Happy Monday

Some days (like many Mondays) come with a modicum of drama. I take it in stride, and do a little dual-expression. Care to join me?

Feeling the words of my soul
light in my throat,
expressed through my fine motor skills.
Pen to paper.
Heart to eyes.
Slowing me down
and yet quickening me.
Moving about the kingdom inside
where the words feel like floating filaments.
Nerve endings
responding and responsive.
It’s a curving road
with dust and breeze
and I want to share
this beautiful place with you,
even in the midst of your
moving,
jet-setting,
shopping,
working and
teaching.
Dance the curly tendrilled touch
of sacred relationship
within and without.
Present and be.
Be and be present.

I’ve missed writing to the nebulous. Feels like coming home, these words.

With words, songs, and prayer,

Black Poetry Day

On both my little bro’s birthday AND Black Poetry Day, here’s a Saturday Post!
 
From October-13
My family is an amazing maze of triumphs and failures
Heroic acts and artistic neuroses
I love them
More and more
The more I love
The bigger the family gets
There are some
Still lost
In the wilderness
I want them to know
There is a home hearth
Waiting
In my heart
In my house
No judgments
No past
Just now
Just a big hug
And a
Let’s move on
From here
To the legacy

For those of you I haven’t met yet, this image is my brother.
He will fly across the country to defend OR correct me,
and after the carnage, he will take me for coffee.
And be sure, he isn’t even my fiercest protector… You’ve been warned.


Criticism
can be
Constructive
Growth can
Often
does
hurt
Petty prides
Cut with malice
Seeking destructive details
Why?
Because
Hurt people hurt people
Proud people
Sad people
Lonely people
Controlling people
Confused people
Normal people
Human people
That’s why
Let’s go viral
Growing up
Getting up
Pulling up
Pushing up
Why?
Why not?
