Poem: My Life, My Love , My All

Poet Krissy Mosley

She is a black gypsy
her law is love
it is the fruit of her lips
and when she gives
she gives out of her belly
ancient waters – running(s)
of wisdom from purgatory
of lost soul- she loves to find
binding the ashes together
binding the smoke and flame
shadows of all shades
shadows of days – in lonely
shadows of nights – in longing
shadows of scratching and surviving
and when she gives the trees bow at her offerings
the sky breathe(s) – fresh winds in her direction
seedlings jump into germination
conjuring up the power of connection
the power of affection
the power – a simple touch
to heal lost souls like mine

~ Krissy Mosley

Day26 #WritingMyselfWhole: Keep Those Prayers Burning

We are kind,

gentle -natured people,

unfettered souls 

trying to piece together 

a living, 

trying to piece together faith 

trying to hold back- afraid 

like old cotton sheets

wa-a-y down in the wash 

smelling up the days 

of wa-a-y back when 

We made mud pies 

We made sunshine 

We glued our problems together

We loved real -hard

We fought real-hard

We prayed real-hard 

We dreamed real- hard 

We cried-real -hard

for real change to come…. 

Poet Krissy Mosley

Day25 #WritingMyselfWhole: #PrayersForUvlade Texas,

Writer of Poet’s Vision

Put your
arms around me
we need it
more
than
ever

not a moment of silence
not a whispering plea
let the world fall to its’ knees

let this prayer hold weight
with arms and legs
that change petty things
such as gun laws,
that hold ruthless evils
and keep- senseless death
from happening

Dear love,
keep our children
that they may have
a better chance
to run and roam free

Put your
arms around me
we need it
more
than
ever
now….

our prayers are for Uvalde ,for our school children and all those effected …. Poet Krissy Mosley
