Poem 18: Late Calls

18th Publicly Shared Poem “Late Calls” by Meka

Baby

Is it too late to call?

I’m about to come

Over

You make me sleepy

I’ve just enough energy to tuck you in

You’ve rocked me

Awake

In my dreams

Say

Something. I

Part 2: Rest in Peace or Pieces


“Sarn’t!”

“Sir!…..Over.”

“This is Warrior 5. Sir. Pat yourself on the back with your free hand; draw a bar in the mud on your forehead…”

“Sir I’m honor…”

“Day old tea?! Lieutenant -one day or one month? Over.”

“T minus one day, Sir.”

“Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot….”

“Roger that, Warrior 5. What the fu.., Sir. Over”

“Confirm. Sit-Rep in two fife.”

“I copy: Situation report in 25 minutes. Location in fife. Over.”

“…Eyes on Juliet?” Clicking noise.

“Three scout teams no commo, Sir, Over.”

“Damnit!” Shouts Warrior 5. Brief white noise followed by a faint click. Silence.

Super! Wonderful Team Member Readership Award

Thank you Whimsical Eclecticist for this award- the second one from you is just as delightful as the first; I am honored. His writings are clean, creative, and smart; it’s no wonder he’s often showered with awards. I’m impressed by his creativity and grateful for his generous blush-inducing appreciation for Love Mekanism. This energy has been a welcome asset to the project – especially now. I know that one necessary challenge for me will have to be to visit the Whimsical Eclecticist blog and not smirk or smile. You should try it sometime!

Rules:

  1. The nominee of The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award shall display the logo on his/her blog.
  2. The Nominee shall nominate 14 readers they appreciate over a period of 7 days, all at once or little by little; linking to their blogs; and telling them about it at their blogs.
  3. The nominee shall name his/her Wonderful Team Member Readership Award nominees on a post during 7 days.

I’ll follow his lead and nominate at least two people a day for the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award– that is a minimum of two added to this post until all 14 have been nominated. All things equal, this process should take no longer than a week.

Wheeeew!!! No interesting facts 😀 Perfect because I’m all out this morning.

This award is really really important because I believe it’s about the relationship between our blogs- as readers, specifically. Like Kamille, who is quick-witted and one of the most honest people I know. Not to mention a dear friend of the project from the very first post. I told her recently how I appreciate that because I know how difficult it is to continue to support anything consistently. Since Love Mekanism Project has been on Facebook too, she mostly follows there, but I am always happy to see her presence.

Now let’s get down to the business of this lovely award:

You know I am sooooooft mushy putty for the Love Mekanism Project Community, Honey. Loving, supportive, oh so sharp, witty, patient, sexy, understanding, empathetic, but honest, and very talented. My keyboards couldn’t build a better partner than you have been to me here. I hoped you might read what I write, and I do write a lot about nearly everything lol, but you hang right on in there with me, and I appreciate that so much. I don’t know how you do it, but I do know that your presence is the perfect “love tap” along with the sweet comments, sharing, and following–all mean alot to me. When I got this wonderful award, I couldn’t wait to share it with you!

First, I’d like to nominate Juno@rt to receive the Wonderful Team Member Readership Award.

1. I love Juno’s blog. It is one of the most aesthetically pleasing blogs I have seen. She’s a has a special gift for emoting through photography; you feel it. One of the first images of hers I re-blogged here was one called Loves 🙂 Through her lens, a simple flower becomes majestic, and immediately you are drawn in– that’s also when you understand that what you’ve seen is worth remembering… immediately. But just to be sure there is absolutely no denying her talents, she pairs her photos with poetry and quotes that could not be more fitting. I don’t know how she does it, but she reads and is active here. You’re an amazing artist. I appreciate it so much. Thank you.

2. My next *PICK* for this award is Flow of My Soul. Ya can’t help but root for the Flow of My Soul blog. Sure, 😀 I connect with the blogger’s story, of course! It’s a little familiar, but mostly because I really dig the work ethic. Challenges are set, completed, and posted as promised. No matter. Having made and heard so many excuses to not start and not finish, it is refreshing to see one forging ahead and getting better with each post while finding the time to be a faithful friend of Love Mekanism Project, and active member of the Community. You are appreciated.

Let it Go to Your Head

You’re perfectly beautiful to me.

Princess?

You’re already a queen.

Before you could walk, your crawl

Stood tall and your eyes

walked a man like a dog

The earth resolved

to turn and revolve

The bright shiny light you brought

3 Things my 3 *PICKS* Reminded me about Getting Picked

3 Things My 3 *PICKS* Reminded Me About Getting Picked

As promised, these are my picks from last week. I did not have any picks this week because of the upcoming New Music Artist Poetry Challenge – Schooled. I will be reviewing works of art, music, and photos, so don’t forget to submit something. Here are my picks from last week and the reasons why if you didn’t find them in Interact last Sunday. As if sharing the love of their work weren’t enough, there was so much more to learn about “winning” or getting picked.

Yes, we urge to merge
we live for the love…of our people
the hope that they get along
     (Yeah, so we did a song)
Getting the point to our brothers and sisters who don’t know the time
(boyyyee, so we wrote a rhyme)It’s dead in your head, ya know:

…our drive to build and collect ourselves with

intellect to revolve TO EVOLVE to self-respect

Cause we got to keep OURSELVES in check

Or else…
