Monday WRites 110

NUTMEG SPIKED
The colours of the morning are
Bird tweets and sweeping brooms so far
Add a wish for coffee sweetened
With a little ground nutmeg from a glass jar

SHE LIVED IN THAT SHOE?
She has bought a shoe store down the street
Kids all grown now, you are in for a treat
One's a baker, one a tailor, and a few, astronauts
She turned The Shoe into a museum, quite a feat

She has lived in meter, aged with rhyme and grace
With wit and humour thus, she kept her place
Outliving princesses of tresses let down in abandon
Bare cupboards are now for viewers, never in haste.

WARRIOR STEP
Though moon be full and bright, like orbs of one-eyed monsters to sight, and scent of jasmines ride the waves, of night's silence in heaves, still they chip, snip and carry; knowing, sensing, choosing the reds rather than the yellows. Step purposefully lass! they can pinch at your manicured toes, they aim to make you scream. They can steal your joy, but only, if you let them.

stilled evening breezes -
busy bachacs tote bits of
ixora petals

Of Angels and Monsters


Note
In T&T, we call the leaf cutter ants - Bachacs

Given seven pop culture quotes that have to do with angels, monsters or both. Rommy challenged us to pick one and create a poem based on it; the poem does not have to specifically be about an angel or a monster, but it must have some relation to at least one of the quotes.
I chose
“I’m the thing monsters have nightmares about.” – Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

POUI BLOOMING
In stable thirst of dry days you stood,
Stately green, quietly patient as you could ;
While gaily flew kites on windy sky,
There you, showing only green without a sigh;
Like monks stoic, in zen understanding;
Who would deem, your elation pending;
Ah, but gentle tears of heaven alone know,
How easily, such caring, would make you glow;
So lent her thus, gently, to soft drizzling night,
And you, to daylight blooming, awesome sight.

Monday WRites 109


SENTINELS
as rain sneaked in
charcoal grey of nighttime
silent sentinel Poui
drank to their full and then
they burst into bloom splendor

HOLES
The wall clock is round, but, the holes in the lacy table centerpiece were hooked in, with the art of crochet; my grandma taught me about chains and trebles; she slipped through the hole of existence, gone to the other side, quite a long time ago and I'm still looping these tiny bits of nuances together, lacing her memory into beautiful reminders.

THE BICYCLE
Two wheels
their spinning magic
and soft whirring

took me to kindergarten one day
the green dots
dotted a white cotton dress

My father rode his bike
in poverty
proud
way back then
