    two blocks from darkness
    wrapped inside an angels wings
    now two steps from light


    sentimental breeze
    covered calm of quiet still
    September the 12th


    nervous shake of fear
    gentle hand touched her forehead
    quiet calm of peace

    You give me light bulb moments!

    The beauty of Destee you see, is in the flow!
    The poets feed off knowledge and then in
    turn feed others. You feed me much my brotha
    and I thank you for your kind and gentle spirit!
    And just when I think I will call it a night.
    I come right back and begin to write.
    You give me light bulb moments!!!!!!:smokin:

    i brought this to the top...
    it's from 2001...and nicely done so..

    neighborhood is calm
    across the river tension
    and the smoke rises

    siren sounds blasting
    congestion stalling movement
    and the smoke rises


    phones and tv's hum
    communication needed
    silence through the smoke

    The city that does
    not sleep, rudely awakened
    Spirits need their rest

    at the beginning
    smells of delicious grilling
    fire hotly dancing

    ceremonial
    entrances to heavens gate
    see the smoke rising
