The Seal, The Ant, and Ducks

A L O H A From Honolulu!
On Saturday morning
I walk to the beach.

It's just a short distance from
where I walk by every morning;
But on Saturday I cross Kalia
and walk down Paoa Place
between the Hale Koa,
and the Hilton.

Today I saw a black feral cat 
catch a grey dove
pulling it down!

But perhaps being unschooled
in the hunt, or surprised,
kitty lost her grip in the flutter
as dove flew up and away.
What else will we see?

A blessed haze lies upon all
this region, wherein is held
a little more of the sunlight
than other places hold,
and a little more of the
summer's humming music
of birds and bees; so that
men walk through it
as through a faery place,
and feel greater joy and
wonder than they ever
afterward remember.
   H.P. Lovecraft

Resting Hawaiian Monk Seal! Full grown!

Ocean is more ancient
than the mountains, and
freighted with the memories
and the dreams of Time.
H.P. Lovecraft

Laziness Personified.
We do not see them 
hunting, and traveling
hundreds of
miles at sea!

Meet my ant
on a crepe ginger blossom

When you meet with
your old friends, you
recollect some of the finest
moments of your life
and find yourself in a
joy that has no comparison. Syed Badiuzzaman

There's nothing half so pleasant
as coming home again. Margaret Elizabeth Sangster

Love You,
