Kiha Wahine


Kiha Wahine

Silvery lithe goddess
Rapture in an emerald sea
lustorous rainbow pearls
caress elysian chants
raven tresses feather
torrid blue sky
pagan blazes crimson
Kiha Wahine, she vanish!
aswirl in ardent flames!

a 1988 Hawaii State Arts Council award winning poem
by Gaya Taliaferro-Tinmahan
