Glass Bottom Boat on my Heart

A    L    O    H    A   !

" Everything beckons to us 
to perceive it,
murmurs 
at every turn 
Remember me! ’
A day we passed,
 too busy to receive it,
will yet unlock us 
all its treasury. "

Rilke




" Use the occasion,
 for it passes 
swiftly. "

Ovid



 " Ancient lovers believed
a kiss
would literally unite
 their souls,
 because the spirit
was said
to be carried
in one's breath. "

Eve Glicksman

Thank YOU my far-flyers
for coming so far

to rest in 
Waikiki sand
for a while

to share,
to smile,
together

                      Warmly, cloudia

I can sit easily on the stoop and wave to each passing opportunity, inhale some more smoke and think, "one of is an ass."

Hi Cloudia,
This is my first visit to your blog. The pictures and music are delightful! I'd love to visit Hawaii one day.
Thanks,
Holly

Llevo un tiempo bastante liado y no tengo mucha ocasión de corresponder a las visitas de mis amigos blogueros. En todo caso por aquí me tienes. Estupendas siempre las cosas que nos dejas.

Saludos y un abrazo.
