SoCS: Precious


Is the congregation of people

under a church’s steeple

in a mosque

praying in a temple


Are the poor and meek

and technology geek

daughters of the rich

sons of middle class


Multi-colored range of hues

those whose boundaries refuse

to hate the hateful

or exist with intolerance


Righteous sinners

lottery winners

the far-flung right

and the liberal left


Moms, dads, sisters, brothers

grandpa, grandma, plenty of others

family and friends

acquaintances, neighbors


Wisdom in the elderly

hotshot thinking cleverly

baby in its mother’s arms

tween with a fan-girl crush


All sizes and shapes

superheroes with capes

those unable to see

those who struggle to read


The lost and the found

wanderers who get around

a mystic with spirit

a realist who loves the facts


The world in large scope

nations perpetuating hope

countries at war

refugees seeking home


Humanity in embrace

millions of one face

they gather

in communal togetherness

call one another

        We need more like this to unite us. We’re so divided right now. Makes me sad. Hoping your post rings true with others. Be nice to see a reblog bonanza 😂

    From Gibbs

    My momma left me
    No woman in sight
    My momma left me
    No salmon tonight

    When she left for work this morning
    She was pullin’ a suitcase behind
    She gave me an extra, guilty scritch
    But no extra kibble to find

    My momma left me
    No woman in sight
    My momma left me
    No salmon tonight

    I woke myself up around supper time
    And I parked my fur down by the door
    It never opened. She’s gone for good
    I’m starving here on this floor

    I tried to get Ziva to wait with me
    To try to send a vibe
    Sittin’ and waitin’ ain’t her cup of tea
    I swear she ain’t part of my tribe

    My momma left me
    No woman in sight
    My momma left me
    No salmon tonight

    It hurts when your woman leaves you
    It hurts me right down to my core
    I still don’t think it’s a thing she could do
    So I’m sittin’ here next to this door.
