Starting

I rub the sleep from my eyes

finding focus

I see now,

clearly,

what I’ve been looking for,

dreaming about,

It

is

you

I

am

better for you

Together

we make

a love,

a life,

a family

Two become

one,

who become

infinite possibilities

Here and now

Describes my

Actual

Yearning for her

‪POETwitteRY 386‬

Sitting early-

Christmas Morning

Still with joy and wonderment

Now, not with children’s

pending excitement

But instead with the knowledge

That the nest is briefly full

Occupied by joy

And wonderment

Still

And the love

Of knowing

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.

Who We Are

Racialized in our society

Or being socialized in sobriety,

Or drunken ugliness

That leads to this mess

I must confess

To help redress

My part in the

Lifetime of our nation

Conundrum

I wish we were all hypnotized

And it was all humdrum

To see that

It’s better we change racialized

In my, your, their eyes

That we instead become humanized

And come to realize

That we can apprise

All

That

There is but one race

The

Human

One

Lets slow down

Look around

See the

Beings that are

Humans making

Up

Humanity

House

A House divided cannot stand

My House is a rock, an honest man

This House is a home

Better than most any other

This House is one

Just like a brother

This House is strong

To stand the test of time

The relationship long

Foundational, never on the line

In this House I sometimes seek shelter

Emotions shared, never to swelter

In this House, not alone but together

The most egregious storm,

Easy to weather

Numinous

Those things,

They are numinous

They are myriad

And numerous

Surrounding me, my home, my loves

Those are things numinous

They come from above

Large trees are numinous

Radiant beauty appears luminous

Ancient architecture is certainly numinous

Those who project hate and fear

Are ruinous

Culture and nature

Man made and not

Are among the numinous

From which we’ve got

All the good that

Is our Lot
