  • Seeds were planted deep beneath the surface.
    Created to produce the bitter with sweet.
    Flourishing while nourishing our bodies from the heat.
    Sometimes its strange fruit was wonderful and unique.
    But the […]

    • I like the reoccurring line but how you change it up just slightly to fit the theme of each stanza. A treatise on our current malaise!

  • Holding space as women of color to share, love, and support one another.
    Watching our children laugh, create and play.
    What more can I say?
     
    It’s a vibe with colorful currents in our airway.
    A melody only my […]

  • In response to Langston Hughes “Harlem”
    Strange enough I find myself thinking of you.
    Sitting here reminiscing about our forgotten fruit.
    The hopes and dreams we had in hopes of a life together.
     
    Predicting […]

  • Response to earlier poem “Homecoming”

    The land you know, even when you are lost can return you to a final destination called home.
    The road searching for a hard and deep plot of land to lay your weary […]

  • Dear Fire Within,

    You only seem to activate when my buttons

    are pressed and a rage resurfaces from deep within.

    It is when you appear, I feel the people-pleasing subside.

    The need to run and […]

    As drops land on the windshield,

    Your words flood my mind with regret.

    I should have left.

    Instead, I replied, “let’s give this another try […]

  • Guided Path

    Along the path to enlightenment,
    we encounter life’s highs and lows.
    Mere survival and determination become a mantra.
    Acquiring the physical and mental strength
    to surpass primitive understanding.
    Guides tend to periodically download pieces

    Bound by songs of redemption,

  • Surrending to the chaos we wait for the call.

    The destination predicted to end us all.

    One by one we look up towards the sky, many still questioning why.

    There is no fire, nor storm, or rain just simply […]

  • Zero

    Gather around children let me tell you a story about Zero, the most powerful number in the universe.
    In the beginning, the quiet was interrupted by a stillness called Zero.
    Zero was born out of a life force like no other.
    So strong Zero didn’t have a mother or a father.

    Zero’s gender was nei…[Read more]

  • The land you know, even when you are lost can soothe a broken spirit with a familiar place to call home.

    The road no longer feels long, it becomes a guide without a map to follow the twists and turns around […]

  • Speculating the possibility of those things deemed unreal and far beyond the reach of reality.

    How can it be so simple?

    Contemplating the moment, I no longer fear death and reach into the realm of […]

  • Looking beyond the fields I see a woman who is unafraid and ignorant to her outer beauty.

    She runs toward the fire because life’s boundaries do not exist.

    There is an unseen power she holds close to her […]
