She continued to build her own kingdom quietly with the help of her loved ones

She was both king and queen and free to build as she saw fit

Free and full

On moments she second guessed her solo movement she looked at pictures of Tracee Ellis Ross her favorite boss

She continued to build her own kingdom quietly with the help of her loved ones

She stopped to dance under the full moon and release what no longer served her – She only had time for even exchanges of time and energy

The present moment told her everything she needed to know

She continued to build her kingdom quietly with the help of her loved ones

Free and full

Adam and Eve 6000 (FICTIONAL)

Dear Adam 6000,

As a little girl I believed the story of two loves created for one another by an ultimate Creator, divided by time and poor choices. Distracted by serpents and manazanas…

I have been waiting for you a long time.

So here I am. Here we are. I always knew that you would find me and I’m glad it didn’t take another lifetime. I believe our angels are exhausted because damn are we hardheaded. But God is greater than any trauma we created and we pulled blessings from every lesson.

So here we are. I asked God to send me a sign that it was you; a musical one.

Twice while driving through the city beautiful you played this song.

When I was little girl and this came on the radio it felt like the best day. I was usually with my Dad when I heard it. He used to drive this Buick Regal, sparkly blue with trill rims. I remember him singing “Feel what I feel when I’m feeling” with a big smile on his face, I remember the sky, and I remember smiling too. Riding through Fayetteville with him and listening to music were the best days. I also remember laying on the floor listening to this song in front of a window and feeling like the sunshine was moving through me. I feel as if I can’t completely find the words to explain to you that this song is very special to me. I never searched for it or played it often. I just enjoyed it when I heard it. It’s one of those songs I sing hard as heaven when nobody is around. It’s a song that my inner child and I agree on fully.

I never told you any of this.

The third time you played it we were both slow bopping and you casually said, “I always think of you when I hear this song.” I have no clue where we were driving to, what we had on or even what day it was all I remember are these words and the way they felt when you said them. “I always think of you when I hear this song.”

“Why?” I asked.

“Because you are the sunshine and this is my life in it,” you responded.

What more confirmation could I ever need? I square to Bob I heard God laugh.

I hope that we never forget how cosmic our pairing is. It’s no coincidence almost all of our planets live in the same houses. *smiles I’ll explain later.

I have been waiting for you a long time.

*holds out hand

Leap with me.

Always, Eve 6000

Burn it Down Beautiful | It’s a New Year

Expectation burned hot on the back of my throat

Melted away intentionally with the Vick’s like vapors of optimism and blind faith I rubbed all over myself

It was time to heal and to believe in something more

Something real

Ambition radiated off my being

Anticipation of the new days and adventures to come wake me up earlier and keep me up later

The last few embers of the burning expectation give way to the warm coming of new words

New worlds

I am lit and this is only the beginning
