And Then a Dragon

A  L  O  H  A  from  Honolulu!
Hear surf?  Feel sand?
 " How we
spend our days 
is, of course,
how we spend
our lives. "
                 Annie Dillard









Tenacious Beach Palm
" If we take care
 of the moments, 
the years will
 take care of 
themselves. "
                     Maria Edgeworth










Pampered Garden Palm
" Success is 
following the pattern 
of life one enjoys most. "
                           Al Capp












. . . And Then a Happy Dragon. . .

Linking to
Our World Tuesday

We fear to stop
even for an hour;
We always seem 
to be running,
striving 
to catch up.

What if we
get left behind?!

Even in retirement
we hurry 
to be seen  
remaining viable.

But what if
we do stop?
What if we brave
that demon?

Is it a dragon:
fearsome
but holding
a treasure?

What we 
sacrifice
goes
to the cleaner,
returning refreshed
smelling sweet.
[like ourselves]

One may even
feel
'Good Riddance'

Get that monkey
off your back

Thank You
Friend!

I missed the days when we used to sit on the sand and feel the waves lapping on our legs. Always love to hear the sound of waves.

I make a point of having at least one 'me' day a week, no phone calls, no getting in the car and dashing around.. I looooove that day :)
