SUSURRATION

The rainbow was humming a soft susurration
When i looked to the ixora
There was no bee

The rainbow was humming a soft susurration
When i looked to the sky
Morning was still in the making

The rainbow was humming a soft susurration
Grey clouds were folding themselves
Letting curtains of azure show

The rainbow was humming a soft susurration
when i looked to her band of colour
She smiled vanishing slowly

DANDELION
In a chiaroscuro of shapes your hand,
Pledging a bouquet so winsome and,
Bursting with this gift desire of miles,
Of weightless flights to carve smiles,
On the moon or hearts aflame with,

The wonder of magical dreams;
Formless shadows part the streams,
Of night bringing to day time,
Sweet senses with changes in clime,
Passing through asteroids in orbit;

Morning sun delights her kisses,
Where baskets carried by their misses,
Pluck the fragrance of radiant blooms;
An array of colours, array of plumes,
And there among them waning dandelions.

WOUNDED LOVE
Roses, roses rosebud years
bloomed in passion unfurled
in creative patterns of light

one day when overcast clouds
wept in jealous spasms
of blinding rain pour

that's when darkness crept in
on tail of dragon storm
ouch!

for roses long of stem
like day and days covet by another
pricked blood from wounded love

HEARTS OF GREEN
i colour my heart green for love
of Planet Earth where trees leaf
in chlorophyll choirs high above
bird song painting greyscale dawn
lifting sleepy hearts green for love

offerings steep newness and option
tweeting songs shrill and somber of
cathedrals sanctifying daylight hours
azure to sky emerald to ocean thereof
wishing peace and every harmonic hue
i'll wear my heart colour green for love

Jouvert
birds songs are dulled
the raucous music trucks
draw sunshine too in revellery

WINDING
To the mouse with four tiny feet
The stairway is its eternity.
Not to be encumbered of numbers
Nor to be absorbed of time

The stairway; is an existence
Not of direction
Nor of inclination
The stairway is just that

Elegant and winding to human feet
Treading through the history of an era

Or the challenge of an ancient
Dulled by mutation of anatomy

The stairway remains the cliche
With its creaks and winding ways.
