Kaulana Mahina is a calendar that counts in 10. By her reckoning the moon's time, allows the phases of time to pass with connectivity. Today and tonight the last of four po (phases) of KU end the times of upright nature. Led into its KU times by the Hoaka moon (the crescent) all things living pull into the upright. Ku rounds into the 'Ole Moons tomorrow, giving time for reflection and weeding the progress the garden, your garden. I was just out watering my carrots, collards, cabbage, beans, lettuce and 10-foot tall peas. It's the first garden I have planted in a long time. The record-breaking height of the peas astonishes and delights me. We have pictures to celebrate the cultivation. I water, string and support the ever climbing pea vines talking to them ever step of the way.
Tomorrow when 'Ole draws me into looking at weeding the stagnated parts of my garden I will look closely at the corners of my thinking that might need refreshing; brighten and commend the seeds growing vibrantly as a new tale(tail) of my mo'olelo seeks a way into my garden, my life. Refreshed with poi cocktails and family, I appreciate the journey and laugh. I have laundry to finish, filtered water to fill into jars: that's part of the good news.
Ku on. 'Ole tomorrow.
