Mosaic 4: Carnival Past (photos from my archives)

 Its The Dry Season here in Trinidad and Tobago. We are also in The Carnival Season but the pandemic will prevent crowd activities; though the music will keep us the mood.

You've heard about the Monday Blues well this is Monday WRites (musing on the definition here of rite, as any customary observance for eg the rite of afternoon tea).

AND


today's challenge to use WAY in the 44 word poem

ONWARD
way out, way way out to sea, 
steamers wind their way  
against  currents of time, purporting 
power of all things possible; 
hazarding dreams to arriving at 
safe ports, already charted in divinely 
posted albums;
it is hoped that travelers and cargo  
remain  picture perfect.

 TASTE OF BUTTERNUT SQUASH

I remember the taste of butternut squash,

Your roasted words scorching brain cells

Its really hard to add one to two, resulting

In minus one, three just doesn't add up.


There is always something wrong, when

The moon plays coy, hiding behind clouds

The night sky chooses to define as highlights,

Shouldn't there be a beacon drawing threads


Desire once weaved? silently, arduously, continuously

There is no cheese what ever its colour, in the taste

Of moonlight, watching, as ships drift apart,

In a sea, salty  as if filled from mere teardrops.

#114: Road Trippin', Part VI

AND



Sometimes the great bones of my life feel so heavy, not blaming pandemic days tolling high rates of casualties and higher still quotients of grief. The fact remains that the healthy and the sick still possess qualities of humanity's negative yin yang sets

Betrayal will not pause to stare at corona viruses however tiny or invisible to the naked eyes. Fake smiles behind masks are not hiding, they are just comfortable in their new normal gizmo. Fake news will continue to thrive for there are always makers of untruths and sensationalisms.

Sigh; hope is a thing with wings, and so are light gossamer butterflies, trusting the wind to be kind to their weight just like the diaphanous webs which continue to exist; because spiders are what they are. They will spin their silks, regardless of  time or the culture of days.

Quadrille #119 – Dabbling in Poetry


CLOUD TO SKY
dab those walls of corona blues
applying touches of smiles
hope in tomorrow always shines
like  persistent unpowered noses  

lightly apply touches of smiles
wear this accessory like cloud is  to sky 
be to those thorns what is a rose  
twenty-twenty-one bring it on

SHU TWENTY TWENTY - A FOLD
Should be shove out bad ole twenty twenty?
Go! on be on your way,  go! shu shu git,
A year of novel ways,  and sorrows aplenty;
Distances magically widened beyond belief,
Who'll raise a cheer to bad ole twenty twenty?
Now everyone is a superhero, wearing a mask;
Tsk, tsk, a world of sad sameness made so easy;
Coughing and sneezing are things of the past,
So are hugs and kisses, though this might seem petty,
But oh! this is  the way we must strive and survive,
We'll surely remember, this bad ole twenty twenty?

Monday WRites 277

 



SEASON OF COVID 19  - A FOLD
In a long season of pandemic,
Joy of a Christ child interrupts;
A great comfort this is, no polemic.
Welcome savior, welcome Emmanuel.
For in this long season of pandemic,
We need, more so now, the strength  of love;
And a measure of hope than can merit,
The healing, from a plight that overshadows,
Light of wisdom and survival endemic;
Too long, too long now this season of pandemic.
