Fleeting Gold

A  L  O  H  A  !

"But especially he loved to run

 in the dim twilight. . . 

 listening to the subdued and sleepy murmurs. . .

 reading signs and sounds

 as a man may read a book,

 and seeking for the mysterious something 

that called -- 


 waking or sleeping,

 at all times, for him to come."

   Jack London 

(The Call of the Wild)

"Life is not a matter of holding good cards,
 but sometimes, playing a poor hand well." 

Jack London 

"One cannot violate
 the promptings of one's nature
without having that nature
 recoil upon itself."

Jack London


Hawaii's sun 
in the Autumn

Sleeps in
larks about
retires early

Less cruel
fully lovely to contemplate

as a mature
and beautiful
