She wails into a deep cry,
feeling the Spirit detach and say it’s goodbyes to the body of earth,
It has always known.
Separation beyond the skies into the unknown, she cries.
Weeping for the collection of souls,
lost for the cause.
Her heart made aware of their dimming flames,
to be preserved within her.
I am of the past,
the present, and the future;
reminiscent reflections of incomplete potential.
Never satisfied with the present,
I seek a brighter image.
A confident black woman fulfilled.

I can see the world inside your eyes,
a planetarium for display.
I can see the night of your waters,
buried beneath the ocean’s blue.
I can feel the temperature drop deep,
into the dark of the depths,
and the creatures that hide there.
I appreciate your mixture of blues.
From the sea onto the skies,
A light paint splashed heavy,
like the flow of your tides.
Your clouds are steamy dreams,
accents to highlight your moon.
I am in awe of your stars,
uplifting flames of motivation;
unmatched to the lion of your sun.
Clearest of all, I see your gift,
your world of authentic love and truth.
For Chris S. [Cancer Sign] 12.8.19
Frozen cold as ice,
Her eyes still on intention.
Melts dreams into fruition.
Calm, the breeze of higher self.
A radiant smile.
She carries through the rainfall.
The best medicine.
