Bring Back HOPE

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on August 30, 2019 at 10:17 am

We Can Do It.

Bring it back, bring it back – to every Mr. and every Ms.
Bring Back HOPE and I don’t mean Ms. Hicks.

Speaking of, I hope that she is doing well,
for her former co-worker has rung the quitting bell.

All is well that ends well…
only if there are no secrets to tell.

I’m not interested in any secrets.
Time is of the essence and we need to beat it.

Earth is on fire at our own doing
and the stock market is subject to conflation screwing.

Folks aren’t just standing around waiting for their chips to fall —
we are a wise people and recognize that our systems are full of gall.

Don’t doze off to sleep now. This is the very minute to be awake.
The future of the planet needs us. If we fail to heed, we’ll surely bake.

Don’t let a greedy man burn your land for greedy cash;
yielding our world to cancer and turning our air filters into ash.

I arose this morning feeling pretty stoked
that regardless of what we’ve all heard… there is HOPE.

And it’s back with a fever-pitched passion.
Be excited that HOPE hasn’t gone out of fashion.

Meditate on the good and all that is well.
Meditate on knowing your destination is not hell.

Meditate on being a part of Earth’s solution.
Stay focused and prayerful; don’t yield to confusion.

Don’t bang your head against the wall, you’ll get a contusion.
Stand strong in HOPE. Bring her inside of our evolution.

We need a long-term solution to an issue that is pushing humanity to a brink,
I’m Qui
Good morning sweetheart, Bring Back HOPE and Be PROACTIVE. What do you think?

We Can Do It.

CALL IT…

How do you want your life story to go?
What reflections do you pray that it shows?

Haven’t given it much thought? Well, you should.
Our Fore Fathers weren’t “average folk” in their hood —

they fashioned their stories to encompass the good
that they previsualized; providing the future would…

recycle_green-logo.gifCycle. Understand. Embrace. Grow.
Recycle. ReUnderstand. ReEmbrace. ReGrow.

That’s just how life goes.

Educate thyself and chart productivity in your life.
CALL IT once – call it twice. Still no results? Call it thrice.

Remember that old saying, “If at first, you don’t succeed…”
then try a second time or three.

Okay, the last part of the saying – I totally paraphrased.
The point is that you should try again at every opportunistic day.

Do not give up on you or your life’s haul.
Don’t know your purpose? Boo, it is yours to call.

CALL IT.
Don’t hide behind circumstances that stall it.

How do you want your life story to go?
Take a minute to think before heading to and fro.

Previsualize what you’d like to accomplish in the end –
then meditate and pray for guidance to manifest your intend.

God is with you – so don’t worry Boo,
you can’t go wrong in seeking the purpose of you.

The day is young and life is in you – what are you going to do?
I’m Qui
Appreciating thee for your purpose in rolling through.

May blessings reign. To stressing: please stall it.
Life is at hand, don’t live it bland
how do you want it to go? CALL IT.

Monday, Monday

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement, Video on April 8, 2019 at 6:29 am

Monday, Monday you must be a fun day.
I need you to be you  — o’ beloved follower of Sunday.

I’m leaning like Franky and clearing my throat to sing
‘Luck be a Monday’ – she likes me… I think.

.

If I were D’Angelo then Monday would be
that thing that I sing about — Monday’s are key:

.

Let’s rise up early and play wildly in the bed.
Before getting to work let our inner child be fed.

Monday, Monday be a fun day — for work will find us soon.
Even Kirstjen Nielson insists on fun; she’ll be packing her office by noon.

I don’t blame her. She is just like you, me, and John Kelly;
she just wants to be on the playground with her mind sound by 3.

early-morning-pajama_Qui

Start early…

Don’t ever let the day get too late…
Do not pass Monday without a little play.

Hip-hip-hooray to KJ. heart-thumbnail ‘I always knew that you could do better.
Go on home and relax your bones, take off that binding sweater.

Find the chocolate and the vodka…and figure a cocktail out.’
Me? I’m up early feeling girly, about to get dressed and move about.

I’m meeting with productive friends – we think tank over cups of joe.
We also pray, take time to play, and encourage folk on their to and fro.

I’m happy today and before I get out of bed
I want my Monday to be a lady… I’ve got a melody in my head.

Monday fun day, I know you to be sweet,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee, I’ll take the joe and forfeit the tea.

Good Morning Monday

Be inspired today. You can handle it: https://youtu.be/P8kgbpR1fSc

Ooo child, where have you been?
Everyday of the week tried to spike & peak
in headline news with a funky spin.

Empty headlines and fruitless grapevines serve the people none.
I used the weekend to ‘life sweeten;’ I insist on having more fun.

Please tell me that you, too are getting some, dear Monday?
You are a leader not a tweeter; you’re an opportunistic fun-day.

I’m up early and eager to participate
in what it is that you intend to give weigh to –
I’m awake and ready to play.

Good Morning Monday, what do you say?
Will we have another gumbo of headline news today?

Will more comparisons to Nixon creep up that will make the prez sick?
With hands the size of a normal man, the prez still resembles Tricky Dick.

Good Morning Monday, I love the essence of your day.
I am grateful for all who survived the shooting in Santa Fe.

Another high school shooting has come to pass; this time in Texas.
There are no interests in making sensible gun laws that connect us.

Monday Morning, you remain in the column of good.
Let those of us who pray, do so in the American hood

for clarity and protection.
Compassion for others may be the connection.

Though, if we don’t change gun laws more adolescent lives are doomed to be lost.
Perhaps gun violence keeps rising because many haven’t personally felt the cost.

PICTURE - framingIf this is true,
don’t let the next bullet hit you.

Whoever it is among us, blindly championing for guns,
let him heal himself when all that he has is full of holes and undone.

It has nothing to do with sin, they’re likely just an NRA friend – they’ll be fine.
But you and I have got to get our kids out of harms way and off of the front lines.

Monday, let’s start this day
realizing that we can’t continue this way.

Monday, let us start this day
with us holding hands in unison to pray.

What do you say, Monday? I’m happy to testify first.
With so much funkiness in the world, I believe it’s prayer that we thirst.

Good morning sweetheart, you’re the first; I love the strength of your shoulders,
I’m Qui
On the infrastructure of WE; Monday bares the strength of a thousand boulders.

WE can handle it.

It’s coming from the top

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics on October 23, 2017 at 7:18 am
simpsons-roll-downhill

Rolling downhill…

From the head to the tail; the top to the bottom
When it came to the brightest minds – Washington, DC got ’em.

That was then
before the 2016 WH win.

Citizens were trolling the streets and facebook alike
sporting bumper stickers and memes to VOTE for a lie.

The citizens who voted for Drumpf [Trump]
stand up and get off of your rump,

Proudly raise your hands so that we can all be reminded
the crap that we’re in — you voted for and co-signed it.

You got behind it: the lies and daily disgust —
and said “emails were certain hell;” its Drumpf or bust!

All credit goes to you ‘hand raiser.’ Remember you were happy to shout it!
The man in the WH is not well at all. What are you going to do about it?

I’m asking you because he has no idea how to run the Government, how to console Gold Star families or cut one tax.
He’s in there picking his nose and stretching his throat, not governing but taking twitter to task.

I digress and pass on painting a bigger picture. T’is not my favorite.
Though my heart is still broken for the widow of Sgt. LaDavid.

myeshia-johnson-says-goobye

Sgt. LaDavid Johnsons widow Myeshia Johnson

LaDavid Johnson’s wife, Myeshia is pregnant, heart broken and comprehension sour
She just has questions about LaDavid having been missing for 48-hours.

His body returned home, inside of a closed casket.
Myeshia wanted to see him, but got no answer when she asked it.

It’s unfortunate that this soldier’s family is on blast like that
and it doesn’t help that the prez is divisive and that the Johnsons are black.

It’s just not a good look. It looks like disrespect on one side.
It looks like Myeshia is a Gold Star family member – LaDavid lost his life.

It’s what it looks like — and she’s carrying new life. I call that “legacy word.”
It looks like she’s going to have a world-of-a-story to share with her pending boy or girl.

Fall is in the air
it’s in my hair —
I prefer things to be fairer than they are.

I like life so much,
I’ve calibrated my own touch
I’m #MindfullyLiving and leading the charge.

Are you mindful of what you’re doing everyday? Are you mindful of your life?
Is your mind really strong, can you tell right from wrong? How do you feel about lies?

Ask yourself some basic questions then calibrate, meditate and pray.
I really need your good energy and help to overcome what’s happening today.

The N. Koreans are pissed, the Paris Accord was so yesterday and we are not done shifting lack —
The WH head is ready to put us in the red as he hangs job stability in lieu to cut tax.

Again, Drumpf supporters where are you now?
Are you in the middle class? Lock up the family cow.

cash-cow-dollar-cut-out.jpgIs your milk stored in a 401K, wallstreet or in an account?
Less than $1000 dollars is the average Americans savings amount.

Again, Drumf supporters where are you today?
You removed the bumber stickers from your car? What?! Hey!

I’m not laying in on you – no need to feel ashamed
if you’re ready to get off your hind parts and get back in the game.

The head of the WH is not well and appears quite lame.
He’s making America into something unrecognizable and strange.

Me? I’m just chronicling about it,
I’m Qui
Good morning to thee. Wake-up! Wake-up! I’m trying to shout it.

Pray, Eat, Play – Sunday

sunday

After six days of hump we rest on the seventh.
We pay homage to God; we focus on heaven.

Some do it at the church house some do it via streaming feed.
There are so many venues sewing the divine seed

On Sunday.
If you’re an NFL fan – it’s a bonus fun day.

I’ve got that die-hard blue and silver bleed.
The Dallas Cowboys are my NFL lead.

Rest is tops on my agenda so I won’t get too riled up.
I’ve got a nourishing dinner to cook; a kitchen to smell-up.

I’ll sip proseco as I go to and fro the stove.
I’m cooking pan seared trout, green beans and carrots – no rolls.

I don’t want my dinner guest to leave “on swoll,” — so we’re eating clean.
It’s okay to fish fry and do collard green – but we’re going lean.

Are you in?
My pan seared trout will make you grin.
Make you call grandmama and ask her if we’re kin. 😂

Let’s just kick back and chill in our team jerseys and sip our cups of juice.
Let us celebrate life today and with self, make a new truce

To take advantage of rest at every meet of day seven
To also pray and meditate as to not to miss heaven.

Even if “heaven is a a place on earth, “
Use day 7 to retreat from “the girth.”

Don’t look lost. You know your girth.
I’m Qui
Enjoying the Sabbath with thee making new memories – for all that it’s worth.

Good morning, beautiful. Good morning, good morning, good morning!
Wipe the cold from your eyes and be strong in your stretch and yawning.

Stand erect and stretch, then bend at the waist and touch your loyal toes.
If you can’t exactly meet them, that’s okay – the effort, is the beneficial gold.

Hang there for a minute, relax your shoulders, arms and fingers.
Relax your head into the move – relax your neck, o’ shower singer.

Breathe in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
After a total of 5-10 seconds, reverse your position of south

Happy to…

and stand up straight again, though slowly, vertebrae-by-vertebra.
Then bring your hands to your chest in a position of pray
And say “Namaste.”

Acknowledge the gratefulness for your body and spirit shortly after your feet hit the floor.
Do it because you deserve it – and especially if you’ve not ever done it before.

Don’t substitute acknowledging your physical body with the energy you generate when you pray.
Oh yes! I’m a praying girl – its big in my world; the religious start of my everyday.

Religious? What in context, does that mean?
That means I do it often at the start of my day – per every new scene.

Aw, you know what I mean. I pray and give thanks – for sure,
then I stretch my body towards the ceiling – then down to the floor.

For my body I am grateful. For me, (without request or beg), it works dutiful.
Therefore, after my stretch, I look in the mirror and say, “Good Morning, Beautiful.”

nomaste

What did you say to yourself this morning? Have you said anything at all?
Consider yourself and thank God for your health, your body is loyal with no stall.

A body stall is not at all what we want. Right?
So I thought I’d share my gratitude chant via this write:

“Thank you my toes, my knees, thighs, hip and my heart.
Thank you my eyes, mouth and brain – that’s so smart.

Thank you to all of my organs that do function in this awesome bod.”
This after: ‘I give thanks for life and all that is good.’ – My prayer to God

Good Morning Beautiful. Good morning – good morning; Im talking to you right now.
Yes you! Who chose to roll through with the supportive boom-pow!

Thank you. I appreciate you. Take your time, read a while; please do stay.
I’m Qui
Grateful for life & the sun and all that we have in common. To your spirit: Namaste.

QE Mag Morning Goodness

decorative-line-divider1

Good morning Sweetheart. How do you feel?
I spent the weekend resting. The number of hours were unreal.

I slept 8 hours each night for the last 3 days.
My dreams were intense. My recollection… a haze.

My body, well rested. I promise to goodness I slept plenty.
I haven’t slept this long and carefree strong – since I was in my 20’s.

I’m grateful, kinfolk. I really am. So much so, that I don’t know what to do.
Life was coming at me like a bullet train, I much prefer this pace with you.

Good morning, You. Did you wake up with a smile?
Did you affirm that you’re good? Reinforce the days mile.

You know I did and early. I like to rise before dawn to have my say.
While the world around me is asleep, I’m up to kneel and meditate
shortly after I pray.

Oh yes. I do both, goodness. I pray, and then I meditate.
The prayer is to give thanks, and I meditate to get my mind straight.

I kind of tune everything out and focus on my breath.
I do it for the love of life, I do it to strengthen my health.

I do it to focus my energy and open up the good flow of channels.
I do it because I want to be level headed as I observe and record annals.

Monday Morning Goodness. I’m so glad that you’re here.
I think this day will display many reasons for us to cheer.

I pray that all will go smooth and love will wash over this place.
I’ll start the process by braving my most loving and compassionate face.

Monday Morning Goodness. Let love be what reigns today,
I’m Qui
Excited about WE and the good that could be if we’d Meditate & Pray.
What do you say?

Good morning.

Set it ON FIRE

In Communication, Griot, News, Politics, Self Improvement on April 17, 2017 at 6:33 am

matches.pngToday is Monday and you all know how I feel–
I’m always on that relative Griot spill.

Today I’m ON IT! Filled with excite and inspire!
I’ve got pends in the bin and I’m ready to Set it ON FIRE!

I’ve got a THINK TANK to commune with to birth a new script write.
I’ve got a toddler on my hands; he’s 69 – cutting up like he’s 5.

I call him my father, my elder, my birthright sire.
My hands are full with “needy bull” and I’m ready to Set it ON FIRE! 🙂

Hey! Whatever it is that needs productive igniting – resist the feeling to say “screw it.”
Hunker down and get a handle on it from the ground… aka set a RESOLVE match to it.

N. Korea’s been acting up, nuke-testing without clear sense.
And who do we think was scared off by the words of Mike Pence?

I don’t think Kim Jong Un is going to stop missile testing anytime soon.
What now? Is the US going to “go at it alone,” Per the Twitter buffoon?

We had a presidential election last year on who we wanted to head up the country, to hire…
The elected came in as if drunk off Ripple and Gin then took years of (country) progress and Set it ON FIRE!

EPA standards have been rolled back and Planned Parenthood funding is divvied to the states.
We’re back to that B.S. — a woman must have the child, even if she is raped.

Sounds like a lot of future welfare cases are about to be made
In a country that was once held “LAND OF THE BRAVE.”

[Current administration conversation]
Don’t abort that baby, Ms. American lady! Are you serious?
Girth it, birth it, seek assistance and be treated like a refugee from Syria.

Policy delirium.

Oh well, still I rise, with wide open eyes and continue to aspire!
When met with a challenge, I raise my standards and Set it ON FIRE!

This piece is not quite a NEWS PERUSE fuse, though there is much to say on the topic.
We’ve got Steve Stephens out willing & killing; Authorities are out to STOP IT.

Dear citizens in Cleveland, keep your eyes peeled and open
There’s a nut on the street and his gun is smokin.’

Nuts work for free, it seems. I’ve seen no signs saying: NUTS FOR HIRE!
I pray for the force of the law to not only catch, but Set Stevens plans ON FIRE.

Today is a new day, in a new week, totally poised for greatness within,

Good Morning to thee, when was the last time you meditated or took a knee bend?

SET the current trends ON FIRE … start to PRAY again!

No Week End here

In Book, Communication, Griot, Networking, News, Self Improvement on March 19, 2017 at 7:18 am

no-weekend.jpgThere’s No Week End here, by any measure.
To work at being strong is absolutely my pleasure.

The last book that I read was a biography and it was depth-rich and information sweet.
It was on Michelle Obama, her family, her Moma…and it added strength to me.

That was Friday.
I woke up to the read; a high day.

The read set off a chain of reactions and awoke desires of stifled fires that I’d forgotten about.
So for the last 3-days I’ve been on “the creative raise” knocking incompleted work out!

There was so much to do sitting on the back burner.
What I didn’t know I read up on- I’m a real quick learner!

And so the Week has had No End for me and I remain merry.
Amidst the upload of good to my soul we lost Chuck Berry.

But don’t worry, before completing the dash ” – ” he made a fine mark.
He rolled right in and rocked folks in and out of sin, still all who knew him ‘fell for’ his heart.

He obviously lived a tad bit smart. If you question – bless your hiney.
Chuck was born in 1926 and crossed over at age 90.

Eventually the human body gets weak, gravity is a “hold-you-down” kin.
Still I rise like Maya Angelou and the skies;  I’ve yielded No Week End.
🤗

Today is a new day and per my usual, I started the day in meditation.
I hope you did what you know to do to keep mental clarity in your relation.

GOT TO —  and as often as possible these days.
Days that I forgo “the meditate” I still kneel to pray.

Pray?
Everyday.

It helps me to feel A-Ok. Never mind prescription anxiety meds,
I’m Qui
Affirming that RULE 1 of No Week End is to always Keep your mind fed!!!

So what was the last book about that you read?
