Written by Sam Liʻa Kalāinaina with music arranged by Eddie Kamae. The story shares how Sam was inspired to write this song after flying over the Waiʻanae mountain range on an interisland flight. He weaves together symbols of Oʻahu such as the ʻilima flower and fills the song with symbolism, visual imagery, and sensory experiences.
