How Deep You Gotta Go?

A  L  O  H  A !
Get lost in love, and 
hate won’t find you.

I am serious as a 
heart attack about NOT 
being too serious!

We all have a core of 
basic Human goodness. 
The question is how deep 
you have to go to find it.

Raindrop Moments

A  L  O  H  A !

“We know only too well 
that what we are doing is 
nothing more than 
a drop in the ocean. - 

- But if the drop 
were not there, 

- the ocean would be
missing something.” 
                  Mother Teresa

Each Raindrop
makes it's own "TAP!"
on my tin roof.

Even in a torrential storm,
as in a chorus,
I can hear each voice
sing it's single note
just for me. 

Savor YOUr

Seconds and Eternities

A  L  O  H  A !
 Beyond the fence,
Beyond the gate
Geese swim stately,
Morning waits

 Green  and Red
Quite got in my head
some watch a screen
I prefer Nature instead!

Sometimes, the smallest things
loom largest in your memories.
Sometimes seconds
can last eternities!

in your heart, life has 
accomplished its final 
miracle: it has become 
a fairy tale.”

simple and frugal a 
thing is happiness: a 
glass of wine, a roast chestnut, 
a wretched little brazier, 
the sound of the sea. 
Nothing else.”
