Challenge Response by Melba Christie – I must speak up


My heart speaks up all the time

but the thoughts are only mine.

My soul speaks up frequently;

but my soul swears me to secrecy.

However today I must speak out loud

I must make at least, Mrs. Metelitz proud.

She always told us to take control of the shroud.

She told us to take a stand

and if we must,


even reprimand

what is wrong,

what is untrue,

oh yes, and whoever wants to misconstrue.

I must speak up

I cannot hold my tongue

It was ok when I was too young.

Today is the day;

when I must say,

what I feel,

Because I cannot believe

what we are all living is really real.

I must speak up before something even more horrible occurs

like more deaths because of ignorance and grave errors

or a war in the midst of this health crisis.

We must decree justice.

I am here to tell you

we must all unite.

and not allow partisan politics win the fight.

We need truth and honesty;

we cannot allow any more of this travesty.

Our democracy must prevail;

and propel our ship with the toughest of sails.

Our journey has been hard up until now;

but together we will make this virus kowtow

to our firm stance and belief

that God will help us get through our grief.

Our Nation of the people,

is our principal value;

one for all and all for one

United we will win the run.

God Bless America.

A Picture Says It All


Drawing by Melba Christie (c) 2020

Remember

No matter where you are on this great planet

No matter what language you speak

The symbol above is quite universal

Our hearts all beat the same

Take a minute and listen to your heart beating

It may sound a little louder, A little bolder

because our hearts are beating in unison

more than ever.

God bless you all.

Today at noon London time

Big Ben bongs to announce

its retirement for a while

after all is said and done

the historic clock will be back in style.

 

Today at 2:44 PM New York time

where everyone

no matter where you are from

is in a New York State of mind

will gather to commune

with the sun and moon

witnessing a total eclipse of the sun

 

some may listen to the following songs

that reassure nothing will go wrong

tunes like:

Let the Sunshine In” or

“Here Comes the Sun”

will probably take top billing

 

I get goosebumps

and a real good feeling

I hope for the future to be bright

hopefully we can all make it right.

 

 

From Oregon to South Carolina

this unique celestial event

brings us together

in an almost spiritual sense

no matter what the cost or expense.

It is all that people talk about

I cannot wait to hear the hoorays and shouts

when Moon covers the sun 70 percent

the totality of love

for our universe will be expressed.

“A total eclipse of the heart”

Glory be!

Will the excitement

ignite compassion,

greater tolerance

and love for each other?

Let us wait and see.

 

Don’t Forget to Protect your eyes!!!  Happy Viewing! 

 

Does it Matter What the Groundhog Sees?


Does it matter what the groundhog sees,

in times of such uncertainty?

Spring will be eventually.

Daffodils, and pink peonies bloom endlessly

and I for one hope eternally.

Nature promises to be true.

All we need to do is do

what matters the most

and happiness will be our host.

Complexities in life will not cease

But if we love well

meaning love each other

only time will tell

the human spirit will survive

and cultivate a new sping,

and harmony within,

clear and still alive.

God help us all to realize

that it does not matter

what the Groundhog sees.

Peace is up to you and me.

Our Connectivity


The blue sky connects us

trees connect us

raindrops connect us

the beautiful songs of birds,

the fluttering of a butterfly

and the buzzing of a bumble bee

connect us.

When we breathe in

and when our hearts beat

we are even more connected.

Let’s take advantage

of the connectivity

and pray for peace.

 

Super Connectivity
