Bird of Honolulu

A L O H A !
Honolulu's Official Bird
Manu O Ku

Pairs spend much of the day out at sea
where they are prodigious fishers.
They do not build nests, 
but rest their eggs in 
the natural crotch of trees and branches.
Last I heard, a pair were nesting 
on the grounds of Honolulu's City Hall 
called,  Honolulu Hale

Often Seen in High Aerial Ballet Together

Once you have tasted flight, 
you will forever walk the earth 
with your eyes turned skyward, 
for there you have been, 
and there you will always 
long to return.” 
 Leonardo da Vinci

" You wanna fly, 
you got to give up 
the s**t that 
weighs you down.” 
 Toni Morrison

" Look up at the tree-tops, 
and see how finely 
Nature finishes off her work there.
 See how the pines spire without end 
higher and higher. . . 
Leaves are of more various forms
 than the alphabets 
of all languages put together. . . 
there are hardly two alike, 
and each expresses 
its own character. "
                     Henry David Thoreau

Birds nest on branches, but they know the heights.

 " And sets me on my high places."
2 Samuel 22:34

" Awake. 
Be the witness 
of your thoughts. " 
The Buddha
