Hawaiian Sunset Secret of Seconds

A  L  O  H  A !

"Almost nothing
 need be said 
when you have eyes." 
                         Tarjei Vesaas

" It is our choices 
that show us 
what we truly are, 
far more 
than our abilities. "
                              J.K. Rowling 

“A large drop of sun
 lingered on the horizon -

 and then dripped over 
and was gone,

and the sky 
was brilliant over the spot 
where it had gone, 
and a torn cloud
like a bloody rag, 
hung over the spot of its going.
 And dusk crept over the sky 
from the eastern horizon, 
and darkness crept 
over the land 
from the east.” 
 John Steinbeck, 
The Grapes of Wrath


is an amazing thing.
Feels like movement
but is really one
after another.

When you pause
and occupy the moment
a spark of REAL
jumps the gap
that you left.

Allow an Angel
to pass.
Then what sinks
and what arises
over your horizon
will illuminate your
as well as those
of others.

Thank YOU
for Shining Here
with Us!
                Fondly, Cloudia

One NOW after another is a good description.

Especially to counter the speed at which time seems to be moving when watching the sun drop off the horizon.
