CLOUD POWER
Soft as cotton candy
Misty
Moody as a femme fatale
Shift shaping
Dragons fly and Magi store
Laughter

Where do oceans get her fill -
Swelling her ever-pregnant belly;
From rivers, streams, drains
And these in turn from
Source

Clouds of azure
Clouds of Overcast
Clouds of storm
Clouds of power

Soft as cotton candy
Misty
Moody as a femme fatale
Shift shaping
Dragons fly and Magi store

WHO KNOWS
Can an itched be solved?
Scratch that question
Why little bird asleep on my doorstep
Rest still after daybreak whistlers
have done calling?
Perhaps just a tired dove,
Perhaps angels do sleep,
Perhaps just common happenstance.
Who knows where wings will roost little birds.

Monday WRites #163


A GREEN MUG
A green mug, from which i sometimes drink:
soup, tea, coffee, reminds me that this precious gift,
we sometimes call life, so multifaceted,
it aches my bones to think there are some of us
who still want to waterdown flavours to only,
yet bittersweet dreams of strife, strained
to the gregs of a history's future days.

DOWN TOWN
'Times the Cathedral bells still ring to summon attention
Some prayer still remain trapped in its hall, on its pews,
In its arches above, hopefully rising ever so sloooowly

A spire finger pointing clouds on puffy azure days
Remaining cold silent and reticent in many overcasts
To gaze vagrancy asleep on Woodford Square benches

Downtown Port of Spain when the season of Poui trees
Silent in splendour rival the bells of the Cathedral
When the sunshine stings our conscience to remember

We do remember days of the soapbox verbous campaigner
Who later packed the childrens' futures into their schoolbags
Cramming their little heads with big dreams of statesmanship

Monday WRites 162


PATTERNING A NEW DAY
To paint the patterns of morning
Bird songs canvas the art of daybreak
Wind daubs the colours of dawning
Lightening sky with tints of clouds and
Shrill whistles to patterns of morning
A host of feathered choruses sound
Flowers lift cherry faces of praising
Then why not you and i our hearts to
The gift of new day in our welcoming
Faith another station to the structure
Add to paint the patterns of morning

Monday WRites 161


INTENSE
After a day of intense World Cup football, we here in T&T were served some intense stormy weather: complete with lightning and thunder. This morning its bright and sunny. And in my area, looks like it never rained at all last night. As for the flowers the wild ones, the planted ones, they all seem to be smiling a littler brighter this morning

who loves the rain most-
surely
the flowers do
