In the works ~ Cover Illustrated by – ME~! :)
“If you don’t like my ocean don’t fish in my sea Stay out of my valley and let my mountain be.”
“You ll never miss the sunshine till the rain begin to fall Never miss the sunshine till the rain begin to fall You’ll never miss your hay till another mule be in your stall.”
The mother of Blues knew how to say it!
I, as anyone does, have the potential to reap great success now. I have all the self-discipline and focus I need to move forward.
If I find myself confronted by any outside distractions, I will just re-affirm my commitment to my goals and
continue to stay focused on making progress.
I feel I have the strength of a warrior now, so I will make the most of it! I choose to be the warrior and NOT the victim.
I cannot stand those that see others as weak and able to be manipulated. I will continue to think with my head as well as my heart and trust that the combination of the two will be all that justice will need to prevail.
The sun sets in glorious reds
Sounds of dusk come alive
So noisy the silence is deafening
The darkness exudes a grand cover
Unless the spotlight of the firefly
Reveals what is camouflaged
Where do the butterflies hide at night?
Dew falls from the sky of purple
Leaving washed the folded leaves
Secreting gardens of the day
Awaiting in moonlit beams
Hung in a sky of spectral color
What’s behind the star tips?
Calming but redoubtable
Souls benighted by the twilight
Depart behind illuminated windows
Not envying the nightly orchestra
Under clouds moving beyond the horizon
Unfolding mysteries with the gloaming
