National Poetry Writing Month 2011! (Check Daily)

Peace. Last year, I participated in the National Poetry Writing Month (conveniently known as NaPoWriMo) due to inspiration from talented poet Derrick Weston Brown, a poet-in-residence at Busboy and Poets in DC. I’m nobody’s poet but I do try to get creative when I can.  It is such a departure from  my usual work. I hope you enjoy.  I will list my poems below daily. Continue reading

National Poetry Writing Month *check daily*

Peace. Thanks to the excellent poet-in-residence Derrick Weston Brown of Busboy and Poets, I have foolishly decided to try this Poem-A-Day deal.  Be sure to also check out the NaPoWriMo website and all the other wonderful poets that have joined this great effort. I’m so glad to be a part of it. Now, to be honest, I’m not anyone’s poet. I RHYME MY BUTT OFF THO (lol). Anyway, there will be haiku, rhymes, lyrics, words and all sorts of stuff here  in this space. Keep checking back as I’m going to house them all here. Continue reading

Haikus For You (Or You, Or Even You)

Peace,

I know someone reading these will be vain enough to think these words are about them. Maybe they are, but most likely (especially as good as my life is right now) they’re probably not. Maybe you (or you, or even you) inspired PART of this but you do not hold sway over any part of me. I own my love and I own my path. You are welcome to witness the growth. Continue reading

Dark Quiet Corner

Peace. I occasionally write poetry. This is the latest joint I’ve crafted in a while (that I liked). I hope you can dig it. Continue reading
