On my walk this morning around the block I saw these beautiful blossoms on Huamalani road. It’s Spring into Summertime!

Oops, this is Willy the peacock. He’s not a flower, but he thinks he is!





Today’s menagerie

These four creatures have names and depend on the people for food, so I guess they are ours: Massimo, JJ, The Fat Dove, and Willy the Peacock.





Welcome 2018

Welcome 2018, studio fans. Wishing you peace, a lot of hope, and more love this new year.

View from the studio near the end of 2017. The waterfall started from the mega rainfall we had on the island.

In midtown Manhattan, a couple takes a selfie. Remember to LOVE.





For the birds

7 12 2013

Two peacocks appeared
in my garden this morning
looking for salad
 
On the right and left
I missed their iridescence
not their loud love calls
 
Five six seven eight
chickens mingle, look for worms
don’t dare touch cat’s food
 
Fat dove out-raced them
for the tasty little bits
of breakfast. Oh, birds!

Last night

31 03 2013
 
Moonlight sonata
wakes me at three forty-five
streams in my window
 
Silence of peacocks
differs from the night before’s
loud cacophony
 
In the cool stillness
I fall back into dreamland
until rooster crows.

A peacock posed for me today

Although these unbelievably beautiful birds are a nuisance to us at the studio because they regard our herb and vegetable garden as their personal salad bar, they land on the roof like the weight of an airplane, they hold conventions on the front porch, and they make both dogs crazy, I have to admit they have a certain visual grace and fascination about them. Their iridescent plumage makes up for their loud honk of a voice.
