Food and Love

Pule ‘Ai

I ola nö ke kino
I ka maona o ka ‘öpü
I mä’ona nö ka ‘öpü
me ke aloha o ka makua
E pü pa’akai käkou
me ke mahalo
Ua loa’a ho’i iä käkou
ka’ai a me ke aloha

The body lives because the
Stomach is satisfied
The stomach is satisfied because of the
Love of the parent
Let’s thankfully
Share some salt
Because we have
Food and Love

    Lovely poem! And on my grandma’s 76th birthday. I sent that email about the book but haven’t heard back yet so I went ahead and sent a message on facebook, looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
