THE BEST

 10-23-2013

 Seedz of joy grow magnolia flowers yall mistake as my teeth.

Smile centered,

Anatomy diagonal to the dirt.

Sun spits rays,

Faster goes the merry-go-round.

Weird and strange.

My eyes wrinkle,

Cheeks become parentheses

With as much royalty as Rameses.

LAUREN OPINIONS

 

Something special in writing a book,

story or song,

to sustain the thought long enough

to feel and to meddle

with the possibility

soaking in the emotion

b/c mine are so passing, ephermal, and forgettable.

Getting my mind to stay in gear:

a great feat

-seeing as how I desire to be

planning out my career

Right Now.

Need to let myself stop feeling the need

to (get)

caught up.

And let old promise,

commitments, whatever

fly off with new wings

to see new life

as from this day forward.

The need to share ideas like water

in streams flows free.

Sleep is slipping her hands

around my waist and pulling me close to her.

I done spent the better part of the day

on a Scandal marathon with good food and catnaps:

unhaunted by tasks or to-do-lists,

a Saturday to just be.

Be flooded with a differing life pace and be sucked into a visual storybook.

When in his company 3-D is a place that’s calling my name over miles. I

love you.

I want the world so bad, friction is sandpaper on silk.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Direction: Butterflies in My Stomach

poetry.

black-and-yellow-butterfly-on-yellow-flower

I promise I try. I promise I give, and naively use magnifying glasses to look for the good, like Battleship game map searches. I  X  out general flaws because I want to be right.

Pure in spirit, a heart pinker than flamingo feathers—a cotton candy melted by pleasant tones and gestures. Moments that remind

That eyes bear: pregnant with tears.

Caterpillars have camped out a month of Sundays in my stomach as I know my potential,

but i get nervous.

Six-prong fork with me at the center

left,

northwest,

diagonal left,

south, diagonal right, and south east.

But you know, with certainty, I attest the Butterflies will at best carry me towards… where I will be Blessed. 

 

 

Winter Blues ‘n Trickery

Healing + Body

love life

Winter Blues ‘n Trickery
How many of us have friends, family members, and folks we just happen to know that are presently under the weather? *please raise your hand* Now, I just hate this! A number of them cart themselves and their children to the doctor, straight off. I have friends who think pills, shots, and medication are a magic wand and will take beaucoup amounts of whatever they’ve been prescribed. Ain’t researched the medicine, tried to find a natural cure or answer, changed the diet, lifestyle, or habits, drank more water, or nothing, but you just expecting magic and miracles from these doctors. Honey, please come back to Earth! Are we so far removed from our nature that our bodies’ heeding for us to stop/change/listen goes unnoticed? To summarize K. Kia Bunseki Fu-Kiau’s Self Healing Power and Therapy: Old Teachings from Africa, any bump, scratch, sore, drip, and I don’t know what else that you experience is your body’s warning signal, a yellow light, that seems to say HEEYYY something is wrong. Moving right along to the title, “Winter Blues ‘N Trickery”, I know how easy it is to get into bluesing with the weather being brick (cold), but instead use them hours that you’ve been forced to stay in the crib to reflect, plan, motivate, and enjoy yourself and your own company. Cuz one can be easily “tricked” into fear of this contrived flu epidemic.

On my very first post, I encourage you to drink more water, eat more fruit, more vegetables, dance, laugh, run, and pay attention.

xoxo
