POETRY - A Gift for a Beautiful Friend....







Soulflower


I am a Soulflower
Searching
Finding myself in the eyes
Of every woman

I am a Soulflower
Reaching
Higher than the ground
Were I was planted
A treasure for all to see
No longer
A hidden seed

I am a Soulflower
Teaching
Through beauty
And words…Spoken
Until the day
They’re all pulled
from my blossom
revealing my soul

POETRY - The Struggle

Dam!…that man - Part I

She was nearly done
She had primped and preened
for this very moment
Every feather finally in place
She was now ready to face the great unknown

Eyes to the heavens
She spread her wings
And took flight
Soaring higher
Wings outstretched as far as they could go
Her heart raced from excitement
As the anticipation of cool wind
Lifted her &
Filled her inner being


Higher and higher she went
Soaring

as the Fresh breeze of freedom surrounded her
as the scent of a new day and great adventures awaited her


Then….
BOOM!
suddenly … she stopped
As if a weight were quickly pulling her down
She struggled but to no avail…

Dam...that man!

POETRY - Dedicated to you....Wherever you are...

Friend

I was the one you would turn to
When your world was turned
upside-down
But now
You’re never around
And you leave me
On the outside
Waiting
Contemplating

I thought I was
Your best friend
The one on whom
You could depend
You said we’d fight this fight
Till the bitter end
So I can’t comprehend
Why when I extend myself
You don’t turn back
You say it’s cause you don’t know how to act
And you didn’t know how
I’d react
But it seems to me
You can’t face the fact
That I’m always your friend…

POETRY - Why I Don't Write

Sometimes We Need Silly to Lighten the Mood...

Why don’t I write


Laziness overtakes me
Time and time again
Or I lose my pen
Or I can’t find my book
(but then again
I didn’t really bother to look)
or I think
I’ll remember that
That rhyme is soo phat
But you can bet
That I’ll soon forget
To put that pen to paper
& those words
that were so fresh & new
become a part of an endless stew
of ideas
for my mind to once again sort through
& I get frustrated
because thoughts once easy
become more complicated
and they don’t seem to vibe as
when they were first stated
then I struggle
to recapture that flow
As I remember
To have to go
so...I put down my pen
To only lose it once again

POETRY - Dedicated to the Lost...

Water Rising

Water rises
As I reach my hand to the sun
Arms widely spread
Knowing my time may have come
But I’m not giving up
Not now
Not for anyone
I’ll keep fighting
Till this thing is done

Waters higher now
as I see flashes of light and fire now
And darkness hides the sun
My body’s tired
but I can see
As my spirit
Rises above the trees

All’s blackness
I will get past this
As my life flashes before me
Sounds of laughter
Either in this life
Or in the hereafter
But there is no natural disaster
that can master my spirit

caught in the currents
I remember I’ve ridden
Harder waves before
And I’ve been at death’s door
But no more
Today is my day for sure
And whether you hear my name
Whispered in your ear
Or shouted from a mountain top
Be sure that I never stopped striving
And I fought
Till the end

POETRY - "RUN!"

For the Commitment Shy...

Run!




So you're scared of me?
Well I'm scared, too
So I'll tell you what we're gonna do-

Run!

You run this way
and I'll run that…and don't look back

Just run!

And soon we we'll run so far from each other
we'll never know the bliss we could have shared
Had we not been so scared
we had to run

POETRY - Sweet Confessions

No more Cookies for Me

No more cookies for me
No thank you

No more delicious
Double dipped chocolate chip
golden brownie, chocolate chunky
with Crunch on the out side & creamy middles
You know the kind that make my toes curl?
Those get me in trouble every time

No more melt in your mouth
Rainbow, Peanut butter, Sweet as sugar,
Oatmeal raisin, or claiming to be good for you pecan sandies
Now you know that’s a lie…

And don’t you try to substitute them with no vanilla wafers, either
Cause those just won’t do

No more cookies for me
No thank you

Besides…Didn’t none of them do me any good anyway

POETRY - Eturnally

Eturnally

Please understand
you are still
My black knight
My moonlight
My guiding light
In the midst of midnight
You see me
You Guide me
You take me places
No one else dare
And you share
Every part of you
with me
Your Light shines through me
Revealing me
To myself
Thoughts I never knew I had
Good and Bad
You open me up
Filling my cup
Constantly
With your energy

Cant you see
You are still my midnight sun
The illuminated one
SAGE eternal
“Seeing Angels
Gaining enlightenment”
My spiritual nourishment
But I am still hungry
Greedy
Feed me
Eturnally
