Before the sun breaks half & kisses the horizon
Before dusk returns home
Planting agonies at its backyard
Before the night seals my lips & wraps the city with silence
Before the moon takes me in its lap & sing lullabies to make me sleep
Before the stars returning to dust
Come back & tell me again
For the one last time
That it was all a beautiful lie
The way sun fakes
the presence of moon at light
& leaves it at night

Let the hope in our hearts be your paint,
and dream of a world we can’t yet see.
I will stretch out my hands as bristles for your brush.
I refuse to remain in this grayscale state of mind -
when I know we were made to color outside the lines.
• from “so create”•
Do you ever watch the sunset
And just sit and think about things
Just you and the sky and darkness
Giving your thoughts some wings
Perhaps you've got some troubles
And don't know what to do
Or you just plain need to get away
To spend a little time with you
Sunset beauty makes you feel as though
Your life has meaning after all
To see a sight so extraordinary
Makes you feel capable, strong and tall
It's funny how flashes of color
Like a sunset or sunrise can inspire
It can calm your inner self a bit
It's a scene you can never tire
The serenity gives you a chance
To put things in perspective
Life can be overwhelming at times
And a sunset can be reflective
So when the sky lights up next time
Let your gaze do some drinking
Soak up all the amazing sights
And do some sunset thinking! - Marilyn Lott .

Nos dias terríveis
Traz a formosura na palavra.
Nos dias alegres, multiplica o regozijo,
Fala, escuta, ajuda, e briga se preciso,
Mas nunca cobra. Doa-se de alma.
Amigo, em todo o tempo,
É relevante, precioso, joia rara... É peça única do vital tesouro,
Mas não se mede feito ouro,
Não se mede feito nada.
Amigo é peça da vida
Que a gente encaixa na alma.

Those who sell flowers often don't recognize when their nose gets used to fragrance they think their flowers have lost.
- to those who are kind
I know your kindness is never enough, that's only because beautiful is a small word for the greatness of your being.
I'll not make a difference in your worrisome good deed scrutiny.
I must though tell you, you are all we need if earth is to survive.
Thank you for giving company to lonely people and for sharing your food and income,
for wiping tears that flow desolate and mending broken bones, and growing out of your fears for another human, animal, plant, and for making this place breathable.
For the smile that kept up hopes and the shoulders that offered support.
For listening and for bringing up people's children like they are yours.
For thinking beyond border, loving unconditionally,
being soft, broken, and yet, supportive
For being strong
Thank you for your kindness, kind people.
Lots of love.

201/365 ~ Bismillah to greater things 🌻🌞🌻🌞
Men become heroes when they find me
As if my skull has been cracked open
and brain matter exposed
They don’t see
that I am not weak
but simply garmented
in all that is real
They often confuse
my the scent of authenticity
for the stench of vulnerability
And the sooner they learn the difference,
the sooner they’ll find that the only
ones I need to be saved from
What a relief,
to wander under
You’re in the same universe
and exact lifetime
where I exist
The one abounding with infinite possibilities
including you and I
crossing paths once again...
Loneliness is a leech, walking around in broad daylight
wearing love’s skin
************************************************************Do you go to the bath for the cleansing or the solitude?
For the noise to drown out your cries
like that of a soldier with war cuts
these reminders crawling through your skin
even when the hurt has been mummified
tightly to its origin
Like a moth to a flame
You’ll find that,
whatever poison you ingest
is but a feather to a rock
take a lot out of a fledgling
Or they simply rob us of everything
A few return to the world
with healed parts
While the rest wander around
in pieces unrestored
The catacombs of the living,
that’s where they go
buried under a nameless headstone
For some of us,
who may not yet be dead
but might as well be...
