I kēlā me kēia mana`o
-My Beloved Hawaii-
I dream of you at night when I am sleeping.
I am always there-in that place I call home.
I hear you calling, and smell your fragrance, that is only you.
I breathe your air, and want to be home.
On a clear moonlit night through the Ohia trees…
I felt your love for me.
Adrienne Kawamura moved to Seattle from the Big Island in 2000. A former dancer with Hawaii Ballet Theater and Ballet Hawaii, she now owns a small business in Edmonds, Washington. She published a book of poetry called Through the Night in 2005. “I am passionate about poetry because volumes are spoken in very few words. I think it touches our soul and reads our very thoughts that may have never been spoken.”
