Sunny California Sunday

A  L  O  H  A !

We enjoyed a wonderful sunny day,
the kind that dazzles the senses
with bluer than blue skies
and palm trees gesticulating
before calmly moving
clouds of steamy white.

The Hawaiians of old 
read messages in the clouds, 
and I learned it
partly from them. But
Bay Area skies had been
muted shades of Winter
bringing blessed rain
since we arrived.
They spoke a language
that didn't say much to
me. But that is changing
as I remember
the glory I loved here 
in Summertime.
All on a sunny Sunday.

These clouds are beginning
to make sense -

And what
a refreshing sense of humor
they have!

The sun and wood  
skies & water
are singing to me
good right now.

This is a beauty equal
to any. All wrapped in
sparkling 55 degrees
         High temp. [12.7 C]


Hope your world
is dazzling you today!
Thanks so much
for dropping by.
          Fondly, cloudia
