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.


Leaps And Bounds 

There is nothing I want more 

Than to close the distance rapidly 

Free falling into the silence

No parachute, no wings

Building that bridge piece by piece

The flames of this last crusade engulf me

There are moments that I am mere ashes blowing in the wind

But faith always pulls me together 

And God teaches me to fly a little further each day

We continue to grow in this together 

By leaps and bounds

Romantic Tuesday #Loveuary ❤ – I See

When I look at you I see

All the fullness of what love means

And because love cannot truly be defined 

In you I see 

The endless expression of love divine 

You are burgeoning hope in the new morning’s light

You are the rush of overwhelming gratitude that hits me in the silence

When I look at you I see

A man desiring the hours of the day to move slowly 

So I can take advantage of every moment to hold you closer 

In you I see 

A soul full of life 

A thoughtful and and caring heart that shines incredibly 

Every day you amaze me

In you I see


All of who you are

4 Line Stories: What She Didn’t Know


Every time I found myself going through an underpass, total darkness

Whenever the moment placed a sudden heaviness upon my soul

I always knew it was only temporary and light was just around the bend

She didn’t realize just how much her presence was daylight to me, pure daylight

Windy City Feeling The Blues


It all seems a blur

This allure of the night

Not as cold tonight

So walking at a slower pace

Helps the thoughts stay intact a little longer

Wish you were here

Fortune cookie wishes

Downtown is wide awake

A lot of folks trying forget the worker bee mentality

And give themselves some hours of freedom

I walk wearing dreams on my feet

While my think tank is has spilled over capacity

Thinking of you

Windy city blues on a not so cool Friday night

#Loveuary ❤ – Day 7 – Pets

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

Since I grew up with both a dog and cats as pets ( at times at the same time) I know how they can become a best friend and member of the family. They give us plenty of laughs, smiles, sentimental and irritating moments, but we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. ❤

So Damn Captivating

Cheers to you!

In all of your splendor

In sweet surrender I bow graciously

“May I have this dance?”

Your attributes are delectable

So damn captivating

I had to put life on hold

Set aside the layered nonsense

And grasp at something that makes sense


You in all of your fabulous splendor

A prelude to taste of all my dreams

I have punched holes in clouds and reached for stars

By far those actions and conclusions don’t compare at all

You are electricity in the guise of a human being

Shocking my heart into this heart pounding wave of bass beats

So damn captivating

Why do fools fall in love?

Because they simply just let their hearts go

As soon as I saw you

I thanked God for letting me be a fool
