AND SO IT BEGINS

And so it begins
The game of life
The dominos of love
Falling where they may
The timer activated
Fresh out of a box
Learning the rules 
As we go along
No plan or ruse
No rhyme or reason
Just out for some fun
Moving game pieces
Taking turns
At winning and losing
Rising and falling
In endless succession
An ebb and flow of emotions
The tears the laughter
Riding a roller coaster
Of highs and lows
A detonated cosmic launch
Mingling interstellar orbs
Crisscrossing arcs of destiny
In a waltz of muses
Or divine intervention

ADULT LULLABY



In my arms you can forget your troubles
Close your eyes and leave it all behind
I’ll sway you to rhythms of loving tenderness
I’ll comfort you to musical perfumes of sweetness
I’ll protect you with the serenity
Of a thousand starry midnights
Under feathery wispy lakeshore willows
Wavering in cool late summer breezes
Close your eyes and leave it all behind

All I Need Is You

Had a little too much to think
And no time to stop and drink
About troubles and toils
And unreachable spoils
And everything I ever wanted
But could never quite gain

So I should find something to hold
Before my hands get sold
Along with my dreams and intentions
And my honorable mentions
And all my stupid little rules
Against ever loving again

But if my hands can find nothing
 Will you be that something?
I’ll break my nature and rules
And turn these hands into tools
To build us everything we’d ever want
Though if I just had you I’d still be content

Amazing Grace

The soul whom the Son sets free
is free indeed,
Unlocking the rusting shackles
of oppression,
Allowing life’s amazing grace
to shine with His embrace,
Transformation of soul’s darkness
to light’s brightness,
The uplifting revelation of God’s
truth of freedom,
His extraordinary and infinite power
shining love every hour,
Preservation and hope for life
His love abound, no strife
How sweet the sound—
Wrapped in His embrace
Singing Amazing Grace!

Moon-----


Granny tells me you always watch over me 
     from the shimmering moon, ……….yet it seems so far!
But my dear Mama, I'm going to pull down 
     that bright sliver crescent moon and bring you back,
          just because I love you so much…oh so much.
Will we ever play together again, ma?
     I climb this ladder, so I'll reach out for you,
there on your yellow moon tip and find you there.

Gut Punch

Bearing the brunt of betrayal, 
his long-time lady lover leaves him 
for another flame. Surprisingly saying 
"I'm so sorry, Sam, we should start
seeing other people"

Broken by a brutal blindside 
out of nowhere. He couldn't comprehend 
the reason; the shock shook him 
like a loud trembling thunder
shakes someone out in the rain

Suddenly lovelorn, 
he's left wondering why. 
"What did I do to deserve this?"
To add insult to injury, he learns
she left him for his best friend, Bruce.

THE ROAD TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE



The road to my father’s house
Is paved with hills and valleys
Outstretched horizons
And sunfilled crystal skies
How he loved the land
Each slope each field
With a consuming veneration
Fueled with layers of history
And virtuous sweat of ancestors
There’s a serenity within me
Sublime that swells as I get closer
Except my eyes aim higher now
Slightly above the horizon
Somewhere behind the clouds
Above the hills and valleys

COSMIC WONDER



when I look up at the milky way
and the nebulousness beyond
my heart skips a beat in awe
i see the miracle of life
the timelessness of splendor
i see a grandiose enigma
the vastness of eternity
and mystery of infinity
i see the magic of creation
recognizing the authorship
of an omnipotent mastermind
in the most cosmic way
providential ubiquitous
i feel the mystique of his love

Life Not A Contest

Your contest I don't want to be in my friend
You want our lives to be a forever contest
Your best friend you always say that I am
Do you always need to be one up on me

I get something new and tomorrow you have it too
I get an illness and you have it or had it only worse
I say I love something and you always loved it first
I want to be me and you be you, as life isn't a contest 
to me.

A Tribute to Andrea Dietrich

she’s a faithful friend
a mentor, a confidant
a trusted teacher
of poetry forms
loyal, loving me for me
with no conditions...

on one occasion
she set aside precious time
to study ALL of my work
yes, from first to last
offering kind opinions
on what she thought were my best...

she loathes the lazy
practice of copy/pasting
bland, boring comments
or: ‘Nice work! Love it! Congrats!’
(short but not so very sweet)
enough already!

she’s funny and fun
honorable and honest
sometimes brutally...
(she knows I need it)
confidence sans cockiness
now THAT’S a lady...

The Sun Shines On The Righteous



     The morality of justice 
     is the light of righteousness.
     Its virtue rises not 
     from concern or faith alone
     but is driven by the needs 
     and love for others
     and to act with compelling deeds.
     It is a God given attribute.  
     To do right is to be righteous.
     On that imperative,
     the sun will always rise 
     on that which is honorable
     to the heart of God.
     The righteous are bathed 
     in the brightness of its dawn
     and reside in the sanctity
     of that divine peace...

MY FAVORITE HORSE



His mane is long and he is very proud
He neighs and roars and laughs so very loud
Always blissfully joyful as could be
Many funny stories he shares with me

My dearest horse loves day and night to prance
Forever asks me won’t you learn to dance
Whenever he decides to come to life
That’s when he asks me to become his wife

I stop I look I laugh and laugh some more
I know we would be happy to the core
Under the setting sun just him and me
But you should know that I am only three

Sailing for Love

My love can part the oceans, But it hasn’t reached your shores… Sailing in the breeze with emotions, As my heart rudders and explores. Within the mist of heartaches, The thunder passes through… Shattering sorrows of earthquakes, Exposing the love I have for you. The deep sea swallows my soul, I’m drowning in ambient aquatic… Resurfacing amidst the Devil's Hole, A delusional drift by evil’s erotic. Sails are down the anchor thrown, A lighthouse dims of love unknown.

I want to be free, I want to be me
I need to live and be loved

But if you need to clip my wings
I’ll fly away and never look back
Because I need to be me
I need to be free

Snowflakes 
playful
tumble fall
they glisten
as they dance
lightly fluffy
skittish yet carefree

to grasp
the complexity

deep within

you need to know
with all your heart
i’m right here
by your side
and my emotions
entwined with yours
one chaotic vortex
caught in that whirlwind

ILLUSIVE YOU



you fade into
the distance
out of reach
an illusion
dissipating
with the breeze
into the night
a specter
an hallucination
vanishing
leaving me forever

Woman -My loving Mother

I love my Mother.She is very gentle hearted.
She helps me learn fine manners.
She makes me active,encourages me;
She is there by my side always.
SHE IS "THE BEST"
Let me further describe a 'Woman'
It makes me wonder 
This is about the gender
Let the heavens thunder
May be it's not a blunder
Her smiles are warm
There is no harm
It's only her charm
She is a Woman !!
I pray for this precious soul that 
God has gifted us, and that's a 'WOMAN'
My sweet 'MOTHER'.

INTIMACY



Inner circle of total trust
No other dare try enter
Tactfully earned year after year
Intimately nurtured with tender love
Many obstacles were thrown our way
And it’s together that we faced them
Candidly united we stood as one
Youth like a mist disappearing till it was gone

My Diamond ( My Grandmother)

Woman of God, 
A Diamond is what you are,
Beautiful & special & sweet,
A diamond a person would strive for,
Built with the lord's armor,
A diamond is the hardest thing to break,
You are shielded and protected by God,
You are my diamond,
My diamond with much wisdom,
You may be a short statue,
But you are wealthy and rich,
In my heart and in the eyes of the lord,
This is simply your time,
Your time and honor,
You deserve.
You lived a wonderful life,
Guided us and teached us the right thing to do,
And I appreciate you,
My pastor, my beautiful grandmother,
And my honorable Diamond,
Prophetess E. J. Woodford!!

Pour Love

Pour love everywhere
Veer fairy lilies gently
Thrilling spring’s beauty

Plant white carnation
Daisies are chanting “Holy”
Freeing harmony

Pour love everywhere
Palm branches cuddle lily
Wine is spring’s honey 

Plant dwarf gladiolus
A rosy crown is homey
Fairy’s sketch pretty.

2009, then became the winner in January 2010.

TIME FOR ALL SEASONS

Time for all seasons is his plan,
roaming all of nature’s land.

Flowers bloom, their brightness fade,
Waters of life, we drink and wade.

Flowers spent, with grief we cry,
gazing upon the heavens high.

In seek of comfort, joy, and peace,
birds sing soothing, grief release.

Breath of breeze whispers love,
from the Holy one above.

Trees of shelter for mortal man,
until He holds us in his hand.

Love and peace for eternity!
