Whatever You Do
Author Dana Redricks
August 21, 2019

Whatever you do
Do it because you love it
Don't seek other people's praise
Seek to inspire and lift others up
Live out your dreams and make 
them a reality
Don't let nothing hinder you or
stand in your way

Get It All Backwards, Part I
Maria wanted to no longer think,
and stared broodingly upon her mixed drink,
she’d already had one, still felt depressed,
hoped it would mellow once she drank the next.

But then a young man sat down by her side,
said,”Hey beautiful, what’s with the sad...Read More

Heart
Oh’ heart you are such a fragile thing, from you dancers dance and singers sing.
The painter paints their next masterpiece, with you in every stroke of the paintbrush or step, sudden movement in the dance routine.
You spark inspiration to pursue...Read More

Once upon a time I used to be your addiction 
Now you're living in a world where you can't tell the difference between fact and fiction 
Your habits are slowly killing you and they're killing all of us too

My Life's A Battlefield
Now our love is over life is a battlefield
Guns are blazing out a trail of obscenities
Right through my heart your bullets fly
You don't notice if I cry or tears in my eye
Life's a battlefield shouting and hurting but why

MAHOGANY LOVE
Come take a ride on my ebony thighs; 
Sink deep into my intoxicating velvet walls 
Envision black, brown, skin soaking up the moonlight 
Touch my lips, with kisses, hard and full of passion
Embrace the beauty, lust, love-taste the forbidden, this...Read More

None are Innocent
None are innocent
None seek Him
Blaze a trail 
Not getting in

My terms My ways
Seem better these days

Open mouth
Closed ears
Quick to Anger
Shedding tears

A path is narrow
A gate is small
A light is needed
A voice calls

Now Him I hear
Hide not in fear

Worry not
Come my...Read More

To go afar, to see and feel and breathe the places never seen by man
To adventure ones’ self, to test one’s skills, to do what one can
To blaze a trail, and make your personal mark, the axed tree oozing sap

Her First Verse
I like to dream, yes, that is me
of places new and fine to see.
To stream through night skies with a star,
or float on cotton clouds afar.
What new adventure could life hold
for someone creaking and so old?
I think I'll follow grandchild...Read More

Lady Familiar
Now...
Metaphors dance in my mind
and there's a word I'm hoping 
to find, a line familiar as
"I want you to be mine."
Relying on the fact that
poetry hasn't failed me yet
I hope you approve the way
God chose Moses's mouthpiece 
and includes all thou's, 
ye's, I's...Read More

Old friend you came where grass is dewed, 
Dear friend, you came to start anew
A rooster crows announcing you
I stretch and yawn, and wash my face
and shuffle down to start the race

Dear friend, beyond the window's view
the dark has left,...Read More

I saw the great lie of justice and equity for all

I saw a crisis that stopped the world
I saw a wall to keep out the cold

I saw a movie under the stars in...Read More

(Dedication: For Ann, the love of my life, who walks with me smiling. Thank you.)


Opt for a path that observes life's pulse and play,
Deeper and clearer as experience vivid,
Etch a present moment fragment in plain stay.


Sense oneness in all nature...Read More

I catch a glimpse of you in summer deep		
Your auburn tresses floating through the trees	
Where at the sight of you a willow weeps		
And throws her golden leaves upon the breeze	
As you almost bring me to my knees			
Your beauty filling me...Read More

Monsoon Mojo
Let's go out and frolic in the rain
Shove aside all cares and be vain,
In this stormy night from nothing refrain
Neither cry foul nor complain,
Drench to the core and raise cain,
Clap with the thunder once again
And blaze a trail in the...Read More

THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE

THE MAN WHO IGNORED HIS WIFE


How could you do it dear, she cried
You think you’ll keep me satisfied
How could you quit a Wall Street job
To muck about with every slob
A rising star---you blaze a trail
You’d shuck it all to run...Read More

Mother, I feel the weight the spinning world.
I feel each parental nudge, as a rock, in the cairn of my life,
the weight coats my fragile fleeing thoughts, dulling.
The spinning child teeters to adult whirlwind, still, sloughing stale nudges.
Worlds appear and...Read More

KNOW YOURSELF
Know Yourself, and discover what your strengths
Are, utalizing those strengths as a force.
Be a force for change, in your range and length.
Blaze a trail, and watch nature take that course.
Know Yourself! Discover where you are weak;
Weak in your mind, body,...Read More

These shifting poles, I sit and ponder.
As flocks of birds fall from the yonder.
But I have dirty clothes to launder.
I have no time for this.

Some Beetle's killing all the trees.
and something's swatting swaths of bees.
But I have to take care,...Read More
