Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Friday Inspiration: We Are Not Alone

We are not alone

God is always there

Regardless if the shelves are full

Or if they are bare

Music: Tenth Avenue North “No Man Is An Island”

I could stand here all day

And let my thoughts wash out to the ocean

The waves would wash their thoughts upon me

We would enjoy our conversation

Our give and take

Revelling in meaningful things

Life would be life 

And I would let the day unfold 

As it was meant to

    At The Corner of Nowhere 

    In the midst of another night 

    Waiting at the corner of nowhere 

    Street lights heighten the anticipation 

    It’s do or die

    No consolation prize

    Is this our opportunity to get away?

    Make that great escape 

    Hashtag #lovewillfindaway

    So I wait 

    And wonder if this is all in my mind

    A daydream gone offline 

    Looking around, it resembles the crossroads where we met

    My Sister Ritu has an open invitation prompt for the month of February with the theme being Love.

    Believe me, I have had a celebrity crush or two or … you get it. Here are a few ❤

    Greta Garbo – After seeing her in “Ninotchka” I was goner, head over heels ❤ and still to this day 😍

    Barbara Eden – “I Dream of Jeannie” Enough said! ❤

    Alicia Keys – She was a judge on “The Voice”, I wished I were on her team…I wish I could sing…oh how I wish I could sing! ❤

    Sheila E. – Just watch her “Glamorous Life” video and it will all make sense ❤

    Joan Jett – She has her own rock band and plays guitar…love at first sight and sound! ❤

     Vanessa Williams – She was the first African American woman to be named Miss American and of course as a young lad I immediately went into crush overload ❤❤❤

    Well there you have it. Some of my crushes over the years and I thank my sister Ritu for getting me all starry eyed again…lol ❤
