Hearts of the Ocean

Hearts of the Ocean-Signature

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

That sound

Magic flows

Each subtle wave

Each crashing wave

Beauty

Bliss

Hit

Or

Miss

On the horizon

Titanic

Blue diamond

The mother load.

Haiku For 2015

Breathing in goodness

Let go of what’s not working

Embrace happiness!

A Poem for Robin Williams?

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 It to Win It

In it to win it,

Ain’t no other way…

 

In it to win it,

Won’t be led astray…

 

In it to win it,

Some days,

It’s tough to be “gay”…

 

In it to win it,

Despite what they may say…

 

In it to win it,

There ain’t no other way.

IN MEMORY OF MAYA ANGELOU…

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,

Traverse,

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.

Pathways

 

Hidden from no one.

Only from self.

 

Be true.

Be true..

Be true…

 

Messages.

Clarity.

Coming back to find you.

Untitled

How does a writer survive the insanity of their own mind?

Or, a creative genius, how do they keep the flow?

Push on through

Resonate

Let magic fill your soul.
