Where dove sail, I am with you,

Where trees stand tall, see our strength:

Where mountains speak—in Solitude,

I am present:

and when rainbow spread its arm,

Across the sky, that’s is you & I,

brightening the sky, sharing colorful,

friendship to the universe;

—near & far, where oneness brings,

Our heart to celebrate love, beyond the sky:

Kerri, when we speak, let our hearts,

Experience overflow of joy even if the sun,

does not shine today in our lives:

Live, live, live and smile!

Feel the sweetness of bountiful kindness,

From the mystical Most high:

I pray you will hear the whispers,

And smile—as you soar gracefully,

whether I am not by your side:

Let my Poetic, flowetic, scribe,

Remind you, that I will always,

Be a friend—sister, unseen by the,

Physical eyes!

About the author


I am a proud mother, grandmother, poet, writer, performer, a singer, great cook, a lover of unique, fashionable earrings, and love to wear & dress in an unique, artistic fashion.
I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege working for the Human Resource Admin, taught at an Head-Start and move on as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose, World-A-Girl and others I admired. My career ended due to the path and choices I made. However, I drew strength to rise, through Christ, the support of love ones and guidance of Christ. I give thanks for the knowledge and experience that allowed me to see my own flaws, steps I took and the game of life. I am still working on the connections with my love ones that has been fractured. However I am grateful that God has allow me to still have a way of reaching out to my love ones and to express my inner thoughts through poetry. I am growing everyday as I work on a higher Christ consciousness of my mind. I give thanks to my natural parents for doing the best they could to see me through my pursuit to success. I consider myself a great person and love to give of myself, which at times are a positive and negative. I am also working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. I hope when you read these poetic thoughts you can relate, especially people who are battling with depression and self-worth. Thank you for reading my poetic thoughts. Think Wisely!
