SANDY FLIP FLOPS

A treasure, the sand between my toes;
Washed from my flip flops, with a length of hose;

Such fun days, pearled in sea shells on the beach,
And other such like ones, hoarded within my reach;

Rocks to climb, mountains steep to gaze,
while frangipani redden, beneath the sun rays;

I treasure such memories of youth.

WALL

teabags infuse
some hot days and warm nights
penciling thoughts

~on the richter scale six point something~

deep in-breath
in response to a rumble
cracks in the walls

TEARS

tears from a wellspring
on a wet day when bud-like
caricature blooms

~memories come bubbling~

gushing to surface
fresh wounds scarred to close lifetimes
shared in short limits

FIREWORKS

reds greens oranges
colours at pointed fingers
on a festive night

fireworks boom inky sky
he is covered in cartons

unseen to slumber
the vagrant corner sleeper
whether day or night

this was the mood out on the Western Main Road St James, Trinidad 2006, after our team 'Soca Warriors' qualified to go to Germay

Today i'm thinking 'Soca Warriors', 'settlement', and 'YEAH!!!'

Mostly everyone, if not everyone, is looking at World Cup 2014 this July. Which makes for an eclectic mix of tears, hugs, waves, colours, hurts and joys. Here in T&T there's joy in the camp of our Soca Warriors, who are in the news, not as players, but as receivers. Happily so; the long outstanding monetary payment owed to them, has been settled.
And now looking forward, Yeah!!! Germany/Argentina today; may the best played team win.
