Holy fire 🔥🙏🔥

My eyes turn
To the ominous sky
As a plane drops
Out of sight

Wind whips tendrils
Against my face
Swirling thoughts
Fallen from grace

Birds flocking north
On erratic flights
Clouds of smoke
Rain, ashes white

Red is the sun
Blazing a trail of heat
Stamping out life
We desperately need




1 of 250k, again 🌵🌞🌴

Contributing to a multi million dollar event
Without any regrets as the line up represents
“The Weekend” living smug and content
I’ve resigned from pitching, but I’ll spy tents
A little less frequent, but up and coming quick
As the fans predict with their supportive picks

Over 9 days nearly a billion dollars is made in the desert it’s truly amazing and well orchestrated : LA Times 2016 stats

Protests Rage

You had the ability to stifle much of this anger
By simply modifying your nonchalant demeanor
Express a symptom of human compassion and remorse
For ending a life early, in the line of duty, you enforced
Words you so carefully choose with an inexpressive face
Reflects solely on your disgrace and fuels community rage
Break your silence with something worth hearing; a sincere apology
Give the distraught community something else to believe
Or continue to maintain a faultless conscious as protests rage
Across this great and mighty nation where justice can’t assuage

Dealing with the constant abuse

Making up worthless excuses

Day after day choosing to stay

Lacking the courage to walk away


Exploding under the cover of night

Defenseless against a crumpling strike

Past out cold from the solid blows

Awakens to see her children know


Discovering an internal strength

Holding tightly to her treasured faith

Flees with her children from the violence

Seeks shelters and holy spirit for guidance


Struggling a little less each and every day

Finally, beginning to see hope and a way

Satisfied, to sleep at ease through the night

Overwhelmed, by a generous surprise


Inspired by The Reverie Journal – Making Headlines Challenge, which was  to scour the news for inspiration. I decided to go with local news ABC7 Mother in Need and a heart warming story about a homeless mother of three who survived domestic abuse and was given a car with a trunk full of groceries.
