Climbing and Arriving

A  L  O  H  A !
What Keeps the Clouds Aloft?

" I want to make

 exalted art. 

A successful image 

has pictorial lift. 

I am looking for 

whatever is up there. "

Frank Stella 

" When preparing

 to climb a mountain -

pack a light heart. "

who lift you up. "

Michelle Obama 

Someday is here. 
Deferring gratification 
served you well; 

it is late afternoon, 
golden time. 

Break out the ambrosia, 
distilled of your prudence.

Don't miss the savoring
of your laboring.

Thank You
for sharing this drink;
