The Way Things Are Shaking Out

In News on April 21, 2021 at 9:09 am
Come on lil’ fella,’ shake a tail.

Good morning, good looking. How are you today?
What time did you wake up? Did you kneel and pray?

I sure hope so, because today holds a lot.
If today isn’t your payday, you probably aren’t looking for squat.

But you should be.
The fact that you are alive is key.

Vibrate higher.
Be a composer of good and then be a sire.

Good morning, good looking. How’s it shaking?
If doing good isn’t 1st nature to you – get to faking.

Jit-up good intent until it’s authentically you.
Allow today to ‘shake-out a much better hue.

Days until Summer? We still have a few.
Good morning, good looking. What what are you going through?

I’d rather focus on today and our efforts to clip the Covid jeers.
2020 was blurry, hate-plentiful & in a hurry; Thank God for change this year.

The way things are shaking out – President Biden and VP Harris are at the helm stitching united sums.
Minnesota delivered lawful progress and the Black Community was hugged.

It felt good and we all hugged the moment back.
And while my soul could breathe, there is something we all still lack —


The Chauvin verdict renewed the idea of “exceptional good,”
but how will it affect American history and the future of minority hoods?

It was less than a year ago— when George Floyd lost his 46-year-old life.
I was hurt, but not shocked, I told God, and I cried.

Then I stood up and marched on.
I composed Griot pieces with no alarm
and continued to support America, our home.

It’s what’s we do when things don’t shake-out the way that we want them to.
We pick ourselves up and pray for safe passage to make it through.

We give ol’ Sulk-a-lot the boot.
I’m quick to ditch sulk —you should too.

We’re Americans; we unite. It’s just what we do.
We calibrate for unity — democracy rules.

Celebrations are going on in a couple of states, perhaps even a few.
We’re Americans; we unite, and we accept reality’s truths.

The way that things are shaking out… makes me want to do a little twerk
at the possibility of achieving equality and unity by putting in a little lawful work.

What are your thoughts? What good will today toss-up or bring about?
I’m Qui
True to the RED, the WHITE, and the BLUE — even when in doubt about “The Way Things Are Shaking Out”.

April 20, 2021 displayed new hope in our scope…


about UNITY.

Cool Yellow Wall

Tarisma: But I don’t see life like you do. I never have.
Qui:  And that’s okay. Your perspective is useful to me. It help’s me to shape the dimensions of my own situation. My view should help you likewise. Your journey is not mine, and mine is not yours, but if you share your view and I share mine, we may be able to calibrate our own situations into something more dimensionally desirable. What do you think?

I like yellow.  In particular this shade of yellow:
Life is huge. I think of it as a big body of water filled with action bouys, (i.e., opportunity). Pick and choose. Opportunities come with certain consequences. Choose wisely.

Stay Focused. I purposely painted my office wall yellow. A sunny yellow because it helps to me to connect with my default sunny disposition. I like to stay focused on ‘what I mean,’ what I’m trying to represent. I prefer to  focus on and linger in the good. Good comes in waves. I ride the waves. I enjoy riding your good waves with you – call me the cheerleader. Good energy is to be shared, therefore, if you’re having a high day please feel free to drop by and ‘show off’ for me. lol! #PutMeOnTheList I love living “the good feeling” with you. Also, I give the biggest high fives and the tightest hugs. “Go for it! Get it! You deserve it!”

You Get what You Give. — I live by it. I give a lot of good energy and I get a lot of good energy back. It goes both ways. #Karma If you want people to greet you with a smile, approach them smiling. 8 times out of 10 it works for me. 🙂


The world is colorful don’t be blinded by it’s beauty.
You like traditional, but she likes tooth fruity.

You don’t have to be bought, you are not for sale.
This body of water is yours, set up your boat and sail.

Build a life you want to live and be sure to take care
with the color of your walls and the memoirs you hang there.

You will see this every day, it will meet you at every point;
I painted my wall yellow because I like to feel sunny in my joint.

Life has many compartments, (i.e., many rooms),
Perhaps in another area, I’ll paint it a periwinkle hue.

This life (space) is yours, insist that it benefits you – without stall,
I’m Qui
Happy Monday morning to thee, focus on you and the hue of your wall.

Tarisma is currently working on her sunny disposition. She also confessed that her walls were factory gray and that she’s currently looking through swatches ISO a positive connection to change the color

Tarisma is the childhood friend that keeps me grounded. We’ve been friends since 7th grade English Honors class. I love her and need her.

Taking It All In

Spring is in the air, peep the lush lawn, bushes and trees.
Spring is in the air, I’m reminded every time I sneeze.

Achoo! What about you, how doth Spring agree?
Did you spend all week in the house with the TV?
Well, thank God for the weekend’s sweet release.
Or was it more like the Judge’s gav’ adjourning?

I know that you know what I mean I watched it a few times, too.
Not sure which page our era is on, but I’m in here with you, Boo.

‘Still in love with you, too. I’m steadfast for unity.
What else do you think I eat, sleep, and breathe?

A closer vibe between you & me.

It’s quite the dream…
one that I’d like to engage in this Spring.

What have you got planned for the day?
What do you say ‘we put on some masks and make a quick dash to the park and play?

Have you eaten breakfast, yet? If not, please allow me to cook.
Bacon and eggs upon request, or a smoothie for a more svelte look.

Whatcha going for?
Whatever you desire, I aim to score.

We got this…I got this. Today is a day for our inner child,
I’m Qui
Up early with thee filled with thanks and humility bidding you love, prosperity, and smiles.
