Quiet Time

Watching you from 
across the room
Your emotions dance
constantly across
your face
 
Deeply engrossed in
your book
You don’t know
I am watching
 
Softly, I cross
the room
Take away your book
Remove your glasses
 
Time to curl up
in your lap
my head on your shoulder
And…
Cuddle

Forewarned

Your vanity…
Ego…
And 
Blindness…
 
Will never allow 
you to see the
Truth…
Even when it 
is right before you
 
That which you
place upon a 
Pedestal today
will surely 
crumbly and
fall tomorrow
Causing you
Excruciating Pain…

Redemption

Redemption…
Continuous
Always trying to
get back to the
Beginning…
 
Apologies…
please —
give me actions
Not words
 
Trust…
Lost —
difficult if not
impossible to 
Restore…
 
Loyalty…
a must or
nothing will ever
Last…
 
Love…
will it
Survive through
it all?
 
Redemption…

Red

My mother would be
so proud of me
 
I have finally
embraced my 
Red Side
 
She always wanted me
to wear Red saying
with my raven hair
dark brown eyes
And…
bronze skin 
Red was
              my
                   Color
 
But…
 
Even as a 10 year-old
all I wanted to wear
was black
Wednesday was my
role model back then…
Pre-teen angst!
 
Now…
 
Red is one of my
favorite colors
Exemplifying my
fiery side …
Deep…
Sensual…
Lips…
Clothes…
Shoes (flip-flops!)…
Even…
My car
 
I can just see her
smiling in heaven 
saying …
“Finally! She gets it!
 
RED…

Well Heeled…

Well Heeled…

It is so true 
that clothes make the man
or woman for that matter
 
But…
 
Shoes tell the true story
How they look tells
everything about the
person who wears them
 
They don’t have to be
designer or outrageously
expensive
 
However…
 
Shoes MUST be
well cared for…
Attention getting…
Statement making…
 
Being “well-heeled”
tells it all!

This poem was inspired by the reading of Langston Hughes’ short story Thank You, Ma’am and a young man’s quest for “blue suede shoes”!

Farm House Rules

Farm House Rules

My grandmother lived in an old
farm-house on a black dirt East
Texas farm when I was a
very young child
 
Just her with my two uncles
My grandfather long dead
before I was born
 
Spartan…
No paint…
Wide front porch
Bathroom with a 
claw foot tub and sink
But…
Other business took
place outside
 
A square refrigerator
wearing a coil bonnet
the kitchen lighted by
a single bulb hanging
in the middle of 
the room
 
Country living…
Daylight to dark
Farm House Rules
Sweet Childhood…

After the Storm

Clouds rushing
Wind blowing from all directions
Air freshened and cooled
 
Things unstable…
Unsure…
 
What will happen next?

Rain

And the rains came…
 
Unexpected
 
Yet…
 
Oh, so 
Welcomed…
 
Drought parched
Earth drinking deeply
Leaves turned skyward
in praise of the
precious drops
 
Everything
Renewed…

Questions…

Questions…

Why?
 
I Constantly
ask myself
 
Always
Wondering…
Watching…
Waiting…
 
Things change
which are
understood…
 
But…
 
Why?
 
No explanation…
Nothing…
 
Only…
      Questions…
                      Remain…
 
Unanswered…
