"Through Her"

a mother’s love

is beyond card

and letter definition

flowers may accent

the table

but cannot light

the space

like the one

who makes subtle

life adjustments

ensuring that children

will smile more often

than cry

provide that blanket

when the world

seems cold

she carries burdens

without bitterness

or complaint

fragile, yet resilient

her goal lies

in the eyes and dreams

of the little bursts

of energy

given names

and guidance

all beginnings come

through her

"The Energy"

First it chooses us

then sits bedside

and conjures up how

we shall be used

as we sleep

It does not rest 

yet we give it storage units

like heaven, universe, abyss

and because we run towards

the silence at times

it is our assumption 

that it to desires such

reprieve 

it does not but we hear not

and thus continue 

trying to 

name

channel

and sort it

We find it in

our music

our dance

our passions

our lovemaking

our prayers

our poetry

our courage

our sadness

our laughter

our smiles

our tears

in every act that

accompanies giving

It is seamless

unbroken

carried aloft by every voice

seeking a closer walk with

thee

in every tear 

falling from eyes

witness to too much

It plays in the womb

massages the heart

courses through veins

pushes magnificent plants

upwards

whistles just beneath the

wings of the falcon

knows evry ripple of the sea

pushe and pulls just enough

to maintain orbits

but,

first it chooses us

then sits bedside

and conjures up how

we shall be used

as we sleep

"(Just) Another Name"

As it relates to relevant

realities on our planet

we wait for permission

not to participate in holidays

or traditions that are associated

with lies and death 

with greed as a springboard

as the young philosopher mentioned

“Truth introduces clarity”

but do we want truth bad

enough

to speak, live and abide in

it is Bland just another name

hiding behind proclamations

unsure of their role

once the trumpet has 

sounded

paling in the radioactive

glare

of imbalanced wealth

and sidewalks replacing beds

we have different interpretations

of the same dance

we abhor the human sacrifice

of our history books

but hundreds of african women

can disappear 

and their brown relatives

in mexico do the same

with daunting silence

our water is poison

as is our air

we fight over resources

which turn brothers

into enemies

and make a few men rich

we are faced with

bullying

political corruption

intolerance

and food engineered

instead of grown 

and yet

we find comfortable

definitions

lying to ourselves

behind the guise

of patriotism

religion

and first generation

stipulations

turning our words

into noisy

nothings

the realm of high standards
