  3. Poetry or More...

    I successfully published a poetry book, i entitled, Poetry or More. Now, the original plan I used is to place three year in one book, text side audio. Unfortunately, a 100MB or 100,000KB limit exist on ebooks that can be loaded <that is fair cause that equate to a huge amount from raw text>. Thus, I made four version, one is only text that include all the years. The other three are partials: 2015-2016, 2017 January to June, or 2017 July to December. The text only includes all the poem stories, poem of the months or seasons. I placed the links to each Poetry or More variant below, and if you want an excerpt I kept the December solstice 2017/December 2017/December Poem Story 2017/July Aphelion 2017 poem blog entries. All is linked below. Enjoy.

  6. December Solstice 2017

    Happy December Solstice. Mama Earth in less than a moment tilt her axis farthest from parallel to the Sun, more than any other time save one between the Perihelions. May those in the northern hemisphere, have a collective , communal warmth, may those in the southern hemisphere, have a energetic smooth cool. A once virgin prince, now white hair king Ponder to her tomb, the Last Rose, from Hadinchi On his regal seat, in a cold empty hall He remember, the fairies dance, on all the jewel pall's No longer their sprinkle's, in this long fall He leave his seat, stride slow on broke floor He see her portrait, made when good time's were more A goblin weave'd her skin, from hairs on the amber boar No longer it make step, in this long fall Open the hall door, and on to the mausoleum The path shimmer or shine, throughway, to where his woe's sum From glass depicting her life, molded from dragon fire's, or jitu hum's No longer they breath or song, in this long fall Finally, to her body rest, in grandeur timeless A statue made, from the king mind or hand, to her likeness Eight ninth from centuries, on the craft, and still a jumble mess No longer can he remake, in this long fall And fall... the white hair king, crying My Love! my love... Time smooth over, and none recall, or only hear whisper, in winter To the once virgin prince or Tamawari, his lover ...But, the rarest whisper, say a black dove cry in a spring, will end their leter Audio link( https://www.spreaker.com/user/6716082/december-solstice-2017-poem ) Check out my ebooks- the free one is noted, please read/enjoy/give me your response: LINK Short Story Collections LINK JIHI seriesLINK The Gospel of Joseph: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/gospel-of-joseph Be Safe Image from this LINK
  7. December 2017 poem

    I will place the audio for the december 2017 poem in the winter solstice, december 21st, enjoy the october while. the november and december are below in text. November I don't know what is wrong with collard green's but they are not like they use'd to be I remember smelling a valley farther than any can see I remember chewing the rubbing's from a loving hand, to a green Where are those collard green's? Silly me... where are the folk who know collard green's? None around seem to know, what green's be the smell, down from roof gardin's the smiling face's from each park, to each subway remembering, loving hand's, to green's Where are they who know green's? Silly me...walking on concrete The collard green's, or those who know them can't live on the cold street They all flew to a country, where life is free December I hear some speak to maturity why am I not convince? do I have access to a wise diary am I living behind a fence nothing literal or from prison is about me sole support from my sense kin to all common water's born from being many schnee each winter, the former liquid chime, Never Again! On the craterous surface, will we be sow Under only the sky, above all other life, is our remaining time ... then the sun rise, and maturity prove elusive again ... I hear few speak to possibility why do most shun if sense do they have no craft they fee are they surround from total absence? nothing craftal or annihil they don't see all support from their mince kin to all warstarter's born from inherent malflee each winter, the sanguine rhyme, Always Again! In the cavernous channels, will we be sow Under only the hide, between all other life, is our remaining time ... then the lids rise, and possibility prove all coming again ...Can a possible be immature Is immaturity a craft from some possible to reject all other possible Do the questions prove sense?

    *The following is the films I know from the 2017 Library of congress film entries* Ace in the Hole Die hard Dumbo Field of Dreams 4 Little Girls The Goonies Guess WHo's Coming to Dinner La Bamba Spartacus Superman Titanic _List_ https://www.loc.gov/item/prn-17-178/ One film on there I did not know that I was able to see was Wanda, it is really good. And I think a must see for every woman and every man who doesn't mind a human woman. The backstory to this film is magical. Barbara Loden was married to her second husband ELia Kazan ,Viva Zapata! ,when Harry Schuster offered 100,000 for her to make her own film. She rewrote what Elia Kazan wrote and based it on her own life. I love this film, i wish i had taped it to be honest. Only two actors are in it and both are brilliant and to be honest, the same characters. The difference is , Wanda is living the life as someone who is only bound to the road. HE is living the life as someone who doesn't know the road has turned. His lines are pure raw cro magnon male, when he speaks to her holding food or their talk while they drink beers is a must see. Her replies are genius to him though. When she answers about her former life, it is nearly heartbreaking in one level, while more honest than what is from most female characters in films. Oddly, Ray in star wars episode seven epitomize that in science fiction. Oh , remember to check the hat she gets:) affectionally, I present *_Wanda_* https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUpkk5YB6Nc

    What cliche do you dislike the most? but are cliches as negative as suggested? you know what i mean? In an age where shortly typed prose is dominant. Are cliches negative or expected, natural. Is the smiley face a cliche? meaning, I used two previously. https://kobowritinglife.com/2017/11/23/how-to-avoid-cliches-in-your-writing/ I am on Overdrive through Kobo. what is your lulu profile page @Mel Hopkins

    Cleopatra Jones was mostly written or partially produced from MAx Julien , starred Tamara Dobson. Black people had a hand in the money/script/direction/acting in this film, thus making it one of the few true black films , in my opinion. What do you think should be involved in a remake? any ideas. article https://shadowandact.com/underground-creator-misha-green-to-write-produce-cleopatra-jones-remake-at-warner-bros/?utm_content=bufferf81d1&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer misha green twitter https://twitter.com/mishagreen?lang=en referring tweet https://twitter.com/shadowandact/status/936322338072793089

    @Mel Hopkins I think you hit the problem on the head. If you take Get Out and replace all the black characters, for which only five exist <outside the black cops>, and replace them as white you have a plot that is part wicker man <original or nicholas cage>/manchurian candidate/the strangers. Nothing plot wise was not done before: mental manipulation to a protagonist to serve the agenda of a financially affluent shadow organization, white female antagonist who acts as a bait to the male protagonist, a deadly set of whites <use lethal force> in a white suburban area. The protagonist side his friend are the only steady black characters. the black cops were only used to show how impotent black law enforcers will be , which is no other than white law enforcers in similar scenarios in films, ala halloween 2 and law enforcement mocked donald pleasance. The white grandmother and grandfather and a white man who bought the brother in the opening scene inhabit three black characters bodies who are only expressed through moments of mental stress or the flashlight which break the mental hold, like when the black maid starts to cry after the male protagonist says i am only nervous around so many white people. Thus, three from the five black character are never fully exposed. My point being the plot is not absurd, as white violence to blacks in the usa is if anything a statian tradition. but a film that display white people who are fiscally wealthy/country side folk <not exactly urban elites>/who have no visible danger to them<like the texas chainsaw folk> abusing or murdering many black people in the most complete way is what the golden globes wanted to deem a comedy. If the cast is all white then like wicker man/manchurian candidate/the strangers/halloween the film is a thriller, suspense thriller. If having a character that speak in a buffoon manner dictate you are a comedy then transformers 4 is a comedy, mark wahlberg's friend. Some say the beginning of the film is funny but the opening scene isn't funny but honest. Black people do speak like that in white communities at night. And law enforcement may not like it, but too many missing cases in the black community in new york city exist to suggest Get Out is falsifying how law enforcement work to missing cases in the black community. But, when you see the film. Below is the scripts enjoy the reads, apologize for the format issues. The movie script https://www.springfieldspringfield.co.uk/movie_script.php?movie=get-out This is an early script, it varies from the movie in vital ways, and to be honest, i can see as an earlier script, the rewriter gave it a more neutral ending and softened some of the character interactions. I wonder your thoughts to the variance. your thoughts @Neftali Rivera Jr @sabine ziya @Maame Dede @Cynique @Uniquelymade7 http://scriptslug.com/assets/uploads/scripts/get-out-2017.pdf from here http://scriptslug.com/scripts/get-out
