Portraits with Pzazz!

Gray

The land of nowhere

Found tiptoeing

Between

Great heavy shadows

Holding hostage

Fearful what if’s

And the light

Bare naked brightness

Secrets once

Owned in terror

No more

Have power

Release

Peace

Freedom

Life

Very little

Of myself

Have I shared

With you

In fact

I’ve even kept

Myself from myself

Some days I’ve

Felt so betrayed

So overlooked

But,

My thought’s

Have been terribly misinformed

Thinking I should be seen

When I’ve barely shone

What light

Did I give

You to follow?

You can’t behold

A woman

Who’s dimmed

Her spirit

To obscure dusk

Naturally,

She’s nowhere

To be found

You will tell everyone

How you prayed

And how I answered

Love,

God

Good morning sunshine

Up & out & at ’em

And feeling very fine


Behind the Scenes

IMG_8606

I am stepping

Into

The petticoats of my dreams

Sailing away

On winds of the fate

Towards

The lands

Where I truly belong


La Vie En Rose

Her

The One

Whom his heart holds

That would be

Me!

Portraits with Pzazz!

Every story

I’ve ever lived

Recorded by my

Beating heart

Speaks no language

Man can decode

Unless he looks

Into my eyes

Those windows

To the pages

Of my soul

It would take

His lifetime

And then some

To read

Carefully

Through them all

Got a smile on my face

A twinkle in my soul

A little swag in my stride

Faith in new beginnings

Working out

In favor

Of my destiny


Portraits with Pzazz!

I rolled up 

On my goals

Like what’s up?

That’s what’s up

Making my life happen 


Portraits with Pzazz!

Art

Is my language

Running

Through my veins

Dripping

Off my fingertips

Born

To create

By my creator

Beauty

So many forms

Beholden

I am the beholder

I’m gonna love you

Love you like never before

Straight outta my heart

Throw back my head

Kick up my heels

Laugh from the bottom of my soul

Fully love living this life

Free


Behind the Scenes

I was born
With the stars
In my eyes
A million dollar baby
Even if
No one realized it
I knew it
The stars knew it
My future knows it


Portraits with Pzazz!

And the beat goes on
Pulsating through my soul
Pushing me
Driving me
Forward into
Places I never imagined
I would be able to go


NYC Streets

Out for a Walk

Out for a Walk

Come
I will walk
Beside you
All the way
Through
Don’t give up
Don’t give in
Discomfort is deceit
We will take
One step
Of progress
At a time


Portraits with Pzazz!

IMG_0061On my A game

Switching things up
Making moves
Smooth & sharp
Success is the groove
I’m feeling

“You can’t separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freeedom.” – Malcolm X


NYC Streets

Nobody thinks to ask
These old walls
What they have seen
Or what they know
Of storms weathered
And survived
Proud memories
Only history can tell
Maybe someday too soon
These bricks
Once so carefully laid
Will carelessly
Be torn down
Modern progress
Wiping away
All these walls
Have sheltered
Love & violence
Tears & laughter
Stories –
Way too many to tell
But these walls
Can’t talk anyway
And if they could
Nobody would think to ask


NYC Streets

City lights
Each one
One soul’s story
Life
Won or lost
Illuminate
Extinguish
Destiny turns
On a dime
Wrap the Day


NYC Streets

Creeping
Down the middle track
Ghastly floodlights
Chasing scrappy rats
Snippets
Of zombie passengers
Flicker
Between gaps in grime layered walls
Grinding
Screechy sci-fi

Underground


Portraits with Pzazz!

Stripes are in
Brooklyn’s dope
Strike a pose
Let’s get to it


Portraits with Pzazz!

Hard cement
Rough
Hot under feet
Pressure
Street’s gonna take grit
Stubborn
Bold ambition
Success
Shoot one frame
At a time
Hustle

NYC Streets

Bubbles
Glimmering beads
Cascading everywhere
Droplets of hope
Shimmering
Playfully splash
Every one
Molecules of dreams
Delightful future

Upside down

Yet right side up

Going left

Heading right

Back

One way

Is the only way
