Poem I Would Have Writ

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

Tension is who you 

think you should be. 

Relaxation is 

who you are. 

Chinese Proverb

The less you know,

the more you 

think you know.

Ray Stevens

My life has been the poem

I would have writ

But I could not both live

and utter it.     

Henry David Thoreau

Sky Eye & Flowers

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
After the rain, 

the sun will reappear. 

There is life. 

After the pain, 

the joy will still be here. 

Walt Disney

When you possess 

light within, you 

see it externally. 

       Anas Nin

Young people are drawing 

their map of the world, 

which is terra incognita to them. 

Older people are filling in 

the details of the seas and 

continents we have crossed. 

We are indeed the 

light of the world--

but only if our switch 

is turned on.

John Hagee

Where There Is Much Light

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

If we look at the world 

with a love of life, 

the world will reveal 

its beauty to us.

The ʻAhu ʻula (feather cloak in the Hawaiian language), and the mahiole (feather helmet) were symbols of the highest rank of the chiefly aliʻi class of ancient Hawaii. The feathered cloaks and capes were believed to provide spiritual protection for Hawaiian chiefs.

This mural graces Honolulu's airport.

Find something 

you’re passionate about 

and keep tremendously 

interested in it.

          Julia Child

Those who are willing 

to be vulnerable move 

among the mysteries.

Theodore Roethke

There is a strong shadow

where there is          

                     much light.

Lovely Day

 A L O H A  From Honolulu!

While you'll feel compelled 

to charge forward, it's 

often a gentle step back 

that will reveal to you 

where you and what you 

truly seek.

            Rasheed Ogunlaru

The rabbit represents humility, 

because she is quiet and soft 

and not self-asserting,

a quality which we must 

all possess when we go to 

the center of the world. 

         Black Elk

The windows of the houses – 

even if the house is ramshackle – 

are always beautiful because 

windows represent light

Mehmet Murat ildan

There is a window from 

one heart to another heart. 


I feel that it is healthier

 to look out at the world 

through a window than 

through a mirror. Otherwise, 

all you see is yourself and 

whatever is behind you.

Bill Withers

Oahu, Center Of My World

 A  L  O  H  A  From Honolulu!
After I fell in love with you, 

I fell in love with my life.

   Philippos Syrigos

"Omni-Reaching Papaya Tree"

Fine fruit is the flower 

of commodities. It is the 

most perfect union of the 

useful and the beautiful 

that the earth knows. 

Trees full of soft foliage; 

blossoms fresh with 

spring bounty; and, 

finally, fruit, rich, 

bloom-dusted, melting, 

and luscious. 

Andrew Jackson Downing

A Mango In The Streets. . . 

And the fruits will outdo 

what the flowers have promised.

François de Malherbe

. . . Pixie In The Sheets

A fruit is a vegetable 

with looks and money. 

Plus, if you let fruit rot, 

it turns into wine, 

something brussel sprouts

never do.

 P. J. O'Rourke

When Dreams Take Flight

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
When fears are grounded,

 dreams take flight.

To be noticed 

is to be loved.

 Ali Smith

In evaluating ourselves, 

we tend to be long on 

our weaknesses and 

short on our strengths.

   Craig D. Lounsbrough

Life may not be 

the party we hoped for, 

but while we're here 

we should dance!

Love You,

True And Kind

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

Do your little bit of good 

where you are; it’s those 

little bits of good put together 

that overwhelm the world.

Desmond Tutu

When words are both 

true and kind, they can 

change the world.


You can't have a wrong 

mentality about life and 

expect that you will see 

the bright side of life.

         Bamigboye Olurotimi

To be astonished is

 one of the surest ways 

of not growing old 

too quickly.


To talk well and eloquently 

is a very great art, but an 

equally great one is to 

know the right moment 

to stop.
