I missed you and I want to…

I’d have wished you a Merry Christmas yesterday
but I didn’t want to interrupt your “celebrate.”

I can only imagine that you cooked your best, mingled with fam and ate.
Then you probably worked it off indoors — (the way that you like to play).

And I get it.
I didn’t want to hit you up while you were hitting it.

Did you consume some sweet potato pie?
I did – a small piece or two. I ain’t gone lie.

It was good but it wasn’t Mom’s; hence it didn’t taste the same.
Merry is the season and Jesus is the reason,  (that’s Mary’s son’s name).

Black-Jesus.gifThe calendar pushes us into the “mass shopping” lane.
Shopping isn’t king. Don’t forget Mary’s baby’s name.

Isn’t He why you’re feeling so so merry?
Let Him get those burdens up off ya – DO NOT carry.

You knew that right?
Now dance all day and dance all night.
Believe that all will be alright.
Eat a sugar plum or two from your dreams tonight.

You deserve it.
Not getting enough love? Then serve it.

You serve it so well.
Tell opposing notions to ‘go to hell.’

I know that family can sometimes work on your last nerves.
They too, have refrained from putting your philosophy on the curb.

So it’s mutual

the essence of family.
Amen. Now pass the ham to me.

I love leftovers. Don’t you?
Last nights fragments? We took up a few.
Therefore, “going-in again” is something we’re sure to do.
How about you?

A Happy Holidays is still in order from me to you.
What’s that you say that you’re getting into?

Will you be jitted-up for New Year’s Eve?
states-mmj-legalPerhaps travel a stint and smoke some weed?

Vegas or Cali? Where are you planning on going?
I know cold Colorado does not have your itinerary glowing.

Me? I’m easy like Sunday morning after Christmas.
I’m thinking of you, love and longing for a big hug.

So here I am, beloved. Do bring it in.
Let’s slide to the kitchen for a lemonade & gin.

There’s left over liquor from last weekend.
Let’s, you and I, stay warm; let’s drink the gin.

Let’s flirt but not sin. Can we really?
Let’s act like teenagers; don’t give AF and be silly.

Give yourself the gift of life
And bury routine, mundanity and strife.

Are you in?
If so, raise your cup of jo’ or gin.

I toast to thee: A loving and prosperous end-of-the-year.
I’m Qui
and I’ve missed you. Please let these words kiss you, o’ dear.

FOR THE LONG RUN

Dear Friend: If I gave you my word, even if only you heard: I still mean it.
If to my spirit you are true, I’ll be the same to you.
Your status as a beloved: I deem it.

In the event that we seal a bond: DNA or ideology sum –
as long as it’s right with the Lord, I’m in it FOR THE LONG RUN.

You can count on me. I mean it, hun.’
If I said I’ve got your back: I’m in it
FOR THE LONG RUN.

Whether we agree or not all of the time – is not an issue.
I guarantee that if it wells up your soul, I’ll spring the tissue because I’m IN IT with you.

I’m loyal
to the soil.

Like ashes-to-ashes and dust-to-dust,
I’m in it FOR THE LONG RUN and in God I trust.

My game is partly metaphysical; I hover but don’t thrust.
Wisdom manages my time and I’m rarely in a rush.

Life is a gift and it’s not to be taken for granted.
If I said, ‘I’m down with you!” please believe that I meant it.

I’m not in a friendship for “the good times,” I want the whole sum.
Friends are precious and very rare treasures,
I’m in it FOR THE LONG RUN.

A good friend never imposes but respects boundaries.
I’m Qui
Always in it FOR THE LONG RUN, it’s woven into my biology.

I don’t tire easily either.

A Twinkle for A Wrinkle

A WRINKLE IN TIME: Meg, (her little brother) Charles Wallace, and Ms. WhatsIt

Pardon me, I didn’t catch your response to that last question of mine.
I was inquiring if you have had a chance to see A WRINKLE IN TIME?

I did, indeed – filled with curiosity and excite.
If fact, I was in the theater last Friday on opening night.

I took it all in; I did not fall asleep.
The film had a consistent and strong moral release.

I read a lot
into that 2-hour slot.

The film’s message encouraged me to hold-on and keep the faith.
It reminded me that The IT is seeking to penetrate my space.

I won’t let it.
As for the film? I won’t forget it.

Of the morals woven into Disney’s tale, I did see this:
To white men in America,’ they sent a message.

Calvin and Dr. Alex Murray

The message was in the loving foundation that shaped and pulled the show through;
it said you can still head up the family heart-thumbnail– they just, may not look like you.’

It also showed us that The IT has no respect of person.
The IT is hate and if it resides in one’s heart, can become a community burden.

The tale showed us that when evolving and growing, change may hurt a little.
This was shown every time Meg would quantum leap – the transit scenes in the middle.

Did you see it? Did you see A WRINKLE IN TIME?
The vibrancy of color was newly on shine.

Wasn’t the brilliance of Ms. WhatsIt’s hair color simply divine?
Did you dig Charles Wallace? He represented innocence, intertwined.

Did you dig Calvin’s role? He journeyed with Charles and Meg.
Did you get that he was looking to belong when The IT got into his head?

We saw his abusive dad, instead of love. He had a family devoid of care.
It was that bit of insight that co-signed why Calvin was there.

Again, the film is about feeling needed, loved and included.
Love and faith can conquer all and rebuild whatever The IT has uprooted.

I loved the film. It was deep, it required me to think and yielded me hope.
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I thought A WRINKLE IN TIME was dope.
