Highlights from the Haiku Ho'olaulea

Some quick pics from the Haiku Flower Festival, aka Haiku Ho'olaulea this past Saturday, March 31st.

Weather was beautiful and sunny, with strong late afternoon winds. There were lots of cars parked on the highway and along Pauwela Road. 

The highlight for me was the Waikikena Foundation poi pounding and Hawaiian education booth. I watched children pound taro, the ele ele koko variety, and talked with a stone cutter.  I've started a post on that, but have to organize my notes. 

Poi pounding for the children.

I missed the WS Merwin poetry reading, but it wasn't listed anyhow. Probably happened shortly after the mayor's talk.

Some interesting talks earlier in the day by the Haiku Living Legacy. 

The book sale was in the back of the grounds, by the school garden.

The Haiku Flower Fairy!

The Native Hawaiian Plant Society teaching haku lei making.

Beautiful Haiku hippies and flower children.

Sign for kau kau (meaning food).

Sierra Club plant booth, usually there every year.
