Glyph of the word 'noe'.


  • (n.) leaf
  • (v.) to have leaves (used with trees that have leaves)
  • (adj.) leafy (i.e. to describe a tree that has leaves)
  • (nm.) a boy’s given name

Noe falele i kopoloi.
“Green leaves on a little tree.”

Notes: The iku for noe was one of those iku whose execution I was unhappy with. I fixed it and I think it’s better, but I’m not sure it’s quite right still. All in all, though, it’s look pretty good from a distance.

I am not sure, though, what it means… I think I had an idea of a tree and a floaty leaf, and that that’s somehow embedded in the image (in a non-literal way). It just kind of looks leafy to me.

I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s Kamakawi Word of the Day. It came a bit late, though, but that seems to be the way I’m doing things lately (a little late).

Oh, hang on! I had a picture for today’s post! Here it is:

A nice fancy tree.
