Haiku Poem – IPU

sincere heart
slowly made with love
clean ipu make

黙々と打ち込む姿勢イプ作り
もくもくと うちこむしせい イプづくり

I teach IPU Heke making to students that demonstrate an inner purity towards learning hula. Crafting an ipu Heke requires very little skill. With a little practice anyone can succeed at crafting these. However, what is important is the heart and spirit of the crafter.

私がイプヘケ作りを教える人は、真摯な気持ちでフラを学ぶ生徒さん達です。イプヘケ作りに難しい技術は必要ありません。少し練習すれば、誰でも簡単に作ることが出来ます。しかし、大切なことは、作り手が、心をこめて、イプヘケの製作に打ち込む姿勢です。
