Loving People in Rhythm

Loving People in Rhythm

May, 2018

Mellow out to the amber rays
that melt our hearts with longer days
and sidewalk conversations
Words caress bitterness into forgiveness
as the painting in the sky is ever changing
The cool moon moves in on you
and the clouds just took off on vacation
After the months of heavy rains
tears of loss
colors heal the pain
reminding us like notes dancing in the air
we are in step embraced with their soulful  flair.

The improvisation of melodic expressions
captures our attention
illuminated by the depth of their lessons
connecting with sincere intentions
Retracing steps
adjusting to a new combination
vibrations speak moving hearts
transforming ways
The good news shines from inside here
In just one breath love can change the atmosphere.

Beautiful visions of phenomenal men & women
Children collaborate, communities celebrate
All kinds of flowers
like all different colors of paint
Drawing portraits, painting murals over 50ft
Dance fills the streets
Music blares  with history
the unedited version, complete
Minds brilliant like diamonds on concrete
where the rose forever grows
Summer heat will soon beat beneath our feet
negativity can’t compete
with the  heart of Philly like water ice sweet
Mouths laughing open wide
elders with grandkids by their side
Watering seeds, planting the Word of possibilities
Reaching out to neighbors, cousins & friends
planning  family reunions with soft pretzels in hand.

Sending handwritten letters licked & forever stamped
to social media hashtags
The latest drop or in the mailbox
the message is loud & clear
We are jumping on oversized pages
canvases, billboards & backdrop stages
replacing the blueprints of discrimination
with the fingerprints of our imagination
Indeed, God is making his miracles clear
like an outdoor museum hand in hand
teaching us to create together
Loving People in Rhythm.

Shout out to all the people and places that taught me love….I was placed here purposefully from the Lord above.
