Mosaic Culture

Mosaic Culture

My perfect world
is a mosaic
Where each piece connects
the other in beauty
There are shades of earth
Deep brown and pitch black
to clay and sandy soil
Sky connecting clouds of white
crimson, rosy pink and graphite
Sometimes golden and sun-kissed
Trees with outstretched arms
In greens, reds and yellows
Oceans holding everything in place
With blue-green reflections
of its inhabitants
A rainbow of ebony, mahogany,
ginger and cinnamon
with alabaster and ivory
delightfully blended in hues
of cafe au lait and mocha 
Eyes of sapphire and cognac
pewter, graphite and terra-cotta 
Sensual colors of eyes and skin
Bleeding the same color red
and crying identical crystal tears
Wishing to live in harmony 
with each other
as it should be

Sarah is hosting D'Verse Poets tonight and she
has prompted us to share a poem that we have
recently read and use it to inspire us to
write one.
One of my favorite poets is Langston Hughes.
I did not grow up with his poetry but I have come to
love it.  I was inspired by his poem Harlem Sweeties
where his use of descriptive color is so beautiful and
mesmerizing to read.  It captured me immediately.

Eyes Wide Open – Week 11

Good Morning!

Another interesting week while I was out running.  I even caught sight of an Iguana!  You just never know what you are going to find out there. Inspiration is everywhere.

Enjoy your Saturday and please share some of the things you see when you keep your eyes wide open.

Have a great Saturday!

This Iguana was sitting on the ledge of a bridge I was running over.  He was still there when I came back an hour later!

I am not dyslexic but I can look at this sign a hundred times and I still see Oxygen & CRAP!

Pretty Mexican Petunias camouflaging this mailbox. I wonder if the postman ever gets stung by a bee trying to get the mail in the box!

 

Now that’s a mail box!  Stunning mosaic work.  I’d insist on snail mail just so I could open it everyday!

This Bull Mastiff is named George.  His dog walker introduced me and informed me George just moved here from Manhattan and has his own webpage.  Wow! a VIP.

I think George’s (photo above this one) dog walker forgot to pick up after him and left it on this neighbors front yard

Mosaic

This is where I want to be
With people eager and free
Different looks and colored hair
Seems a place where we can share
A diverse cultural melting pot
We get to see what each other’s got
Learning to respect our neighbors
and appreciating their labors
New colors, sights and sounds
Different foods to be found
Some have suffered like we cannot imagine
Escaping a vile and dictatorial faction
Needing our comfort and kindness
Along with some color blindness
We all bring something to the table
It is not necessary to label
We can learn a lot with an open heart
Our mosaic life is an abstract art
