Afternoons Discerning

A   L   O   H   A  !

" Tears of joy 
are like the summer rain drops
 pierced by sunbeams. "

Hosea Ballou

 " Know your enemy 
and know yourself 
and you can fight
 a hundred battles 
without disaster. "

Sun Tzu

" We take a handful of sand
 from the endless landscape
of awareness around us
 and call that
 handful of sand,
the world. "

Pixilated Pixie, ice-pick poke
Filled with color till I choke
Emotion swells, escaping hells
Afternoons discerning
What the warbler tells.

Very threatening cat's paw loudia - or maybe it is a friendly cat

Cloudia said...

DELIGHTED you loved Pixie's paw as much as I did. She is enamored of her 'scratch box' right now and leaves the furniture be - GOOD kitty.

GOOD friends! THANKS, each of YOU!

Thank you for the second quote. Which makes one wonder, what the real challenge is.

Please have you all a good Tuesday.
