Diamonds in the Ruff
Diamonds, a girls’ best friend
Loves of today
Loves of yesterday
Love still to come
Breathe quiet now
Hear the hum
Each subtle wave
Each crashing wave
On the horizon
The mother load.

Are free spirits, ever, truly free?
Must always a string be attached, playing with lives like a marionette.?.
My dog, the being that keeps me going, on days that are most of a challenge…
Many do not understand, cannot comprehend, the mind of a genius… Best explained by Don McLean… “Vincent”
Each year closing in, gets darker and darker, even those who shine the most can have their lights dimmed ~ for then can we truly have hope?
Too many forces working against… sincerity of spiritual, creative beings. Persevere? Why bother – in the end, it all gets crushed again – every dream, every wish, every moment of happiness, stolen…
Understanding the mind of great ones like late and great Robin Williams… Making the sad choice to disappear into a dark abyss… For one can only get back up and dust themselves off so many times…
Be kind to thy neighbour, have their back,
For if not you, then, who will?
In memory of the late Maya Angelou, I have decided to repost and share the following poem I wrote last Spring… Thank you Ms. Maya Angelou, for being such an inspiration and for leaving behind a lasting legacy of goodness…
CYCLES OF LIFE ~ A POEM BY JO MARTINEZ
Ashes to ashes,
Dust to dust,
On the other side now,
Miss you so much,
Death, a part of life,
Life, a part of death,
Born to this world,
Grew over time,
Held your hand,
Much love gained,
No more pain,
Mourning, grieving, sorrow, loss,
Cycles of life,
Change in the wind,
Memories, laughter, madness, tears,
Thank you for being there through all our yesteryears.

How does a writer survive the insanity of their own mind?
Or, a creative genius, how do they keep the flow?
Push on through
Let magic fill your soul.
