Life. I woke up this morning in good spirits and quite chippy
though, my heart is missing a friend; Tarisma’s mom, Nikki.

She crossed over mid-day in good health this week,
as my childhood gf and I were mid-text speak…

Suddenly out of nowhere my chippy girlfriend said,
Qui, I’ve got to go, my mom is now dead.”

I sat still in my seat and the wind did not blow,
I stared at the text, waiting for some admittance of “a joke.”

But it didn’t come.
Ms. Nikki had transcended her energy sum and my girlfriend was numb.
Happy words? At the moment, I had none.

Life. When she is vibrant, we call her a sweetheart,
so I’m also sending out love to the fam of Midwin Charles.

She was a sweetheart on Earth, so she shall be in Heaven.
Attorney Midwin crossed this week at only 47.

She was a Haitain-American and a Defense Counsel whiz.
She was body-stacked, her skin never cracked, and I don’t believe she had kids.

It seemed like she “hopped a ride out of here” with Ms. Nikki.
Both crossed like a boss, in good health and not sickly.
A journey lived so richly…

Life. She is special and herein we are to connect
with feather-like folk – so I dug DMX.

I found his raspy voice to be nifty.
It conveyed wisdom in rhyme – he has checked out at 50.

Life circumstances started out hard for him and only got harder,
he maneuvered this place with a serious face, an alchemist performer.

Always hype at shows and during his PR work
when in reality life was painful and he was often hurt.

I’m going to miss his barking and lyrical indentions.
Hip Hop will miss DMX aka Mr. Eric Simmons.

Life. I GOT IT and I’m so glad that you do, too.
Go forth on this weekend and win-win-win. Do what you need to do.

Life is not a promise, so in all that you do please remain true,
I’m Qui
appreciating you for coming through and comprehending this Griot groove.

May peace, blessings and love be upon you.

WORLD NEWS: Today the Royal Fam is short one soul –
Prince Philip has crossed over at 99-years old.

In love nor in life will the details be all-rosy or all-fair,
so please be mindful of those grieving and send up a boomerang prayer.

Later on, when you need it, it will be there.

The Son has risen.

I woke up this morning with this song in my head
on the calendar date of “Jesus is not dead.” The song said, 

And I reckon the answer to that question is yes.
Today is great because of fate, “the rise of our Fathers best.”

Let a new feeling crest and wash over you.
You don’t need painted eggs in the grassy dew.

Though if you find a few, please do eat well.
Today is a day of dimensional tales.

The kind of day that has the potential to make your eyes swell
once you realize that your life is greater than any fairytale.

Cinderella is a fairytale with a very rough begin,
any chance that you or your issues feel ‘Cinderella kin?

As in ‘life has been no decorated court & ball for you?
Well, today is the perfect day to elevate your purview.

God’s best has risen for you.
Walk in goodnessnot in a glass shoe.

Glass shoes are not flexible; the pain of hard cellophane will be prone.
Walk with God and your bare feet won’t ever feel rigid terrain or stones.

Life can appear stony.
Live in truth and reject phony.

Life is short, there’s no time to live it “not being yourself.”
In such a case, it could go long on detours & depths.

You don’t want that for yourself.
The gift of life is the biggest wealth.

Rich & dead don’t go together.
Life is opportunity; a chance to get better.

Wherever your thoughts are on this day,
I’m thanking God that you even dropped my way.

This word of encouragement is RISEN for you.
You are the egg in this week’s opportunistic dew.

May everything that is good reside inside of you.
Love-on others like you love yourself; it’s the God in you.

Today is Easter Sunday and I woke up with a BIG LOVE feelilng,
I’m Qui
“falling in love even more with life,” because love is so healing.

God was outside of CUP FOODS on the day George Floyd was there.

The country was so divided society wasn’t sure if they cared.

God was looking via the lives of several filming bystanders,

as police forfeited calculating risk to avoid being unlawful chancers.

Strangling a man on the ground with no answers – was troubling for all watching.

Emotions were strong towards the officer’s wrong – and God was “heart-intent clocking.”


It’s what He does.

Guardian Angels divvy way more than love,


they convey scenes that you are in

for the good of God and of those of sin…


because it all belongs to karma in full.

Judgment day will separate the lambs from the bulls.


God was there in Minnesota on the 25th of May

when George Floyd’s civil rights… in the streets did lay


just as one lawman mounted Mr. Floyd’s back, out of vex

and firmly planted his badged knee-into the right side of Floyd’s neck.


The position was held for more than nine minutes.

The situation was so contentious – it was hard to see God in it.


But He was there.

He showed his face through every bystander who cared.


God was there as Mr. Floyd cried out to his deceased Ma.

The PROOF of God will be karmic to the remaining law.


Pain-oozed from the footage that we saw – imagine Mr. Floyd’s family…

May history play-out that there will be no damning of “he.”


He, as in the character of Mr. George Floyd.

Human compassion, mercy, and love is not hard.


Though they were absent on that day that George Floyd stopped by Cup Foods.

Each officer on the scene responded as if in a high-threat mood.


Why is this?

What fruits of the spirit had they all missed?


I am grateful that no bystander caused any additional alarms, but —

God saw it all and now it rests in the hands of karma.


I can’t imagine a human being feeling that their biology is tops,

knowing that they are flesh & blood, and a God — they are not.


It would certainly be a weird thought to have —

one likely fulfilled on the road to breaking bad.


The PROOF of God is not on trial, but it is being showcased,

as the world is captivated by the indicted officer’s murder case.


Every witness that’s broached the stand swore by their right hand,

and testified to the ill-compassions of each law-knighted man.


While we don’t know the outcome of this trial yet,

the will and purpose of God is always a safe bet.


I am betting on God and His inset of karma, too.

Langston Hughes implied that God will see us through.

Mr. Floyd is with his mother now; spirit residual is true.

I’m Qui

Not quite Kim Russo but a believer in God and in PROOF.
