Poem: Let The Singer Sang

Let The Singer Sang

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Let this child sing her song
We didn't come all this way to not hear her story be told
Put down that purse
Sit back in your chair
Give that girl some respect
And show her that you care

She may not blow like Aretha
She may not feel like Mary
She probably can't scat like Sarah
But at least there's a tune she can carry

She aint got the blues like Billie
And not close as pretty as Lena
But that girl got a song to sang
So let her sang it ok

Poem: Love You I Do

Love You I Do

(For Felton)

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Who was given the key
To unlock the door to my heart
To enter for a permanent stay

Whose kisses touches my lips
A warmth felt like
A Summer's day in June

Whose smile brings peace
To a rather rough day
That assures me, "Baby it's ok"

Poem: Fish n Grits

Fish n Grits

By: Joi Maree Flowers

I must be home
I smell Mama's famous biscuits cooking in the stove
Can't nobody tell me
Aint no better place to be than home

I dare you to show
Where else can you get
The best food for the soul

And Diners try
But it doesn't compare to home

Poem: Dancing In The Rain

Dancing In The Rain

By: Joi Maree Flowers

Twirling around to the beat of my mind's music
Swaying side to side to its sensual rhythm
This joy I feel can not be held in
So I just dance
And dance some more

Not even worried about the water drops from above
That fall upon me heavy

I just keep dancing
And dancing some more

Until the song ends
And inside where it's warm I return

Poem: Flowers For The Lady

Flowers For The Lady
(For Mama)

By: Joi Maree Flowers

She's strong
She's wise
She's fights the Wars
And sees victory on her side

Her miracle child
She comforts
And heals with the touch of her hand
Such the way of a Mother

Her life
She's lives
Given the position
Bestowed upon her
