Happy in Plain Sight

A  L  O  H  A !
Tierra - Together by Miscelaneous - Various Artists on Grooveshark
Aladdin's Lamp

" Anger
 is a wind
 which blows out 
the lamp of the mind. "

Robert Green Ingersoll 

" Twilight 
drops her curtain down,
 and pins it 
with a star. "

Lucy Maud Montgomery 

" Remember 
to be gentle 
with yourself 
and others. 
We are all 
children of chance 
and none can say 
why some fields will blossom 
while others lay brown 
beneath the August sun."

Kent Nerburn 


Be gentle
gentle friend
with yourself
first of all.

Others may be selling,
or zombies - 

What is that
to YOU
child of stars?

Let them joust
popular phantoms.
How could you
wake them?

Be You
too busy
the evident.

You Deserve it.
Thanks for finding it
                              Warmly, cloudia

Anger should always be avoided, and coming here I'm filled with peace and beauty for my eyes and soul! Especially when you bring out those lovely laughing Bird of Paradise flowers! :)
