Morning Coffee: Poet Melissa Fry Beasley & Artist Ken O'Neill

Morning Coffee by Ken O’Neill

Morning Coffee

Sun diffuses through window

Steam softly hits skin

Deer quietly wander

Beneath large oaks

Squirrels dizzy with play

Birds sing songs of welcome

To this new day

Not thinking about cut off notices

Loose change

Between cushions of the couch

Not carrying the pain of generations

Hunger of nations

Nor letters of eviction

Pink slips in economies

That have always been poor

Gathering cans like children lost to the system

From others who have to be drunk

Or high just to get by

Looking out from luxury

Across plush

Manicured yards and wives

It is easy

Not to think

Like the rest of us.

… and how about an Afternoon Tea? Painting by Ken O’Neill

Melissa Fry Beasley is a Humanistic poet of Cherokee origin, who resides in Oklahoma . Through the written and spoken word, she examines the gap between the ideal and the reality involved in living in the world during this time. Her work is both personal and subjective, yet she does not turn aside from the political and social issues of her environment. She is a woman who seeks to express her individual perspective and needs while accepting the diversity involved in questions of gender, race and culture. Melissa believes that change is necessary and deploys her writing to reflect her personal experience in the wider social and political context. You can find her work in print and online in Indian Country Today Media Network, Native News Today, The Native American Encyclopedia, FirstPeople.Us, Working Effectively With Aboriginal People, Churn Magazine, Big River Poetry Review, Enhance Magazine, A&U Magazine, and many others. She has two chapbooks forthcoming. " When I admire the wonders of a sunset or the beauty of the moon, my soul expands in the worship of the creator." Mahatma Gandhi " They won't break me because the desire for freedom, and the freedom of the people, is in my heart. The day will dawn when all the people of will have the desire for freedom to show. It is then that we will see the rising of the moon." Bobby Sands
