As If You Have Nowhere To Go

 A L O H A From Honolulu!
Sky Slash @ Sunset

A fiery blade across the sky,
Canvas painted
with twilight's kiss.
From crimson red
to golden hues,
A symphony of colors,
Draping the world
In gold.

With every swipe of your squeegee,
You give us all a clearer view.
Teaching us to appreciate
The beauty in the everyday.
You leave the world a little brighter.
Thank you, window washers,
for all that you do.

Welcome, my little,
To this beautiful life.
On your first beach day
We walk hand-in-hand
You giggle as the waves
Reach your toes,

 May you always find
This wonder everyday.
The waves of joy ever
crash upon your shore,
Welcome to this beautiful life.
We'll leave our footprints here.

I live by letting things happen.

Most people cannot believe
that just walking as if
you have nowhere to go
is enough.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Love You,
 Cloudia & Pixie

How Lovely! Just like those young folks coloring their hair pink and purple, or blue, Miss Pixie has acquired blue whiskers! Purrfectly beautiful! Linda in Kansas

Teresa said...

Love the colors in your sky shot! I also like your sentiments about the child at the beach. Pixie looks like she wants to go play in the waves, too.

Cloudia said...

Thank you pal

Elephant's Child said...

Beautiful skies.
And all thanks to so many people who do jobs that I cannot/could not do.

Sandi said...

Lovely golden sky, Cloudia!

William Kendall said...

Pixie is quite alert.

Beautiful sky and mural!
Pixie want to go to the beach and play in the sand.

Take care, have a wonderful week!

John A Hill said...

For some of us, having nowhere to go is the best feeling!

RedPat said...

I may go for a walk this afternoon with no where to go. It should be fun. ;-)

Cloudia said...

Indeed Pat!
Thanks EACH of you 😊

Martha Jane Orlando said...

Once again, I enjoyed the words and the photos, Cloudia. I especially enjoyed the one of the father and child on the beach. And wherever we walk, or how, it's never a waste of our time.

Catalyst said...

Ah the blue-bewhiskered cat. What a treat!

roentare said...

Love the firefighters coming down the walls. Very good image

Vagabonde said...

Your sky is glorious but the picture of the window washers makes me dizzy – I never could do such a task. I also enjoy your cat photo; never have enough cat photos to look at. As for the the Thich Nhat Hanh quotation – I love all his quotations, and have them in several books. Actually I read one of his poems at my daughter’s wedding “walking meditation.”

Mae Travels said...

Great mural — the cartoonish colors are very effective.

magiceye said...

Marja said...

Kay said...

That poem for the little one brought back such lovely memories and now my son is having that same experience. Sigh…
Have a wonderful week, my friend.

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I love how you gave credit to window washers. They have a really dangerous and thankless job. Love Pixie's look today.

Mike said...

In the second picture, are they racing up or down?

Iris Flavia said...

Can you send the window cleaners over? It´s only ground floor, too! ;-)
Pixie is very serious looking.
To a mindful day, hence.

Bertiebo said...

Lovely cat. Wonderful sunset and a very nice mural!

Sami said...

I certainly couldn't do a window washer job, heights scare me! Nice mural and quotes.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals Cloudia.

Bill said...

Another beautiful sky, thank you!
