    coming by way of Love
    a son of Light is born
    righteousness and kindness
    crooning a softer song
    as they guide his way into the world
    so bright the stars that shone
    on that day in October 1957
    the first evening you
    beautiful black man begun

    Happy Birthday, Poet.

    :heart:

    the things you miss during your absence. my apologies for my tardiness.

    THANK YOU, good friend TotalView. a wonderful day it was...which would have been made even better had i saw these special words on that day. THANK YOU.

    Destee...we have come a long way. and, yet, our journey has "...only just begun." THANK YOU.


    My Season Has Come
    I have grown…maturely
    I have matured…gracefully
    I have seen the lack of respect
    In how the young ones act
    And reacted…distastefully
    ~ My apology ~
    I have grown in my views
    Viewed many things…old and new
    I have given opinions where opinions weren’t wanted
    I have explored the soul of the blues
    ~ Give me Jazz everyday ~
    I have grown more patient
    Patiently, I have waited
    …For hopes and dreams
    To realize their plane of existence isn’t fated
    In a reality unlike mine
    So, I decline the offer
    To be demure in my proffer
    Of day-after-day
    When my rhyme-scheme says
    It’s time for the laughter…to start
    The seasons have blossomed
    My petal stands true…and tall
    No wilting wane, or waning limbs
    To stem the tide of my daily whims
    My season has come
    I am
    O
    N
    E
    With me

    talk about being late for your own party.:(

    but, as they say, memory is the first to go.:)

    thank you for remembering, my friend. October 13th went very well, indeed.

    i sit here, looking out onto a sea of whiteness, thinking, "the shovel is still waiting.":)

    Thank you, my sister of the word flow. i'm happy that the years keep on coming...and hope they never stop...at least, not 'til five score plus ten--i'm a sucker for torture, what can i say.
