    this one's been brewing for a while, sis....


    i can see you across the
    mojave desert that
    separates us
    physically

    but I feel your spirit

    especially

    ...early every midnight
    when you burn your
    lamps...turn up the
    silence
    dip your pen into
    that deep well

    full of,

    filled with...

    saved up
    pent up
    lathered up
    heated up

    shook down

    soul drops

    joy/pain/tears
    dripping

    smelling of
    herbal essence
    like exotic heated
    oils

    like erotic beaded
    emollients
    from your
    pores, sistaaaa

    i've read you
    before on jasmine scented
    pages in other places
    and sis , can i say,
    you showing
    exactly what
    you knowing
    from the way
    you flowing ??

    and i been literally
    in this figurative
    house with you
    maybe been in the next
    room, too
    questioning my self
    when YOUR answers
    come through

    early every midnight

    sitting in your
    writingroom
    across the mojave
    desert

    you shake a sista's heart
    make a sista raise her hand

    in my midnight,
    all a sista can do

    is dim my lights
    bow my head
    and say

    "amen"

    let me be the first to say

    I thoroughly enjoyed the lines of this flow, Alyce. Painted so well by your creative brush, speaking so well of another of my absolute favorite sirens in the house.

    and, again your thoughtfulness is appreciated always...

    Alyce,

    Your words are so on point about this sister of yours. Much depth to her well from which her pen dips. Not suprised though...You both travel in the same awesome circle of womanly depth.

    Sista A~

    ...as the tears swell in my eyes
    my heart skips beats...
    and i am in awe of your words...
    my mentor...
    "trusted counselor" of poetic vernacular...

    my midnights
    born out reading
    your stirring words
    that touched my soul
    forcing me to explore
    my internal "well"
    filled with "joy/pain/tears"

    ...and the lamp burns...
    my fingers run
    erractically across
    the keys...
    and paint scenes
    of life...

    across the mojave...
    i am in the room...
    next to you...
    waiting for my next
    writing lesson
    to be slid under my door
    sign and approved
    by my teacher...poet laureate
    Alyce~The Great

    (bowing)

    humbly,

    Lisa
    aka MsD~
