Glyph of the word 'mo'. and Glyph of the word 'mo'.


  • (syl.) glyph for the syllable mo in the Kamakawi syllabary
  • (n.) swallow (the bird)

Ku ale mo ko!
“The swallows have returned!”

Notes: The big deal with San Juan Capistrano, apparently, is that they have a great migration of swallows every year. I’ve never seen them myself, but I have seen the souvenirs they spawn.

For some reason, the shape of this iku caught my fancy, and it became the base of quite a number of other iku. Look out for it in the future!
