Haiku – Hula Girls

Moving – swishing – sway

Dancing to the island beat

With light skirts flowing

Just needed a little tropical break tonight.  I hope you will take a moment and just breath in the islands and the magic they hold.

Traditional hula skirts are call Pa’u skirts and are made from brightly dyed fabric. The top of a Pa’u skirt contains casings that house long cords. Hulu dancers wrap the Pa’u skirt around their waist and tie the cords together on their left sides. Pa’u skirts come in different styles. Some contain a single cord and consist of a single panel of fabric. Other Pa’u skirts are made from multiple fabric panels with multiple rows of cording at the top. You can make a Pa’u skirt for yourself using printed cotton or polyester fabric.

After me and my family went to Hawaii and spent a couple of weeks there, we fell in love with the hula dance.  We also grew fond of the green, grassy skirts that are worn during the dance.
