'Ohi'a lehua

Shelter tree and food source
Endangered I'iwu bird
First to grow on lava
Two young lovers denied
Pele holds very dear
A flower picked brings rain
 
  • I'iwu:

    The ʻiʻiwi (Drepanis coccinea) or scarlet honeycreeper is a species of Hawaiian honeycreeper. The ʻiʻiwi is a highly recognizable symbol of Hawaiʻi. The ʻiʻiwi is the third most common native land bird in the Hawaiian Islands.

  • Pele:

    In Hawaiian religion, Pele is the goddess of volcanoes and fire and the creator of the Hawaiian Islands.
