    the new i never knew...yet, some will never know...
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    every now and then
    i look back…
    not in desire to re-walk
    the path my feet have created…
    just for the sake of knowing
    the distance i have traveled
    …a destined journey…
    in…a few years…

    i have seen with my brown
    eyes…things that i’d never
    thought i’d see…not in my lifetime
    i have heard words that pierced
    not only my heart…but my soul
    yet, still…i survived….
    i have felt feelings my
    soul had locked away…
    and my heart denied my person
    from feeling…
    i have…lived a lifetime
    in a few years…

    every now and then…
    i see a woman, not
    like any other woman
    living a realization of
    love magnificent…
    giving from a gifted heart
    the hope of happiness…
    sharing dream time with
    the non-dreamer…
    every now and then…

    i see my SELF
    i see
    my SELF

    …and i write…
    poetry (i confess)…
    stories…essays…
    factual…
    fictional…
    all for you to have
    the chance to put on
    my eye-glasses…
    seeing…feeling…realizing

    so then…
    now…
    i am that woman
    walking
    living
    writing
    loving…

    love and prosperity in 2002 – poets!

    i see you
    in the quiet of the day
    resting in peace
    as serenity sings you
    as song of restoration

    i see you
    writinge life as love
    and hope as dreams
    awaitng the time
    for tomorrow to bring
    you today

    i see you
    leaning comfortably in
    the hands of blessed trust
    being cuddled by
    rains storm of HIS love
    being soaked by HIS
    anointed joy;

    yes i see you
    as the gift pours into you
    the words to pour out to others
    as we all walk together
    into this new year
    of completion...

    tight scribe poet and thanks for the chance to see...you
