Keep It Moving

Good morning sweetheart. Allow me to catch you mid-stride
and say “There’s nothing new under the sun,” — not one new vibe.

That is if the above video is indeed a relic truth.
Isn’t that what one 2016 candidate was selling me and you?

I didn’t buy it.
Many did and now many deny it.

Still according to the 1950’s black and white narrative series clip
there was one 2016 candidate who was not shooting from the hip.

Not at all – not at all.
A script from a canceled series was recalled

and now we are living out a show that the networks cut short.
So about our collective position, whilst there be any thwart?

Especially since we know that some shows should never be remade.
Good morning Monday, please Keep It Moving and thank you for the shade.

Good morning sweetheart, I missed you over the last few days.
Were you out and about being compassionate or engaging in misbehave?

We all misbehave from time to time, and hopefully, we all know when to stop.
No one can fool all of the people all of the time – regardless of your status-quo-snot.

Things have long heated up to “hot,” and I’m so glad that I didn’t choose the turtle neck.

Good morning to thee, please continue to be patient whilst Karma does a check.

Keep It Moving

and pray for the man whose trials yield him vex.
It may be his day today, though tomorrow – who is next?

Alas it’s Friday and I’m Going Dancing

Well, that’s too long if it was more than a week since you hit it . You feel me?

I’m going out tonight and I don’t mind scooping you up.
Single or not the time is nigh to exert a calorie gut-bust.

Yes-yes! Under or overdressed, I am heavily into it
if I can get a tutor for my math. Please tell me you can you do it?

How are your Trigonometry skills? How are sine, cosine, and tangent?
I wouldn’t know, Trig is new to my fro – I’m stuck on angling in.

Praying to the Lord that guessing is not a sin – because I realize that I’m chancing.
Like I said, Alas it’s Friday and (Lord) I’m Going Dancing.

Later on this eve, it’s going down, though for now, I’m bright-eyed – yo.
I’ve got a cup of jo, and a Math test via laptop – ready to go.

You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to calculate for a few hours, break – then calculate for another spell,

Alas, I return after several hours of working 230 Algebraic/Trigonometry equations and an additional two tests immediately after that.

I would tell thee exactly:

that I want you to
live your best life, Boo.

I want you to love life and enjoy the view.
That’s exactly what I’m doing and I’m looking at you.

Ooo.
What Do You Want, Boo?
This round is squarely on you.

Where do you want to go and what do you want to do?
Ain’t nobody judging and God’s grace is upon you.
Your faith will get you through.

I WANT YOU to show me your grill.

Now let me ask you, “What do you Want,” B.?
Come on, you can tell me. Spoken clarity is key.
Give it to me.

Tell me and mean it.
2019 is in-play; commit to being it.

Make it good for you,
by being good to those who work with you.

And if good is what you want,
don’t let it be hell that you flaunt.

Karma doesn’t work that way.
Get it together – 2019 is in play.

What Do You Want? Focus on it and activate a plan,

2019 – Come On In Here

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on January 4, 2019 at 2:15 am

gene-wilder_that-goes-wo-sayingGood morning dear readers of intellect and refined comprehending skills.
Thank you for coming through and for digging my Griot flow at your will.

I appreciate you. For real.
Let our united understanding be a big deal.

If you’re waiting on the law to change the tune of our collective song,
I hate to inform you that the wait time may exceed Jesus coming back home —
and child, you don’t want to wait that long.
A united front benefits you and me and it makes our country strong.

So Come On In Here, 2019. I’ve been waiting on you buddy.
Last year was good for me, but I’m hoping that you’ll love me.

Hug me authentically and I’ll hug you back.
Let’s cook up a meal and not a snack.

Understanding, compassion, and unity — bring it back.
Not just in my hood, but across the United States mass.

2019 – Come On In Here and shine!
Besides the late sixties, you’re my favorite nine.
Come On In the HOUSE – everything is fine.

An ill will at Goodwill

In Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement, Video on January 2, 2019 at 5:15 am

Goodwill stores.jpgMonday afternoon I went to Goodwill to find an end Table or a coffee table for a realtor client’s home staging project in Arizona. I walked into the Goodwill store and 2 minutes later I found what I was looking for, a rather large chocolate vinyl ottoman that opens with air hydraulics and had a deep compartment for storage. Get this! It was only $19.99! That’ s my kind of deal. There was a white man about 54 – 57 years old about 5’10” – 5’11”, dark hair & brows, no facial hair, 187 – 193 lbs, and wearing teal blue shirt who was walking rather closely behind me as I looked over the ottoman before I decided to purchase it. Curious as to which ticket color represented the 1/2-OFF sale, I said to a man who was within earshot, “Excuse me. Do you work here?” He said no – then I inquired of him if he knew the sale ticket color. He said ‘no again, but that the sales lady who helped him could tell me.’ He turned in her direction but she was gone. I actually saw her vanish into the rear stockroom doors. I thanked the man and went after the store clerk for assistance. She re-emerged from the stockroom and marked the ottoman as sold and told me to pay at the register and to drive my car to the rear of the store and pick it up. I proceeded.

Once in the rear of the store, it starts to pour down rain. A frail female and a strapping male exit the building carrying my Goodwill treasure. While they were loading it into the SUV that I was driving a white Dodge RAM pulled up behind me.

December31-2018_Goodwill-Stalker.jpgAs soon as the employees put the piece into the SUV the white truck just drove off. The white male driver donated nothing nor did he pick up a purchase. I thought it kind of weird that he waited for them to do the work, which took time – and once they were free to help him, he drove off.  I’m sure it was all caught on the shopping centers surveillance system. I thanked the workers and begin to drive back to my clients home, about 20 minutes away.

5 minutes from my destination a white Dodge Ram gets directly behind me in traffic and makes every turn that I make — with no blinker. I pull into the gated community of my client’s and begin a slow drive through the neighborhood with the white truck community estates gate.jpgfollowing me. I made a quick left w/no blinker and they kept straight. I waited before turning onto the street of the home that I was delivering the piece to. When I made a right onto the street the white Dodge Ram was at the end of the street at the T of the road waiting for me. I pressed the garages door opener before approaching the house and zipped the SUV into my client’s garage.  I was on the phone with my client as I entered the gated community and the two of us watched the white truck sit outside of his home at the stop sign at the end of the street.

I begged my client to not go outside because he had no intentions of calling the cops. After about 15 minutes or so the white truck drove off — very slowly.

What was this about? Why would that man latch onto and follow me – not only through the store but out of the store and onward? My client took pictures of the white truck that followed me to his home and is actively on the lookout for future guests that intend to “surprise.”

I spotted An Ill Will at Goodwill on December 31st.
A white man with covert plans and perhaps an ill-fated thirst.

I don’t know what made me stick out, I was only in Goodwill for 10 minutes – top!
The man was already in the store when I arrived; to stop following me – he would not.

I didn’t catch on to things being odd until I was ready to leave the cut
and went to the rear of Goodwill to get my purchase – suddenly a white truck pulls up.

When the Goodwill employees put the purchase into my ride, the white truck peeled off.
I exited the store in a different direction and still wasn’t “stalker” tipped off.

It wasn’t until I had driven 15 minutes away from the store and miles in a northern direction
that I noticed I had a white Dodge Ram on my tail with clear uninvited intentions.

I continued to use my blinkers until the driver started to tailgate closer.
The driver followed me into a gated community; a neighborly trespasser/poser.

My home-staging realtor client could not believe the moment, but it was easy for me to believe.
I am Black in America and “to always be on the lookout” is a life-long key.

I’m passing this story on to you, and will keep you in the loop should more unfold.
I’m Qui
and I spotted An Ill Will at Goodwill though covered by the blood I still brought home the goal.

Watch your back in 2019 and pray much over your soul.
To live another day is more valuable than gold.

Good Morning Monday

Good Morning Monday. How are you doing?
What hast thou for our collective pursuing?

Perhaps something new, like a infants “coo-cooing,”
or perhaps something stronger, like the jo that you’re brewing?

Me? At the close of 2018, I’d say I’m quite poised for an upgrade to life’s scene.
I’m looking forward to 2019.
Expanding in all ways – always, has always been my thing.

I’m into it.
If you’re into it: WE CAN DO IT.

Let’s grow up and grow out.
Turn up and show out.
Show the youth what unity is about.
Speak encouragement and much less pout.

Whatever you want to do next, do pursue it.
I’m into all that is good in the global hood – Let’s do it.

Good Morning Monday. How are you today?
Let the universe move to our positive sway.

State what you want out of life and be mindful in your take.
Good morning kinfolk. 2018 is closing, are you awake?

Of course, you are.
Let 2019 find you being the star.

let's go.pngRadiate positivity, utilize wisdom and more prayer.
Do unto others as you’d have done unto you; i.e., pack fair.

If it isn’t easy- keep at it. Lean not unto under-handing folks.
Please know that karma is real and deals boomerangs to the throat.

You’ve gotta’ know this. Love will cure all and cease your yawning.
But only if you are awake. Wake up to love and Good Morning.

I don’t have to remind you that Monday marks things anew.
Though I would like to encourage you to enjoy being you.

You have made it to another day and so close to meeting a new year,
I’m Qui
Happy New Years Eve to thee. May 2019 yield you much more cheer.

Don’t forget to celebrate with me throughout the new year. You hear? 🙂

COME UP

come-up.pngClimb atop of this hump and peep the awesome view.
Yesterday I celebrated a special birth and the specific gift of YOU.

I really did and I really do appreciate you.
It’s been 360-days that you’ve supported me with the “come through.”

Yep! I’m into you; thus, as I elevate I am taking you with.
I’m more than a salsa, more like a 7-layer dip.
Me and you, go together like cream & whip.
The storyteller and the comprehender — THIS is our –ish!

Do COME UP if you have not.
Digging me in secret? You little snot.

Come closer, please do. Your energy drives me hot.
Plus a refreshing vantage view is the fabric of my thoughts.

Whether good or naught
It is good to share invigorating thoughts.

Speaking of, did you get some over the holiday?
I pray thee did COME UP in the bedroom and slay!

If you did, good morning and hooray!
If you did not, please cop some today.

Nobody else is reading this – it’s just you and me. Okay?
We are still in a phase of the holidays; you still have today.

For us to collectively COME UP on prosperity is my dream
and my pitching prayer for 2019.

In a few days, a new sur-number will be our scene.
I’m looking forward to more good times. If you know what I mean.

dance-a-jig.gifClimb atop of this hump with me and let’s dance a jig.
If you’re still on vacation, let’s sip a swig.

Child, it’s not too early. We’ve already been over this.
Life is serious most of the year, for the remainder lets exploit a little bliss.

Good morning, kiss-kiss, and sip-sip. We can put an early wink in our coffee.
A little Baileys Irish with chocolate or perhaps jo that tastes like toffee?

COME UP on a new flavor, come on a new routine.
COME UP on what’s good in life; maintain or change the scene.

Me? I’m up early because “the write” dictated my yawn.
I’m Qui
Still enjoying thee at day 360; still UP for your charms.

BRING IT IN!
Let me hold you in my literal arms.

DAYBREAK

“DAYBREAK” – Image was taken by Qui

Darkness feels as if it waxes cold from pole to pole,
but let it not chill the bones of your beloved soul.

Remember to bundle up; remember to take care and be safe.
Know that joy cometh at the first sign of morning; stay tuned for DAYBREAK.

A Merry Christmas is on the way, can I make you a cocktail or two?
You say it’s too early on a Monday? I say, “Child, what’s wrong with you?

The early morns chill was made for a warm ale or cedar brew.
Top of the morning to ye kin, shall I make you a mimosa or two?

Perhaps a simple cup of jo will do?
DAYBREAK is on the horizon, the choice is ours to pick and choose.

This week is yours to win or lose. I’m ISO a “W” for me.
Let DAYBREAK find me in leisure; to smell the roses is key.

When standing in darkness be mindful to pray and self educate
then expect the universe to soon yield you some level of DAYBREAK.

And when it does remember to be a giver, as you enjoy the upwards take.
Remember night is at its darkest just minutes before DAYBREAK.
Okay?

I’m counting on you to remember.
I’m counting on you to make the best of this December.

Enjoy the weather, enjoy the sounds,
enjoy the ambiance and the people around…

Look again and see everything in a new light,
I’m Qui
Good morning DAYBREAK. Now let us meet her @ living our best lives.

Nevermind what happened yesterday and last night.
Let DAYBREAK be the RESET swipe.
Good morning sweetheart. Enjoy the sunshine.
I’m counting on you to give this day new life.

With everything that’s going on in the world, I am still happy about the sum.
Life is good, there’s civilization beyond the woods —
relax and allow the holidays to yield us some fun.

Last night I slept hard and this morning I arose early — then dozed off again.
I’m really enjoying this Christmas Break. I pray this vibe to be slow to end.

Today is Friday, a calendar high-day, my friend
I’ll be inside, but my thoughts will reside in the wind.

My mind is in a Christmas bin. I’ve got a wee bit more of wrapping to do.
Though, before I arise to do any of that – I wanted to check in with you.

What have you got going on, Boo? Are you on a long weekend that will roll you into the year 2019?
Or are you closing shop today, fully expecting to work at some point over the next two weeks?

I pray it’s the former of the two that I speak,
In any case, I bid thee, “a Happy Holiday and Prosperous 2019.”

I’m done with the shopping and am free to kick it with you
though I must admit I haven’t created my Christmas menu.
Have you?

whip-cream-strawberry-chocolate-cupcake.jpgI am feeling a little more frisky than usual in the kitchen,
last night’s grocery list did include whip cream in its mentions.

Yes, I bought it.
Wish me well to utilize; naught it.

Are you up for it? Are you down?
You can still get it when the family is around.

Just find a private place and don’t make a sound.
The feeling is autonomous when the holidays are bound.
Ain’t nothing wrong with 6,9 or the downward dog pound.

Still, grown people often miss it.
If there’s an opportunity under the mistletoe – I want to kiss it.

Kiss me back.
Dear Christmas: Be a meal and not a snack.
Fill me full and let the calories lack.

Intellectual Kinsman: I’m sure that you can feel that.
Dear Santa: Come with a new jib in your bag.

elf-n-wife.jpgI could certainly use that.
When I’m not creating scripts, I’m a hands-on filming cat.

Couple that with my propensity to prosper with gadgety things,
and you’ll have insight into what makes my bell ring.

Alas, the weekend is ours to give and the weekend is ours to take.
I really hope that you relax this weekend for your own sake.

Rest shouldn’t be reserved for Christmas Day.
Getitin this weekend and don’t forget your play.

After such is done I hope to retreat to the kitchen and craft a view
that looks something like a traditional Christmas Day menu.

Are you down to be up? Are you up to be down?
I’m Qui
Still into thee and challenging you to do the downward dog pound.

Because you’re far less stressed when naked yoga abounds.

A Cup of Jo’ to GO…

The benefits of coffee include:

cup-of-jo.gif

It’s a good Wake Me Up!
– if the brew is strong that fills your cup.

An innard stimulator.
If you’re constipated – it’s a regulator.

You can sip it out of a cup
or you can insert it into your butt.

It’s really UP to you.
Coffee is what’s up; wake up – it’s true.

Me? What do I do?
I make a strong brew.

I like to thermos it
for an all-day fresh sip.

phaedra-rhoa-coffee-enema.gifI’m into wellness and internal detox.
I’m into coffee enemas and colonics rocks.

I liken A Cup of Jo to GO to being like Hip-Hop.
Once you get started… why would you stop?

Unless of course, you have the tendency to fill rushed.
Does drinking too much bean makes you a little anxious?

Well, love, you make the call.
I just know Jo yields a GO that is known to kill “the stall.”

So I sip it and I sniff it in between smelling MMJ strains
at the local dispensary located off of Main.

Coffee is dimensionally known to ‘do the dang thang,’
A Cup of Jo To GO helps me to focus, mane.
