200th Post is a Poem – “Poetry to the Third”

This photo makes me laugh – don’t know why.

I posted a blog the other day on some conspiracy theories like flat earth, things my crazy family wholeheartedly believe, and cultish behavior with their Trumpism. I got some extremist and weird comments. I have to “approve” my comments. Thank goodness.

I ordered the hat with tin foil and ended up with this pink one… wtf?

That’s when I realized, “don’t post weird conspiracy theory stuff, or anything political, on your blog.” You know? Cause the cwazies come out.

So, no more of that. I just deleted the post.

This post won’t be about anything like that.

It’s my 200th post! Yay!

I’ve come to a decision. A life changing decision. I’ll share about this at a later time. It does have to do with writing and or, music. I’m learning how to embrace and not feel guilty that I’m a writer and musician.

For now, I was working on a few books, writing a new song, and poetry. I’m still writing poetry for my third poetry book, Poetry to the Third (should be published by this Christmas). And I was going to post a poem from this book. I hope you enjoy.

Summer Rainstorm

A thousand folds and fingers

Tapping

Thrumming

There is crisp pitters and patters

I close my eyes

Breathing floats along the seam of life

Air smells wet

Not like a dog, wet

Like a fresh bathed body

Skin

Heaven

Currents are moving quickly

It feels cool along my back

A clap of thunder

Mighty and bold

This rainstorm I can hear

A story, newly told

If only

Just a little longer

It passes like a kiss

Of gentler still, the lips

Like the rain

In passing

The thunder rolls gently

Further between

In the distance

Until

Quiet

And I rest my eyes

Lying back

Soothed into a restful

Respite

Thank you for reading my poem. Here’s a great song written by Pretty Patterns (Diego) and sung by Enna Alouette, the songbird.

Lovely piece of music.

You ever ask a question knowing the inevitable answer? Do you wonder why we ask? Maybe we like to hear ourselves ask questions with an answer already printed on the back.

I hope you all have a fantastic rest of your day, weekend, and life. May you find all you seek and search for, but mostly love.

Love you Gracie! 🙂 ❤
