Kiawe Tree, Guardian of Poka`i Bay
Kiawe Tree, Guardian of Poka’i Oil 24×30

Stranger to this peaceful, sheltered land
Pay my respects to Ku’ilioloa asking permission to linger.
Pu’u Ma’ili’ili & Twins Pu’u O Hulu Welcome me.
“E Komo Mai” they beckoned, “join us”.
Their Aloha warm my heart.
I plant my soul in the aina, for decades watching over Poka’i Bay.
I am the guardian!

Preferred playground & summer home to the Hawaiian Royalty was Helumoa, present site of the luxurious Royal Hawaiian. Happily, I retired from this historic Royal Hawaiian Hotel. Opened in 1927 to pamper guests with an elegant ambiance that still prevails today, where memorable moments touch the heart with Aloha.
