AND ‘that voice writes a letter’ for
me in my dreams this morning..
and now i must
in ALL the DARK AND
LIGHT of life as IS for NOW
for ALL THAT IS ASeverNOW.
of the heart.. of the soul..
EXPRESSED AS spIRit..
of the flesh and blood as burned forest..
can never know the dreams of life in trees of leaves of grass set free..
And the Pyramids and stars will fall to dust too.. but for now is life and love..
with ashes and dust or not.. where paper cranes cannot lift the emotions of i..
And yes.. they can in feeling cranes..
Ah.. yes.. to hang with youth.. is to rise at least.. and most in spirit.. as young..
And sometimes December’s Spirit is the youngest of all.. even in crippled legs
and bent down head…
My Aunt teaches me that lesson of the ages at 94..
when her spirit is as young.. as
ever.. and mine is at least 104 at 47…
So.. now i return that favor to folks in life..
who are much younger than me.. in chronological
age.. of flesh.. but not me.. my Aunt now..
back to 16….in heart and spirit..
with soul.. older..
as ever….can be for me…
Perhaps I read too much into this..
but i see the strong black women
abandoned for a dream of
another ‘color’ of life that does not match
what one should be happy to be comfortable
in a culture that respects one’s brothers
AND SISTERS AS BEAUTIFUL AND
ALWAYS WORTHY OF LOVE…
The strong black matriarch of a black or white woman
will always be a Goddess to me.. with smiles too…
The rhythm is in the hips.. after all..
with all females i know… now…
One thing that always amazes me about the life in the ‘west’..
of country westerns is how agile the actors are in their bodies..
to meet the demands of a hand on life…
Truly missing from mine then.. as mostly a pen and pencil pusher..
with instructions on how to move..
To be wild and free and ride in tandem in taming the wild and free..
is the greatest life of all..
no doubt i know for now.. with just a taste of it..
in my life…
The storm of love precedes the spirit of the heart and soul
that continues to ride the oceans of love..
in calm and tremendous waves of the spirit of life..
