Monday WRites 98



HAPPY CARNIVAL MONDAY T&T

HIGH FIVE
Pale blue skies, clearing into morning. Green trees and masqueraders wearing the colour: jouvert-morning-fun. Its Monday of Carnival 2017. I talk to a jouvert masquerader, happily, covered in mud and paint. Why am i not in the band? Why am i standing at the corner? Been there done that. She gives me a high five and continues dancing away to catch up with the rest of the band.

KIND AND TRUE
If Snow White's stepmother was kind and true
Who would she be talking to?

a. An oval mirror in the white room
b. A new wildflower today's bloom
c. Exoplanets circling a new bright star
d. Dwarfs and Leprechauns near and far

GOLD DUST
The crowd on Jerningham Avenue is anything but somber. You dust my bare belly with the golden dust of fun and frolic. An anointing, a passage into Tuesday play-mas. A day so much like today, with a sun, golden and scorching. Wind and dust, married in hot torrents of mesmerizing mantras. Yet my only chant, to the touch of your fingers caressing, is husband.

a throng of hips
answer to every beat -
Carnival vibe

Monday WRites 97

ETERNITY SPANS A BOND
Incredibly so, i will, love you forever
Fear not, of earnest span of time
There are days, still in the mind of ever;
And sorrows, i will turn to ash on fire,
My promise bequeath, i will, love you forever;
Who dresses lilies so cleverly in fields?
Surely, such talent, such finesse can never
Diminish or pale, in the scale of eternity,
Your burdens i can carry them, however
Weighty they may be, come to me in times
Of trouble and of joy, i will, love you forever.

children's carnival Sunday

the thin wafer of morning moon
has vanished like a Cheshire cat

in the afternoon
the main street thronged
with dancing children

LOVE LOVE LOVE
Tis good to stand on feet of air,
With songs of wind, in melodious vibe;
Hearts sprout wings, in ardous flight,
In fanciful ethereal fawning;
Love trends us fanciful foolish,
Whence cowardly tenders, ply in their loss.

Monday Writes 96


[image from google dot come]

ITS THE MUD THAT LUVS US
Wallowing in our comfort zones,
Is not the taste of Mondays;
Penultimate to the hype of carnival,
Indeed just the opposite.

Altars of reverence are deserted,
Adulting factors of brain go warp.
A communal mayhem dances,
To the feverish pace, of bacchanalia.

And yes!
Mud always, its the mud that luvs us,
As we become our own primal Adam.
ITS THE MUD THAT LUVS US © gillena cox 2017
