Malama Ke Kai

by Philip Scott Wikel

 

Restoring Waters

Makai Side

laps against the Pali

 

Fishermen say:

“Aloha Ka Manini”

Malala Ke Kai

Bless the ocean that

feeds us in so many ways

 

Surfing

The Sport of Kings

thrownets

cast for sustenance

and children scream with joy

on bodyboards

 

Kanaloa

God of the Sea

hair combed slowly by a fresh wind

and massaged by a Southern Swell

 

Restoring Waters

Makai Side

feeds my liquid soul
