THE YEAR OF TWENTY-TWENTY

A Reflection from a spot in the world in the year of twenty-twenty

A Spot (Redux)
A Reflection from a spot in the world in the year of twenty-twenty
.

The year of twenty-twenty,
Hate must depreciate,
Love must appreciate,
In a spot.
The size of a spot;
doesn’t require too much space,
for it is only a spot.

The year of twenty-twenty,
A spot of life,
from the womb of the universe
where I get to think whatever I want;
While exploring the bodies of waters;
In a spot that offers protection of my peace.

The year of twenty-twenty,
To thine self wake up and stay true,
Although whilst in this year of twenty-twenty,
For in these times seem to be casted into the blue,

The year of twenty-twenty
I am in a spot for,
loving, traveling, dreaming, imagining, smiling,
creating, praying, thinking.and thanking,
when I am in a spot,
a corridor of my mind,
To leave all the negativity behind.

Inside my thoughts,
while in a spot;
Feeling locked in,
Taking this time to open my mind to win.
a spot is for what I allow to come in it,
a spot also comes from within.

Not spinning,
Nor rolling around like a wheel;
Going in circles to no end,
A spot is quiet just still.

The year of twenty-twenty
A spot is a part of me,
My thoughts, my private place of being,
A spot is without,
Though within a world,
Totally full of distractions,
A spot That will eliminate all the unsavory reactions


A spot in my mind,
is a spot.
I can live in a spot for it is mine.
It is only a spot.
In the year of twenty-twenty
We must embrace each other with love,
Expect and respect the love we must share
To take flight like flapping on the wings of a dove.

A spot,
not big enough for the masses,
madness, mayhem, mystery and mischief,
a spot, yet big enough to share.

So therefore,  I am sharing;
from a spot for a spot,
a spot is that positive space of mind;
for with a thought;
can enlighten and brighten up your life,
bigger than the moon.

You also have a spot,
all you have to do is find it.
If life life doesn’t find you well,
be good.

For in the year of twenty-twenty,
Find a spot, we all need one
a spot to have peace of mind; on this earth.
Peace in a spot,
God Blessed, a spot In the year of twenty-twenty.

THE CALIFORNIA FIRES

Mayday, Mayday California is on Fire.

I am devastated these days by the California fires,
mayday, mayday, hurried, rushed and ordered to evacuate,
you must get to safety and stay out of the fury of the fire’s way,
for we that know the danger of fire and destruction does not play,
a fire can change your life in minutes on one hour of a day.

In California a climate of fierce flames of wildfires, has arrived,
gray and black smoke, haze, with orange hues, darkness in daylight skies,
burning and torching hot with homes and buildings crashing down,
the disaster of these fires, hot and scorching, no end in sight as of now.
Air quality down, nowhere to run, nowhere to turnaround.

These wildfires are lit like giant size molten coals of amber, glowing in a forest size barbecue pit,
harboring degrees of the triple digits Fahrenheit,
Mother Nature delivered a show for California with strikes of lightning,
that struck out all electricity and all the light. I remember it started lightning outside my window one night.

Explosions, implosions, over here and over everywhere,
I thought I saw a tunnel,
my eyes were burning; dripping tears; what an illusion,
for the tunnel was not there.

The only lights were dry ashes held with embers and sparks.
eyes so blurry at this moment,
I could not see usual surroundings,
nor could I even see the park.

Winds gusting, lots of crackling, melting down everything in sight,
the fire started raging like a bull to defeat the matador,
while taking down more wires and trees, scalding, blazing, and blistering
Lord please relax this force of nature, bring it to a halt and make it alright.

The California fires are overwhelming and overpowering,
spewing vapors, while delivering catastrophic fumes that are devouring,
a poisoning breath of strife, toxic in every way as well as killing off our wildlife.

The California fires are additionally destroying roads, no outlets,
bringing more heat to these wildfires along with everything in its path.
I feel this need to say more for Mother Nature is rolling out her power, of a furious wrath.

This is another atrocity to add to the present day battles we have in suffering all over this world, so much to face right now, I oftentimes wonder, what else is in store for a world which seems to be continuously trembling down.

People in and of the Golden State are unsure where they stand,
All I can say is keep your faith, lift and love one another, your fellowman.
For in this way our reach can pull us through this furious smothering all over California land.

For California and fire detection, we leave this to the Lord to keep us protected,
so we may continue to move in the right direction.
For in this year of twenty twenty, through the embers of wood from nature’s trees, I can continue to feel the hope of a resurrection.

I can pray for Mother Nature to calm the winds down and bring all to safety,
I can and will pray for the firefighters too, for they are working overtime to save me and you. Thank you firefighters with Blessings to you all for the courageous, heroic frontline work you all do.

I am taking this time to write this bit of some California fire history and herstory down. For I am living in these California dire straits moment by moment, in an unprecedented time as of right now.

Mother Nature sends heat warnings along with gusts of wind,
a higher rage of nature, feeling this in my heart, I cannot smile right now as the fires continue to roar.
For too many more of these fires can easily end up at my front door.

Pray for California.
