The Kingdom is Here

Diamond Mike Watson 


I lie on my back
A leaf falls gently on my lips
I feel the breeze
For once I am alive

I am here
Cause you are there
And this is this
Cause that is that

There is nothing I can do
For I am only an image of you
The kingdom is here

He found his birth family 35 years later. Then he helped them find a ‘vanished’ sister.

Arika Herron, Indianapolis Star Published 5:14 p.m. ET Aug. 24, 2019. https://www.indystar.com/story/news/2019/08/24/adopted-indianapolis-man-helps-birth-family-find-vanished-sister-muncie/2087285001/\ Everyone in “Diamond” Mike Watson’s life told him he should give up.

Today I filed a missing persons report for my sister, Debra Kay. It appears there was never such a report filed since she vanished as a child. This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]

    yes, the kingdom is here. I love this poem.
    Thank you for following my blog. I hope you enjoy our travel ramblings, both inner and outer.
    Jewellery is not my thing, and I can’t listen to your music yet because we are currently in Laos and internet speed is slow. However….. I love all the quotes, and your philosophy of positive energy, and giving back.

    That leaf looks like a pair of lips (duh! I’m sure). I love it!

      That is exactly what I was thinking… it looks like a pair of giant floating red lips.
