Premium Member You and I
Through trials; you and I.
Even though I have never known you;
I know your fret; same as mind.
Your hurt is my compassion; my soul aches.
Yet, I never knew your name, your smile or laugh.
Your presence is with me day and night;

God Always Makes Time
Today, forced to detour
Last week missed my plane
Blamed it on the heavens
No, not me. I am not one to be late
Gnashed my teeth
Gnarled in these jams
Do these passers-by know who I am?
No, they don't and why should they care
After all,...Read More

Time and Miles
Living for decades, I've felt my fair share of heartache.
Some scenes in my mind I yearn to relive, while others I wish I could erase - never to live again.
There's a saga that time has given me the gift to...Read More

Head of two person patriarchy 1st guess

Nature's Green Dress
Nature's green dress sprawls lofty upon the earth,
bursting forth with life abiding foliage,
photosynthesizing perpetual birth
that carries a carpet of created knowledge.

Ivy hems climb to the collar of fir trees,
with moss detail, but not to upstage
frisky ferns fringes, flower buttons with...Read More

Morning Dew
Sun rays fills me with warmth
Reflections of the sun reflects my thoughts..
Life twisted with turns..
Curves and winding roads..
Avenues of fear..
Lost in a stream of confusion..

Reaching for the stop sign..
Dived into a dead end..

Early morning dew appears..
A soft wind blows as...Read More

Ask in Faith, never wavering.
No distrust, never stumbling; standing tall.
Be not bewildered, no worries, no fears.

Many longs years has he; this man.
He doesn't speak often.
Some listen, some turn away.
Walk away, you will be back.
His words are ageless;
children smile; knowing what he is saying.
Listen to this old gentleman;
he knows what he speaks;
past, present and future lives.
Knowing...Read More

Waves of sorrow, bring me to my knees.
Get up! Your battle is won.
No more crying, wipe those eyes;

The victory is yours, but why do you doubt;
did HE say so?
Wipe those eyes, so you can see;

We ate, we laughed, we played a game
before they went on their way.

I Rise
Author Dana Redricks
December 2, 2019

I rise although I may fail
I learn from my mistakes
Some lessons are learned
quickly and others come
over a period of time
but rather I rise or fall
there's a lesson in all
Never be afraid of failure
because it is in...Read More

Father at a loss to express care and concern for Punim
Helplessness immobilizes yours truly,
I genuinely agitate
permanently lasting indelible impact deux
biological offspring unfairly bore brunt,
compliantly, complicity, and complimentary
I avidly, doggedly, instinctively helped create

subsequently, unintentionally, or willingly
unpleasantly affected as adults facilitate
learned behaviors to navigate
their respective independent lives
both managed to coordinate

Leaves let go gracefully 
When the season comes to an end 
Papering the ground, a carpet of colours
crisp at first and then subdued and soggy 
Squished to the ground by clumsy feet 
Stomping, squelching, trying to stop slipping. 

Such is...Read More
