1465


photo of my grand daughter Zuri, taken in April, she will be two in October.


Today i'm thinking: grand child, au gratin, and Brasilia. I'm always happy when she visits, she makes my day brighter.


she runs with the wind
rippling banana fronds -
Sunday savvy






SIMPLE GESTURE

ghosts of futures
image the blood of ragged -
rain drops in a drought

a candle struggles
with the flame of bush fires
on the hill sides

the caped crusader
blind sighted raises him arms -
a simple gesture

who will summon
the rain; a mission
beyond his measure

I hadn't thought of Trinidad and Tobago having bushfires (not like Australia). Here the native vegetation doesn't suffer so much as introduced species.

How right you are about a little one's visit. It is as though looking at them you see the meaning of life.
