with his paddle board

And through the spray of a salty way

Seaward he then oared


Neath the sights of gooney flights

He paddled the coral sea

Joined by a pod of playful porpoise

Who dove and danced carefree


The way was clear with porpoise near

And he paddled till late night

Which became his last human day

As he joined gooneys birds in flight


Palm trees sway beside tropic seas

Coconut crabs crawl cross sands

But the strangest thing, I’ve ever seen

Is a Gooney bird with a paddle in two hands

Your title on this one caught me. Kind of a mythic name. I will say, when it’s my time to transform from human to the next thing, I wouldn’t mind at all taking Kona’s route. Becoming the bird and still getting to keep the paddle. Could be fun. Always enjoy your playful poems, Dave. You’re a great storyteller.

And we'd be able to fly away from all this smoke
Well, maybe??

A definite advantage to having wings. Hopefully they are built for long distance flight.

A nice little playful piece. :)
I'm spending the weekend at the cottage with my daughter and we've just been out on the paddleboards. No porpoise or gooney birds however.
