Zuri July 2014

the scene pauses -
my grandbaby (not yet 2)
swipes the screen




morning clearing/ the questionong tone of/an unknown bird//



A reading in ordinary time,
This poem dosn't need to rhyme;
However, if i make it,
I'll just call it a limerick;
Then clean, cook, chop some thyme

to sleep to dream of blossoms -

through the white plum blossoms
a glimpse of dawn

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.

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
