Beautiful Ei's

Listen to poem:
*Image of Beautiful Haku Lei by PIN. A Day In May May 1st is observed as "Lei Day" wholly o'er the Hawaiian isles, garlands on hula dancers sway as colorful flowers gift smiles. Haku is a lei meant, "to braid", opened ends with complex flowers like the "Bird of Paradise", weighed mass blends trim blooms crowning showers. 2022 May 10 *4th Place* A Lay for A Day In May ~~Andrea Dietrich: Judged 2022 May 15 *RZ; abab, cdcd, & HMS; 8 syllables x 8 lines

This is so beautiful. So glad to get acquainted with the custom of the Hawaiian islands of braiding flowers in the lovely fashion as the picture illustrates. Definitely a well deserved win, Williams and Congratulations!

Aloha, Katherine, 'tis a color-filled day that our local schools invite parents to watch their kids perform, grouped via each of their grade levels, donning their lei's made at home. Glad you enjoyed this piece my friend, Mahalo~William
