another world


and the pure of heart said

let there be Love

then light

the world shimmered emerald

then sighed

the Sun embraced the auras of Souls

illuminating them one by one

then rainbows mated and created Love children

whose eyes were glowing with the fruit that satiates purpose like papaya on bottom lips

their tears of Joy manifested seas of serenity that surrounded secure continents

blueprints of dreams yet to be constructed were etched into the soil

the only toiling needed was a mind full of belief

many respites would flourish inland in four seasons

leaving many gleaming jewels on barren branches where our Souls exhale

rubies and ambers in Autumn

opals and diamonds in Winter

rose quartz in Spring

emeralds of Summer

leaves one to wonder if that is a sign

for us to inhale the color of Love

provided by the world where auras float

like hope.

precious granddaughters

precious granddaughters

Giggling bubbles of happinesS
Rays of sunshine which seem to shimmeR
And never lose their shinE
Now it’s a given they’re intelligenT
Designing their own triumpH
Destined for greatness from the beginninG
And perfectly designed like a haikU
United syllables within a stanzA
Gorgeous in the face and gifted in the minD
Honest, considerate and kinD
Three angels straight from heaveN
Each one has a brilliant aurA
Replicas of their beautiful motheR
Singing in harmony the most melodic sonG

always yielding

always yielding

even when others prove
consistently inconsistent.

nowhere in the Bible does it say
thou shall be a doormat
porch to place problems upon

now demanding a detour
here are the signs
wrong way
do not enter
stay in your lane
better yet
