Turn Tides Scatter

A L O H A From Honolulu!

A single poem, alone
can turn tides scatter galaxies
and burst forth with rivers
from paradise.
 Sanober Khan

Ravenala madagascariensis,
traveller's palm or East-West palm,
from Madagascar. It is not a
true palm but a member of the family
     Strelitziaceae (Bird of Paradise)

 If you want to know the truth
of who you are, walk
until not a person knows your name.
Travel is the great leveler,
the great teacher, bitter as medicine,
crueler than mirror-glass.
A long stretch of road will teach you
more about yourself than a
hundred years of quiet introspection.
 Patrick Rothfuss

I wander
from mind to mind.
     Avijeet Das

But dreams come
through stone walls,
light up dark rooms,
or darken light ones,
and their persons make their
exits and their entrances
as they please, and
laugh at locksmiths.
  Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

When it is in flower
it is like it is in flame.
Wangari Maathai

Like a yawn of fire
from the grass it came,
And the fanning wind puffed
it to flapping flame...
Francis Thompson

Joy comes in sips,
not gulps.
