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.

Humping A Good Time

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on December 27, 2017 at 12:04 pm

late-to-riseToday I’m up slow.
I’ve enjoyed a long weekend, yo.
I’ve enjoyed my family that visited from out of town.
They’re here for a few more minutes until they’re flight bound.

They’ve got to get back to Texas.
I thank God for the wings of AA that connect us.

And now it’s back to school and work.
I checked my student email to info-flirt
and found therein, new news
on January 4th – I’ve an assignment due.

Do what? Are they serious? It’s true, the task of learning never quits.
I ain’t mad and there will be no assignment gaps. School? I really love it.

I hope the holidays were good for you. I hope that new love has been birthed.
I had a blast! Laser tag with the fam was a gas and a great way to burn girth.

What did you do during your Christmas break? Did you wear yourself out?
Did you eat, live carefree and have to let your britches out?

I did all of the above.
I hugged, laughed, gave & received lots of love.

It was a good time had.
I’ll hit the gym to deflate the abs.

I’ll curb my diet from the festive eats.
I’ll re-ease the tension where my button and clasp meet.

It’s Hump Day baby and we are midway through the last week of the year,
I’m Qui
Humping a good time with thee. For anytime we meet yields me cheer.

The Difference

Let’s go over some things, let’s sew up last weeks dew.
We’re going to hit a couple of headlines – ok, maybe a few.

We found out Wilbur Ross didn’t cross his heart on not lying
or his little faux pas of being mega rich would have rendered him dying.

He isn’t dead. That whole over-inflated financial worth
was nothing more than the weight of gas per his overzealous girth.

Since then, he has re-iterated his million are far less thwarted.
Doing so calmed the DOJ’s brow — basically Wilbur farted.

Under pressure, he released the truth and now we know
he padded his finance bottom line to hype-up his hedge fund show.

What about Papadopolous? Was he administration fortified or just the skim?
I have no idea of his rhyme, reason or will. We’ve been seeing less of him.

What about this Russia thing? Perhaps it isn’t the headline of the mayhem flyer.
I mean, Frederica Wilson and I are still in the dark about what happened in Niger.

As it pertains to LaDavid Johnson and Myeshia, his lovely widow:
The FBI has yielded no investigation report, but the Washington Post did. Yo?

brotherly-love-he-aint-heavy.JPGWhat is that about? Furthermore what was periodically printed and duly read – – –
is that LaDavid was bound (hands in front) and shot in the back of the head.

Via newspaper reporting is how the Gold Star widow Myeshia Johnson leanred of such.
LaDavid Johnson was a Sargent in the United States military. Where’s the brotherly love?

We’re just catching up. I wanted to make sure that you knew
that we’re keeping up with the headlines. Well at least a few.

Other than that, the day is anew and we are all charged to be positive chancers.
Let us go out in the name of humanity and administer love. It’s the total answer.

You are surrounded by politics and bad news, but politics and bad news are not you.
Stay abreast of nuclear news and divisive views then equivocally refuse.

Good energy is trying to surge in the face of mayhems dew,
I’m Qui
Moistened by the good in multiple hoods; that is the residual of me and you.

We are

the difference.

Tuned-In to Thursday

Mindful Living

Good morning sweetheart. Good morning to you.
You’ve certainly crossed my mind a time or two.

So much so, that I’m hitting you up
to say “I missed your touch on yesterdays hump.”

img_7352-1

Let’s hug, cheek-kiss and do the bump.
I’m pretty hype this morning – up shaking my rump.

I’m doing aerobics in the cut, the week has been good.
To write is my testimony. I’m telling it in your hood.

I appreciate you for taking the time to stop by and read it.
And if you’re living mindful– I’m extolled that you’d heed it.

As you live mindful on all fronts, your actions will “seed it.”
The hungry eat what you serve. Go ahead and feed it.

Shovel out the love, the compassion and understanding that you have.
If bold should test you – it could never arrest you,
so remain positive and laugh.

Tuned-In to Thursday leads way to be thoughtful.
To miss an opportunity to think of someone else should feel awful.

Perhaps your response to me would be, “Folks aren’t thoughtful on my behalf!”
I’d respond, “Change starts with you, look through those folks and just laugh.”

You have to — that is if you want to realize your God-truths.
The God in you does not lie in treating others as they treat you.

Think it through on this Thursday. Mindful thinking, do tune in.
You’ll find you are your biggest hurdle and likewise, your biggest friend.

Resist all low frequencies. Resist the urge to pile on.
I’m Qui
Tuned-In to Thursday and praying you to be strong.

Respecting others despite their actions – on no level, is wrong.
Give it whirl. It may be rough – persevere. I believe it can catch on.

Hump This…

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on May 3, 2017 at 8:31 am

april2017-blonde-quiThis morning I woke up and I was happy about that.
I have a meeting at 10 that will equal a win and I am happy about that.

Lunch time will find me with a latte in hand, sitting on the patio where I now stand,
Mingling in good company with folks that I love; thanking my stars and my God up above.

I’m Humpin HAPPY over here – I’m so glad to be in good health.
I’llness sought me out, but my vitamin regimen helped keep me stealth.

I could use more physical activity in my life but there just aren’t enough hours in a day.
I walk about 30-minutes daily  then add on 30-minutes of elliptical play.

Hip! Hip! Hooray! I’m open to dancing and considering indoor hiking.
My mind is open and my body is hoping the opportunity will yield to its liking.

You see, I’m not an athlete, I’m a writer, a chic with a camera and tripod.
My nails may not be acrylic’d out nor is the gym etched in my bod. lol!

I’m a pretty active chic – I’m always on the go and hauling equipment with.
I usually show up to film the show, hi-5 the talent and throw in a few cool quips.

I’m the chic enjoying her day for everything that it is and everything that it is not.
I’m Qui
Staying inside for most of the day, because ol’ Phoenix is pretty hot.

Regardless of the outside temps- I’m Humpin HAPPY over here!
I bid you good energy that you’ll need for that #WIN that’s near.

march2017-maroon-quiMmmm. Good Morning Monday! How are you doing today?
Sure I’ve got a bit of work, but we’ll find time to play.

The weekend was long, it made me strong; I covered quite a few miles.
Today comes with ease and a warm breeze. Today I’ll focus on “the smile.”

Come sit with me a while.  I am taking it easy indeed.
I’ve got family, love and favor from the Man above… it feels good to be Qui.

Ooo wee, and then there’s “thee.” I did miss you so.
Tell me whatcha been up to, the destinations of your to and fro.

How’s life treating you today and what have you got planned for tomorrow?
I’m brimming with sunshine, and drunk off life, like it’s wine –
If need be, I’ve got energy you can borrow.

Hey-ey! Good Morning Monday. I had missed you baby,

Sex Appeal is real

Confession is Qui

I saw a 2017 Tesla flipping suicide doors…
I stood at attention; I want to know more.

I’m turned on by gadgets and learning things that I do not know.
Thus I admit I’m turned on by Tesla’s entrance and exit m.o.

Sex Appeal is real, yo! It can be quite consuming.
I always get a nipple perk when Spring is close and flowers are blooming.

Spring is closer today than it was in December
and the botany blooms at Costco are prettier than I remember.

IMG_5179.JPG

More exotic for sure.
Spring may be a cure.

Surely she’ll bring something fresh.
Anything less ORANGE toned… would be best.

I confess I’m an easy turn on – it doesn’t take much.
I’m into love, hugs, encouragement and human touch.

Sex Appeal is real and is rarely out too far.
One way to start the party up, unveil some new art.

I approach each hump like I’m smart, I analyze and then I play,
I’m Qui
Turned on with ease as Sex Appeal is real on this HumpDay.

I’m yielding and I’m receiving.
Vibes of appeal trump seething.

Christmas Countdown

In Communication, Griot, Self Improvement on December 23, 2016 at 5:54 am

rudolf-elf-christmasGood Lord it’s Friday already and my week has been super sweet
I’ve shopped with the masses and sipped latte molasses –
no doubt picking up calories.

There’s love in every breeze, I can feel it and with specific reason.
Phoenix lacks cold weather and snow but are clear on the WHYS of the season.

The weather has been mild, I feel like I’m on an island
but I’m here in the US in the good ol’ Southwest
and the weather’s so pleasant – we’re wielding!

No boots, no hats, no gloves nor a winter chill to speak of
just a lot of sunshine and gift buyers on-their-grind
who are quick to yield chivalrous love.

I’m done with my shopping — like I’ve said before, and I’m nearly done with my gift wrapping.
I’ve got a cute red bag to hide my gift stash and stocking stuffers? I’m deep and tall stacking.

Christmas Day is Sunday — Yes! And in just a couple of days and I can truly say
that I can’t think of a better way that I’d like to celebrate a beloved Sabbath day.

In the event that I don’t see you on Sunday DO please hear this:
I love you, wanna’ hug you, consider this season to be a “W,”
God is good and

happy-thanksgiving-2016[NFL dibs]: The WIN goes to the COWBOYS again. #TheyDidIt.
Moms visited, dinner was gifted; tabled contents — we did #RidIt.

Are you still feeling thankful? I am. May the feeling remain.
There was a lot of food, I long chewed – therefore I carry no shame.

Are you still feeling thankful? Did you pack left overs for lunch?
I think the left overs we’ve taken up will go-on-to feed us a bunch.

We had sweet potato pie from Texas to go with the crumb apple and the pecan.dedric-overstuffed
Mom made the sweet potato pie and Cracker Barrel produced the last two pawns.

We ate most of dinners sum and then I worked out like I was in training.
The weather was perfect, good love was erect and the clouds pulled no raining.

Weight? I’m not into gaining, we had a party, a real rumba!
Friday morning will find me back on my grind: jam blocking ZUMBA.

Back on my grind making good memories and hosting good fam.
Back to not watching any type of news or giving a rats sham.

I am both grateful and thankful alike
that I have this artsy outlet of WRITE.

I am both happy and thankful indeed
that life is a gift and love is a seed.

At 6:40pm I have dipped off from the fam for a little literary fun
because I’m happy, I’m full and my COWBOYS WON!!

Congratulations COWBOYS! You are certainly looking better,
I’m Qui
that THANKFUL SHE for life, you and that 10-1 record!

We’re ALL In This Together

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on November 2, 2016 at 6:08 am

we-are-in-this-togetherA new month in a year we met only 11 months ago –
Seems like a lifetime with all of the kicking to and fro.

Politics is the debuting show and it has been known to mood damper.
My neighbors of intellect and fundamental vex are no happy grounded campers.

I had two incidents happen this weekend that truly made me pause –
While shopping at Walmart & Costco I came close to being  a victim to assault.

Both were white females and my only render was a salutation word.
Each snarled before they spoke; their conversation exhibited their last nerve.

A quick and frazzled pitch was emitted from each of them on word one.
I, with a different friend in tow at each store – witnessed their undone.

It’s voting time in Arizona and you know that I’ve already done my part.
Folks aren’t asking but speculating, case basket’ing and falling apart.

I’ve seen this happen before, twice in fact…
But it really doesn’t have to be or feel like that.

Whatever happens post this election, God help us all, we have to deal.
But to lose control of emotions and your soul over politics –yields no appeal.

I still love you, I’m still buying your coffee at a Starbucks.
Don’t let the game drive you insane – resist going nuts.

PRAYthat’s what they say and I personally know that it works!
Politics schmolitics we need no divisive girth.

This is the month of THANKS and at the end of the day I am thankful for YOU.
I’m Qui
Up early with thee to hump day 3 which is squarely after 2. 🤗

Inhale, exhale. Execute Self Improvement and get out of the woods.
Life is a game that must be played, pray up and focus on THE GOOD.

I’m gonna start with:
i-love-you
