Sunset Soliloquy

  A  L  O  H  A  !       
Aloha means 
a LOT more
 than "Hello" "Goodbye"
It is "Hello with Love" 
and also 
"Goodbye with Love."
A Hawaiian Namaste. 
Let us say proper 
Aloha Farewell 
to a Day- 

"...And great cloud-continents 

of sunset-seas.  "
Thomas Bailey Aldrich,

Dragon Follows the Sun
 'If the sky 
 could dream, 
 it would dream 
 of dragons.' 
              Ilona Andrews 

Dragon Pause Portrait
Play - DO!

" Rise up nimbly 
and go on your 
strange journey 
to the ocean of 
Leave and 
don't look away 
from the sun 
as you go, 
in whose 
light you're 
sometimes crescent, 
sometimes full. "

" Come sit with me!
 Let us drink
 the holy wine 
of happiness. "

" Tonight 
the moon kisses 
the stars." 

Good Night, my Dears!
                  Fondly, cloudia

Thanks for explaining what aloha really means. It has far more depth than I had thought.

And what a sublime soliloquy you have given us.
Serenity and beauty - in vision and verb. Thank you.
