Tough Side Gentle

A  L  O  H  A !
 Marvelous Sparkling Weekend Here!

Too many of us
 are tough outside
but wavering inside; 
Let's be confident 
enough inside 
to be gentle
 outwardly.

Friendly Honu (Sea Turtle) 
Adorns Construction Fence, 
Ala Moana Blvd.
I like the sea-defused light
throbbing on his shell
as it does in real life!
[and they do make 
eye contact on occasion]

I'm so happy you shared this with I Heart Macro… it is a lovely contrast to the blizzard white outside our windows here in NH.

Brian Miller said...

nice quote by you...i think we toughen our outside to protect ourselves...only to keep far too many things inside that eat us up....
