A leaf from Hawaiian myths
Kulua a savior

Revelation of
the Water Bearer beats the
icing on the cake

Blessings of water
occasionally spilled to
wet the grounds below

Note: When the moon is in its first quarter in January and February it is thought to be a bowl where the Gods gather rain water for spring. The Hawaiians can see then the Water Bearer (a constellation) The name of the moon for that period is Kulua  -  Chev

  1. Photo image you chose definitely fits the idea of "blessings of water...spilled"!

  2. I guess it's always good to be nice to the gods just in case

  3. Beautiful. Love the inclusion of the Hawaiian cultural part. And the image you used is great.

  4. Very interesting Hank, and as always well written.

  5. Ohh I thoroughly enjoyed the bit of Hawaiian lesson--thank you SO MUCH!
