The Stare

Today, as I started my day, my mind went astray, neither here nor there, but everywhere.

You may wonder why people stare (afar off) and wonder if they even care.

But I want to believe that in those times their mind is somewhere, everywhere.

We are people prone to think, but within that hour only can we meet.

Truthfully and honestly

Everywhere becomes an anomalous word when you integrated with all that you heard.

Everywhere can be somewhere if you really give thought.

in this hour you bring the power to cast the shower






As I care pictures, a find very rare, to the stares that bear the hearts within.

Let us start to look at every day presenting opportunities in everything.

So that we can unravel the mystery of everywhere being everything even as you stare.

Self Reinvented – an anthem for mid-life sisters

If you’re a woman,

You’ll have to be the Mother of invention, the Sultana of Self-Worth.

And I’ll tell you why:

Nobody can validate you better than YOU.

I just turned fifty-two years old, and GOD I love it.

I glory in this mid-life thing (most days, anyway) and here’s why:

Because every outside force you can imagine

Is going to keep changing.

The “new normal” is a revolving thing.

Having the “look” is nothing compared to owning your self-worth.

And the ways you are changing?


Be lady-like, we were always told.

At half a century and some change,

I feel emboldened, empowered, and not at all “small.”

You see, in our youths, we were told

To make ourselves small, so as not to be a bother.

To be selfless and only consider

Your feelings as afterthought.

We did…

Strut Your Stuff

I wonder how many times you woke up and started your day.

Feeling if you were at bay.

I wonder if your spirit, at this minute, has a limit?

Or if you could not see the source enforced?

Are you reading these words?

Can you hear them, feel them?

Reveal, that which is concealed.

You are still here, embrace the day.

There is so much more to say,

So much more to do.

It is within you.

You need to know what you seek.

Understand that it won’t happen in a week.

It will take time to align and refine those things on your mind.

You can do these things with faith, not haste.

Do not clutch

Do not fuss.

Get on up

Do not rush

To your destination

Take the combination of your creation so that you can create your foundation.

Build it up.

Build it up.

It is your time to erupt and strut your stuff!!

The Well of Well

I have a well from within that spews out the words.

That I do intend to make on print

As not to miss my hint.

I think it’s important that I

Keep it coming because the momentum transcends and makes me want to do it again.

Is revealing even unto me where I am meant to be.

Do I want to have likes and followers for sure, but it does not stop my resilience of wanting to make and create the value of what I procreate (in words) as I share what I care?


If you are reading this yes, I am so elated I am overjoyed and I’m even more impressed when you leave a comment but if you don’t it’s OK, I still have something to say.

My writing is not so much about you.

Because I never know who

Will show up to read, review or even see this through.

So, as I make my imprint it has to be about my desire.

Those things that set me afire.

Appreciate you Oh yes, I do.

It is better said when it’s coming off the top of my head.

Not so much as given a thought to what may come and what may not.

I want this blog to be routed because it is with purpose that I come to you.

Take the time to see me through

Every line

Paragraph and phrase

Believe in your heart that it is what you do with each word that comes to you.

And I pray that it blesses you

In the well of Well.

Think on That

Stepping forward does not mean that you advance, it simply indicates that you took a step in the direction you were aiming. Think on that.

When we move it should not be presumed that we’ve advanced. How does one gain the advantage of movement? What determines if life giving motion gives momentum?

How many times have you moved only to be in the same place. The same state of mind. The same precarious position? Life.

I imagine that you have wonder in the advancement of development how fast and unassuming life has become. Not that you have not valued the encounters or even being on the Journey, but subtlely have questioned the obvious, Why?

The Power of Want to

It is something so powerful about the power of want to

You know that’s something that you make up your mind that you’re going to


That’s something that no one’s going to stop you.

From doing.

That’s something that makes you want more.

It comes from the core.

Of who you are

Don’t negate the power of this very hour!

Make the decision, you are on a mission.

Find it deep within, require it to come again.

It will change you!

Take the time to make a choice to understand the power of your voice.

Then rejoice.

You don’t have to take a hoist.

To someone else’s choice

Make up your mind every day.

Be determined to find a way.

To change what didn’t work out well yesterday.

The power of you will come alive.

Once you awaken the inside

Now is the time to set a fire

To what you desire

That will take you higher.

The power of what to do it is in you.

So, start right now and choose to be.

Because You want to

Blank Canvas

Amazing things happen when you stare at a blank page –

As I was preparing to do my entry for this blog, I was captivated by this amazing blank canvas where I was about to explode from the implode of words within my soul.

To create a beautiful canvas that would stimulate.

I thought how dynamic this is to be

Able to take nothing and make it something.

The power of words.

I get a little, you know, deep in thought because my writings come very intuitively.

I don’t prepare for, I don’t sketch it out over and over, typically what you receive is a first time run through.

My mind as it unwinds.

Where I dictate my thoughts, as I ought  

So, whether it’s poetic, metaphorical, or categorical.

Something pensive or incentive

I hope it can provide perspective, somewhat suggestive,


That grabs the reader, and makes them a believer in


I want to touch a light


Make things right.


To make a difference

Captivate and motivate.

So, to closeout this blog today

Here are some words that are in my heart.

They weren’t here from the start, but

As I began to give thought to the hour it made me think about the power

We have – when we just come simplistically.

To the people that we don’t even realize we’re touching

To come in a state that does not hinder.

To open up our minds to a greater surrender.

To be in a place where we will motivate cause we’re not even looking at the race.

We know the reader may be a speeder someone who is going fast in time.

Looking back not even sure if the rhyme is going to make a nickel or dime.

But I think as we

Collectively bring against our sensitivity

We put ourselves in the position which could take us higher.

We may be inspired.

To do the things that seemingly would be something.


Words in Season

Tell the truth.

Don’t be aloof!

Keep it in season and speak for a reason.

What do you gain when you refrain?


Conveys that words are more than a simple rhyme.

Speak in season.

You are gifted for a reason.

Words can deliver and they can make your quiver.

From the inside words can be the divide, or make you ride the high tide, with your thoughts open wide.

The right words can make you fall and be willing to give it all.

The wrong words can go unheard, inferred, and transferred to break-

Your spirit

what’s in a word?



Have a word shower.

Recreate the energy.

Develop the synergy.

Through what is spoken, words, leave a power token?

Are you open?

Receive what is a mystery.

Think in syllables.

Words can be unforgivable.

Visible and often formidable to downright despicable

Try to be liberal with words that will cultivate.

In this there is no debate

Use your words to motivate.

Elevate and activate that within you.

It is never too late!

Images of You

History creates the mystery, but what is it that you see?

You see the images, diminished, wait your life is not finished.

Cultivated by the past wondering, will your song last?

Giving it another sound may bring everything around

It very well could turn your frown upside down.

Make time in this space to see this race.

Are you running at a good pace?

Or do you wear the scars upon your face?

Has the race created another place, oh take a taste.  

That place is not the sum of what you hoped.

Yet in the reflection of it all you are so much more dope !

What you are as a shooting star it does not matter what is off afar.

Between you and me you have great possibility.

As you remove all that binds, it’s time to get off your behind (time).

What is it that keeps you from driving forward?

Striving onward?

You see life is like a car, it moves forward, has a rear view, it has rear lights, left hand, and right-hand turn signals.

But you have to decide the acceleration of your manifestation.

You have to decide when to go (forward) when to stop (the madness) when to turn (your life around)

Where to set your direction or your course,

Don’t determine your destination by your hesitation.

By your reservations

Take that image and drive it to the finish.

Know that you are destined to win, even if you have to begin again.

Present in Life!

Sight to see new heights within me.

Driving aware as I pull my hair out from despair.

What will I wear, who will care?

Where will I go, who will show?

What should I do, if only you knew?

Maybe I will return to my bed, getting up is often all in my head.

Getting up is not just physically, it is mental and referential.

Why you may say, let me ask, what did you do today?

You got up, but are you woke up?

Are you striving or simply surviving?

Are you achieving your goals or making a mark showing the start of a plan?

Is the game the same?

Is the attempt being mimicked?

Or the effort peppered by another excuse, oh what is the use?

Come and let’s be what we are sen-ti-men-ti (ly) meant to be.

Who are you by design?

What must you refine?

In this day, come what may, always say epically.

I am here to be
