Gold Refined

Uneven ground
When you sit on a fault
For a heartbreak makes your faith

A broken trail
Requires sunshine and rain
Water cleansing the heart that needs
Warm rays.

From high above
Be the only recourse
To recover, the heavens charged
With force.

The Force
That never fails
May be at times at bay
By somber fearful clouds
A phase.

To build
Your inner strength
Which raises faith again
That the sunrise brings a new day
That grants.

New hope
Comes to restore
Your dream sleeping no more
The tarnished gold of your soul, refined
Bright ore.

Rivers Flow

                    Running water
           Gently washing each stone
         Flowing on down the river bed

      Not knowing when this river ends
         Whether it’s straight or bends
                    It will just flow
                        In peace

A Black Woman's Love

Hear the loud deafening cries of a black woman
A woman once silenced by pain unknown to every man
I was stuck in a human’s field yielding contaminated crop and weeds
Weeds from a seed fertile with deception and greed
Planted by his divided heart of more want than need
I loved him with every fibre, muscle and bone cartilage
But even that could not save me from this fatal carnage
I was caught in the eye of a storm of love
A love never meant to be yet fit so perfectly like a glove
My soul took it all in with no inhibitions or measures
The promises turned to lies of mere guilty pleasures
I experienced the agony of watching a lover love another
My voiceless heart shattered in agony like no other
But I stood still in the midst of rolling sea billows
Now I have become renewed like freshly growing willows
I’ve silenced my cry and my tears have run dry
Although my love for him may never die,
I can move on and still try
Knowing inside that a black woman’s love,
Though sometimes it may hurt and cry,
Like deep blue running waters, it will never run dry…

The Love Race

The Love Race

A place
Where all my cares
Seem to fly out the door  
Because I can raise my voice there
My grace.

In praise
Voices blend in
Like a choral dance
Upon keys and strings upholding 
God's grace.

Heart rate
Quickened by joy
Mirrored in percussion
Encircling all present as one
Love race.

To Love

One lets the heart
See what the mind cannot

From far
A voice surges
That speaks to the heart
It wants to reach and be heard

To keep away the noises
Confusion, the mercenary's

And come to know
The soul of each season
That wishes to speak to our soul
Their goal.

The ears to hear
The words that are spoken
Parents, Their love revealed in each

And see
Melt away night
Our fears, our tears and sneers
With the wine of Their love's pure light
God's might.

Another Miracle

Life surrounds us with miracles each and every day
Blinded are the people who don’t see the wonder display

A child who’s born with ten fingers and ten tiny perfect toes
A child who’s free from illness and healthy as he continually grows

A single mother struggling to ensure the ability to survive
Facing endless obstacles; her child’s health promotes her drive

A troubled lost soul in dire need, of a kind helping loving hand
His suicidal thoughts evaporate; a now vanished forever disband 

An atheist whose religion is filled with hatred and disbelief
As he takes his very last breath, the Lord’s love fills his voided grief

An elderly couple who’s family is misplaced and sadly out of touch
A homeless needy puppy who’s love has given them simply so much 

An abused neglected child dwelling inside a house of dead
Blessed is the hero who saves this child of dread

A once successful entrepreneur who’s lost everything he once had
Homeless in need of shelter, a “nobody” lends him a helping hand

Miracles are all around us, if we only take the time to truly see
That the next one in need of a miracle could surely be you or me

The New Spring Morning

Morning spring air
Blowing kisses, soft blush
Upon my cheeks, brings natural
Make up.

My frame to wake
My heart in the upbeat
With the prospect of a new day
To meet.

Senses to feel
The hopes of dreams, reborn
With the new morn, chasing spirits

The mind open
To new horizons
With the fragrance of the new spring

A gift
Like a sweet kiss
Laid at my feet, upbeat 
Of the heart, joined souls, sweetest bliss
Lives on.

A song
Like a river
Flowing between canyons
Grateful for its air of moisture

A dance 
In rapid steps 
Sometimes in slow motion
Of a spirit, receiving new precepts

A love
Rose like the dawn
In a warm orange glow
Filling my life with a new song
Awed soul.

Spirit Kyrielle

I walk my path from day to day
Though many trials stand in my way;
This path is often weary and long.
Great Spirit, make me strong.

I sometimes feel that I’m alone
Abandoned here, and never known,
Seeking the home where I belong.
Great Spirit, make me strong.

Away above stands Father Sky,
Expanse that makes my spirit fly
And carries me up on wind’s sweet song.
Great Spirit, make me strong.

Beneath my feet rests Mother Earth,
The warm life-pulse of season’s birth;
And makes my heart forever young.
Great Spirit, make me strong.

My Spirit Guide, the stalwart Bear,
Travels beside me, ever there;
My steps are sure, though path be long.
Great Spirit, I am strong.
