Motivational Monday Poem: Writer’s Train

Language speeding past In a blend of light and sound Energizing the artist on the Central platform   Hurried words without a plot Poetry in motion Song breaking barriers Play, uncast   The singular artist Absorbs, reflects, and absorbs The mind electric and the body tingling Ready to board the train Not as a passenger,Continue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: Writer’s Train”

Motivational Monday Poem: Hands of Bravery

Calling out through intentional noise Voices strained yet speaking truth to power Silence attempts speak volumes Staining the souls of the perpetrators   Awoke, arisen, aware of baseless prejudice Bravery in the face of ignorance Courage moving us all forward Destiny guided by hands once bound by intimidation   You are heard You are valuedContinue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: Hands of Bravery”

Motivational Monday Poem: Characters in Waiting

Mesmerized into separation Floating through time and space Alone without loneliness Trapped in imagination   Characters, alive in thought Strangers to all but one Their paths pre-determined By the whim of the pen   They flourish or suffer A single artist the puppet master Locked away until needed Pleas echoing off figmented clouds Fictional silhouettesContinue reading “Motivational Monday Poem: Characters in Waiting”

Motivational Monday Poem: On a Breeze

The rejuvenation of Spring Kisses the eyelids Pierces the soul Awakens the senses   Nature and Nurture – equal parts home The origin of life and how well we live it Moments pass, noticed or not Renewing, refreshing, and re-energizing   We are part of a whole Connected though holy apart
