Love Poems Read By Lady G: Take A Look At Yourself

Love is complicated! Check out this raw and vulnerable piece written by my dear Musical Twin, T. Wayne at ajoyfulprocess

A Joyful Process

Another poem. I hope you like it. Just some things I had been thinking about and decided to put them down.

Before you unleash

Your threats and invectives

Your taunts and snide remarks

Your insults and character slices

Before you point

At my failings and deficiencies

At my values and opinions

At my idiosyncrasies and habits

Before you rail

About my choices and comments

About my abilities or lack thereof

About my current situation or anything about me—

Turn around.

Take a look in the mirror.

Search your mind, soul and psyche.

Focus on your own imperfections, cracks and vulnerabilities.

My faults, shortcomings and flaws belong to me.

They are for me to work on, not for you to criticize.

Far too much time is spent tearing people down.

For once, lift them up.

Written about a recent situation I have had to deal with…

The Flowering Vine: She Needed Me…

Here’s a reading of a piece that I wrote for the “Flowering Vine” series. It is about “love.”

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Stormed

And she seethed

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Sought

And she stalked

She wanted him

BUT he wanted me

So she

Schemed

And she steamed

She wanted him

So she needed me

to be

Silenced

Sequestered

Severed

And sliced

Eternally

encased

And placed…

out of sight.

For Aunt Elvy’s daughter, Alberta, (Mother’s dear first cousin and friend), reportedly murdered by a jealous rival.

Love Poems Read By Lady G: Present Distance

IMG_3428

Please enjoy this “fearlessly authentic” piece written by one of my dear sisters, Michelle.

 Present Distance

I have learned not to tell him my frustrations with loneliness

I am learning to keep singed pieces of my heart unheard

I am learning to miss him while letting parts of me leave

My pain is not due to him not being here, being present

My pain intensifies in waves of want…of what has not happened

What if I am not able to love him—here; In this space?

What if I am not able to love him in these orchestrated phases of time

Brown skin to Brown Skin, lips curving to meet,

Tongues enveloping touch, taste, texture and sound….

There is no meeting of the minds —He has yet to hear my heart

I’ve longed for the moments he is totally mine and

Yet yearn for the time our hearts will meet….

Presently Distanced

Have Lady G Read YOUR Love Poem!

love-you-2198772_1280.png

Most of you guys know me by way of ALL OF the words that I string together on this blog.

However, I have often been told that I have a very nice speaking voice.

In fact, my blogging wonder twin, T Wayne, at A Joyful Process once described my voice as dulcet toned.

YAAASSS baby!

I’ve also gotten similar comments about my voice from my “sisters” Michelle at Me, Intimately worded and Dr. K.E. Garland at Kwoted.

Don’t believe me?

The Official Story of Lady Gwin aka Lady G

img_3209

House of Mathilda….

LOL!!!

More about that later!

*********

Admittedly, I’ve fancied myself as a “royal” of sorts since about 1981.

During that time, my mother used to refer to me as Lady Di because she clearly thought that I regarded her as a servant!

But don’t all children tend to see their mothers in that way?

Anyway, at that time, one of my favorite singers was Teena Marie who also used the title “Lady” …as in Lady T.

Well…

With both of these things in mind, I just ran with it and started doodling the name Lady G.

And, with that, Lady G was “born.”

Now…

After starting this blog, I was fortunate enough to meet a whole new group of wonderful friends.

One of these included an awesome writer by the name of R J Llewellyn.  Most of you guys may know him as “Roger” or “Woebegone but Hopeful”—he is the founder and chief writer for his own blog, Heroically Bad Writer….which is ironic because he is anything but.  He also has a couple of really good books on Amazon!

Anyway, I became a huge fan of his uproarious series, “A True History of These Isles”, which retells the history of The United Kingdom.

That said, I often joked with him about the many historic characters that were featured.

One set of characters, in particular, included a couple of royals named Mathilda.

To me, they were sooooo badass!

When I told Roger that, he responded that I embodied that same spirit of badassity!

LOL!

Of course, after a good laugh, Roger started referring to me as Lady G or Lady Gwin, House of Mathilda or Matilda!

Either spelling is acceptable.

Now you know!

No doubt, that’s a brief synopsis of events, but here is the PROCLAMATION with a preface,  as written by RJ Llewellyn:

scroll-152864_640

My research when writing my two volumes of ‘The History of These Isles’ led me to conclude that whereas many folk impacted upon the history of these isles, not enough consideration was given to the ‘Age of the Matildas’

This period took place during the reign of Stephen I (1092/6 – 25 October 1154), when his right to the throne was contested by the daughter of his predecessor Henry I, she being Empress Matilda.

A great struggle took place, Matilda being a stalwart and tough foe. When Stephen was captured his rule was kept in place by his equally determined wife Matilda of Boulogne. Thus did these two strong women hold the reigns of powers for some time and made a more constructive effort than the men who just hit each other and the peasants.

It should also be noted that the powerful King David I of Scotland was married to Matilda of Huntingdon (one of her children becoming a saint).

This writer concludes it is undeniable these were women of striking character and ability.

Thus when considering the scope in depth of achievements in Life of Family, Profession and Blog, the Lady Gwin of Best Blog it must be stated by this historian The Lady Gwin has displayed similar qualities of determination, skill and forbearance, added to which she has a sense of humour, possibly lacking in these aforementioned formidable ladies.
Therefore by the powers vested in me as an Historian it is with all solemnity and gladness that I, Roger Jacob, writing as R J Llewellyn, do this day 19th December in the year 2018 do proclaim as follows:
From the date of The Lady Gwin of Best Blog’s 50th Birthday, let it be known she may with all truth and dignity bear the title Lady Gwin; Honour’d Lady of the House of Matildas (And Mathildas) by proclamation and efforts. And from that date bear herself as a true Matilda or Mathilda as she so see fit.

Laudo et congratulor.

50th Birthday Greetings for Lady G

img_3254
Lady G caught off guard!

So…yeah…I turned 50 this week and I don’t feel a day over 49.

Pa-dum-pump!

LOL!

Anyway, I thought I would share some of the more interesting birthday greetings.

To be more specific, I received greetings in Spanish from my Puerto Rican chica and a “traditional birthday greeting” from an awesome “Kiwi” native to New Zealand.  By the way, the second video looks sideways but it plays normally once you click it!

I also had a good old Southern Happy Birthday from a Girl Raised In The South (GRITS).

Check them out:

 

 

 

Stay tuned tomorrow for the Official Story of Lady G from the House of Mathilda, as told by that dashing Welshman, Roger Jacob, writing as R J Llewellyn aka Woebegone but Hopeful.

You can find “Roger” at his blog, Heroically Bad Writer.  Click HERE to get THERE.

Love and light

Let’s chat in comments!

 

A Charming Southern Cottage in Augusta

Lady G of Seattle at a cottage in Summerville (Augusta, GA)

Salutations!

After last week’s post about my visit home, I got a lot of questions from people who were much too chicken to post a comment on the blog, asking about the accomodations in Augusta.

Well, basically, my dear friend, Lady G of Seattle, rented an Airbnb during the holidays and I must say that she stumbled upon a hidden GEM!

To be specific, this darling little cottage was nestled in a tony section of Augusta known as Summerville.

Now…

If you are a fan of the idea of Southern class, grace, charm, civility and hospitality, this type of place will DEFINITELY exceed your expectations!

According to Lady G of Seattle, the host at this cottage, Mr. —….don’t ask me his name…was the penultimate proprietor! She shared that his main goal was to ensure that all of his guest’s needs were promptly met.

Indeed, this visit was a much needed positive shift away from a world filled with folks hell-bent on hatred and destruction!

And so…

If you’re ever in Augusta, consider staying at a Summerville cottage like this one.

They are absolutely approved and endorsed by the Ladies G!

Love and light,

LadyG 😘💋💋  Don’t forget to like, follow and share!
