Good Morning Monday. I have missed you so,
I spent the weekend building bridges for future seeds to grow.

I know that you know it matters how your journey starts.
I’m so happy to meet ‘ya, and giddy to greet ‘ya; Day 1 has my heart.

Did you rest well over the last past days or did you remain in space “high day.”
It’s okay if you did, but I slept like a growing kid; all good things stem from GOOD FRIDAY.

Yesterday was EASTER. Did you eat any eggs?
I took mine fried and used the protein to work on my legs.

Watch my cholesterol, instead? I’m doing that too, young grasshopper
It’s just when it comes to whipping up a prize breakfast, I really can’t stop her.

Who is “her?” You ask without a clue.
I often speak in third person. Beloved, I am WHO.

Ooo. Let your humor be resurrected this morn.
I appreciate your presence and I love your digital charm.

Since we’re gathered in this place, let us be productive.
When it comes to temptations let us be reluctant.

I woke up this morning feeling good.
It’s an upgrade from the mundane, “I wish a buster would.”

Monday’s can easily own the plight,

But not this Monday.
This day is already claimed to be a fun day,

And y’all know how I feel about those.
Gamification will rule the day and that’s the way life goes.

Rise up this morning and ditch your woes.
Its a blessing to have the activity of your limbs and feel your toes.

Wiggle them
and then look to the heavens and thank Him.

So many will not wake up to see you Monday.
So many did not rise on Easter Sunday…

But you and I did.
Let not the goodness of life be hid,

DO YOUR THANG today. Let love propel the way
I’m Qui
Monday: I love thee, and I’m glad to see you today.

Today is poised to be good
in every country, in every hood.

Good morning feelgood feeling. Please make yourself at home.
I’ve got yesterdays Supreme Justice Confirmation at the front of my dome.

Congratulations, Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown-Jackson.
I’ve been waiting all of my life to see a woman like you in action.

This was no easy achievement, Senator Corey Booker reminded us of that.
I think the world of you, brown girl, and I’m proud to have your back.

Someone asked me ‘why was I happy, and what does it mean to me
for a Black woman to be on the Supreme Court? It’s not like she’ll judge a case for me.’

First of all, I have not ever been to court in any kind of situation
that would cause me to be “judged upon” – so they missed me with that relation.

Though, just to be clear and I do want to be
I rooted for Justice Jackson because she represents me.

I look at her face and I see my own.
We are a product of our ancestors and the love that they’ve sown

into this good soil, that is the U.S. of A.
Perhaps when she dissents I’ll feel comforted by the weigh.

I am indeed happy today and I hope to celebrate with you.
‘Another reason to toast some good H2o and jam’ a little ICE CUBE:

Yay-yay! Do Your Thang fami-lay and Justices alike,
I’m Qui
Glad to be here to see, witness, chronicle, and Griot write.
