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



The Sport of Kings


cast for sustenance

and children scream with joy

on bodyboards



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
