October First


October first

Wore blue memories

Of a summer sky

As she trailed 

The forest floor

Leaving a crisp 

Autumn scent

Soul Funk Crusader

Here is a little funk for the evening folks…have a good night, but before you go say to yourself…

“When I leave a room, it’s gonna be footprints of funk wherever I stepped, because I’m a soul funk crusader.” (Big Boi)

…..and remember your essence! Then…

“Put a glide in your stride, a dip in yo’ hip and come on up to the mothership.” (George Clinton)
