I may not have diamonds and pearls
yet I am independently wealthy
with the my tender sparkling smile

I’m not adorned in silver and gold
yet I shimmer and shine
with a precious heart of patience

I don’t live in a mansion
yet I have an open house
filled with doors of understanding

I may not drive a Bentley
yet I sport elegant luxuries
equipped with compassionate

I may not have much in savings
yet I yield high dividends
with warmth, love and peace

I may not be independently wealthy
yet I have valuable resources
with respect raining gratis

my riches are in bearer bonds
a valuable bounty in the hands
of my brethren
in this thunderous universe

Tribal Cries

 wounded screams from the majority
outraged by the abuse of authority
how much innocent blood must be spilled
how many hearts of sorrow must be filled
we shout and demand political justice
they forget our brothers are precious
killing each other is a genocide crime
learn to love ourselves, it’s about time
eliminate ignorance, ego, and self hate
remember our legacy, it’s rich and great
pages bursting with powerful ancestors
respecting ourselves is the only answer
the time is now to stand tall and courageous
hold accountable the brothers acting outrageous
no time for this attacking, looting and burning
stop living the ignorance we’ve been learning
march for peace and justice in the hood
earn respect and fear as we should
the civil servants work for you and me
we are American citizens, equal and free
they say in the constitution, we’re not represented
then it’s time to we get those pages amended
we are tired of the police being free to rapid pop
disrespecting the life of our children must stop

gentle beats
altering light
gems of worth
is me that I am
touches of emotions
scents of devotions
feelings of warmth
sounds of the wind
tastes of kind
my senses fill
with embracing peace
and centering release
true happiness is
lingering and growing
multiplying, overflowing

a long leg spider creeps
along a wooden fence
next to a an ancient maple
in a whisper she crawls
under the glow of the moon
crickets rubbing their feet
surrounded by peace
dark in a corner
she spins her web
each silky thread a purpose
crafting a geometrical pattern
an intricate maze of
twist and turns
joining one line to the other
a fort against predators
whom lurk in the shadows near
securing her future
her center core

ants carrying
here, there, everywhere
a hundred times its weight
toiling below
the fire of the sun
against blowing wind
sharing a community
each a purpose
each a job
together they survive
they carry their own
because he ain’t heavy
a vision that inspires
the reason to sustain
in earth’s eco system

each day we build our future
reaching hearts, minds and souls
the writer in me
needs the musician
to play my inspiration
the patient needs the doctor
to heal the pain
the teacher needs the student
to inspire and teach
the mother needs the father,
so does the child
to make a family
we weave an intricate thread
we carry the weight of the world
no one is insignificant
each has a link to the other
a purpose
a responsibility
to life and it continuance

repair the broken threads
use only what we need
honor the wonders of nature
protect our communities
explore the core of our being
build for our children
with a single thread
a purpose for living
survive in an unforgiving world

Screw The Customer

If you’re not happy with W changes read this post.

The customer is not right. The customer is dumb. The customer doesn’t know what they want until we tell them. Their complaints are meaningless.

I am sick of this attitude to customer service.

Way back at the turn of the millennium, before the days of torrents and instant watch, I was a Netflix power user. I loved their service and would tell everyone I knew about it. I was personally responsible for at least three of my friends and two family members signing up. I didn’t get anything in return either. They gave me no referral discount or whatever. I did it because I believed in their product and thought they were great.

I spent about as much time on their site, writing reviews and making lists of movies as I now spend on WordPress. I was a top ten reviewer. At one point, I was on the five DVD…

The Audacity of Love

Published August 16, 2014 by silentlyheardonce


Love is a season,
With all reason,
Changeable and rearrange able.
Lost in an abyss of mystery,
cause wars in history.

Predetermined illusions,
creates madness and confusion.

Chills warm the blood.
Tears cause a tsunami flood.
Piercing pain, am I insane?

A Ferris wheel of emotion,
false devotion.

Unconditional until compromised,
the fallen meets their demise.

Adrenaline pumping desire,
discovering the players a liar.

Love a glutton demon,
Leaving gifts of semen.

The heart skips a beat,
when the victim surrender in defeat.

Dig a moat around the tower,
dress in armor to fight the power.
Fall victim to the spirit,
a broken heart you’ll inherit.

Love’s sweet song
I keep singing along.

Tear out my soul,
With words that console.
Feed the fantasy,
With the audacity,
Of loves’ mastery.

Night of the Blue Moon

under the blanket of night
knees curled to chest
weary eyes squeezed tight
as the world silently weeps
and stillness fills the dark
a weary soul is rocked to sleep
nature plants a tender kiss
filling hearts with soothing calm
with a sweet serenading bliss
fear and anxiety will cease
awakening in tranquility
caressing a quiet peace
