Expressions carefully coined phrases, gifted tools of the craft. Writers, poets, artists pour, from the jars of their earthen gift Water and oil onto the waiting hemispheres of the imagination. Courageously dipping the inscribed edges of their mortal pen – Its immortal tip dripping with the anointing oil flowing down, From the cloaks of theContinue reading “Tools Of The Craft – A Poem”
Deep in the far off farmer’s wooded hills, Hides the past, the shelved anvil of time. The anvil laid bare, its rusty shadow dim. No longer entangled in the chords of time, It re-fires steel memories of courage past, Casts shields of endurance, winged armor For flights of bravery into valor’s thunder.
Sunshine’s cool citrus elixir valet, Satiates reflection’s thirsty palate, Stirring up lemonade recollections, Singing cheerful summer ovations. Sometimes savory memories, pour Syrup into nuptial’s frosted pitcher, Shredding ambrosia lemon liaisons, Suited in wedded culinary creations.
Memories hop around the kettle of the mind like popping corn with the soul as the lid. The balm of quietude fuels the kernels rising swiftly from where they were hid. Popping aromatherapy scents the room with relaxing reminders; home is sanctuary’s solace. Movie night on the sofa of the soul ruminating on the crunchyContinue reading “Popping Corn – A Poem”
Block Eddie surveys the blog party; A deft figure in his sharpie emoji, Spins around with his stylish lady. Likes ‘n comments send Aphrodite, Square dancing with muse Athene, All do-si-do the tomes of creativity.
Soles shift in labored toil portraying diligent effort, Keyboard penmanship typed in mouse discomfort. All-nighters snuffer both ends of the burn candle, Wringing inner ear repeat the woodpecker’s anvil. Unrequited culinary affectations, quick bake flour Into one-sided sandwiches for brunch and dinner. Thirst’s parched whistle, the kettle’s dainty saucer, Harmony’s momentary breather, serenity’s sister. OasisContinue reading “Sapphire Lagoon – A Poem”
Ocean grey skies clouded noon day, Typical tropical rains on their way. Bus a lime by the corner with you, (bus a lime – to hang out with friends) Here comes the downpour doo doo. (doo doo or doux doux – my dear, darling) Pelting rain trow mango with a splash, (trow – throw, toss)Continue reading “Dancing Home – A Caribbean Style Poem”
Enraptured by sandy shores in memories’ swirling rampart, Of places alive in warm pastels of the mind’s daydream art, Alive today because ancestral prayers of faith did their part. Harnessing the bridled past into iron wheels of horsepower, Driving memory’s adventures to places remembered forever. Journeying beyond those familiar lands adding to their start, SoContinue reading “Legacy’s Cart – A Poem”
Sun and moon lumen the camera, Earthen tripod folding into a star. Shorelines f-stop tides maneuver, Shuttered colors court the ocular. Clouds peek into ‘the golden hour,’ Nature poses for her portraiture.
Like damselflies in summer, beautiful azure, you, Add green, blue tinctures to color spectrum’s hue. Your colorful compliments melt melancholy skies, Grey clouds of lament turn into ultramarine smiles. Hummingbirds, kingfishers rest from azure flight, Nesting in Gaia’s lapis lazuli sanctuaries of azurite.
