Reminding My Heart how To Sing

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Balloon Dog *

The World is Keeping a Secret.
What will Tomorrow Bring?
Will there be a sunrise
Reminding my heart how to sing?

- The world is a treasure of secrets
held close in the hush of leaves
Waiting for just the right moment
hidden where no one perceives.
Whispered in tides at the shore
while the ocean endlessly grieves.
Cloudia Charters

Boxy The Box Fish

Being fully human is not
about feeling happy, it's
about feeling everything. Glennon Doyle

My belly soft,
your smile so wide, Our secrets welling deep inside. Burst to share,
O joyous thing Our love like
morning birds
takes wing.
Love You,
Cloudia & PoetPuss

*American artist Jeff Koons created a series of giant dog sculptures called Balloon Dog between 1994 and 2000, made of mirror-polished stainless steel with a transparent color coating in five different colors: blue, magenta, yellow, orange, and red.

It's a good thing that Pixie isn't afraid of sky dogs, despite living in the penthouse... Thanks for all your words of encouragement and wisdom.

Cloudia said...

Thank you dear

I suspect your heart always knows how to sing. And does so, loud and clear...
Pixie's pose is a bit Russian Roulette here. Will the cat enjoy the tummy rub or will it latch on with tooth and claw. Purring.

Cloudia said...

You are wise in the ways of cats! Though pixie is a sweet sweet outlier in this regard. She only scratches inadvertently, or rarely nips gently with love. Thanks honey! Aloha

...Jeff Koons is amazing.

Martha Jane Orlando said...

Those clouds are amazing, and certainly the formation looks like a dog. Blessings, Cloudia!

Cloudia said...

Thanks Dears!

RedPat said...

You find the best clouds, Cloudia. That really looks like a dog! ;-)

Beautiful sky! The Geckos are pretty lizards, I like their color.

Jeff Koons has made lots and lots of balloon dogs.

Never heard of a Box Fish, until now, so thanks for the lesson. Be well, Cloudia!

Jeff Coons is a lot of fun. I googled to find out if he is still alive — he is! I was interested in the artists that influenced him: Influenced by: Marcel Duchamp, Salvador DalĂ­, Claes Oldenburg — also some of my faves. Though Dali eventually sold out.

best, mae at

Hi Cloudia.... funny how your post connected with me. I just rehomed a lizard thing that looked like that and a client had a balloon version of the Jeff Koon balloon dog. I'm pretty sure thats cheating!
