Memorize a poem today. The good Dr is trying to give us a cognitive boost, invigorate the spirit…get the blood pumping! He suggested a nice poem but here’s the one I’m choosing. It’s by Jill Scott from her The Moments, The Minutes, The Hours book of poetry. Diva grabs mic……
To My New Lover
For the first time I’ve allowed someone, no you, to strip me of all my
Clothing, all my confusion, all my doubt, all my fear of love
I am Naked. Yes naked, Butt naked and
Impressed with your ability to see me,
To see ME
Through my private, lonely haze,
You touch me.
You feel me and make me tremble with the possibilities of
Tomorrow, the next day, the next day and forever baby.
I feel my cloud cleared
My rain washing me
My flower blooms in December cold
I lose mental chaos and gain tranquility
You have my power and when I grow weary,
You replenish me
My angry ocean sits placid easy calm
I have become
My entire self.
