morning sunlight...
soundless shadows of wind chimes
behind the drapes

where the heart
of friendship throbs
the music is still heard

IN THE WILDS

there are no answers
when at the edge of complex
pale moons

the forest tracks
lie in the face of mists
still he files pass

this strange lizard
in a class of his own
a mess of guesses

who he be or should be
gas lamps have their place in the wilds

Sunday savvy

--gillena cox

Its daytime Sunday, and the sky is azure, with no moon; however the awesome big roundish moon i spotted on Friday night was so remarkable i had to share. My calendars indicate the full moon tonight (in some time zones it would have been last night). Astronomy describes tonight's full moon as a perigee-syzygy; some folks say a Super Moon; the next one will be August 10, 2014; revisit Super Moon 2012

'BOOK CLUB BUS RIDE SATURDAY BOOKMARKED'

Linking today to
Six Word Saturday And Scenic Weekends

Last Saturday, June 15th, The Nalis St James book club ventured out on a PTSC cross-country bus ride. We boarded the bus at the city gate terminus. Before leaving the compound, we were introduced to both our driver and to our guide, who assured us that our safety and satisfaction were their main concerns. We were each given a copy of a map to follow our cross-country progress.

Our guide shared with us several historical tidbits concerning PTSC compound and its environs.
This PTSC compound, housed the city railway station of 1842 where the trains ran from 1846 -1968; it still carries the country's oldest steps, and still carries its emblem TGR outside its Victorian styled edifice. Our journey started along the 'Bus Route'

The Bus Route or Priority Bus Route as it is known today was constructed from its terminus to San Juan 1977, extended to Curepe in 1979 then to Tunapuna in 1983.

Leaving the terminus: spotted ...the repairs area of the PTSC compound; ...the corner of Charlotte and South Quay (there a slave torture chamber used to be); ...Tamarind Square was an old slave market; ...flow of the Dry River built in 1786 using slave labour; ...Broadway (formerly Almond Drive used to be a lover's lane); ...The Port of Spain Lighthouse......a purple heart wood post dated 1842 associated with telegram lines; ...Angostura Building where our world renown bitters is manufactured; ...Fernandes manufacturer of rum and by products and largest warehouse in the country; ...The Picton area in the hills where two large WASA tanks carry a painting of our national birds; ...The Laventille Hills (formerly Laventilla-place of strong winds) hometown of the founder of the steel band Winston Spree Simon; ...former areas of Shanty town and Donkey City and a marker where a watering hole for donkeys used to be...

The path outline in red on the map, is my noted indication of the route and not a part of the map as given to us.

Our route: Port of Spain - San Fernando - Princes Town - Rio Claro - Mayaro - Manzanilla (Beach) - Port of Spain (through Sangre Grande).

CHALK AND DUSTER

in the wake of chalk and duster
knowledge confounded

a cave cut
in the hillside of mischief
a load of dynamite

shatters the status
of anything
that makes sense

the chattering
at recess pours in
after the bell

they giggle
whispering the scoop
from cupped hands

trying to drive
the teachers crazy
their splits

moonshine
island children sanction
anancy tales

Starched Can Cans


a bee
at the throat of a blossom...
sweet rapture

wind through praire sweeps
wild flowers this way that way

eager faces...
the excitement of children
running limbs carry

choo choo..
the train of thought
another busy day

each swirl nimble needle points
in hushed halls where vaults secure

they crave
the passion of
open fields

Welcome month of June; today is the first Sunday of the Month of June, and the Sunday just after the homage of Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi in T&T is the rainy season marker, so to the pedestrian thought, without the instruction of the Met Office, the Rainy Season has started revisit Corpus Christi 2012
