 Friendship Poems

Friendship is one of life's greatest treasures. Friends that are loyal are always there to make you laugh when you are down, they are not afraid to help you avoid mistakes and they look out for your best interest. This kind of friend can be hard to find, but they offer a friendship that will last a lifetime. Other friends may not be quite as loving. The pain caused by a friendship marred by betrayal is not easy to overcome. In fact, many poems find their inspiration from the joy brought about by a loving friendship or the pain caused by a failed friendship.

Nature Poems


Whether one is watching a thrilling thunderstorm or looking up at a mighty tree, the experience of nature is one of awe. One cannot help but marvel at the intricate design of a single leaf, or the roar of a great waterfall. Time spent in nature is time spent realizing that you don't know it all and that you never will. The earth is meant to be enjoyed by its inhabitants. That includes keeping it in the pristine condition in which it was discovered. Everyone has a part of the earth that they relate to the most. Whether it is a majestic mountain range, a roaring waterfall, a bouquet of flowers, or the calm of the woods, these are places to get to know oneself and build bonds with family.

tongan


Tongan handicrafts
Mat Weaving - The mats are hand woven from strips of pandanus leaves. They are using the mats for special occasions such as births, deaths, and weddings. Woven mats are commonly  used for bedding and flooring and they are often passed down from generation to generation. In death, Tongans are wrapped in mats as a sign of respect and they are also dressed in black.


Tongan Foods
Food in daily life - our Tongan foods are root crops. They are cassava, kumara, taro , yam, giant taros etc . All root crops are cooked by boiling water or by underground oven (a Umu) and is usually sauced with Coconut cream.  Tonga also have their own leaf foods which are taro leaves (lu) and Tongan spinach (Pele). Tongan meats are free range chicken (Moa Tonga), Free range pigs (puaka) and Pacific pigeon. Tongan food is made up of foods from the land and the sea and they are also hunters and gatherers of land and sea.


Tongan dance
Our tongan dances are stories sung by singers and acted out by the dancers.  The words are represented by the movements of the hands and feet. A punake is a combination poet, composer and a choreographer, who writes the songs then trains and leads the performers.
Standing girls perform the ula. Unlike these, the kalao or wardance, was has no  accompanying song . The stamping feet, shouts of the leader, and rhythm of the drums combine to make this dance popular amongst visitors.
