The Royal Lily Pond

Today let me take you on a stroll through The Royal Hawaiian Hotel gardens.




Where there is the serenity of a lily pond.




As the island breeze softly whispers in your ear.




The sun is streaming through the trees above;




Making everything in the lily pond glisten and glow.




Once in a while you can see the koi,




Their bright colors catching your eye.




You watch the dragonfly softly glide on the air, as you get lost in the moment.




One of the koi swims over to where you are,





And welcomes you to " the royal lily pond ".






And you remind yourself,




To memorize this place and capture a piece of it to keep in your soul,

should you ever need a quiet place to  return to.

Good Morning Mo Sweetie...
Oh what a gorgeous share this morning. I loved strolling through these magical gardens. They are SO beautiful. Love the peaceful and serenity that you feel just looking. The stillness of the water, except for the movement of the fish beneath the surface and the light breeze movement of the lilies. So beautiful. I would imagine a lot of people go here just to find peace for the day. Absolutely exquisite. Thank you for allowing me to stroll along this morning.

It always amazes me the way lily pads grow and multiply in a garden or lake. Very nice walk though today.
