Good morning June 16, 2010 –
Crush in the Ghetto by Jolie Holland

I’m floating with the birds
I’m talking to the weeds
Look what you’ve done to me

I’m still dressed up from the night before
Silken hose and an old Parisian coat
And I feel like a queen at the bus stop on the street
Look what you’ve done to me

It’s a beautiful morning in the ghetto
Finer than the day before
The ants are crawling over my pants as if to say
They know where the honey is

There’s really old roses blooming in the ghetto
Birds of paradise are taller than me
The weeds grow high, the birds flicker by
Children are walking to school

In the midst of all of this profusion
The bus pulls up to take me back home
The bus driver looks like an African prince
The babies have tears in their eyes

And I feel like a queen
On this sunny city bus
Look what you’ve done to me

April 20, 2010 – Some Black Women by Carolyn Rodgers who died earlier this month (1945-2010)

i am lonely,
all the people i know
i know too well

there was comfort in that
at first but now
we know each others miseries
          too well.

we are
          lonely women, who spend time waiting for
          occasional flings
we live with fear.
we are lonely.
we are talented, dedicated, well read

we are lonely,
we understand the world problems
Black women’s problems with Black men
          but all
we really understand is

when we laugh,
we are so happy to laugh
we cry when we laugh
          we are lonely.
we are busy people
always doing things
fearing getting trapped in rooms
loud with empty…
knowing the music of silence/hating it/hoarding it
loving it/treasuring it,
          it often birthing our creativity
                              we are lonely

being soft and being hard
supporting our selves, earning our own bread
knowing that need must not show
                              will frighten away
knowing that we must
walk back-wards nonchalantly on our tip-toeness
          if only for stingy moments

we know too much
we learn to understand everything,
to make too much sense out
of the world,
of pain
                              of lonely…

we buy clothes, we take trips,
we wish, we pray, we meditate, we curse, we crave, we coo,
we caw,

                              we need ourselves sick, we need, we need
we lonely we grow tired of tears we grow tired of fear
we grow tired but must al-ways be soft and not too serious…
                              not too smart not too bitchy not too sapphire
                              not too dumb not too not too not too
a little less a little more
                                        add here detract there

SCROLL to Time Code: 23:01 to hear Ms. Rodgers read her poem, Affirmations:

April 19, 2010 – I found part of a poem in one of my notebooks

The moonlight calms all fears

While tears fall neatly into the ocean

Another day has passed

The tide is lean, the sun kneels down

to kiss the earth one last time

I hold my breath out of necessity

The world seems smaller now, but then

I breathe in once more; I am free.

April 9, 2010 – a friend visited yesterday with news of a New Beginnings, this is for her (and me:) i am happy and i hope you are too!

New Beginnings

It’s only the beginning now
…a pathway yet unknown
At times the sound of other steps
…sometimes we walk alone

The best beginnings of our lives
May sometimes end in sorrow
But even on our darkest days
The sun will shine tomorrow.

So we must do our very best
Whatever life may bring
And look beyond the winter chill
To smell the breath of spring.

Into each life will always come
A time to start anew
A new beginning for each heart
As fresh as morning dew.

Although the cares of life are great
And hands are bowed so low
The storms of life will leave behind
The wonder of a rainbow.

The years will never take away
Our chance to start anew
It’s only the beginning now
So dreams can still come true.

by Gertrude B. McClain

April 6, 2010 – Enough LOVING, now let’s laugh! Giving thanks today for family, friendships and smiles:)

April 5, 2010 – One Art by Elizabeth Bishop

One Art

The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster,


Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three beloved houses went.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

Even losing you I shan’t have lied. It’s evident
the art of losing’s not too hard to master
though it may look like a disaster.

Elizabeth Bishop

April 3, 2010 – Sleep to Dream Her (Him) by Dave Matthews Band

March 30, 2010 – A Dream Within a Dream by Edgar Allen Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.


I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?
