I dreamt of stars
of roses
before I was sleeping
and as I was waking
I was thinking
of a pitch black sky
full of what they never see
because they say
what they see
visibly
and even name it
once it appears to them
for us

I was picturing a garden
Full of something
So abundant and they don't see it
Because they say
What they see
when they see it
How they see it
As they smell it
But no one knows of it
For us

I stood staring
At my own hands
Making my own words
In my my own way
In my own time
To mix with yours
(and yours)
Overlapping with mine
To give birth to whats ours
As mothers and fathers
Raising generations of speech
For us

I sipped my water
And sat it down
Licked my lips and closed
My eyes
Closed my ears
Adjusted the contrast
And opened my heart
For us

Living our lives
Wishing upon Black stars
And watering translucent roses
surely and deliberately
creating a home
out of poetic dreams & meanings
means we always
have somewhere we come from
and some place to go back to
All for us!!!

ALL MY LOVE, ADMIRATION, and RESPECT- DP2G

we have to prepare ourselves for the helping of each other...to set aside the noise, dismiss the distraction. THANK YOU for saying it.

Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
Twitter is now locking accounts for unusual activity when there is no unusual activity. Apparently if you post to much to soon, it triggers their spider hairs. Never mind that it's (or was) a platform to post information and opinions, now it's just a flat bed from the ghost-of-trump-past. Jack Dorsey/Twitter should be charged with giving trump the media to incite a resurrection against the United States government.
18 family members tested positive for COVID after a holiday party in Pennsylvania, including a one year old baby. YES of course they were white. The mother knew she had "something", but during a world pandemic she didn't think it was COVID. This is insane! They just keep spreading it!
Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
