Night Charm for You

A   L   O   H   A  !

"  From Ghoulies and ghosties 

and long-leggety beasties 

And things that go bump

 in the night, 

Good Lord, deliver us."

Thanks for visiting!

" Life loves 
to be taken by
 the lapel and told,
 'I'm with you kid.
 Let's go.' "

Maya Angelou

Any piece of writing,
from a letter to a book
can fly or
it can fail.

It might be a Palace
of  Thought, Wonder,

Or it may be
just a pile of words,
taking the same hours 
of assembly 
but never taking off.

Think of a violin.
(Did you HEAR 
a violin when you
thought of it?)

A woman good with
tools, could cut,
shape, polish,
all of the parts
that go into a violin.

But an instrument maker
turns those same parts
into an instrument,
not just a novelty.

It takes more
than piling up words
to make sense, 
to persuade, to heal.

Too many books
are false fronts like a
 pioneer town.

I trust few words.
Among them:

"Thank You, dear Friends"

I like to mean
what I say.

           Fondly, Cloudia
