Honu~by Roxi St. Clair





The Honu, or Hawaiian sea turtle, is the Hawaiian symbol of longevity, peace, good luck, humility, long life and the spirit within. Honu is the only indigenous reptile to the Hawaiian islands, and is revered as a sacred symbol of the life force and guardian spirit of the sea.

In salty balsam sprays
The kelp canopy sways
White caps, water blue
Coral, and starfish too
Flippers, gliding swift
Honu, the ocean’s gift.
