A Poem for February by James Lott Jr.

 

A Poem for February

its still icey there

Its nice and warm here

We are in the middle of time

Next month brings such promise of rebirth and renewal

I stand in excitement until then

But I need to enjoy February

For what it is

The shortest month of the year

Black History Month

Presidents month

My sisters birthday month

And treat it with respect

Each day that arrives.

JLJ Poetry: What I Want!

Image result for new year motivational quotes

Hello New year

This is what i want.

Lots of laughs

And not at my expense.

Lots of tears

Not because another person I love has left this earth.

Lots of wealth

In Friendships, and relationships, and familyships

Lots of good health

I would love to lose weight naturally but I will take what i can get

Lots of travel

And that can mean around to new places in Southern California

Lots of good will

I want done to me that I do to others

I want kindness, support, love, compassion, strength, courage, confidence, consistency, conflict, challenges, growth and lots of laughs.

You hear me

Lots of laughs.

Give me some funny stuff

Happy New Year, New Year

May we have a good, healthy relationship this Year!

The Dark and the Light of Christmas

it hurts

it really hurts

i can feel you…everywhere

i wish i could see you…anywhere

I went to the store to buy you a Christmas card

Isn’t that crazy. You’ve been dead for a minute now.

I went to the store and I saw all the things you would like.

I cried at a CD of Chaka Khan. I cried at a book for Top Chef. I cried a cute sweater vest in your size.

emotions are swirling all through my head. they are drowning me.

I’m trying to come up for air

I knew this would happen but i was not prepared for it…fully

I remember all the good years we had to together. All the Christmas holidays.

I smile

I cry

then i smile again.

I still have people HERE that i need to give attention to

I still have people here to celebrate the holiday with.

I still have people here at Christmas..and some of them miss you too.

We can miss you together. The survivors.

We can love you together.

I want to be someone who is missed when i am gone.

I have to remember whether i am missing them or being with who’s left

Love is filling the room.

Love is filling my heart

Love is lighting my Christmas.

Poetry is Spilling Out of ME!

I am writing and writing so much poetry. It is spilling out of me! Some i have changed a bit and turned into songs. I am so proud of the surprise success of my Poetry book It was a labor of my life in 2016. My ups and downs and now I have decided that I will end the year with another poetry book. I am currently picking the poems to be included. This will chronicle my 2017 and its ups and DOWNS! I hope to have it out in December.

This has been a great outlet for me and getting my feelings out! I feel better personally and I hope people who pick up the books feel better too and can relate!
