Teresa and the Vandellas

A   L   O   H   A !
Let's Slow Down enough 
to Be Present.
So we can Notice
More of what is
Right before us.

Ocean refuses
No River;
Open Road
No Rover.

So Drift on over,
Lover of Souls
of Sights
and Smells and

Thus we 
Ruthless in Peace
With the Patience
of the Disabled.

Teresa of Avila
Wrote the Rockin`
She got the Most
Out of Everything
the Universe threw
at her.

So strike up
the Yawn.
Stare out at
the Lawn
Painting the 
Mural of Your
Dusk and Dawn. . .

(Love Is Like a) Heat Wave by Martha and The Vandellas on Grooveshark


Thank YOU
for Visiting!
               Warmly, Cloudia

Thank you. I need this reminder today as my mind races forward along paths which may or may not exist. I needed the reminder, and always welcome the beauty.
