#1

grant and then guarantee

We the people
of the One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
must see the wisdom
and benefit to all
in continually striving
to grant and then
guarantee
each and every
individual
regardless of
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
or belief
the liberty
to exercise freedom
through an
adaptively
resilient
transitional
and transformational
process
of intelligent
progression
similar to the butterfly
from cocoon
to flight. ……
……. experience fully
the right of choice
equality
and justice
for all
therein
the co-evolutionary
creation of
a social environment
where all
groups formed
comprised of
individuals
grown in liberty
will reap the blessings
of freedom as well

peace out

#2

must become Pro-Human

The Human-Kind
The One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
We the people
of planet earth…..

must become Pro-Human
work together
have the wisdom
envision the purpose
and foresee the benefit
despite the odds
in creating
a human environment
that leads to an
Independence Day
celebrated by all……

The Human-Kind
The One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
We the people
of planet earth

where the right of choice
equality
and justice
is a reality for everyone

peace out

#3

PRO-HUMAN with a PROACTIVE belief

as a mystic philosopher
who spiritually
is PRO-HUMAN
with a PROACTIVE belief
in only One Race
THE HUMAN RACE
regardless of
skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
or belief
I fervently
hope and pray
THE HUMAN RACE
through the lived experience
of an intelligently
progressive
transitional
and transformational
process of
enlightenment
will envision
see the wisdom
to satisfy
the spiritual need
for acceptance
of each other
and that
a healing for all
could occur through
the communicative
process
of open
dialogue   ~
~   the bringing back to light
out of the darkness
all hidden
and suppressed
predispositions
and inhibitions
causing
the dis-ease
of social ills
so We the people
The Human-Kind
of The One Race
on planet earth
THE HUMAN RACE
can willingly
and mutually
within a cooperative
spirit
of unconditional love
set
aside
our differences ….
to find ways to improve
the overall well-being of   ~
~   ALL HUMANITY
with the spiritual intent
to create a social environment
that will emerge …..
as a quote from the introduction
of the book Nature ~ IQ:
Let’s Survive,
Not Die !
– Adaptive Transitioning says ~

A happy, healthy, prosperous and informed humanity is then more hopeful, confident, self-sufficient and more a productive contributor to society. This improved overall well-being for the people is the primer that ignites a more positive mindset about the gift of life being lived to its fullest potential. A more worry free state of being, frees the mind of the people from the burden of day to day ills. The more open and clear the mind is with less distraction, helps the people see the wisdom for becoming united and focused through a commonality in purpose, the survival of humanity. We the people as a whole will then be more willing and able to set aside the differences between us that the trials and tribulations of life have exacerbated. This shared purpose with a clear vision, the preservation of the human species, spirited on by an improved well-being will help the people to not only want to take a more active role in life, but be more proactive in our efforts.

peace out

Year of the Poet III ~ July Edition

#1

how I wish for . …
how I long for…..
how I remember
the breeze
wistful
but comforting
as it blew
through the window
of my childhood room
in the afternoon
of a warm …
sunny
day
when summer
felt more familiar
and more reliable
where the smell
of a hard rain
across the soil
seemed rejuvenating
the way
the nature gods
had designed it to be
unlike the present ~
the seasons
like summer
its timely pattern
of occurrence
its form of weather
appear out of wack
to me anyhow
no longer a boy
this aged man
and yet ~
how I wish for…..
how I long for…..
how I remember
the breeze

peace out

this or that
here or there
where is
the head to toe
the length
and breadth
of the matter  ~
you know
all the stuff
in between …..
we can’t learn
to get from
point A
to point B
without
experiencing
and understanding
the middle ……
so why then
the impatient
and intolerant
response to  ~
Black Lives Matter …..
….. with
All Lives Matter  ~
firstly
don’t we need
acceptance
and then healing
through
the communicative
process
of open
dialogue  ~
the bringing back to light
out of the darkness
all hidden
and suppressed
predispositions
and inhibitions
causing
the dis-ease
of social ills
so we can
collectively
air out and release
all pain
sorrow
and regrets
to successfully
let go
get past
and move on …..
intelligently  ~
progressively
transitioning
as a people
along the road
of enlightenment
and human
transformation
yes we can
and must …..

peace out

#3

I AM me
you ARE you
ain’t the
right
to choose
what
really
matters  ~
equality
and justice
for each
and every
person
the individual
ain’t that
the answer
to the riddle
called
freedom  ~

peace out

hearth of war

2016-01-10 07.10.13
you died
for your country
upon the hearth
of war
you gave
it all
and now float
in the heavens
with God
the angels
you are loved
by We the people
who live in the realm
of freedom
because of your
eternal sacrifice
we love you
forevermore
while we figure out
the way to…..
everlasting peace
where our own
no longer
have to die
upon the hearth
of war

peace out

Happy Memorial Day

a global social environment of PEACE

2016-01-02 10.14.51

peace not violence
not just a dream
in a far away
some-day reality
but a real goal
to be had   ~
an ideology
for living
a global
social environment
created by
and for …..
ALL of THE HUMAN RACE
regardless of skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture or belief
a global
social environment
of PEACE
only can be achieved if   ~
please note this quote
from the poem
NatureIQ.ORG  –  brought forth
within the spirit behind
the book series Nature  ~  IQ:
Let’s Survive, Not Die !
We the people
as ONE RACE
must set aside
our differences
and focus on seeing
the benefit
and wisdom
in proactively
helping each other
better help ourselves
to improve
the overall well-being
of
all
humanity

also note the following
poem within this poem
in regards to the notion
~   a global
social environment
of PEACE
its essay style
is an adaptation
to the introduction
of the second book in the series
Nature ~ IQ: Let’s Survive,
Not Die ! – Adaptive Transitioning
a happy …..   healthy ….
prosperous and informed humanity
is then more hopeful   ~   confident   ~
self-sufficient and more
a productive contributor
to society
an improved overall well-being
for humanity
is the primer that ignites
a more positive mindset
about the gift of life
being lived to its fullest potential
a more worry free state of being
frees the mind
of humanity
from the burden of day to day ills
the more open and clear the mind is
with less distraction
helps humanity see the wisdom
for becoming united and focused
through a commonality in purpose
ALL of THE HUMAN RACE
will then be more willing and able
to set aside the differences
between us
that the trials and tribulations
of life have exacerbated

peace not violence
not just a dream
in a far away
some-day reality
but a real goal
to be had   ~
an ideology
for living
a global
social environment
created by
and for …..
ALL of THE HUMAN RACE
regardless of skin color

she is my BFF

2015-12-26 10.05.23

she is as real
as the sun in the sky
…. shining brightly
on a cold Winter’s day
that gives off
a radiant light ….
so spectacularly
it warms
all our hearts
she is my BFF
BEST FRIEND FOREVER
I first felt her warmth
in the 6th grade
she ended up marrying
one of my dearest friends
and together had
a magnificent son
who is a son to me now
over the years
like the tides of the sea
due to circumstances
we have drifted in and out
of each others lives
in later years
as I quickly approach
my sixties
I have become
a social activist artist
and the spectacular her
her struggle
the good with the bad
has brought her forth
as a Mark Twain
Halley’s Comet type
to become one of
my most influential muses
~ RLF
her family life’s history
has inspired
the RLF: Images with Words
(The Muse Series for MS Research)
and the Slavery in America

~  Virginia Edition

how fortunate I am
to have her in my life

’cause …..

she is as real
as the sun in the sky
…. shining brightly
on a cold Winter’s day
that gives off
a radiant light ….
so spectacularly
it warms
all our hearts
she is my BFF
BEST FRIEND FOREVER

I fully support Hillary Clinton

can you hear in the current
political movement
that
resurgent
murmur
more prevalent
in days gone by
within the disposition
of human existence
dormant viral
traits of
human behavior
just thirsting for
its former prominence
and once again
become this inhibitor
to the intelligently progressive
human process
toward
a societal environment
and ideology
that fully supports
the inalienable rights
a part of THE LAWS OF NATURE
~   that freedom of choice
prosperity
justice
and equality for all
THE HUMAN RACE
is not a lofty goal
for We the people
to achieve
its progression
should be a basis of fear
and should be suppressed
that it is not a Godly virtue
to support the development
of all
colors of   ~
skin
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture or belief

in the year 2016
Donald Trump’s
political ideology
and vision
is a digression
and not befitting of
ALL THE HUMAN RACE
as our race
intelligently progresses
through the annuls of time

’cause of such
it is my resolve
in the year 2016
to fully support Hillary Clinton
for President of the United States of America

Donald Trump…
in my vision of America
I show you no disrespect
I just don’t believe the way you do …..

This poem is dedicated to Amy Siskind and Amy King for trying to make the world a better place. Yes I have noticed. Peace Out Humanity !

~ peace out humanity ~

peace out

~  peace out humanity ~

a fruitless sentiment
ineffectual communication
if planted with a seed
barren of  ….
the right kind
and amount of  …..
direct action

he is my friend and mentor
part of  …..
the reason
why I’ve turned up
the dial for the heat of   ~
the societal stove
as a social activist
performance artist
I use this kind of   ~
direct action art
to create a body metaphor
while participating in an event
like a marathon
I artistically wear
black running clothes with a hood
a symbolism for bringing back
the light
out of    ~
the darkness
hidden social ills
that plague THE HUMAN RACE
to be aired out
and confronted through
the healing process of  …..
dialogue
that will lead humanity
to a healthy
and peaceful coexistence

~  peace out humanity  ~

a fruitless sentiment
ineffectual communication
if planted with a seed
barren of  ….
the right kind
and amount of  …..
direct action

this mentor and friend
of   ~
mine
has shown
the world and to me
his propensity towards peace
not violence
he took part in orchestrating
a variation to direct action
the pouring of   ~
blood
like the biblical sacrifice
on draft records
in the late sixties
he went to jail
for this public casting in stone
as if a reenactment
the once again etching of   ~
one of   ~
the ten commandments
“thou shall not kill”
an ideological purpose
communicated in a way
to bring this
punctuation mark
attention to  ….
that humane cause
called PEACE
I’ve stayed at his home
went to the local flee market
where he   ~   his better half
and fellow comrades
engage the people
with their social activist
type of   ~
message
I have discussed at length
with him
about the methodology of   ~
direct action
at times as pointed
as an arrow shot to the heart
the pros and cons of   ~
its ability
to effectively communicate
to the people
as far as
the way to obtain
world healing
a kind of   ~
direct act
that communicates
a healing dialogue
among We the people
that would
eventually
create an environment
that leads to world peace
and where sometimes
the type of   ~
direct action used
could receive more attention
thus distracting away
….    obscuring
the message
being communicated
for the cause

~  peace out humanity  ~

a fruitless sentiment
ineffectual communication
if planted with a seed
barren of  ….
the right kind
and amount of  …..
direct action

he helped critique
and wrote an endorsement
for the first book in my series
Nature  ~  IQ: Let’s Survive,
Not Die !
a spiritual
poetic  ~  prose essay
through the eyes of   ~
a mystic
about seeing the value of   ~
proactively working together
to improve
the overall well-being of   ~
humanity
a community stew type of   ~
direct action
a proactively humane
social process
taken on
communicated appropriately
and advanced
by We the people
ALL of   ~
THE HUMAN RACE
as one race
no matter
the color of   ~
skin
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture or belief
a diversity of  …..
ingredients
tasty enough for all
filled with the right kind of  ….
nutrients
that nutritiously stirs
a dialogue for healing
within human
collective consciousness
a paradigm shift of   ~
enlightenment
that through a process of  …..
intelligent progression
future generations of  …..
THE HUMAN RACE
become the creators of   ~
World Healing
where such a direct action
effectively communicated
will spiritually lead
a healed humankind
to a loving coexistence of   ~
World Peace

~  peace out humanity  ~

a fruitless sentiment
ineffectual communication
if planted with a seed

not everything…. must end

every  ~  thing in Nature
must end
like the year does
at the end of December
We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
inherently grow old
and tire-out
eventually
at the end of our lives
our bodies wither away
as dust
under the stars
of heaven
we acquiesce
to the laws of Nature
whether it be
peaceful or not
…..  after our end
We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
do live on though
through the help
of artifacts
left behind
for a while
in the memory of those
still alive

do such endings
to our human life
this end
somehow diminish
our good deeds
our contributions
to the living
where We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE
~   our acts
our proactive manner
to initiate change
for the betterment of all
weren’t worthy
of our effort
and time
hold no lasting value
or benefit
for our kind
THE HUMAN RACE
that maybe
we should have not
done them
in the first place

God bless those who do
who took the chance
to give back to life
more than they received
saw the wisdom in doing so
before their end
despite the inherent ending
of We the people
of the human-kind
THE HUMAN RACE

every ~ thing in Nature
must end

not everything ….

peace out

if Bertie can ~ SO CAN I

387173_213385868_Medium

Dedicated to my Muse RLF as she lives the day to day struggle associated with MS and Fibromyalgia.

as I ran those finishing
miles ….  of the Richmond
Virginia Marathon
this performance artist
dressed in all black with a hood
an artist using art to create change
for all THE HUMAN RACE
regardless
of skin color
sex
gender
nationality
ethnicity
culture
or way of belief
I’m running this race
from start to finish
to create
this breathing
dynamic
and proactive
body metaphor
today
for all watching to see
to promote my
Slavery in America
Image with Words Collection
~  Virginia Edition
exhibited in
The Urban Individualists Gallery
at Art Works
on Hull Street in Richmond
….. my thoughts drift back
to all those
early morning hours
how hard it was to get
my old and achy
arthritic body going
~    stretching it
~    twisting it
~    rotating it
~    strengthening it
those 400 stomach crunches
~    drinking plenty of water
~    sticking into my mouth
a vitamin and an Aleve
before stepping outside
into the darkness
the hot to the cold
I’d say to myself
if Bertie can
get up and moving
as she lives
her day to day struggle
associated with MS and Fibromyalgia
SO CAN I
I will lose the weight
improve my health
I will run that marathon
to show all I love
THE HUMAN RACE
I am living a life
with a purpose
not just living a life
that spiritually
the key
the road
the journey
the race
to a fulfilling
and joyous life
is focused on doing and giving
more to others
than I’d expect to receive
from them

’cause
if Bertie can
SO CAN I

peace out
