Benevolent Arrangement

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Thanks to a benevolent arrangement of things, the greater part of life is sunshine. Thomas Jefferson

Beneath the morning banyan
lilting laughter hanging
Young souls meet
light as a feather,
Weaving dreams
in verdant weather.

The wise heart
resembles a mirror, reflecting everything
without becoming sullied. Confucius

By the bowl, a feathered huddle,
Not the dog,
but ducks in the puddle!
Fido waits, tail hanging low,
As his water dish
becomes a show.

With a final quack,
the ducks take flight,
Leaving the dog
to claim his right.

Sun bled gold paints the sky,
Distant shores!
Our yearning cry.
Engines up and humming loud
Adventure waits
beneath burnt clouds.

Laughter is
poison to fear.
George RR Martin

Love You,
