On the Ways of the World

For over two minutes, the moon completely covered the sun, immediately turning day into dusk.

As the sun’s corona peeked through the darkness, I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.

An electric energy filled my body and soul, as the thrill of joy rushed from the depths of my spirit and were released through my vocal chords, producing a shriek from a quiet, solid place. Continue reading “On the Ways of the World”

She IS (A Poem)

Sweet as honey, wrapped in soul, wisdom and truth.

A Black butterfly, with nothing to prove.
