Aug 18

Word Threads will celebrate our poets this coming August 30th, 2012 when we gather to celebrate our productive summer. Please join us and meet the poets at The Hathaway House, 310 S. Ashley, Ann Arbor, MI 48104 at 7pm.

It must be because the summer is soon to end and people scurry to finalize their plans for the fall that many of our poets are in reflection and have felt it necessary to make statements of purpose as well as statements of belief.

We hope you enjoy this week’s unusual offerings from Word Threads:

I LOVE
BY ELOY CAMACHO

I LOVE AS A FAMILY.
I LOVE MY MAMA
I LOVE MY FATHER
I HAVE DIFFERENT SORTS OF LOVE
I LOVE WHAT I EAT
WHEN I GIVE, I LOVE
I LOVE MY NAME
I LOVE EXACTLY
I LOVE MY FRIENDS
WHERE I AM, I LOVE
I LOVE MY FEELINGS FOR SOMEONE
I LOVE LIKE A BROTHER

“When You Hear”
by Eloy Camacho
WHEN YOU HEAR, YOU OFTEN FORGET.
BUT, WHEN YOU LISTEN, YOU REMEMBER
THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE

WHEN YOU LISTEN YOU KEEP IN MIND
GOOD MEMORIES FOEVER

GENERATIONS HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY
TO SHARE

I PRAY FOR – FOR GOOD WISHES AND BLESSINGS
FOR THE HOLY FAMILY

************
“Others”
by Eloy Camacho

OTHERS, SOMETIMES, ARE WEIRD AND STRANGE.
ITS HARD TO UNDERSTAND WHY. I THINK BECAUSE
RELIGION IS AT THE HEART OF EVERYONE AND EVERYONE
DOES NOT AGREE ABOUT GOD.

SOME OTHERS ARE VERY NEGATIVE AND SCREW OTHERS.
CRISIS DRIVEN ONES, SCARED ONES, AND EVEN HOMOPHOBICS

ARE PRISONERS BECAUSE THEY

CANNOT EXPRESS UNDER THE RULE OF ALL POWERFUL
ENFORCERS..

BUT, I STILL LOVE, NO MATTER WHAT, IN MY MIND AND HEART
EVERYBODY ARE BROTHERS ANS SISTERS. SOMETIMES
THEY HURT MY FEELINGS, BUT I’M STILL LOVING.

THE KNEW SEASON
BY JOHN LITTLE

THIS SHOULD BE THE SEASON OF WHICH ALL WILL SAY, THE WORLD WAS CHANGED.
WHERE ONCE WE JUST SAID ‘LIFE’S A BITCH’
NOW, ALL IS RENEWED, THE PAST BE DAMNED.

THE TIME REQUIRES A BRAND NEW SEASON WITH
CRAZINESS REPLACED BY REASON WHERE SUMMERS WARMTH

AND WINTERS COOL WILL MERGE AND FORGE A BRAND NEW RULE.
AND ANCIENT WRONGS WILL BE PUT RIGHT.
MOTHER NATURE HONORED IN ALL HER MIGHT.
