    I be trippin...



    when I see the sunrise
    against the horizon
    of mountaintops painted on orange canvas
    when the morning fog
    reveal my name
    in cursive script across the sky
    musing surrealistic epiphanies
    of God's magnificence
    as I walk along the seashore


    I be trippin...


    when snowflakes fall
    into countless millions
    blanketing screaming trees
    that shiver in the cold
    a beautiful experience to behold
    of wintry scenes
    December
    brings


    I be trippin...


    when I hear the birds
    sing musical notes
    escalating into melodies
    while I whistle in acoustic tone;

    "I can see clearly now
    the rain is gone"


    I be trippin...


    on serene nights
    I dream of lyrical formulations
    of mental stimulation
    scribing words into visual wizardry

    I

    want

    the

    world

    to

    feel

    thru
    me

    then........I
    click my pristine heels
    whispering...


    "There is a place I call home"


    it takes me away to
    cerebral regions
    bewitching my reasoning
    beyond
    earthly confines
    &
    superficial
    sensory perception


    I be trippin


    when I
    stargaze to distant planets
    lasso Hailey's Comet by
    the tail
    skip de- do on zodiac
    constellations in the macrocosm
    of my imagination


    I be trippin.....when I create poetry in my mind!



    *Dedicated to my extreme love of poetry*:hearts1:

    while you were trippin'

    While you were trippin’

    I sat atop that mountain of fire
    Above that sandy, seashore
    Watching the sun set
    As I imagined being with you

    I watched that sun set
    With you
    Saw mother nature signal
    The beginning of forever
    And never
    Did I sing the blues

    While you were trippin’

    I ordered up some singing birds
    To wake you
    …A white-hot sunrise
    To warm you
    And a river of melodies
    To soothe you

    That’s what I would do

    Cause everything you dreamt of
    I want to give…to you

    Coz I love the way you be trippin’
