I am very excited to officially announce my book of poetry is now available. BEAUTIFULLY NAKED. AT LAST., is a labor of love that evolved out of necessity but inadvertently extracted. Here are excerpts from each chapter. The first chapter, NAKED., begins with recognition of deep struggle. The second chapter, BEAUTIFUL, moves through transitional hope. The last chapter, AT LAST., perseveres to eventual promise.

To order go to the BOOKS page and click the BUY NOW button.

Go ahead and walk on by.

See if I care!

I’m invisible anyway as you trip on my cane.

I cry until I can’t breath.

I choke on my own tongue.

Oh great, here I go again bleeding uncontrollably and missing all the fun.

No bandaid can cover the area of the Grand Canyon.

So I expose the wound in hopes that it will heal.

Maybe it will dry up and seal the deal.

You remember that deal?

The one where you don’t feel.

New eyes are born naturally as your soul is renewed. So few share your view and so few move to your groove. You are no fool for that groove is your move. A move so smooth - a move so blue - a move so bold - a move so, so cool. Say goodbye to those old haunts that hold your hand too tight. Break away and run like the wind into that bright, white light. Don’t break your cadence whatever you do for you will climb and climb to a brave new height.

Suddenly your surroundings are vivid and accepting saying, see me, taste me, speak to me, trust me. Then your instinct of fear just floats out with the old and the beauty of love blows in with the new.


SCOOP YOU UP By Lisa Avery

Page 63

I want to just scoop you up and take you away. Away from all the fray. You look at me like I’m from Mars. As I ponder the idea from behind your bars. You know you’re free as free can be. And there is absolutely no fee - no fee to be with me. Because love comes with no strings, no bling and is definitely not a fling. The beauty is that love is unconditional, non-apparitional, truthful and wise. Love sets you free...that’ll be two scoops please!
