Popping Corn – A Poem

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”

Sapphire Lagoon – A Poem

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”

Dancing Home – A Caribbean Style 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”

Like Damselflies in Summer – A Poem

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.

Story Telling – A Poem

Distant story telling voices recorded in ancient sand, Formed stone tablets to strengthen memory’s strand. Inscribed written stories the hieroglyphs of antiquity, Of everyday life in pre-millennial times in perpetuity. Now, ultra-modernity traces stories in silicone’s hand, On ‘new’ tablets etched by the very same ancient sand.

Rare Purple Rose – A Poem

Sunset unwraps the sky into a rare purple rose. The pending promissory note of a restful repose. How lucky the ancient woods and sequoia forest, What eons of sunsets has its members witnessed. What mystery stories and legends could they relay, Perhaps waving through the growth of the canopy, To catch the Sun as sheContinue reading “Rare Purple Rose – A Poem”

Manna from the skies – A Poem

What if green beans were pistachio ice-cream in disguise. Parsnips were poutine – that saucy staple with french fries. Cauliflower was super-sized cotton candy on the 4th of July. Radishes were popsicles with Mac and cheese pizza surprise. Brussels sprouts were popcorn, broccoli were cup cake pies. Perhaps children world-wide might applaud such a surprise,Continue reading “Manna from the skies – A Poem”
