I was just practicing for the big luau tonight. Have we met? I’m Poni! That means purple in Hawaiian—I’m sure you can guess why that’s my name! I may be the biggest Rainbow Pal, but I’m also the most gentle! I always walk very softly around smaller creatures like Pua and Kokio. I am learning how to be graceful by dancing the hula. Hula is a traditional Hawaiian dance. It’s very lovely! Every day I collect beautiful flowers and shimmering shells to make leis for the Rainbow Pals. I hope we can be friends, too!
You might think that playing the Pahu Drum and hula dancing at the same time is difficult. And it is! It takes a lot of practice and a lot of concentration. But it’s worth it, because it’s fun! Hard work always pays off.
This is where I am happiest—surrounded by flowers! Everyone knows flowers are beautiful. Did you know they are also delicious? There are many types of flowers to eat in the South Pacific. Tell me if you’d like some recipes!
Enjoy every day!
Isn’t this a lovely photo of me? I like it, because it shows how happy I am! Life is meant to be lived. Every day hold a new adventure. All you have to do it open your arms and embrace it!
