As The Wind Blows - Chan's Memory

As  the Wind Blows

 
When you feel a warm wind caress your face, do you think of me
Do you hear a soft voice whispering as it rustles the leaves

Sit, close your eyes; do you smell the soft scent carried on the wind
Listen to the trees, they sing a song that was meant to never end

So is the strength of my love, able to be with you though I am not there
Caressing your face through the breeze, its essence carried on the air

The song of the trees, the whisper in the wind, listen with your heart
I am calling to you love, our bodies separated for a time, but our spirits never apart

 
F. J. Thomas

Though I do not personally believe in heaven and hell 
the same way many do I would hope that, whatever your belief,  
you do believe that he no longer suffers as he was.

The Kingdom of Ghali

The Kingdom of Ghali

Welcome to our peaceful home
Where cotton candy clouds and free thinkers roam
Meet jester Jack who keeps a smile on all
Reinforced by Sir Drake with his radio wherewithal
And don’t miss maidens Becca and Charma
Who keep the Queen’s peace with their shining aura

Oh the Queen? Who is she? you ask

She will warm your heart but do not cross her
For I hear to one she decreed “I Hope You Suffer”
But here she rules fair over the azure seas
No, there is no other like Queen Eileen of Ghali  

Her admiring scribe,
FJ Thomas

My apologies Highness; this should have never been removed when I left.
It is, after all, for you ;)

I Stand - Spoken Word

I was not given aspirations as a child; only told I'd be a mother and wife
....yet here I stand

I was never told growing up that boys would be cruel and girls would be fake 
....but here I stand

No one ever told me that when I embraced my heritage the people that would hate me most would be my own
....yet still I stand

I did not know that when I became a woman I would see just how many men hit their wives
....but here I stand

And I was NEVER told that I could end up on my knees in tears or have knives stabbed through my heart but THIS woman! ...this woman that I am!
I will always stand!

Awakening - An Adult Dream

Breathing strained, body jumping, waking deep in thought Overwhelming intoxication, searching to find my bearing His caress I still feel, his scent in the darkness sought Grasping the sheet for some control, listening for his voice so caring His hold on me so strong it transcends every reality Surrounding me, reaching through the very essence of my being Holding me, stroking me; leaving me blind to reason, led by need I feel his breath on my neck his fingers down my back; all restraints he’s freeing Awake now, aware he’s not beside me, but wanting him still A desire only he controls as it is of only his creation The jumping stronger, I feel him inside me; I have no will My temperature rising, my grip tightening, breathing harder…elation

Climax

Climax Embrace me with your words Reach inside me with your mind Make my spirit soar with the songbird Unlock my soul that remains confined Unbind my heart with syllables that caress Remove each tear with tender strokes of your tongue Each shattered piece seal as your love you express Whisper for me with your soul that I may come

Lost Treasure-A Family's Story

Among scattered stones the sisters liked to play
Mommy finding rocks in pockets day after day

But beneath a leaf a treasure one little girl found
A rock like she’d never seen, beautiful and round

So off to her sister she ran to show her prize
They danced in circles letting out delighted cries

No matter how they looked they only found that one
So they decided to share; showing it to everyone

Each day they played with that stone and had fun
Loving its beautiful green and how it shine in the sun

After time the sisters came to adore this pebble
Taking it everywhere; never letting it get dull

Then one day the neighbor down the street was passing by
Daddy always said stay away from him; he’s not a nice guy

The girls were so happy in the yard they hadn’t noticed him
Wondering why they were laughing so, he had seen them

You see, old Mr. D was a very slick and greedy man
Wanting what wasn’t his; stealing from every hand

So Mr. D snuck closer to see what made them glow
His eyes got big when he saw them dance to and fro

Taking turns with their friend; their own little rock
Never setting it down; so he continued to gawk

Now Mr. D knew something precious when he got a look
This was no regular stone, but rare Jade just like in books

A lovely rare stone the sisters shared between them
Never knowing its worth, but still loving this gem

Mr. D stood up straight and put on his nicest smile
Then asked “dear girls, may I sit here a while?”

The girls always listened to daddy; so in reply they said
You have to ask dad before you open that gate ahead

Mr. D was no longer smiling, as they had foiled his first trick
But he wanted that Jade, so another time he would pick

It was late now and mommy was going through pockets
Soon she found their pretty stone nestled in some blankets

She thought “I’ll set it on the sill while the blanket dries”
Not knowing Mr. D had seen her with his greedy eyes 

As soon as she went inside he tip toed beneath the sill
Knowing he’d make the girls cry he laughed a loud shrill

Mom ran outside and could not believe what she saw
The precious stone was gone; it had to be that outlaw

Momma cried all night because of her carelessness
Wanting to fix it; hoping her girls loved her no less

Some time had passed and Mr. D did not care for the stone
It was now always by garbage, in the dirt, or just left alone

So one day having used it enough, he left it on the side of the road
It was dirty and scratched not being given the love the girls showed

People passed by and never noticed the gem on the roadside
Thinking it was like every other rock they continued their ride

The girls were a little older now; but had never forgotten about their friend
The pebble brought them so much joy their hearts would never quite mend

The family decided to take a walk and look at pretty flowers growing
To take in some of the fresh air, warm sun, and feel the wind blowing

But as they were walking a small flash of light caught the girls eyes
And they froze as they could not believe what just under the dirt lie

It was their treasure, their prize, the friend they always kept close
A beautiful green rock that shone bright and kept them on their toes

They run to their parents and say “she looks different, but can we keep her please”
Daddy looked and momma and smiled; she looks at the girls but does not tease

“It’s only the outside” she said; “the inside will still be as pretty as ever”
“Just need to wash the dirt and rub the scratches and she’ll be even better”

So home she went, that precious stone, right where she belong
The three back together, they danced in the yard all day singing songs

All cleaned up and shining bright, the neighbors now admire that Jade
Never realizing all its hidden qualities; happy that too far it hadn’t strayed

Mr. D sees all the commotion and wants to know what is going on
Then he saw all admiring the stone he wanted to be forever gone

If he couldn’t have it he didn’t want anyone else to enjoy its beauty
But Mr. D lost this one; that little Jade was home, loved and happy
