Poem by Karin Lisa Atkinson
"Check Out Your Attitude, To The All, The Many, The Everyday Everything"

Why this "Kona" photo with this "Afghanistan" poem - metaphors:

"The Kona Winds" and storms are associated with cyclones with 'central pressures' which usually last for a day. Considerable damage is caused, and when passing through mountain gaps and over mountains, downsloped winds can gust over 100 mph/165 km/h, which causes much of the destruction.

"The Rainbow" in Hawaii is perceived as the pathway that the souls of the dead take to travel to the heavenly realms. The rainbow is a symbol of transformation, and those who can freely travel between the upper world and the lower reaches live like gods among humans, enjoying earthly prosperity and abundance.

The Rainbow is featured as a pathway between dimensions in Hawaiian mythology as it does in various cultures round the world, it also acts as a footstool for Malanaikuaheahea, the wife of the legendary transpacific voyager and astronomer whose name, Maliki’i is also the Hawaiian term for the Pleiades star cluster from which the first Hawaiians came to earth.

One of the island legends predict that the return of rainbows to earth that the world is poised for a big change.

The rainbow is often linked to transformation and peace.

To the ancient Hawaiians, babies destined to become great chieftains (leaders) are born with rainbows over their homes, and are accompanied by rainbows throughout their lives.
