With my hula brothers and sisters,
A lei of friendship is formed,
Stringing our souls together with chant.
We sway to the rhythms of ancient voices,
Calling from beyond the veil, pulling us gently
Into a new realm of consciousness.
The cadence quickens, heartbeats match the fast paced steps; feet pound, bodies sway, skirts fly, hands relate stories of guardian spirits and long ago kings.
We relive Hawaii of old if only for a brief moment.
Such is the magic, the spirit, of hula.
