Attuned

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement, TV Shows on January 31, 2020 at 1:35 am

attuned-optical-illusion.gif

One thing that I am not into is fear.
God is real and I hold His word dear.

So, while the impeachment show dominated all screens –
I kept my mind focused on the one true King.

I did. I really did.
And the view of satellite news hit the bin.

Shame so deep; senators whose faces should be hid.
I will study them not. “A better life,” is my bid.

Honey child/beloved kid: please don’t get caught up
in between the clutches of folks kissing other folks butt’s.

No balls and all nuts. I have been keeping tabs
on the game of “hockey with our democracy” and the constitutional jabs.

Republicans, dear Republicans what do you stand to win
by supporting ‘no support for yourself’ and an admin that isn’t your friend?

Most of its roster ends up behind bars.
That type of cameo paints no one a star.
Oh no, child. Not by far.

Take a deep breath and think about your life.
Are you refreshed or stressed when you open your eyes

in the morning? To be alive is a blessing
please don’t spend it “status-quo” stressing.

Time is non-refundable and no one knows when they will die.
One thing I don’t do is wait; I stay in search of my best life.

I think about you and I and I’m inspired to write.
I turn the television off for more attuned insight.

So how’s it going with you? Are you feeling alright?
I’m finally turning-in
from last nights editing gig –
‘and don’t want the sun to catch my eyes.alice-in-wonderland-curtsey-bow.gif

I just didn’t want to turn-in before checking in with you
and say: “this week of impeach – I’m happy to bid adieu.”

As for our future and what it may hold —
I encourage us all to be vigilant and vote.

I enjoyed-not the senators show
and I am aware that we can change it with our vote.

So let’s do it; keeping this moment in mind.
Utilize your DVR and often rewind.

Reality was unkind. Please give all concerns to God. He rocks.
A man’s expand is limited to land and will always be in a box

if he intends to harm and/or oppress.
I’m always asking you to pray, now I’m asking you to not stress.

This moment is only a test.
Serious about your spirituality? Then be your best.

Energy is real.
Isolate it or become physically ill.

Consider using this weekend to disconnect and unplug,
surround yourself with good people and give them a hug.

When you kneel to pray, ask God to fill-up your cup
with the fruits of the spirit and a double-dose of love.

Don’t forget to request of God in all of His givin’
that He bless you and I with an abundance of wisdom.

You deserve it. I believe that I do, too.
I’m Qui
Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget that I love you.

Control the narrative of this story by taking daily notes
and paint a clear picture when next you go to the poll.

My Senses Told Me

In Comedy, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 29, 2020 at 5:45 pm

I never wanted to believe that my Dad was stealing from his job as a road worker.

traffic-road-highway-signs.jpg

But when I got home, all the signs were there.

How are your senses: Touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste?
Notice each body-part is on, around or has access to your face. 😛

‘Makes sense that everything’s within intimate reach if you want to sense it.
You can probably have a bite of it — right after you rinse it.

Assuming it’s fresh fruit.
The smell and taste is comparable to youth.

Fruit is only good in it’s youth,
though it shines best being digested by you.

Why eat fruit?
The ingredients are true.

There are all sorts of things that you can sense, smell, and taste,
but you may not want them in your face:
butt-cheek-joke.jpg

You get my drift…then again, a drift is what you want to miss indeed.
Use the nose for flowers, Mom’s cooking or Snoop’s weed.

Use your sense of touch (handsy-fill-up) on some fresh fruit and/or your mate.
Don’t have either on hand? Go grocery shopping and pick-up a date.

Single people love to hangout at the grocery store – it’s true.
Roll thru with a basket on aisle 8 and see what it do.

Your intuition is a sense, though it’s not near your face.
Your intuition will keep you on-point and generally safe.

Ladies: roll down the aisle exhibiting grace.
Men: be on the lookout; use the senses on your face.

When you see or smell an attraction coming
get near the subject and start to humming.

Okay, wait! That may not be the best way to score —
unless you’re into security and a show to the door.

butt-cheek-joke2.jpeg

Then again, I am not your intuition; I am not that sense.
I am your melanin sister with blonde hair who can be a little dense

when it comes to telling you how to pick up dates.
Your five senses will pull you through…be sure to pray.

I don’t want you out there being insensitive on any day.
If you piss someone off, have a joke on hand to say:

Okay, have one or two.
If the first doesn’t work – this one will do:

Word-Savvy

Is buttcheeks one word?

Or should I  s p r e a d  them?

Are you smiling now? Good. So I’ll make this quick:
Get in touch with your senses; smell, touch, and lick

every thing that you see, including that desired person near.
Get them alone in a room and make sure that the coast is clear.

With ears on alert the footsteps of others – you’ll be keen to hear –
then express your senses more, i.e., a consensual sear.
What do you say dear?

The evening is nigh and My Senses told me that you needed a change in vibe,
I’m Qui
Infecting your senses via the write. Thank you for being sensitive and stopping by.

A More Meaningful Monday

In Communication, Griot, Movies, News, Self Improvement, Video on January 27, 2020 at 4:48 am

give-thought-meaningful.gif

It’s Monday again, but what does it mean?
Are we to comprehend what others say and unravel at the seams?

Me think not.
The day is young and the seat ain’t hot.

Is it?
I woke up early to Griot spit-it.
What about you? TAG! You’re it.

the-gavel.gifWhat are your intentions to see this day through?
It’s a friendly question from me to you.

What sayest ye on this Monday, good fellow?
Did you sleep well last night; was your weekend mellow?

Mine was. Regardless of the relentless hug
that Congress yielded to us; I call it love.

I rested well; meditated and stuff.
That’s what I do at impositions marked “rough.”

And I do believe that history will recall —
this era to be “rough” without an inked stall.

The moment is trying.
But I ain’t buying.

self-hug.gif

Life is intended to be lived;
to love to laugh, receive and give.

What are you giving today?
No hardness or bubblegum focus on the play.

Me? I’m giving encouragement, compliments, and love.
Starting with myself; I will begin with a HUG.

Did you hug yourself today?
Go on and list-it-out followed by a bullet point to PLAY.
It’s imperative that you don’t forget. Okay?

Inject and acquire more Meaning today.
Voice your opinion and comprehend the say.
Be mindful in the moment: A More Meaningful Monday.
Get up, get out, and get something; let OUTKAST play:

.

Today is a fine day because you’re alive and good moves are within your reach.
I’m Qui
and this day would have little meaning without you – pray for the dude whose under impeach.

In the spirit of “more meaning,” call it a good deed.
Let a blanket of love be our collective response and release.

The perfect way for this piece to end —
is to request more prayers for the loved ones of:

Kobe, Gigi, and Friends.

Make it A More Meaningful Monday.

 

 

 

 

Kobe, GiGi, and Friends

In Communication, Griot, News on January 26, 2020 at 3:38 pm

memorial-butterflies-flying

My reaction? Speechless when at first they had told me,
“Qui, have you heard? I think we just lost Kobe.”

Do what? And why would you say that?
I prayed it an unthoughtful prank. The type? Real bad.

I succumb to the emotion: sad – when I did realize
the comment was not a joke and that Kobe has died.

Though not alone, there were 8 others who I pray REST IN PEACE —
among them Kobe’s 13-year old daughter, la bella GiGi; Baller. Pretty.

Frozen in a glare are my eyes as I comprehended what I read.
With all imagination about me, I’ve difficulties settling in my head.

Any victim crossing over is a big thing to digest.
I didn’t know Kobe personally, but his energy was: best.

Talk about being fast out-of-the-gate and acing life’s success test!
He did that — from a young lad to a young 41-year old dad & NBA vet.

Kobe was quick & fast. He lived in hyper speed.
He was generous with his prosperity; he sowed many seeds

quietly. He didn’t do it for show.
So, yeah my heart’s affected that we have to let him go.

Whoa unto Lady Vanessa. I am praying for her without cease.
That her heart can mend post losing daughter & best friend in such seismic release.

Do keep the entire family in your prayers.
God is with us when all and everything doesn’t look fair.

He is still with us even when we are in doubt.
Pray for the fam. Your good energy is needed now.

Me? Well besides talking to you, I’m really talking to myself.
My emotions are on my sleeve; I don’t endeavor to be stealth.

I don’t know what you had planned for today,
but several big energies have gone away.

Take a moment to be grateful that the energy released was not yours.
I’m Qui
and I’m going to miss Kobe, GiGi & Friends. Today “the other side” netted a score.

The BACKEND

Click here to read about the “Venus of Beautiful Butt.”

I think that it’s high time we talk about the ‘hind-kind’ again.
As in your backside, badonkadunk, your derriere, o’ friend.

Let’s talk about your keister, your tuchus, your butt.
Let’s talk past the quarterbacks last count & hut-hut…

Word is, at 50 most folks should consider getting a colonoscopy done.
I am no such age yet nor do I imagine the procedure is much fun

but it’s a teller of what’s going on back there; a way to measure the sum
of -ish you ate yesterday that has or has not exited your bum.

Anywho, between me and you, I went to see a GI specialist the other day.
I marched my healthy arse in, knowing exactly where it’s been – to hear the doc’s say.

Who want’s to wait until 50 to get a peek
inside of the mounds that we call our seat?

Not me.
I insisted the doc take a peek

and he did oblige me with care.
He lit up his wand and went in my bum to see what’s up in there.

He looked twice
and asked if I’d like him to look thrice?

alien-butt-shaker

Not if twice is enough.
He was very gentle and not rough.

I really and truly appreciate that.
Upon retreating he concluded ‘I had a healthy ass.’

I’m paraphrasing of course, and the procedure was not a full body
scope of 6-ft bendable rope; it was not a complete C-scopy.

It was a short scope with a light
that went in for 2-3ft of insight.

There was nothing there.
My anus is secure beyond my mound-pair.

Sir Mix-Alot appreciates a firm-round and I’m happy to report,
that he hasn’t seen mine and I’m a healthy score.

What about you? Have you given any attention to your backdoor?
Beyond your lover checking it out; beyond the ball, the beads, and the oar?

Well, I’m not sure what you’re into.
Feel free to use whatever you want to

I’m good with that, I’m knocking at the human core.
I’m making sure to not be demure about the backdoor.

Are you bi-anal? It’s the perfect question to close with. 😛
I’m Qui
it’s the weekend baby and I’m a curious lady, how is your backend?

I’m no Insider to THE OUTSIDER but

In Book, Communication, Movies, Science, Video on January 22, 2020 at 8:13 am

Heck yeah! I like it.
Stephen King serves excitement.

I haven’t read the book, tho I think I will
for the first 3 episodes of THE OUTSIDER has dimensional appeal.

Jason Bateman is the Executive Producer
who took Stephen’s book and became a juicer.

Now I don’t know where the series script is going,
but I am pretty sure that the writers hand isn’t showing.

I watched carefully and intently across three episodes.
What I found was circumstance and supernatural whoa.

THE OUTSIDER is nothing like Sam and Dean’s SUPERNATURAL adventure.
It’s a fresh spin on family & friends with an untimely indenture.

Not to mention an alleged child killer — who isn’t the killer at all.
He attempted to hurl his innocence, and met a fatal fall.

Yes-yes y’all. Folks are vanishing like flies in this macabre.
Coach Terry’s world is on a cliff hurl; a spirit impersonates him on camera.

Yep. No human  being can be in two places at one time.
Though this is THE OUTSIDER’s modus operandi vine.

Stephen King! Stephen King! Where hast thou mind been?
Perhaps at home alone, justifying not hanging with friends.

I’m sure that Stephen King is a fairly like-able dude
but I’m also thinking he’s alone when he sits and scripts such juice.

I, too, am a writer and with full reflective intent
who bridges-not scripts of friends’ lives being spent.

I’m not a horror kid, but I am indeed well read,
and there’s something to be said about a writers head:

It has no limits.
Creativity is solid; not a gimmick.

As a writer I am an insider whose keen on bearing out scripted theories.
THE OUTSIDER is a Stephen King exciter and I very much like the series.

Thus far…
Jason Bateman is a dimensional star.

3 episodes-in and I am truly less wiser.
Stephen owns the view and wears the creative visor.

DO tune in quick – to avoid being the outsider.

Next episode airs on Sunday @ 7pm; HBO does not miss,
I’m Qui
A serial writer and evolving exciter. Are you watching this?

FRIDAY NIGHT: Grown Folks Hour

Good evening and welcome home, already.
I get lonely without you; I’m so solo-steady.

Here’s a drink to curb your edge; tonight, call me Becky.
Let’s play a game of “Percale Chess;” tonight you can ‘check me.’

whisky-on-ice

Come on and affect me. By all means be effective.
I’m Queen, you’re King.  Let’s intertwine our collective.

Connecting dots of intentional deeds,
drawing lines and reaping seeds.
Your majestic vision supersedes the weeds.
Thrive in the moment of you and me.

Who, me? You know my spin.
I’m categorized in the “Writers” bin.

Shakespeare, Langston, Paul Dunbar, and Dr. Seuss
nourished my poetic roots; thus, I bear a similar fruit.

watermelon-tasting-kitty.gifThough, mine is much juicier and sweeter.
A connection with me, means that you’re a reader

of grown content… and that’s good.
because I’m all about the water the wood.

How much wood could a wood-chuck chuck if a wood-chuck could chuck wood?
My name ain’t Chuck but I chuck much. I’m a southern girl.  It’s understood.

This Friday’s chuck, by all accounts is 100% Grade A.

I pray thee tell me, how was your earning day?

and commitment to being grown.
I’m so very glad that you’re home.

Wide Open Wednesday

Thoughts-last-nights-debate.png
I had to think on it a while – pardon my expressive delay.

I enjoyed the CNN broadcast last night
and I think Sen. Warren did alright.

There were no hot topics that were cooled to the core,
and Sen. Warren did a great job at being honest and not sore.

Question_prompt
How many times has someone said something hurtful to you with no witnesses nearby;
tho when the tale was retold, that person chose to lie and deny?

Good people say foul stuff all of the time,
and a good handshake is not an appropriate response in-kind.

At the end of the debate Sen. Warren approached Sen. Sanders (they’re friends but not the best),
so when he extended his hand to shake her’s she clasped her fingers and drew them into  her chest.

Sen. Warren began to speak; though no audio was shared with us.
Tom Steyer approached the two in talks and his face looked like “hush.”

You know?
Tom’s smile turned into an “Uh-oh.”

Who knows what Sen. Sanders and Warren were saying?
Men devaluing women isn’t a joke and Warren isn’t playing.

Why on Earth would she handshake with a friend to ‘his not being honest?
Instead she approached him civilly to broach the topic; friends be up-on-it.

Real friends lay it out on the line, on the floor and on the table.
Bernies ‘overlay for the underplay‘ was an unappreciated fable

that Elizabeth Warren wasn’t feeling. Folks need to learn:
A woman can be sharp and graceful, but if you cross her, there’ll be a burn.

Even during ‘said burn,’ Sen. Warren was lady-like; she did it right and to that, I salute.
Mika Brzezinski missed the mark on MORNING JOE;  Sen. Warren displayed her value.

She spoke according to her own truths.
No shade to Sen. Sanders, tho, I bid him adieu.

Other than that, the debate was a smooth ride,
I’m Qui

Journey: MONDAY FUNDAY

Today is SHOOT DAY 1 of the AUTO SAFETY PSA.
I am up to claim scenes per the script’s relay.

What about you? I’m duly charting an 8-hour filming day.
Though I must admit, we may finish quick; pre-planning yields me a slay.

And so today is MONDAY FUNDAY. I need no jo’ right now.
I’m bright-eyed and bushy tailed on 6-hours sleep…anyhow,

Monday

FUNDAY.

I’m up and ready to go.
So what’s that you’re getting into, yo?

May I suggest your start out the week
the way you want it to play out (i.e., productive, smooth, and sweet)?

Up-up-up! Get up on your feet.
Today you lead the band; they march to your beat.

May it be one of fresh creativity
because you planned-out over a few weeks.

WE got this. You and I are so much like.
Monday’s are easy – like riding a bike.

You can’t forget how.
