'Alae 'ula Across all continents and oceans
Memories of the celestial sea linger
In the minds of men
And flow in the veins of all creatures. We are the elusive shadows
Giving voice to the night,
Across velleys of singing crickets,
Where snails once sang,
And light rippled across still water
To the breathing of dreaming dragons; Shape-shifters pierced the darkness Like shooting stars,
Or travelled as birds
In a cloak of dark feathers.
