Her Water Glass Offering

The Atlantic tidal wave wore her smile offering a thirst quenching drink

Beautiful, strong and calm flowing mother of water; abundance of nourishment

Steady flowing, all knowing, soft and warm the calm before the storm

Her whisper called him by his name, mister

Daughter of a hidden and forgotten diaspora

 

Harlem,

Heaven is at the foot of Mother…

      1. Small word with a huge impact… I’m more nervous if anything. As an artist I’m sensitive about my craft. Styles are often misunderstood. I’m afraid of turning someone off (Cloud bubble to self… The fear of not having enough talent to be of value).

        As for Miracle Challenges I love it. It forces me to press the publish button much sooner than I’d prefer. I normally will sit on a piece and allow the universe to reveal sign, signals and symbols for me to add or to consider. More people are following me so the pressure to do well has increased.

      2. Artist? That’s nice to hear. Sorry I’m yet to read your About page. Will check it tomorrow.
        That’s very true. More followers more responsibility โ˜บ
