A Monday

Monday-Fresh-StartGood morning dear one. How well did you sleep?
I took no melatonin and slept very deep.

I was up early this morning and am currently working out.
Yes, I’m on the gazelle giving myself hell; calories and I are in a bout.

What’s the news on the hill all about? Really.
Stormy is doing what the Nor Easter could not; salaciously silly.

It’s no new news that folks lie on their willy.
To think porn will be the winner of scorn… again it looks silly.

And so I’ve turned my cheek and I am ready to tackle a new day,
though I can’t help but think about the debacle surrounding McCabe.

He was set to retire today.
Instead, his pension appears to be floating away.

Heyyyy Monday! What’s really good?
What positive moves can we make in our hood?

fresh-off-the-boat_family-conversation.gifLet’s start with a conversation around the dinner table;
let’s explain to our youth the difference between acting unhinged and being stable.

We have to.
If we don’t – we’re screwed.

The youth are looking at the hill and deciding whether or not
they should grow up and act adult-like or continue to be a snot.

The latter, they cannot. We have to deliver that information.
What this country is going through is comparable to self-degradation.

A Monday is a great day to speak up and talk to a kin
about America’s fall and how we can rise again.

Good morning dear one, it’s so good to commune with thee,
I’m Qui
over here doing me, trying to make a challenging Monday feel like a breeze.



Mix It Up, Baby

We’ve finished this week of thirds in victorious might.
My segue to getting here came to a head,  after GAME NIGHT.

That’s the name of the film that I saw last night at AMC theater.
Laughter reigned from beginning to end, as far as I can remember.

I actually tried not to laugh too boisterous or hardy
as not to miss any dialogue being transferred to a party.

I saw the late show but was safely home by the stroke of midnight.
A movie a day won’t keep the doctor away,’ but it will lend a cinematographer student insight.

game night_comradery.jpgI need all of the light on this journey, that I can bask in.
I laughed so much; Jason Bateman is touched
and Rachel McAdams comedic sense is a win.

Pappadeuxs, a little homework, and a movie – I got it all it in,
and now the excitement of another workweek finally comes to an end.

Are you ready kinfolk? Are you wearing your dancing shoes?
Life is a game that must be played,” and I don’t want to lose.

Life is full of battles – we should be careful to pick and choose,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, keep laughing and showing your teeth; be mindful to mix up your groove.

A Twinkle for A Wrinkle

A WRINKLE IN TIME: Meg, (her little brother) Charles Wallace, and Ms. WhatsIt

Pardon me, I didn’t catch your response to that last question of mine.
I was inquiring if you have had a chance to see A WRINKLE IN TIME?

I did, indeed – filled with curiosity and excite.
If fact, I was in the theater last Friday on opening night.

I took it all in; I did not fall asleep.
The film had a consistent and strong moral release.

I read a lot
into that 2-hour slot.

The film’s message encouraged me to hold-on and keep the faith.
It reminded me that The IT is seeking to penetrate my space.

I won’t let it.
As for the film? I won’t forget it.

Of the morals woven into Disney’s tale, I did see this:
To white men in America,’ they sent a message. (8).gif

Calvin and Dr. Alex Murray

The message was in the loving foundation that shaped and pulled the show through;
it said you can still head up the family heart-thumbnail– they just, may not look like you.’

It also showed us that The IT has no respect of person.
The IT is hate and if it resides in one’s heart, can become a community burden.

The tale showed us that when evolving and growing, change may hurt a little.
This was shown every time Meg would quantum leap – the transit scenes in the middle.

Did you see it? Did you see A WRINKLE IN TIME?
The vibrancy of color was newly on shine.

Wasn’t the brilliance of Ms. WhatsIt’s hair color simply divine?
Did you dig Charles Wallace? He represented innocence, intertwined.

Did you dig Calvin’s role? He journeyed with Charles and Meg.
Did you get that he was looking to belong when The IT got into his head?

We saw his abusive dad, instead of love. He had a family devoid of care.
It was that bit of insight that co-signed why Calvin was there.

Again, the film is about feeling needed, loved and included.
Love and faith can conquer all and rebuild whatever The IT has uprooted.

I loved the film. It was deep, it required me to think and yielded me hope.

Good morning to thee, I thought A WRINKLE IN TIME was dope.
