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

Studying myself

From a view

Of self-peace


Portraits with Pzazz!

There’s layers to my depths

And depths to my layers

Arrangements of silence, sounds, letters, words

Building, stacking, mounting

One pause, one syllable, one moment at a time

Spinning out from

My soul’s innermost core

Bursting into life

The moment they touch air

Traveling through galaxies

Beyond the universe

Beyond time

You will tell everyone

How you prayed

And how I answered

Love,

God

Look!

You see?

When you serve me

I will put you in places

You could not otherwise go

I will place you

In palaces you can’t afford

One day it became

Crystal clear

In the split

Of a split second

My heart spoke

My purpose

God’s destiny

For what I am to be

Good morning sunshine

Up & out & at ’em

And feeling very fine

Des yeux qui font baisser les miens, Un rire qui se perd sur sa bouche, Voila le portrait sans retouche, De l’homme auquel j’appartiens.

Quand il me prend dans ses bras, Il me parle tous bas, Je vois la vie en rose.

Il me dit des mots d’amour, Des mots de tous les jours, Et ca me fait quelque chose.

Il est entre dans mon coeur, Une part de bonheur, Dont je connais la couse.

-Edith Piaf

My little girl dreams

Are still cherished

By my woman’s heart

One day

Very soon

I know

They will be

My reality

And then the day came

When I stopped

I stopped

Dancing for a song

That never paid me dignity

And on that day

I said

I am significant

Then I reached out

And I took it

I took my worth

I took my grace

I took my respectability

I wrote my own song

This song

I can dance to

Proud

“Who will buy this wonderful morning?  Such a sky you never did see!…  Who will buy my sweet red roses?…  Who will tie it up with a ribbon, and put it in a box for me?” – Oliver


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


La Vie En Rose

You had my heart

From jump

‘Cause that’s what it did

When we met

It went jump

Love at first sight

Always sounded

Like a fairyfable

Then you arrived

I learned

It wasn’t make-believe

You were real

If I could bottle timeI’d bottleThe smoothness

Of my young beauty

Fresh on my facade

And only wear

Timely wisdom earned

That comes with

Fine lines

Gray hairs

Sagging breast & butt

Tucked away in my soul

Then again

Hidden inside

There’s be no testimony

Showcase God to the world

Of battles fought

Victories won

Knowledge learned

So instead

I’ll bottle time

Inside my soul & mind

Won’t matter

What the years tell

On my skin

Heart forever young

Then


Behind The Scenes




Portraits with Pzazz!

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

No thank you.

La VIe En Rose

Don’t need you to be perfect

All I need is you to be the perfect man for me

Love me enough

To not want to live without my loving

You be the present & future

The one who makes my heartbeat sing

My smile glow

Secure in knowing you’re for real

No matter which way life goes

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


Gnawing soft insides out
Ulcers of regret
Mourning
Tidal waves of acid to the soul
Desperate despair
Devouring
Famine in the belly
Once gorged with love

 

 


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


Portraits with Pzazz!

IMG_0061On my A game

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