May a good reputation precede you

With success and laughter as companions.

I hope all obstacles are broken through

And that you’re named among true champions.

I pray that all you love will love you back

And that you forgive the wrong others do.

Learn life’s lessons; the light shines through the crack.

Sometimes it will be painful or brand new.

Don’t miss opportunities presented.

May newfound things bring out your inner child.

Please guard yourself against the demented.

Moderation is key; don’t go buck-wild!

Yesterday is gone; your slate is now clean.

I wish you the best for 2014!

Back to Life and Hard Lessons Learned

Posted by tpegonline on October 4, 2013

In the early 90’s when I was a college student, Arsenio Hall was part of my daily routine. I went to classes at St. John’s University in Jamaica (Queens, NY), went to work part-time at a prominent law firm based in Midtown Manhattan, then came home and made sure to watch The Arsenio Hall Show each night before going to sleep. His show ended rather abruptly without a clear reason as to why. Arsenio is back and after I saw the below interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, I became an even bigger fan than I was before.

"Celebrity Apprentice" Live Finale

Listen to the pearls of wisdom Arsenio shares in this interview and be inspired.

I like what he said about adversity: “You learn a lot about the people around you.”

Truer words have not been spoken.

Let me know your thoughts on this video. Thanks.

Who is my target audience?

Posted by tpegonline on September 1, 2013

That is an easy question to answer. My romantic/erotic poems and short stories are written for Black and Hispanic women ages 30 and up. Of course, I hope that women of any color, ethnicity or age like my poetry, but it is written specifically for women in the aforementioned demographics.

What prompted me to post this is that some guys have been critical of my poetry as of late but quite frankly, I don’t write the poems for them. Plus, they don’t write poetry; they have no body of work. It is always easy to criticize but not so easy to produce art. I’m publishing my work and putting it here for the world to see and give a thumbs up and thumbs down. It is what it is. But again, my romantic/erotic poems and short stories are written for Black and Hispanic women ages 30 and up.

Some will like my work, and some will not. That is the risk artists are confronted with when they “come out of the closet” as an artist and share their work publicly. I will do my best to keep my audience engaged and entertained. My “poetic audio soap opera,” Back In Love Again, is still in production and will be released in 2014. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks.

Is It REALLY Real?

Posted by tpegonline on June 1, 2013

I was chatting with a good friend the other day about how people don’t critically analyze or think about things before they say something or take action. This 17-part haiku chain is my advice in poem about how to use the scientific method to figure things out.

Image

Don’t preach what you think.
Only preach about what is known.
All else is guessing.

Do not confuse what
you are told by others with
actual facts, friend.

Human history
is composed of five parts. You
need all five for sure.

If you are missing
one or more element, you
cannot erase doubt.

PEOPLE are the first
ingredient. Specific
names and titles, please.

Next comes DATES. When did
this person live? During what
period of time?

What happened? Was there
some notable EVENTS? Why
is it important?

Where was this? What PLACES?
The milieu can help put things
in proper context.

Where’s the EVIDENCE?
Without evidence, there can
be no argument.

Perhaps you’ll provide
documentation, portraits,
or a photograph.

Ancient artifacts?
Audio recordings or
video footage?

If you claim a thing
to be the truth, make sure
to present your proof.

These are the rules of
evidence. All you have to
do is be a child.

“A child shall lead them.”
“You must be born again.” Be
curious. Inquire.

Ask questions like What?
Who? Where When? Why?
and How? That’s
how to get answers.

Be critical in
thinking and analysis.
Don’t go on blind faith.

Research your subject.
Due diligence let’s you know.
Is it REALLY real?

The Finest Treasure That Nature Has Made

Happy Mothers Day 2013!I hope that you enjoy this poem and share it with all of the mothers you know and love.

“The Finest Treasure That Nature Has Made”

© 2013 Tyrone Turner

The first woman to tell a child to not worry and to do not be afraid.
The woman who works all day then cleans up after the kids like a maid.
The woman who watched over the children as they slept and played.

A woman who gives so much to children but never gets paid.
The woman who always protected her kids from the heat of life by providing shade.
You’re a true gem that one would never trade.

To know your love is as refreshing as a tall, cool glass of lemonade.
You’ll always be loved and are still greeted with child-like starry eyes by grown children whose hair has grayed.
I hope that you like the below picture called “Courage” by Thomas Kinkade.

Image

The word courage comes to mind is because you make the grade.
She who always keeps it real while others live a masquerade.
As a mother, you’re surely the finest treasure that nature has made.

See you next lifetime

Posted by tpegonline on December 16, 2011

This art piece is called Afterglow, by Alonzo Adams

“See You Next Lifetime”
By Tyrone Turner

You got your man and I got my lady.

There is fiery passion between us but we don’t want to be shady.

Your husband is a good husband and my wife is a good wife.

He’s a good father and she’s a good mother so let’s not cause strife.

We love our children. They are the apples of our eyes.

Acting on our emotions would be very reckless and not at all wise.

I can’t do anything but imagine how it could be.

Taking on the world. Doing our thing. Just you and me.

Making love to you on a beach in Barbados during a summer sun shower.

Looking over Paris at night from the Eiffel Tower.

Camping in the desert next to the Grand Canyon while watching the sun rise in east.

Being on safari in South Africa marveling at all of the regal beasts.

Dancing the night way in New Orleans while getting drunk off shots.

Trekking the Andes mountains where the natives teach us how to mold clay pots.

Countless nights at home with you and our children watching movies and talking about things that happened in our day.

People are treasures and the finest things in life doesn’t require us to pay.

Working out together in our home gym working up a good sweat.

Going on shopping trips every month because we don’t have any debt.

Kissing your lips and pulling your hair.

Nibbling on your neck while giving you a passionate stare.

Rubbing you down with warm body oils and while feeding you ice cream.

Making passionate love to you where we both climax and scream.

Lying there together naked glowing with after-sex sweat.

Falling off to sleep with smiles on our faces knowing we’re each other’s pet.

I hope reincarnation is real because I want a chance to be with you one day.

I’m at a loss of words – there isn’t much more I can say.

Thinking about being with you is like being thirsty for a tall, cool drink with a twist of lime.

We can’t do it now, baby, but like Erykah sang, “See You Next Lifetime.”

Forces of Nature

Posted by tpegonline on December 13, 2011

Forces of Nature
by Tyrone Turner
Copyright 2011

This poem is a series of 10 haiku poems that are strung together in a series to tell a story. According to Dictionary.com, a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons; or a poem written in this form. This poem introduces the reader to some gods of Yoruba/Santeria/Voodoo.

Santeria, Yoruba, Voodoo and related religions are very, very misunderstood. It is not, in my opinion, “the Devil’s work.” I’ll leave it at that but I encourage you to do your own research. Personally, I respect people for whatever they may believe – as long as whatever it is that promotes good moral conduct and the brotherhood of man.

This poem has 10 verses – 10 haiku tied together to tell a story/present a message.

Do not be afraid.
It’s not devil stuff.
It’s what’s around us.

Hollywood shows us
scary things. Sacrifices,
murders, and torture.

Olódùmarè
created each one of usl.
All praises are due.

Ellegua is a
trickster, but protects your house.
Divine messenger.

Obatala is
the king of the white cloth. He
creates man and land.

Oshun is the queen
of love, intimacy, wealth,
and diplomacy.

Yemanja. Mother
and protector of children.
She is the ocean.

Changó is the god
of lighting, thunder and fire.
He’s a warrior.

Again, they are us
and we are them. We’re of the
elements of earth.

They are all around
Us. Above, below – all sides.
Forces of nature.

  2. Create an audio book version – have all 31 poems read with music and sometimes vocals in the background
  3. A short film featuring 10 of the poems

To continue to give you a sample of some of the poems that will be featured in the short film, check this out.

Oh boy, he’s in deep now…

“Your Bed Covers” (2 minutes, 29 seconds)

Click here to listen…

You have no one to shield you or keep you warm from the harshness of this cold, cruel world.

Get in bed, baby. I’ll wrap you tightly and keep you warm all over.

You embrace me and begin to pull me up over your sexy body.

First you pull me up over your tiny, pedicured feet than I brush against your plump calves and tender knees.

Next is your steamy, creamy thights and I hover over the gat to paradise where I smell the sweet nectar of womanhood.

It is sucha a joy to glide across your flat stomach because I just love your fuzzy navel!

I am approaching your tasty mouthfulls and as I climb your firm breasts and reach their chocolately peaks I awe at your beautiful face that lies in the horizon.

Just lay back and relax, lover. I’m here now and you don’t have to worry about a damn thing.

Hold me tight because I want to be close to you. Every hour. Every minute. Every second.

We can forever be lovers. Just lay down and I’ll be your bed covers.

######################

“Girl, You’re Simply Incredible” (3 minutes, 4 seconds)

Click here to listen…

Thoughts of you are like a gentle Caribbean breeze that blows across my mind.

Other times I reminisce about our passionate love-making that can be as strong as a hurricane and leaves us immersed in ecstasy as if were overtaken by a tidal wave of pleasure.

I love the way you giggle and the way your body jerks when I trace your tattoos with my tongue and rub you down with warm body oil.

I have a sweet tooth for you because you sho nuff got goody-good candy.

I enjoy you so. Your thick legs and all of the voluptuous plumpness that accents your womanhood.

As physically attracted as I am to you that is not what has kept me coming back.

The true turn-on is your courage in the face of adversity and the playfulness and vulnerability in your eyes.

Life happens everyday to everybody, but you don’t look for excuses to be unfair or to cause pain to others.

You bend but you don’t break.

You retain your calm and walk through life with your head held high.

People depend on you and you rise to the occasion time and time again.

Such a young woman with such a mature soul.

I am very impressed, proud of and inspired by you.

Your wise counsel and example have been a blessing to me.

When we have our passion parties – you know, our sensual escapes, I want to please you over, and over, and over again.

You do so much for others, you should be taken care of.

You earned it and you definitely deserve it.

I am at your erotic disposal.

Do with me as you will and I will do to you as you desire.

Mature, strong, confident, discreet, soft warm, melodic, fragrant and edible.

Baby girl, you’re simply incredible!
