Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came rolling in right after Harvey.

Uncle Corey insisted that he hunker down in Key West.
Most of the other fam went on the lam — but Unc was up for the test.

I haven’t heard of his status yet. I’m still praying for a rain thwart & stall.
To the McIntosh fam that is my connective clan: please send a text or call.

The weather in Arizona is on ‘beautiful ball.’
Sky – clear, sun – out and the birds are on ‘call.’

To those on the south coasts: I’m praying for y’all.
And after y’all hear from Uncle Corey send us a text or call.

I have a little sister in Houston that survived Harvey’s brut.
The pics she posted online revealed the saddest truth,

Her home is flooded and looks interior destroyed.
The love remains minus the clothes, furniture and toys.

She has two teen children – and within the two is a vast capacity of love.
I saw instagram vids of the shelter and her kids – they brought with them ‘the fun.’

Their high spirits glowed through the video bytes.
Their socio-economics were disrupted but their high spirits buffed it–
They’re up for the challenge of rebuilding their lives. 👍🏾

Good morning and good Lordy,
Irma came in hot and co-signed Harvey

to convey a message that Earth is unhappy.
Her land is carelessly sheared; her forests are assets – not a beard
and her waters are litter-nappy.


The gasoline and coal that we’ve burned…
Earth is speaking. Will you listen and learn?

Is it too much of an inconvenience to consider the fact
That we’re living a bit excessive? Must we eat all of the fat?

I had a car accident about  a month ago
and figured it may be time to upgrade the car, yo.

But then I started questioning, ‘Where am I driving to?
I work from home; less fro and more “to.” 🤗

Then I started adding up the good of a new car, for me:
I came up with shiny paint, minus my down payment bank and transit compliments of “Oui.”

Hmph. That isn’t enough for me. Incentive remains to bite the “new car challenge.”
And don’t go giving me that mumbo-jumbo about “better miles per gallon

conversation.
I am not driving across the nation.😆

In fact, as of late I’ve been walking a lot more,
enjoying nature and reaching my FitBIT score.

I’m also looking at the trees, the grass and the cars that pass by,
and I’m thinking “Lord bless the speedy travelers.” I’m guilty too – I shan’t lie.

Do I really NEED a new car?

Ever so consciously I awoke and arose today
while the rain whips the south coasts out of shape…

On another note

Beasley is Cold!

What about the NFL game last night?
Dak, Whitten, Williams and Elliot set it off right.

They brought an Irma’esque storm
That sounded a giants alarm.

I don’t think Dak wanted another repeat
of last years NY Giants double meet & defeat.

Last night the Cowboys did ‘the dang thang’
and shared with the Giants a lil bit of hurricane.

Watching the game was a great way to pass the time
when reality and chaos was hard on my mind.

After a full inhale of plays and a satisfying slow release
I realized Dem Boys came to play. Godspeed on being BEAST‼️

I’m happy today for life, love and those that hurricane survive,
I’m Qui
Loving the A-Z because amidst troubled skies she has the best sunrise.

Give the creator thanks if you were able to wake up and open your eyes.
Yes, YOU!
💋
