Loving and Living with Cancer

20170503_163214

It will change both you, in so many ways, unseen

running deep.

But if you hold each other frequently,

talk it through

being gentle always

God will continue to bless

your union. And it’s ok

to be afraid, either one of you

or to express you like this or that,

just never give up

on each other.

You can heal

some of the shattering.

Never walk away 

adding to the devastation.

Trust

and move forward.

Remember

to talk – alot.

Love isn’t just emotions,

love

is a choice.

The Wings of Birds Soaring

20190719_151842(0)

Wordflow only holds onto the healing of poetry

as long as bitterness is cast away

spinning, descending

back to where it came from.

Our best work

lives with a heart running strong

like prayers on the wings

of birds soaring.

Whirlwinds

Grey Sky

As we search for a poem, bringing shape to our whirlwinds,

our ghosting words,

refining spinning

in a furnace tested by fire

becoming word art, work of art

lines launched

beyond the rubble 

until we finally see the vision

and then,

we write it all down.

A Time That Never Was

20170628_132524

So what is our determination? To live as one nation?

Or to sleep with our assault rifles, dreaming of a time that never was, and when not everyone was truly free?

A time filled with black and white TV showing us soap commercials

and that she’s a good wife keeping his shirts clean?

Stop dreaming.

If you really want to live the 2nd Ammendment

go buy a musket.

We’ll all be safer that way.

No one needs

an assault rifle,

no one. Wake up

and smell the coffee.

393 Million

20170916_122348

There are 393 million guns in the United States, not including military and police weapons.

We have more guns here than we have people. For every man, woman, child, and infant…. there is a gun, and more than that.

There are times that police arrive on the scene of a shooting and they are out gunned by the shooter.

Countries such as Britain don’t have mass shootings because they have few guns. It’s simple math really.

Having more guns makes us less safe.

And yet certain Senators continue to block legislation that would help us to be safer.

If you live in the U.S. please let your Congressional representatives and Senators know you want some common sense gun control.

The time is now.

Peace.
