Brown

The tone of the melaninated crown of glory. The shade of stories told of old and new. It is the hue of Heru, the distant one. The protector of Kemet and enemy of Set. A shade of black which has professed in fact, that the Nubians of the Nile connect, to each corner of Gaia,…

Earthbound

A lit sky in my mind, has cast a shine over the dark deeds of mankind, seen through my eyes. I struggle to find the reasons why?   Why?   Why does the fate of a people so great become intertwined with an undying, generated resuscitated hate.   Four young girls in a Birmingham church,…

Gray

“The once lone grey wolf with cold blue eyes, who despised the separation of the neighboring packs, returned from self-exile and led a crusade to win their unity back. Psychological they say gray, this solid stone shade is unemotional, neutral and motionless. Though the tale, reveals, an ashen leader that has chosen a side. The…

Addicted

“I need you. At least that’s what I think. You’ve become part of my daily intake. You are a web, woven within my life, which I’m tangled in. Have I made the choice consciously to be in the position I’m standing in or was I lead here by maleficent forces, which have served as the…

Bob

  “Bob was odd. He couldn’t dance to save his life: Should his left foot move once, his right foot moved twice. He never bothered to take any lessons, because he could dance, according to his own perception. One evening, Odd Bob, went to a night club alone, the lights enticed him, the music lead…

Another Break Up

“I crouched down, in the silence of her absence. Loves alchemy transmuted my cupped hands into a broom, as I swept the dead rose petals she threw, to the center of my room. It was then that I felt it: Liberation paying us a visit that night, though I wonder if I was the only…

Distant Mirror

“You are my distant mirror, Reflecting a freedom song only heard by these ears. You are my will incarnate, When I am feeling bound to laws erected in my being for years. You are a piano scale played at dawn, A symphony performed in the evening. I give gratitude for your hands placed in my seasons,…

Nice Catch

“I caught her with an honest lure,🐟 🐟And gently threw her back into the shallow waters, Asking her to reflect before we again join hands wet.🐟 🐟For if you are to be my catch. Lovingly attached.🐟 🐟I want you to know your depths 🐟and live with me in those infinite coves, 🐟without regret.” – Ricardo Hanley…

Coffee

“You are the rising wings to the multitude, Carrying scents of french vanilla and hazelnut in your gust. You caffeinated kiss is our brewed remedy, waking this sleepy world up.” – Ricardo Hanley Jr.

Love and Sex

“My instrumental heartbeat moves my tongue to explain the divine plains of love and how from those elevated peaks therein lies a mirrored cave where sex sleeps waiting to be chosen by the pure, the un-pure, the sure and the unsure. When sex is woken prematurely she can become a fire burning out of control,…

Magic

“Words Are Magic. The Alpha and Omega-Bet of Enchantment. Through Whose Spell. We May Form. Heaven or Hell.” –  Ricardo Hanley Jr.

God is a Woman

“How may I fill you like you’ve enveloped me? How may I express that which has taken rest within my being, continuously waking me from reality, my deeper dream. When sleep departs from my living temple, all the parishioners within me, become still listeners, whom take record of all accounts received through my senses. My…
