Hawaiʻi Sonnet 67 (for LKH and R&R C)

Leināʻala floats, a dream vision
her smile indelible, genuine, always so gracious 
gliding, swaying, her hands are birds in flight
elegance in their movement, soar and weave of feathered flame
this haunting hula elegantly danced before her devoted hālau
Nā Pualei o Likolehua, ascendant buds to flower
adorned in their yellow costume blaze, burning embodiment
of ʻAla’s love, her history, her pure seeds sown to bloom

The Brothers Cazimero rise into hallowed voice
elevating the Royal audience to the heights of perfect harmony
Robert swinging at fond attention to his upright bass
Roland perched atop his pillow, strumming heaven

The three, some energetic luminescence, overflowing space
trinity of proud tradition and prime sustenance for generations to come
