Monday WRites 268

[From my archives 2015 photos taken at La Vega Estate. Lovely Sky and Blue Plumbagos ]

BLUE-DOM
My earth's a magnet
This i know, no way will i fall
Way way below.
Find we some wings 
I swear i shall fly
Way up, way up to the sky
To a vast blue-dom
Above the clouds
There i to reside, never die

Monday WRites 267




Sometimes i think, we look at him through the wrong end of the long telescope of time. 
Consider the bees hovering over yellow ixoras, gathering sustenance. Leaving footprints of pollen.

Looking at them do we think of fierce stings, like thorns on a pretty rose bush. Or the buzz of honey making in abstract cone like mosaic cubes, poured golden into jars  within reach, on grocery shelves to sweeten temperaments on tea craved days.

FASHION ME A NEW NORMAL
Wet blanket, this novel corona. Shut ins, lock downs, distancing, serves us cold turkey. 

We mask to ward off viral attacks.
Birthday song our hand washing guide  for children.

Elbows bounce, and hugs must be virtual. What a world this new normal fashions.

DECEMBER JOY - A FOLD

A sigh of relief October all over 

Oh winds of September you were unkind

You messed up my roof and left for another

How then can i say i love thee most

I sigh with relief October all over 

Surely my February wines and dazzles me

 Still the love of December will never be over

 For did he not come on strain of angel songs

Joy of a baby in a manger laid under cover

A saviour not for one but for all to remember

December comes quickly October all over 

##NOTE: I have used the phrase '    October all over ' as my fold repeat in this poem. It is from a rhyme i know as a child regarding the hurricane season.

##NOTE 2.:The hurricane climatology adage “June: too soon; July: stand by; August: come they must; September: remember; October: all over” is a hoary chestnut that glibly elides risks at the beginning and end of the season.[from the internet]

 ##NOTE3: This 2020 September did really mess up my roof and left me with leaks

VATIC VOICE - A FOLD

Surely seasons come and seasons go

Live life with no regret, forever 

Looking to a better tomorrow

A moon is blue a moon is bright

Undeniably seasons come and seasons go

For faith for hope the time is now

Bird songs sweet like new day ooh

A time of cloister a healing time

Cultivating tomorrow today we sow 

Vatic the voice in silence heeding

Assuredly seasons come and seasons go

Monday WRites 265


[photos from my archive again today, art - a crop from a larger painting using poster paints ]

You look and look and finally she is ripe like an orange ready for juicing.The moon full in the night sky waiting for the shadows of witches brooms to ride
While low down below goblins stalk the night rapping on doorknobs shiny in  the light of pumpkins and garish smiles

a shower of sweets
a half full sack greedy to
 knock on other doors

Monday WRites 264


[Mosaic 1 fruit]

High on a mountain,
arms stretched to the clouds,
i'll sing a song and sing it loud,
for what is a rainbow if not
a box of crayons lost
in the vast space above,
that blue ocean below heaven above
we call a sky
