Today’s Black History Month Meditation: Saeed Jones

Mr. Jones launched into my view via Debbie Millman’s Design Matters podcast. His charm and ebullient manner shined brightly.

I find Saeed Jones’ work evocative and insightful. His meter and flow challenge me and my own work. I hope you find his work delightful too.

A haiku about seasons, change and a tad bit about love

This flower’s beauty

Transformative and quite brief

New life comes through change

This world burns with negative energy. Fear, distrust and rage so very of this world. I seek yo mollify that. I wonder if, perhaps, through poems and a bit of compassion, maybe I can help humanity grow its connection to itself. I see that as out species’ path to survival.

May each of you always find beauty and joy in life.
