Poem: Gratefulness


By: Joi Maree Flowers

Impossibilities made possible
The mysteries of the unknown revealed
Blindness unveiled
For lost sight to become clear

Parched mouths quenched of their thirst
Hungered stomachs fed to their full
Closed doors open to present
The fruit of faithful prayers

Unclothed bodies covered
Exposed homes given sheltered
Scattered pieces put together
To complete the unfinished picture


To be grateful for

Poem: The Peace After

 The Peace After

By: Joi Maree Flowers

So silent
The peace

After the roar of the thunder
Rumbled the floor below my stand
After the rain from above
Drenched my flesh

After the disturbance
Finally passed

The silhouette of peace
Draped me like an Autumn's wind

Calming my soul

  To heal me

Poem: She Said

She Said

By Joi Maree Flowers

Those words which were spoken into life
By way of a dream that once seemed unattainable

Those actions which were made through determination
Despite loud whispers of dispute that taunted progression

The voice once silenced
By fear and procrastination
By built walls
And by laughing faces

Spoke those words of revelation

Poem: Say


By : Joi Maree Flowers

Say you love me
Like the first time
From a sincere heart
And a confident mind

Say it
Like yesterday
When forever was a promise
And recited vows co-signed it

Say it
A thousand times
With little notes
And "just because" sentiments

Say it
Like no one knows
So everyone can hear

Say it
Like it once was said
Before today
Like that moment in the beginning

Poem: Here


By: Joi Maree Flowers

I feel his kisses
Tickle the nap of my neck
When the wind blows

I hear his voice
Whisper in my ear
Those favorite words of Amore

I see his smile
In the brightness of the sun
As it rises above the ocean's waves

I see him
Every where I go
Even when from me he's far away

My love
