The Glow

A L O H A From Honolulu!

The glow of one warm thought
is to me worth more than money.
  Thomas Jefferson

I saw that my life was
a vast glowing empty page and
I could do anything I wanted.
Jack Kerouac

Every flower
blooms in its own time.
Ken Petti

Luminous orb celestial eye,
Attracts the Moon Witch
Seeking knowledge in the sky.

Most see her veil
As wisp of evening cloud,
But some can glimpse her truth:
An ancient wise and proud.

Painted in moonglow's
sacred sheen,
She gazes deep
where mysteries convene.

Spying upon secrets
in pearlescent depths
A hush around creation
The planets hold their breath.

We mortals how we slumber
blind to cosmic lore,
But she's sending gifts of insight
On to our dream time shore.
Cloudia Charters

Anyone can criticize.
It takes a true believer
to be compassionate.
Arthur H. Stainback 

Love You,
Pixie & Cloudia

I really liked your post, it gives me a positive vibe.
I also liked the quote that says anyone can criticize... indeed anyone can.
Have a beautiful day Claudia

I think I could eat the water with chopsticks more quickly than I could eat the cake.

Cloudia said...

That is a beautiful Asian building and a great Kerouac quote. Love that the water is Hawaiian, but not sure I could eat cake with chopsticks. Thanks for sharing your fabulous photos and quotes, as well as the water and cake for T this week, dear Cloudia.
