E moe malie me ka ‘ala o napua ‘awapuhi

E moe malie me ka ‘ala o napua ‘awapuhi

Walking across the carpet, feet sink into heavenly clouds

Fragrances of ginger and plumeria kiss the air

Sliding open the glass door, the linai reveals the ocean landscape

Palm trees sway gently in the trade winds

As day eases into night, tired souls retire into feathery comfort

But only after reading the Aloha greeting:

E moe malie me ka ‘ala o napua ‘awapuhi

Sleep soundly with the sweet scent of ginger blossoms.

One thought on “E moe malie me ka ‘ala o napua ‘awapuhi

  1. Beautiful Holly! I love how you begin the poem with the Hawaiian greeting and then end with the translation. This is such a treat to read. I love your descriptions and word choice! “”Pal trees sway gently in the trade wind.” Beautiful! I was transported! Beautiful imagery and description!
