Another Tuesday is here and I’m thanking my blogging friends by sharing their words with you. So take a peek at their pages and be entertained. Let them know you found them from my page.

 

I would have definitely re-blogged this post if I re-blogged regularly. It is an inspiring piece that touched me and put tears of inspiration in my eyes. Please check it out. Purple Rays

 

Crunk Feminist Collective A college professor that is out spoken on anything that puts a buzz in her ear. She’s pro woman, pro black and makes a lot of sense. So get politically correct here.

 

Somerempress is a busy woman, a wife, mother and professional woman who shares many thoughts on life, art and current events. She is passionate and writes about what’s on her mind very well. So treat yourself with some of her great post.

 

Raw Multi Media Richard (Rik) is a fellow New Yorker and a busy young man. He’s got his creative mind in a little of everything. He writes. He creates videos. He’s artistic with his photos. He may even sing and dance for all I know. But what I’m sure of is you will find lots of fun and interesting things on his blog.

 

The Otherside of Ugly Who doesn’t know Sheri? You’re missing a spiritual feast if you don’t. She is so in tune with nature and the universe that the spirits speak to her. She loves us humans so much her words are very up lifting. Don’t take my word for it go check her out.

THE MIGHTY PEN: poets and writers as change agents

The Patchwork Scribble Factory back in the ’70s when we still used typewriters, typed manuscripts and submitted them by snail mail after making photocopies.

Writers, poets and other artists are often the change agents in a world that seeks the balance of reason to counter violence, injustice or stagnation.

On Saturday, 27 September, 100,000 Poets (and Writers, Musicians, Artists and Activists) will join in cities and towns around the world to explore and inspire positive changes for issues of human rights, poverty, hunger, climate, and peace-making. You can learn more about that effort and see what’s happening in your area by linking HERE.

The Bardo Group is hosting a virtual event as a vehicle to facilitate blogger participation and also for those who may not live near an off-line event or who may be homebound. Tomorrow, we are jump-starting our participation with our traditional Writers’ First Wednesday prompt. Novelist, poet and writing coach, Victoria C. Slotto…

Last week I had this list prepared but I couldn’t remember what the title was I had it filed under. After I posted I stumbled over this list. Whew!! I was starting to think I didn’t create one.

 

Well without further ado here are blogs I would share I re-blogged if I re-blogged.

 

A beautiful poem I read last week by Zara

 

 

A little laugh for those in the “Golden Years” From Oyia Brown

 

 

Now a few more of my friends that need some following.

 

To Breathe is to Write Jackie is an extremely talented writer. She has a strong and vivid imagination. I am in awe when I read her stories. Her poems aren’t to be ignored either.

 

ABC of Spiritalk  My dear friend Carolyn. She is so witty. She writes and reads to us. She writes creative short stories. She uniquely compares us to the behavior of animals.

 

Reading Pleasure Talking about nice ladies. Here’s one, Celestine. She takes part in several writing challenges and boy can she come up with some fascinating stories and poems. She’s a bit of a romantic.  She is currently taking a break from blogging but I must tell you I do miss her.

 

Sarah Potter Writes Sara has many creative talents. She shares beautiful photos. She writes charming Haiku’s. She also participates in several of the challenges that circulate around Word Press. Most importantly she cares about our earth and the world.

 

Mind Love Misery Another talented writer who shares beautiful poetry and selects unique graphics to compliment her words. She also offers writing challenges that are interesting. If you aren’t following this lady you don’t know what you’re missing.

AUTOIMMUNE

Published September 22, 2014 by silentlyheardonce

Earth the earth mother births forth throughout all time
Fresh oceans and jungles, sand dunes and waterfalls
Mountains and dewdrops, snowdrops and hurricanes

Animal, vegetable, mineral: all relations under one roof
Relations with relationships, even the local hub her Sun
Though that’s another story (Any family has its secrets)

Symbiotic miracles manifest in an ecological ecologic
Self-sustaining, with immunity to exogenous disaster
Then enter stage right the loup-garou, immune to logic

Humanity, wolverine, acts as an autoimmune disease
Fighting against not external foes but its own family
Renegade berserker, out of control and without a cure

Corporate drug baron fat on steroids plays mind games
Touts temporary solutions that suppress the symptoms
While steadfastly ignoring the most obvious causations

Lethal cash infections further weaken the body politic
Peddle profitable pills that promise only artificial health
While side effects are busy destroying something else

A toxin poisoning the heart where love’s dream expires
Stoking fiery emotions where patience once held sway
Eating through the bones whose power is but a memory

Unexplained fevers erupt in rage on the nightly newscast
So-called progress is just a progression of the sickness
An extreme fatigue? Yes, extremely tired of the insanity

A Day of Peace Forever

no arms in aggression
no fist poise to maim
no shots ringing
no screams echoing
no tears falling
no blood spilling
no violence erupting
misguided anger cured
vaccination against hate
a growing epidemic
spreading infectious love
in a second, in a minute
in an hour, in a day
hearts beating, pumping hope
a single day of peace
in this place, from sea to sea
in this time, around the globe
everyone, everybody, everyday
from every tongue
through every lip
into every ear
a silent whisper
quiet
still
a hypnotic symphony
gently blowing
to infinity and back
world peace
