She Has Always Known

She reaches out

Pulls it near.

Hugging gratitude close to her heart.

She moves lightly and with joy,

Dancing with gratitude.

For gratitude is the best partner now.

Life being good for so many reasons.

There has been so much for which;

To dance for,

To hug closely for,

To be grateful for,

Everything in this life has had magnificence to offer.

Bringing her to this magical present.

This is the only way to get here.

For Terry

We see with our eyes

We see in our minds

What we envision

Arrives just in time

Pictures at the exhibition

Picture this

In your mind’s eye

You create bliss

You have vision seeing

What’s before you now

You have vision seeing

The future somehow

Seeing is believing

But believe what you see

We’re all of the same makeup

Eternally

Citizenry

To be me

To be free

To be part of this

Country

To see

Truly see

What we’re supposed to be

Not part of Illegitimacy

Renewal

The chief deranger

is a clear and present danger

and a big part

of why it gets stranger

everywhere, every day

in every way

Please, we must insist

on getting back

what we’ve missed

as the list

grows longer and longer

Missing leadership with grace,

where followers place

space in their hearts

and do their parts

helping others start

anew

Isn’t that what you

and I should do

Where we can work to renew

this nation, our citizenry

back into

a world’s who’s who

Decision

Division

indecision oblivion

Branch Dividian

all earth citizen.

It’s all a con.

Not just by

the Orange Don.

But his Trumps all.

This is not – a ball,

nor any fun at all,

this constant call

for vitriol.

Against us all

Muslims, blacks,

immigrants one and all.

Unless you’re white y’all

and maybe “Christian” if that’s what you call

all this ribald folderol

behind your wall.

Let’s change

the conversation

for creation

of dialogue,

a prologue

to minimizing this long,

slow slog

and end with an epilogue

of love.

A decision

ending derision.

Putting This Aside

All politics aside

How do we thrive

Stay alive inside

No hide

Or claim

I’m beside

Myself

Hiding on a shelf

Like the that little red elf

Moping

Hoping

It’ll all go away

We can stay out of the fray

Today

And everyday

Then we say

I’m better than them

I don’t hate Muslim

But that’s all you do

Then you say phew

That got me off the hook

I can turn away, not look

Must.

Do.

What.

I.

Can.

Fight through

Do what you can do

Resist

Persist

Help all humans

Exist

Thrive

Be alive

Live

Give
