Peace is every step. The shining red sun is my heart. Each flower smiles with me. How green, how fresh all that grows. How cool the wind blows. Peace is every step. It turns the endless path to joy - Thich Nhat Hanh

Pōhuehue is a perennial vine which is found on sandy beaches. This vine was photographed on Kama'ole Beach . . it grows to about twenty-five to one hundred feet in length . . The roots of the pōhuehue grow in twining clusters and withstand sand, wind and erosion . . . The vines are used to chase fish into nets and surfers use pōhuehue vines to slap surface of the water to encourage big waves. Pōhuehue has many similar characteristics as morning glory. Pōhuehue also have small pink and soft blue bell shaped flowers .

Here follows an 'Olelo No'eau about the plant Pōhuehue

Holo pai pu luka,
I ka Pōhuehue
Aole, aole e loaa
Na niu a Kane ia oe.

Roll on, oh breaker, up the beach
To the Pōhuehue vines,
You cannot, you cannot reach
The coconut trees of Kane.
