A Loyal Companion

Poem By Almedia Knight Oliver

You've been with me all the days of my life:
A loyal friend, the part of me about which
it may seem I could care less:

I Stub your little toes, I scream, but curse you
I Crack your heels and flip-flops are left out
I stressed myself out and make you sweat and stink.
Nevertheless, you've remain a loyal friend when we go
outside... you use shoes as cover to keep me from hurt,
protecting me from shit and stuff where ever it lay.
I am grateful to you for being a loyal companion and
staying on your toes; balancing me whether standing or
walking, and day after day carrying my heavy loads.
You're even a friend of my words when they refer to
measurement and personify some things when I speak.
Even use music to keep time when dancing on my feet
use verse meter for rhythm in my poems, and even
"A foot in [my] one's mouth."

From this day forward, I will allow you to be 's"footloose and fancy
free"or unshackled to do and go where you want, dance and kick up
your heel, and I will always treat you with loving kindness...

Thanks Dr. Stuto for helping me understand the value of my
beautiful feet "A Loyal Companion."

Love is like a wild wind
Am I just a howling wildness?
or maybe a howling triumph!

Evening's Solitude

In evening's solitude sipping a glass of wine, or
maybe two, and listening to Roberta's love songs
Being spirited away dizzily to dream land

The Power Of Love

Early on: the radiance morning sun
infusing space and exposing me unbound
I lay beside him, marveling aura waltzing
behind my eyelids

A Loving Partner

We found each other under the evening sky
the moon sat directly over our heads and sent
tidal waves that made our hearts bulge with love.

Peering into my mind
Look at what I see!

A Special Friend

Your friendship likens the sun-
it lights up the world

Your friendship likens a fruit-
