No Empty Gestures

A L O H A From Honolulu!

Wearing her crown of royal night,
The city breathes in jeweled light.
Streets below, vibrant streams
Flash neon signs and active dreams.
But up above, the heavens hold
A deeper magic poured in black gold.
      Cloudia Charters

Animals praise a good day, a good hunt.
They praise rain if they're thirsty.
That's prayer. They don't live an
unconscious life, they simply have no
language to talk about these things.
But they are grateful for the
good things that come along.
            Mary Oliver


Adenium is a genus of flowering plants
in the family Apocynaceae first described in 1819.
It is native to Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
With the delicacy of a flower,
love tames the most aloof hearts.
     Augusto Branco

There are no empty gestures
made with a full heart.

Love You,
