Madam Pele, Goddess of Lava and Volcanoes

Madam Pele, Goddess of Lava and Volcanoes

Pele’s Journey.

Daughter of Kahinalii and Kane-hoalani
insubordinate and disrespectful Pele
enticer of husbands
cast out from Honua-mea, in Kahiki
pursued by sister, Na Maka o Kaha’i.

Kai a Kahinalii
“Here my daughter, you have need of ocean
to carry your canoe.”

Surround the mountains –
Hale-a-ka-la, Mauna-kea, Mauna-loa
till their peaks peek from ocean gift.

Kaula, tiny isle,
a home for Pele?
Tunnelling deep to fire
quenched by flooding ocean –
sister sent.

 Lehua, tiny isle,
a home for Pele?
Tunnelling deep to fire
quenched by flooding ocean –
sister sent.

Niihau, tiny isle,
a home for Pele?
Tunnelling deep to fire
quenched by flooding ocean –
sister sent.

Kauai, large isle,
a home for Pele?
Tunnelling deep to fire
quenched by flooding ocean –
sister sent.

Oahu, double mountained
Kaala, the fragrant
Kona-hua-nui;
useless, unsatisfactory chain.

Molokai
Lanai
failures as before.

Maui, western mount,
Hale-a-ka-la immense and sulphurous,
Pele settled in delving and stirring
the lava and fumes.

South-east to Hawaii
across Ale-nui-haha channel
Firepit bubbling beneath the crust
awaiting release
awaiting Pele
home at last in Kilauea
making the Big Island
Navel of the Earth –
Ka piko o ka honua.
