    (for sistah Joyce & brotha J'hiah)



    Virtues and vices and such
    written as

    v
    e
    r
    t
    i
    c
    a
    l

    and

    diagonal stanzas of God's love

    Testing soft spiny steps
    of marital bliss
    weird midmorning interludes
    and post-scrotal scribes
    that
    regress and revert
    into an expansion
    of heart and soul's
    that have met
    for the very first time
    only to recall the
    vertebrae of desire

    Reading is like
    making love...
    a haiku in hand
    cupped like oils
    released as 'after marriage'
    marital vows
    dripping onto the page
    flowing eagerly
    into the minds
    of readers
    who recite these
    luscious
    love poems



    *ya'll keep the work flowin' forth
    Much :heart: for your creativity ...!!

    Thank You So Much Ms. N

    This is a beautiful tribute. I almost missed it. Such a beautiful reflection on the purpose and depth of the project we just finished. Your verses always call upon thoughts from the depths of the reader's mind.

    "Reading is like

    Sis, you are gifted with the ability for strong poetic expression. You captured the whole project with this verse...outstanding.

    Much respect,

    Your sista poet...Joyce

    Joyce & J'hiah

    Clearly this tribute speaks for itself, however I do want to insert the fact that I do believe that what you both are trying to achieve through your project is creative & wonderful...!! Please keep that spirit flowin' throughout... Again, I would add that you consider pushing the whole of this project out into the circuit well beyond the "interactive" pages of Destee... you've both got madd crazy talent!!
