Kindness Confetti

 A L O H A From Honolulu!

From daily grind
to a joyful lift.
No passport needed,
just a mindful shift.

Toss kindness confetti
let random smile's spark,
Small acts ripple,
leaving their mark.

Gratitude echoes
in the heart's gentle hum,
Singing the truth,
then happiness comes.

So pack your spirit
and get away
On inner Vacation's
Take several a day.

Make an honest assessment
of the choices you've made
before you look askance
at somebody else's.
Kathleen Rooney

Even the severed branch
grows again, and the
sunken moon returns:
wise ones who ponder this
are not troubled in adversity.

Being listened to and heard
is one of the greatest desires
of the human heart.
  Richard Carlson

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Lunch in a Sack

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Sun in my face
Trees got my back
The song of birds
lunch in a sack.

In sunlit sheen, a grackle gleams,
No longer black, a rainbow seems.
Emerald shimmers dance and play,
On wings that catch the light of day.

On iridescent wings he flies,
A splash of blues and purple dyes.
In sunlit air, a grackle gleams,
Coat of black with iridescent seams.

Vinca is a genus of flowering plants that includes about 12 species, and is also known as periwinkle or myrtle. Vinca plants are native to Europe and Asia, but have naturalized in many other parts of the world. 

Every time you do wrong you
bend your soul the wrong way,
and when you act rightly you give
your soul a brighter shine,
a little beauty.
Paul Woodruff

When angels visit us, 
we do not hear
the rustle of wings, 
nor feel the feathery touch...
...but we know their presence 
by the love they create 
in our hearts.     
   Mary Baker Eddy

Love You,
 Cloudia & Pixie

A L O H A From Honolulu!
A molten ember bleeding
into amethyst.
Wispy multi-hues
in twilight's dance exist.

So breathe, and smile,
and know your worth,
A symphony sung
from your birth.

For in you
wonder's boundless claim,
Whispering: "forever
is your name"

This fire that we call Loving
is too strong for human minds.
But just right for human souls.

Guzmania lingulata, also known as the scarlet star, droophead tufted airplant, or orange star, is a flowering plant native to the rainforests of Central and South America, southern Mexico, and the West Indies. It is a member of the Bromeliaceae family


What really matters is
helping others win, too,
even if it means slowing down
and changing our course
now and then.

Waits For You

A L O H A From Honolulu!


Luck is believing

you're lucky.
Tennessee Williams 

Heed a whisper
soft and true,
Invest in your joy
it waits for you.

 "Street Face"
You can glean a great deal about a person from the constellation of friends around the gravitational pull of their personhood. Maria Popova

To fuel your purpose
fan your spark,
A flickering flame
that lights the dark.

Find meaning there:
dusky depths unknown,
Where hidden healing
knows its own.

Those who bring sunshine
to the lives of others

cannot keep it

from themselves. James Matthew Barrie


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

Open Way Beacon

A L O H A From Honolulu!

As we get older we either
become our worst selves
or our best selves.
Steve Martin

Shield the joyful
with whispers of grace,
seeds softly sown
Flowers filling the space.

Art made by a living soul
will continue to be a mystery
as long as human consciousness
is a mystery.
Solomon Enos,

Let kindness bloom,
With gentle hand,
In every soul,
A promised land.


Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia


When hearts are open,
light finds a way,
Joy is a beacon
Of fresh coming day.

Who Me?

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Learn that living in the present moment will always heal you. Living in the past forces you to align with it, especially if there is pain. Living in the future forces you to be anxious—live here.
Sylvester McNutt III

The way people treat you is a
statement about who they are
as a human being. It is not
a statement about you
Anirudha Bhattacharjee

Tiny flower
every moment with you
is a happy hour.

There is a name for my daily vice!
 Contrafactum is when you make up your own lyrics to a familiar song. Pixie is the subject of may songs I sing during my daily activities.
Weird Al Yankovic*
made a career of it!

Who, Me?

Missing sock?
A playful chase?
But who could resist
that fluffy sweet face!?

Queen of my bed,
a purring embrace, Tiny paw prints
on my sleeping face.
Wasn't me!

Kindly and Big

A L O H A From Honolulu!
Carry so much love
in your heart
that there's no room
left for hatred.
  Rithvik Singh

Speak kindly and
carry a big heart.

Two duties belong to our souls.
One is to reverently marvel.
The other is humbly to endure...
Julian of Norwich

An angel comes
to me at night
Filling me with
heavenly delight.
Whatever kind
of day I've had,
invites me
gratefully to bed.
Cloudia Charters 

I have spent my life
laboriously doing nothing. Grotius Hugo

Love You,
Cloudia & Pixie
