Ka hua o ka ho'opane'e

Na Malia Melemai

POSTED:



Synopsis: Procrastination can work in your favor, but sometimes it is not so favorable.

E o'u mau makamaka e heluhelu nei i kēia wahi mo'olelo nūpepa, 'o kekahi hemahema o ka hale kanaka ka ho'opane'e 'ana i ka hana. Eia na'e, 'ike 'ia paha ka ha'awina e a'o ai ma ke ola. Mai noho 'oe a kakali o hala auane'i ka Pu'ulena.

Ma Mānoa, ma ka mokupuni 'o O'ahu i noho ai kekahi 'ohana. Aia nā kumu lā'au like 'ole e ulu ana ma ka pā hale. Hākilo aku ka wahine i waho o ka puka aniani o ka hale. Aia kekahi kumu manakō kahiko a nui loa ma ka pā hale. He mau lālā nui kona e lewa ana ma luna o kahi e kū ai nā ka'a. “E ia nei, āhea 'oe e 'oki ai i kēlā mau lālā o ke kumu manakō?” i nīnau aku ai ka wahine i kāna kāne. Pane akula ke kāne, “Eia au ke kakali nei 'o ka 'ae mai o ko'u hoa i kāna pahiolo mīkini.” Pane akula ka wahine, “'Eā, mai poina. He hua ko ka ho'opane'e!” Hala kekahi mau pule a mau nō ka waiho 'ana o ke kumu manakō me ia luluhe mai o nā lālā.

'O ia ho'opane'e nō na'e a hiki mai ke kau e pua ai ka manakō. Nīnau hou ka wahine i kāna kāne no ka 'oki 'ana i nā lālā. “E ku'u kāne ē, e hua koke mai ana ka hua manakō. Ua poina kāu hana?” “'A'ole. 'O ia ana ka'u hana o ka hopena pule. Mai hopohopo. He kō mai koe,” i 'ōlelo hō'alo'alo hou aku ai ke kāne me ka leo pākīkē nō ho'i. A puka mai kēlā hua ma ka lehelehe, pā maila ka makani ikaika a helele'i nā pua manakō. “'Eā, mai poina. He hua ko ka ho'opane'e!”

A hala he mau pule hou aku, ho'omaka maila ka luhe 'ana iho o nā lālā i ka nui o nā hua. I ka 'alawa 'ana a'e o nā maka o ka wahine, 'ike ihola 'o ia, 'a'ole maika'i ka 'oki 'ana i ka manakō 'oi hua ka hua. No laila, pi'i kona uluhua i ke kāne, a 'ōlelo akula me ka leo'a'aka, “Hua maila nā hua manakō. Ua hala ka wā kūpono. Aia a pau ke kau manakō, 'o ia ka wā e 'oki ai. No laila, i lawa nō a pau ke kau hua, e 'oki 'ia mai!” Ha'i akula ke kāne, “'O ia ihola nō ka'u e kali nei.” Pane hou akula ka wahine, “Mai poina. He hua ko ka ho'opane'e!”

A pau ke kau manakō, ho'omaopopo hou akula ka wahine i ke kāne e 'oki i ka manakō. 'Ae maila kēlā, “'Ae. 'Apōpō nō au e hana ai.” I ia pō na'e, ua hiki mai ka makani 'ino. Lohe 'ia nō ma waho e hū pūkalakī mai ana. E naue māewaewa ana ho'i nā lālā o ke kumu manakō. He ua nui ke loku mai ana a lohe 'ia nō ho'i ka pakīpakī 'āma'amau 'ana o nā paka ua ma luna o ke kaupoku. Ma mua o ka hiamoe 'ana, 'ōlelo akula ke kāne, “Mai hopohopo. E kō ana nō ka hana i ka lā 'apōpō.” I ke kulu na'e o ke aumoe, kani maila kahi pohā leo nui. 'O ia nō ka haki 'ana o kekahi lālā nunui o ke kumu manakō. 'A'ohe i 'emo, lohe 'ia ka pahū o ka lālā e ku'u ana ma luna o kekahi mea. 'O ka mea ia i ala ai ke kāne a me kāna wahine. Holo kikī akula lāua i waho e nānā ai. Kāhāhā! 'O ka pālaha ihola nō ia o ke ka'a a ke kāne ma lalo o ke kaumaha o ka lālā lā'au. I ia manawa nō, ho'opuka akula ka wahine i ka hua o ke a'oa'o, penei, “Ā la'a! Ā la'a lā! 'O ia ihola ka hua o ka ho'opane'e!”

(He ho'oponopono kīna'u. I kēlā Pō'aono aku nei, he mau kīna'u ko ka mo'olelo, 'o ka mua, 'o ka 'ehā ia o ka 'Aha I Ulu I Ke Kumu, a 'o kekahi, ua pela hewa 'ia ka inoa o ka mea kākau, penei kona inoa — Lia O’Neill Keawe. LH)

You mean polynesian-Hawaiians. There is no such thing as "native Hawaiians". Everything on these islands came from somewhere else even the Polynesians.

As much as you hate it Polynesians came here about 1270 A.D., that is the fact that you "hate" to accept!

Oh really not a fact, eh David Rogers? Ask Terry Hunt, Professor of Anthropology at U of H Manoa. Or for the people that live in a factual world, not the world of personal attacks and ignorance (like David Rogers) Google or Bing: "East Polynesia colonized faster and more recently than previously thought". It's time for David Rogers to go back to school. Oh, and one more thing David Rogers, the Earth is not the center of the Universe either. LOL

Your "LOL" posts under last week's column say it all. You are just an April Fool trying to be antagonistic, and you take nothing and no one here seriously. That is yet another reason to dismiss you and your hot air. You have no educational background to discuss anything about Hawaii and its people. You are an April Fool every day.

You have no credibility David Rogers. I beat your behind every week with facts. You never have any, just like your comment here. Just personal attacks with no substance. And you claim to be "educated". LOL

David Rogers is a joke. He goes back to columns he got scrubbed from and puts his new remarks under Terii_Kelii a year later. Go to 4-28-12 column to see his disgraceful actions.
