NaPoWriMo Day 24 - Song of Kala

Todays’s NaPoWriMo prompt asks me to write about a particular fruit – your choice.

I wrote a poem about the Hawaiian Pineapple that is now an island knight serving and protecting his family, his home, and his Watermelon Chief.

Song of Kala

I am Kala Kahiki — Protector of the Seven Isles.
In the old ways, I am Aloha of Light.

I wield Leiomano — Club of Many Teeth.
Cleaver of all dark dwellers crawling out from the bog.

I wear Aumakua — Green Crown of War.
Seer of secrets and bitter of drowning souls.

My skin is Rind — Pine Bark Armor of the Sun.
Eternal rainfall has forged each binding into wooden rock.

Within my core beats Pele — Shoots of Courage.
Her fountain of molten sinew rumbles deep within me.

Through my blood flows Tahiti — Flashes in the Heavens.
Fiery juice and pulp fueling my fortitude.

My watchful sentry keeps the endless luau.
For I serve The Watermelon Boki — Chief Monarch of Royal Fruits.

In the new ways, I am Mahalo of Darkness.
For I am Kala Kahiki — Protector of the Seven Isles.
