Any Given THURSDAY

Good morning goodness. How are you so soon?
It’s almost 5am yet, I’m at 5-minutes til’ noon.

I’ve been awake for quite a while, so the sun will need to catch up.
I awoke to playing footsies and then I put-in on some love.

You know that I’m on my cardio; I’m trying to be “less.”
So playing twister with the Mr. is my fat burning confess.

It assists in melting stress. I’ve certainly no stress at this moment.
I do have treatments to bake and POC‘s to make;
creativity is mine – and I’m on it.

Human touch is necessary; the human spirit is real.
Monday through Hump Day we fight to get atop of the weeks hill.

Alas, here we are.
The week has been an incredible journey thus far.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Its capacity to be perpetual has long become mundane.
I won’t lie to you, goodness, I’m looking for things to change

significantly.
Sex should exceed Thursday’s indefinitely.

Life is a lot like sex. Agree? You’re either giving it or you’re getting.
Think of your bed as a yielding casino – get in there and start to betting.

Are you a stallion or rider?

Pick a horse and ride it like you’re wearing silicone spurs.
Be generous as you broach the cusp; fellas, please yield her’s first.

Pardon me. Do you find this piece to be a bit dir-tay?
Yeah well, that’s usually how I feel on Any Given Thursday.

And it’s okay. We’re all human; we can all relate.
As long as we live, to Mother Earth we’ll be kids
please don’t stall on the grown-up play.
It’s fantastic on a Thursday.

Alas, here we are, happily satisfied before the sun’s rise, yo.
The agile me – will make breakfast for thee and the sweetest cup of jo.

How much more goodness does this week hold?
I’m Qui
A Thursday loving she. Hardly secretive, but quite bold.

Let today find you doing whatever feels good to your soul.

 

YOUNGISH

Youngish, young in the mind, in-mature, act like a child
Yesterday, these words offended you – today they drive you wild.

Does time appears to be taking its toll?
Only if you let it. Don’t you dare get old!

Don’t even fathom or think of it!
Tune in to PBS again and love it.

When was the last time you felt blessed
to be learning from Bert and Ernie on PBS?

Do tell, child. Do tell.
I had been missing them as well.

Dare I confess
I am back to watching PBS?

I’m doing it for a friend;
the little child within.

Do you still acknowledge?
Is your inner child still off to college

while you physically age on the side?
Youth isn’t about age but your energy vibe.

little-blk-girl_dancingHow’s your energy and how freely are you vibin?’
You’re a child compared to Mother Earth, so please get to childin.’ 😛

Me? I’m already in route. I am “childin’ out!”
Good morning dear Tuesday. I know not a pout.

I hope you only know of smiles at this hour of the day.
If sadness sits near you later, refer back to this page

and let the kid in you play.’
Jump up and down and scream “hooray

like you’re ol’ Tom Cruise.
I’ll be your Oprah; I do approve.

Spend day 2 doing you;
jam meaningful music and bust a move.

Life is at hand! Let nothing deter you from “self” remember.
Do your best to forfeit stress; there are only 2 months to November.

Wyclef Jean sang a song referencing the 11th month. Do you remember?
I believe the jam was titled, “Gone ’til November:

It’s going down in November.

Today, let your adulterated cares be under arrest.
and whatever it is that you do today – be childish about stress.

Give it ‘no never mind” and do something fun today,

Up to play, so “oui!!!!” Have you time to be YOUNGISH 2 day?

The following is my a.m. goto aerobics video.
Jump on it and thank God for your agility, yo:

I have been to church via digital stream and I’m feeling A-Okay.
I prayed for the families of  Breonna Taylor and Freddie Gray.

Michael Brown and Amadou Diallo are united marching points.
I do indeed love Janelle Monae‘s “Hell You Talmbout” joint.

I’ve jammed to several other videos that support our evolution point,
but none as devout or as “Greek” as this Praise Team’s anoint.

Good morning dear kinfolk, we are at the Sabbath point again,

Eating less soul food and going for more of “the body move.” It’s so much fun with friends.

‘Go on. Jam Janae’s titled joint again
and loosen up those stiffened bends. 😛

Do THIS when – Jammin’ to Beyonce’s visual album.

It’s Friday good people and the evening is quickly approaching nigh.
Any chance that you got around to making that Disney Plus purchase/buy?

I hope that you did because tonight they will be take center streaming stage
and broadcast the visual album BLACK IS KING by Queen B – Beyonce.

Hey-ey! I’m all hooked-up and ready to see it unfold.
Bey is a Virgo; picky & perfection goal. Behold:

I’m in love with the view.
I’m in love with you.

I love what Beyonce is doing

She has more than thrice paid towards our dues.
She is about unity, love, and the acceptance of me + you.

Her energy is a beaut.’
It’s Friday, y’all. What’cha getting into?

Me? I’m gonna take it easy this eve.
I’ve inhaled work all week – it’s time to breathe.

I’m happy to finally sit down and kick it with thee.
I’m still on the horse and have lost more than 2 lbs x 3.

Actually, I am down a solid 8.6.
It’s all of the lettuce in my mix. 😛

It’s all good.
Though, I’m not out of the “unfit woods.”

Not yet,
but I can bet

you that I will be soon.
I am young on this journey – it’s not even noon.

I’m a goal oriented girl; I chart where I want to go.

We’re sharing it with you; if you’re one of millions in the USA with a curious pallet:

I filled out my mail-in ballot last week and took it to the polling facility and put it into the polling box myself.

I pray that you are able to make your voice heard, as well;
Your vote is your civil way to story tell. Do tell. Do not fail.

Having said as much, I’ve got Sirius XM RockTheBells jamming in the background and,

Good Morning Monday

Evolution is inevitable.

Good morning Monday, I’m so glad that you’re here.
My weekend was fair and yielded my thoughts clear.

The television did reign and sports did re-start;
baseball and basketball delivered with united heart.

It was good to see; team building & professional balling is great
but it doesn’t make a dent of difference against racial hate

or Portland, Oregon’s reality and fate. Their peace is on pause.
If we don’t support them – their issues may be the case of us all.

Music marks great moments; music inspires unity and a call to action.
New music is born for the #BLM, but Portland get’s Michael Jackson:

.

If we are not careful this will be the song across all 50 states.
Thank you Portlanders for pushing-back against hate. It’s not our united fate.

I care about you and what you’re going through.
Change is necessary; MLK did it too.

God bless New York, California, Chicago and other states
that have found that they are bound to jam Michael Jackson today.

It’s comparable to a black person’s historical and present fate.
Do unto others what you would have done unto you — is on the way.

Karma does not play. Stand strong for unity, civility and what you believe.
Tyranny gall will have to fall; protest until tyranny cannot breathe.

A new day yields a new breeze; resume your purpose after prayer.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, if you bent a knee, divine help will always be there.

Books! Books! Books! Have you got any books?
Mary Trump’s book is on backorder. Yes – I took a look,

when I ordered my own.
She’s been observing the Don from youth to grown.
What familial reads hath she literally sewn?
Yes, I confess, I have back-ordered my own.


.

I know that I’m not sly — but I’ve received several books over the COVID19 quarantine,
including Eddie Glaude Jr’s BEGIN AGAIN and W.E. Du Bois’ DARKWATER scenes.

I’ve got my arms full, indeed. I do love to feed my mind.
Today is Friday another “We’re aliveday. Let’s record it a good find.

There won’t be any club dancing tonight, COVID run’s the scene.
There won’t be any house parties either; groups are not a thing.

tracy-morgan_no.gifThis is surely different from everything normal that we know.
The admin said “children should go back to school,” but parent’s are like “No.”

How is that a good idea in the era of COVID19?
Hospitals are full and bursting at the seams.

There is no way that anyone could convince me to risk my children’s lives
behind a dude who was never good in school; who on Pennsylvania Ave resides.

Nope.
No thanks; they’d forgo.

God help us. Are the reliant being lead by the blind?
I keep my head in a book; I do enjoy my mind.

Reading is fundamental and paints reality kind.
Especially when reality is wrapped in COVID one nine.

Do not be in a societal bind — fight back by reading a different talk.
Learn something positive & nourishing –  then let it effect your walk.

Gift your mind a massage and invoke within yourself renewed thought.
‘Strapped with 7 new books that need an earnest look; 7 POV’s I have bought.

waiting on Mary Trump’s book; an important chronicle in my book pool.

Something tell’s me that her uncle is going to lose his cool.

Hibbity Hump Day – Folks it’s Time To Slay

Hey, hey, hey!” Sounding like Rodg’s friend Dwayne,
What’s Happening” with you; how’s the view in your lane?

Me? I’m awake and up for goodgame.
Me? I’m the vehicle in the creative lane.

You? You’ve been on my mind for quite some time now;
different reasons ‘why‘ and dimensions on the ‘how.’

Believe me now, when I say that I’m enjoying the climb
that has delivered me to this day; my creative grind.

I’m happy y’all.
In a world of uncertainty, I have the gall.
I wish happiness for us all.
Flex your positive gall.

It’s Hibbity Hump Day, which sounds a lot like “hibbity hop.”
Saying “hibbity hop” reminds me of The Sugar Hill Gang – Hip Hop don’t stop.

Something like The HUSTLER’S CONVENTION, I’m a one-stop Griot shop.
I’m something like Lightnin’ Rod; The HC is not a publication that you can cop

but you can stay tuned to multiple flows like my own, for most Griotte’s are quite steady.
We are storytellers of the day born. I learned as much from Fab5Freddy.

I forget not, much. I am intrigued by various moves made.
I chronicle the view in rhyme. Griot is my mode of Slay.
Hey.

Hey-hey-hey!” I’m quoting Dwayne Nelson again,
I’m Qui
atop of this hump glad to be purveying and conveying What’s Happening.

It’s a total high day and I’m up for the win.

A Fan of HANNA

.
Season 1 boasts Joel Kinnaman as Erik with Esme Creed-Miles as HANNA; they are running thangs.
Season 2, in the era of Erik AD boasts Mireille Enos as Marissa to bare the brunt of the game.

Hanna-Season1-Cast

There’s a lot of pain in every fight scene; the fight choreography is the shiz-nit.
Hanna stays true to reap no rue; bar none, she’s the epitome of a “soldier’s spirit.”

Amazon Prime is responsible for this series and David Farr is an  amazing series writer.
I’m the woman who ran through seasons 1 and 2; I am the poetic piper
and I like her.

The Hanna series is authentic – the cast chemistry pulls the composition tightly together.
I saw HANNA – the film in 2011 and resisted the idea of a series heaven
then David scripted a triple 7.

Are you watching?
I pray a season 3 is in the works for we; I’m baited for the clocking.

As for the video atop, the ANTI LULLABY piece —
it’s the series’ theme song; a Karen O release.

It’s sweet, it’s deep and plays on repeat; it’s messaging strength is strong.
It conveys emotion and tugs at devotion; perhaps another season will come along?

Are you watching the series that is the film namesake of HANNA?

keeping score and wanting more. I am duly twice a fan of:

I miss Gene Wilder and the original Willy Wonka character. The film debuted in 1971, which happens to be the year that I was born; just a couple of years behind the Summer of ’69 – an era of transcension, vibrations, love, color, wonderment and possibility. Personally, I think today we are in a parallel time to the Summer of 69.

We don’t need to do a massive concert about unity and we don’t need to pass the weed, (well, it probably wouldn’t hurt), we just need to continue to lock arms together for unity across the global community. I understand that life is relentless, yet and still – “collectively, we’ve got this.” Let’s stay fueled up on imagination and determination. It matters. Einstein left word about it and Willy Wonka sang about it. Remember?

Would you be so kind as to you access your imagination lens and view tomorrow with me:

[Lyrics]

Hold your breath
Make a wish
Count to three.
Come with me and you’ll be
in a world of pure imagination.
Take a look and you’ll see
Into your imagination.

We’ll begin with a spin
traveling in the world of my creation
What we’ll see will defy explanation.

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world?
There’s nothing to it.

There is no life I know
to compare with pure imagination
Living there you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be.

If you want to view paradise
simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.
Want to change the world?
There’s nothing to it.

There is no life I know
To compare with pure imagination
Living there you’ll be free
If you truly wish to be.

[End Lyrics]

And this is where I live; in a world of pure imagination.
I’m always glad to have you along to kick inferring conversation.

I appreciate you for stopping by everyday
to hear what lil ol’ Qui has to Griot say.

It’s okay if you choose to share it with a friend or two.
After all networking among friends is what we do.

I am so into you.

I am into us coming together as a whole,

Living in imagination; if I can think itthe idea can be sold.

I’m a writer and creating content is always my goal.
What’s your inner child style? Access him or her to get your gold.

Please don’t let this piece conclude with you hearing: crickets.
Instead: Use your imagination to help manifest your golden ticket.

In the interim, I’m so glad that you stopped by.
May wisdom heeding and a lot of reading always get you by:

Think of life as a pizza and make it like you like it.
Coffee is basically black though Bailey’s will always spike it.

Whatever works for you…

I’m just saying life is at hand please live it out loud.
Appreciate yourself for standing out from the crowd.

You are quite unique and of you, God is quite fond.
You rarely look at what is; you innately look beyond.

Pizza is what you make of it and I’ve been watching you make yours.
I chronicle about you every-other-day; you are quite the combo score.

Thanks for coming through. For your life contributions – I thank you even more,

Good afternoon to thee. Your combo chemistry is not ever a bore. I stand to bear witness to your comprehensive soar.

Your pizza looks good and your coffee is strong.
