A Sad Good Bye

People come in and out of lives for many reasons. When they are here we should appreciate the time they stayed and learn from the lesson they were sent to give us. I say Good bye to 'Sandi' as we called her. Good bye to her smiles, laughs and shyness as I knew her. I hear the time clock as it punches for the last time for another co-worker that leaves us in silence. I take time in remembrance. Tears help clean our eyes to see clearly. We will think of you often.

The Dancer

Look at her, she's a Dancer. As she moves her body bends as if it is being bellowed by the winds. She dances as if she is a delicate flower making sure she loses not one pedal. She's a Dancer. A wonderfully graceful Dancer.

Good Bye Summer

I walked along the beach in search of sunshine as I listened to the waves making music as they hit against the rocks. I realized that Fall had taken away my Summer and I walked away. I know Summer will return as I say Good bye for now.

She Stands Strong

She is standing in a holding cell where slaves were kept when they were offloaded from the slave ships here in Savannah, GA. As I look at her I see a Strong Black Woman who remembers her past. She knows that she must be stronger than her ancestors. Some of their past is still here today.

The Breakthrough

Sometime I feel like what is before me is like a tree full of branches. The leaves are gone and I have nowhere to hide. I am now exposed to the world. The sunlight is fading as it is ready to rest after a long day. I am holding on tight to a branch. What do I do now? Wait for the leaves to return or do I move on? Its getting cold and the snow is ready to return... how much longer do I wait here? Should I stay... the leaves will return soon.
