Lanikai FlowersThe daughters of Puamana were flowers that grewTo blossom and grow near cerulean blue Where moonlight rippled on waters divine,Where bright morning sun would rise and shine: Lehua, Hawaii's bright red flower,Whenever picked, the rains would showerLokelani, her family's exquisite roseWhose colored petals inspired prose. Ilima, named for Oahu's flower,A golden orange for every hour;Mokihana, the citrus flowering fruitUnique as Kauai's island root. These girls grew up to fit their namesBloomed and laughed and played their gamesAs happy girls of sand and seaNear sun swept waters, they were free. But then, as women, time would touchTheir loving hearts; they'd suffer much.And yet, in spite of all their pain,They'd rally to be whole again. Lehua, Lokelani, Ilima, Mokihana,The four daughters of Puamana.
