Recipe for Getting Leid

13 Jan

Princess Lei

By the crack of great bodies against the glass sea
and the plumes of whales spouting
 I’ve been leid.

By  cumulus clouds collaring a rainbow
in ruffles and lace
 I’ve been leid.

By the harmony of coqui and surf at night,
by liquid bird song at dawn
 I’ve been leid.

By Pele draping Kilauea
in wreaths of red ribbon
 I’ve been leid.

 By the purr of a kitten,  glide of fur, caress of a tail
threading between my ankles
 I’ve been leid.

By warm brown arms, generous heart,
a necklace of shells and a whispered aloha
 I’ve been leid.

My wish
May you never reach the end of a day without being leid.

Aloha from Nara who is off to get leid on a black sand beach

    From the bottom of my heart, I would like to say…I hate you, LOL. You’re in Hawaii, and I’ve got snow on the ground for the first time in forever. *grin* Trade ya?

      Hey, We have snow here too. I saw some high up on the mountain top when I stopped on an overlook to watch the whales. 🙂
