Hawai‘i Wisdom — April 2017

Hanalei Bay can been seen here from Kilohana Lookout in Koke‘e in March. The heavy clouds on this day briefly allowed a view of the North Shore. Kilohana Lookout is reachable through a four-mile hike starting at the Kalalau Lookout.

“Luʻuluʻu Hanalei i ka ua nui; kaumaha i ka noe o Alakaʻi.”

Heavily weighed is Hanalei in the pouring rain; laden down by the mist of Alaka‘i.

An expression used in dirges and chants of woe to express the burden of sadness, the heaviness of grief, and tears pouring freely like rain. Rains and fogs of other localities may also be used.
