When all darkness clouds your sky
Rise from knees and stand

Darkest Of Days (Petrarchan Sonnet)

 

Slowly we capsize into an ocean of fire
Liquid flames splashing onto our lost ship as it sinks
Drifting into an icy oblivion seeing obliteration’s brink
Tears touch and lips meet as we draw closer to flames bemired
Let us hold each other our flesh becoming one afire
A blaze of moments squandered as fiery ignorance shrinks
Flaming passion turned into icy water of a hearts jinx
Now kiss me harder as we part forever in this bed of fire

Once we two were naked without vulgarity
Our nudity glimpsed only by a heavens eye
Together with time we birthed a child beyond purity’s sigh
The world took our fruit and cast it to fray
Cleansed of our wasted moments sanctity
Here in our darkest of days.

LOVE AS STARS

 

Flower Of The Sun Acrylic Print By Mikial Millard

A blue tear passes from her eyes into mine
We cry ice as our hearts pump red lava of life
We skip together from star to star
Lost in a universe of dreams

Our bodies made of stars
Your heart a glimmering diamond of adventure
My face a myriad of primary colors
Your eyes images of my love

Let us lay on the sun tickling each other with foolish jokes
Wave to Earth as our laughter is perceived as cosmic thunder
Your touch makes my palms race and causes a sun flare
If only we could turn off the sun for a moment

To be with you in the silence of true night
Finding the highest heaven in tears on a star.

I had a wonderful time going to New York for the Green Festival. It was just a fortunate day all around. Even the weather was kind as it was supposed to storm most of the day and yet the sky was as blue as ever. The warmth of the air put vigor in my step. I didn’t know what to expect when I got to the event, I was only hoping to find a good turn out with enthusiastic people of all sorts that were excited about learning Vegan facts and buying vegan products.

I could feel the energy as I entered the door, a swirl of progression, interest and positive hopes smashed into my being like the waves of an excited ocean. I felt like Super Man when his super hearing goes haywire as I listened to multiple conversations all at once of people explaining to each other how vegan products were made and how their business was helping the world to be better. The facts being told and the information being shared was beautiful as well as inspiring. I was happy to know that the human family was trying something different and taking a chance on something that can be beautiful.

I was off to asking people questions as a reporter when I first entered but I also let myself wander to see the sights in order to get the feel of what everyone else was experiencing. I met beautiful people of all kinds, strangely all of them seemed genuinely warm, kind and helpful with information. I was happy to see that these efforts of the Green Fest weren’t just about companies selling products but it was primarily about helping the people of the Earth as well as Earth itself.

Talking to people about their experiences with veganism was fun and very interesting. Some people were vegans for as long as I had been, some only tried veganism for two days. There were vegan practitioners of so many levels and degrees. Some people were regular vegans, some part time vegans, others were raw vegans. Through all of this they all shared one characteristic, they were all optimistic about the future possibilities for better health as well as a better planet.

The afternoon flow of people really began to pick up the pace as massive crowds of vegans flooded into the giant building of pier 94 . Every product or information booth was swarmed with groups of people asking green questions or buying loads of green products. It was a beautiful ocean of splashing green thought.

I began asking people whether they thought most people would stick with veganism or was it just a phase. To my surprise most people felt that new vegan practitioners would stick with the practice of eating green and being green. It felt very good to know that such things were not viewed as passing movements of the times.

The audiences for the cooking segments and fashion segments were outstanding. People were taking in all the information their minds could hold about living a green life.

By the afternoon I had asked so many questions, viewed so many vegan products and learned so much new information that my body and brain were growing very tired. I had reached the end of my journey.
