"Piccolo Girl"

September 30, 2019

This poetic sonnet is an expression of how proud of a Poppa I am. My youngest daughter, Julia Elizabeth, started playing music at 4 and 5 years old. She first started taking piano lessons with Shirley (deceased, 2009) and Rise' Joiner and subsequently began playing the flute in the 7th grade. While in the 8th grade she performed in the High School show band, and in the interim she began to learn how to play English hand bells. Four years of High School Marching band and competitions she ran track and cross country simultaneously. She eventually received a band scholarship and academic scholarship at Texas Southern University's Ocean of Soul Marching band playing the piccolo, not to mention being in concert and symphony band as well. She was dubbed Piccolo Girl by members of the football team, yet everyone calls her "JuJu," 


Piccolo Girl


Piccolo Girl, sharing her musical notes with the world

Sending out melodic notes like a string of fine jewelry pearls

Amidst an "Ocean" of musical brass and wood instruments

Those high pitched-tones are something like Heaven sent


Melodic tones with an angelic flavor taking flight with wings

Give me a moment, this musical experience, that, I must savor

Your unique audible qualities are like no other

I  love the way you march and strut with your Maroon and Gray Sisters and Brothers


Piccolo Girl, playing scales and shrills and toots

With sounds that are an octave higher than an ordinary flute

When it comes to music you're never done

You're the who seems to have infinite qualities and perpetual fun


Play on, Piccolo Girl, keep playing until you're done

Because of all the sounds in the "Ocean," I only hear just one

Daddy's "Piccolo Girl." 


JuJu is also featred playing the piccolo on the Album "Powerful Poets" on track #5 "Piccolo Girl" it can be Downloaded or streamed on all the platforms. It can also be viewed on YouTube

"Twins"

09/16/2019

Twins are an enigma of our human society, they usually keep the general public in awe. My first children were twins, where as, one of them died at two (2) years old. I have many fond memories of how they helped and depended on one another in the growth and development phase of life on Earth, from crawling to walking, climbing out of the crib and one being neat while eating and the other being a messy eater.  There are two types of twins, monozygotic twins (Identical) sharing the same gestational sac, and di-zygotic twins (Fraternal) having separate sacs. Twins are common in my family, I have twin Nephews, and 2 sets of twin great Nieces. Our society still remain in awe of this phenomenon even though twins have become more common. This poem piece addresses the twining phenomenon. 

Twins

Like the symbol and sign of a Gemini

Twins being as a shared Godhood

Traveling in twain, a phenomenon not well understood

Twins like the Gemini, for months a shared space in which they did abide


Twins are expressed as a separation of an egg in embryology 

Twins are an enigma, a phenomenon of pro-creative biology

Twins are not a curse, but a blessing in a unique histology

Twins carry a number in the doctrine of numerology


Twins are energetic, twins are cunning and clever,

Twins are creative in all that they endeavor

Twins reign in that special place in my heart

Twins are dear to me, it is with twins I have a personal affinity


Twins symbolizes the number two (2), the unity of different entities

Twins seeks to end separateness bringing about peace and a greater good for humanity


Check out the book Drops of Revelation: Sonnets and see the twin photos, enjoy.
