Hope Hop Hover

A  L  O  H  A !
 " If people did not 
sometimes do silly things,
nothing intelligent
would ever get done. "

Wittgenstein















" 'Tis my faith
that every flower
enjoys
the air it breathes! "

 
Wordsworth














" Cynicism 
is the intellectual cripple's 
substitute for 
intelligence. "

Russell Lynes















" I had to create 
an equivalent
 for what I felt 
about 
what I was looking at - 
not copy it. "

Georgia O'Keeffe


   >  <  }  }  ( ° >




The ground was hard.
But I learned to hop
to hope
and with great effort
to hover,
briefly.

Glaze-wonders dazzled.
Generous breezes
hinted,
then moved me;

I could
glide!

But lift equaled
effort-
until it didn't.

Thy sky
thy clouds
they comfort me!

And touching the 
ground,
the Earth,
is no longer
a 'come-down'
but
 benediction
till at last
one day
I float away
beyond the final 
effort.


YOUr Visit
makes my day!


Thanks so much

You always have the best quotes Cloudia, but now I have a taste for your own words, and of course gorgeous images.
