Her Sea Friends
is the beautiful mermaid of
She is adorned with exquisitely detailed jewels, shells, royal
crown, and a Ni'ihau shell lei strung with hundreds of tiny
precious shells. Her tail shimmers with fine silver scales
and delicate, clear rainbows. On the edge of the river mouth
leading into the sea is a small cove
a large flat rock known as Poliolehua. According to Hawaiian legend,
residents long ago named it after Lehua who would rest on the rock,
her long, silken hair. Whenever anyone came near, she quickly slipped
into the deep fresh water. Once a young chief, deciding to catch her
his wife, snuck upon her stealthily. However Lehua, being instinctually
wild and keenly aware, sensed someone coming and vanished. He tried in
vain to swim after her, ending up in a clean sandy cave. It is said
no one has seen her since. She appears to us now, from her sanctuary
deep in the
sea, to lovingly remind us to preserve and protect our priceless oceans
and all its living creatures.
