   to my mind it is an aspirational word. casual aspiration.

    i don’t have a Lanai. but if i did i would like to drink a mint julep on my Lanai.

i wouldn’t even write a poem out there. probably i do that at the kitchen table.

      on the Lanai i would smoke a little joint, watch the palms move past, listen to people jump into a swimming pool. you know.

    my wife’s mom had a Lanai. Kathy’s place was small. one room.

    there was a little river? some pool of water below the Lanai. it held rare ducks!

    she may have had a fainting couch out there.

    Kathy is a Lanai kind of person and so am i.
