Envy

 

Flowers and Breezes

Why must people feel envious

Shouldn’t look at things with greed

They maybe blessed with many things

If only they took heed

Envy is a cursed thing

So purge it out your souls

And be happy with what you have

Cause envy we don’t need

(Sheen-March2016)

Decision Point

Food for thought.

thartiganblog

With our permission
We have a decision
What will we do for our future

Regarding our Earthly environment
Despoiling without real discernment
There’ll be nothing left for us to suture

Early Morning (Poem)

 

andifnotnowblog

Early morning, a liminal time,

When the tenebrific skies seem poised

On some obscure threshold.

The air is quiet;

No birds yet sing to herald the day;

No wind or rain disturbs the transitory stillness.

The moment awaits any assignation of meaning.

For a brief few breaths,

The world is simply as it is.

How To Count (Poem)

 

andifnotnowblog

How to delineate a life lived?

Let us use not temporal posts of days or years

But limn the finer measure

Of love given and received

Of kindness extended with a free hand

Of compassion shown in minute and larger ways

Of laughter shared with those around.

Choose to see joy

And continue to delight in our communal dance.

born to succeed — Annette Rochelle Aben

Be that whispering voice

Heard only in the heart

Of someone as they start

The new journey

Of being a parent

Something they’ve never done

Have a daughter or son

They may be scared

Remind them they have strength

To get through every day

For love will light the way

On this new road

A Notion of Belongingness

Belong anywhere or not,
at the moment what
remains is the company
encompassing who you are,
encapsulating what you become
near the stretches of aurora.

Depths in Conversation

 

Nabiha Fatima

Searching for depths in conversation,
amplifies the trenches of thinking.
None of the words is shallow
in the finely knitted phrases
according to the dried ink.

Show me

 

Feminist Confessional

I don’t really care if you like my poetry
I don’t really care if you like to watch me
I don’t really care if you think my voice is lovely
I’d rather that you hear me
I’d rather that you see me
I’d rather that you call me
Think of me
Show me
You love me

Wading

 

A Prophet Scorned

As I stand here among the towers
I look to the ground for the flowers
Pluck the ones that delight your eyes
An offering against all demise

Now my chance to love you is fading
In your ocean of tears I am wading
Feel like I am losing control
Taking it’s toll after toll

My choice of words my way
Make for a better day
Full of love from the beginning
And here I heard your heart ring

That joy that makes your heart leap
Should be held close to keep
That elated feeling of being loved
Not something that is shoved

Scattered

 

A Prophet Scorned

I once called upon a storm to cease
To demonstrate faith to believe
But their hearts were swayed
Never to enter the sanctuary
My example as of late
Tied to a certain fate
They scattered divided
Tore me apart
Oh what a start!

Unity, my people
Unite under one banner of Love
And I will send more Love in response
Despite to date none have ever reached out
