None Has Quite Escaped My Smile

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Light Bite
Where the bright seraphim
in burning row
Their loud uplifted
angel trumpets blow.
John Milton

Greenly Relief

i thank You God for 
most this amazing
day: for the leaping 
greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; 
and for everything
which is natural which is 
infinite which is yes

(now the ears 
of my ears awake 
and now the 
eyes of my eyes 
are opened)

Edward Estlin Cummings 

This poem was originally published in Xaipe1 
(New York: Oxford University Press, 1950),

In masks outrageous and austere, The years go by in single file; But none has merited my fear, And none has quite escaped my smile.
Elinor Wylie


No one chooses evil 
because it is evil; 
but only mistakes it 
for happiness, 
the good he seeks. 

Mary Shelley

803 & 809

Morning is nature's way of saying: 
Live life one more time, 
make a difference, 
touch one heart, 
encourage one mind 
and inspire one soul.
