Kapu...


At Mauna 'Ala, the Sacred Burial Place of our Kings, Queens, Chiefs and Chiefesses, the grounds are guarded and protected by the golden kapu sticks, the pahu pūlo'ulo'u, which come alive at Night...

You...


I Never Beheld...
Such Breathtaking Beauty...
Smoldering Slumbering Embers...
Of my Heart...
Gently Awoken...
By Simple Thoughts...
Of Enchanting You...

Depression...


The Brain is incredibly complex and sensitive, yet resilient as well. Depression impacts everyone in varying degrees, intensity and duration. There shouldn't be any stigma with Mental Illness as it shows up in so many forms of chemical imbalance for the entire population. Emotions. Moods. Perceptions. Thoughts. Dreams. Electrical synapses.

Who could blame anyone for falling into deep despair over chronic pain. Difficulties in Life. Pressure. Grief. Hopelessness. Frustration. Or Seemingly for no reason at all. That our Brains and Minds function so well to keep us Alive at All is a Miracle in and of itself.

Life, and the modern hectic World can be very unforgiving and relentless. Even cruel and unjust. Don't dwell on the reasons for Depression. Instead, focus on emerging and arising again when it arrives. Put all of your focus and energy into simply staying Alive. The Sun shall Arrive again. The Light shall return.

Hope shall quietly make Her Glorious Appearance yet once again. As She has all of your Life. Watch for Her. In the Kind Genuine Smiles of Others. Savor Her Presence. Appreciate Her undying Love for Humanity. Celebrate Her Undying Love for You...

Beckoning...


Adrift in Life...
Your Love...
Your Light...
Beckons Me...
Relentlessly...

Shadows...


Mr. Makapiapia Mongoose emerged from his den and saw his shadow. That means six more weeks of cold snowy weather in Hawai'i....

Moonlight's Soliloquy...


Mystical...


High above Sleeping Honolulu...
In the Hills of Kapālama...
Exists a Legendary Haunted Magical Forest...
Where my Soul entered as a Lost  Frightened Child...
And Emerged as a Powerful Compassionate Man...
With Eternal Life...
Saved by the Love of a Princess...
The End...

Burdens...


When Life's Burdens...
Seem Insurmountable...
And Hope Quickly Fleeting...
Know that this Life and World...
Is Much More Precious and Sacred..
Because of Beautiful Resilient...
Struggling Deeply Loved...
You...

The Life Giving Waters of Kāne trying desperately to survive in Urban Honolulu...

Remembering when Koa found a chicken shaped chicken nugget...

James and the Giant Kalo Plant...


Kealakahi...


Devastated hearing the news of a Beautiful Friend and Brother, Kealakahi, transitioning from this Earthly Realm. Such a Beautiful and Humble Kanaka 'ōiwi. Gave so much Aloha to the Ancestors. Trying to save their Earthly Remains, and the Disappearing last vestiges of their Life and World. Which is Truly Our World. 

I know our Beautiful Father and Kūpuna have prepared a Beautiful Home for you, of Eternal Love, Light and Everlasting Peace. And I know that you are preparing our Beautiful Home as well, from your Love, for All of Us. One Love. One Path. Kealakahi. Love you...

Food Security...


Finally finished making my own Board and Stone. Now I can properly feed my 'ohana...

Skipped...


I have a habit of smelling my fruits and vegetables to check for freshness. I ended up light-headed and almost passed out on this one...

Frightened...


This Organic Tomato tried to French Kiss me so I screamed and bolted out of the grocery store...

No Nā Mamo...


For the Children...

Paths...


Sometimes in Life...
We end up Parting Ways...
Different Destined Paths...
The Beauty of What Lasted...
Was Real and Pure...
The Relentless Truth of Love...
From Pain, Heartache and Devastation...
Arises the Breath and Caress of New Love...
So Never Regret or Lament...
Love Lost...
Release it Gently with Gratitude...
For All Paths Shall Once Again Converge...
In the End...
All Love...
One Love...
Forever...

Love...

Needed...


All Throughout my Life...
What I Thought I Wanted...
Wasn't What I Truly Needed...
Looking Back at All the Heartache...
I Now Am so Truly Grateful...
That the Universe Knew the Difference...
And Blessed me with What I Needed...
Not What I Wanted...
With One Beautiful Exception...
That in My Life...
Divinity Knew That I both Wanted...
And very much Needed...
You...

Almost ten-years ago, at a Kukulu Kumuhana gathering at the State Capitol, a maka, or face, of a kupuna showed up in the Hawaiian flag. They are always very much present...
