renewing our landscape...
exit month of March


parched dry days ensue
clouds hold the rain chrysalis

In those days, in their thirst for water,
the people grumbled against Moses,
saying, “Why did you ever make us leave Egypt?.....

Carpe Diem Special #83, The Way of St. James (part 9)


"I fought with all my strength to keep my hands and feet anchored to their holds, but the
noise of the water seemed to take me to another place. It was a mysterious and distant place where nothing that was happening at that moment was at all important, and it was a place that I could get to if I had the strength.[Carpe Diem]

Wordle prompt #152

THE PAINTING
squeeze your paint to paint
a city small yet bustling
with strips of green slack

apple cider drinks
pack wicker baskets with dust
bottle recycle

a tower felled plop
really it was an easel
fold it up no fuss

photo 'The Ferruginous Pygmy-Owl' from glwildlife

who 'oo who 'oo whoo
who will go from the village
to ancestors meet

if you know then why
why do you ask Jumbie bird
why your mocking hoot

to awaken dread
in the throes of purple skies
is that why you ask

your echoes follow
golden rings in charcoal night
forest stalkers sleep

yet your eyes alight
piercing the seams of dreamers
stitched to folklore's sight

Its a hot day. The kind of day everyone knows is now hot, after the carnival festivities. She invites us over to her place. (Besides what are girlfriends for any way?) She doesn't want to be alone. Not now, when her wellspring of tears have dried up, when she can cry no more. After stringing her along for so many years, he decides it time she knew, he's married, and his wife lives overseas. The Carnival is truly over. The ashes on her forehead loudly acclaim.

"book club chats with the author"

'Is America She Gone' by Beverly-Ann Scott

Her style is real, refreshing, compelling and totally absorbing. For those who haven't yet read it, this her second novel, i dare say, is also a 'must read'.
We chatted with Trinidadian author, Dr Beverly-Ann Scott, about her second novel at the Nalis, St James Library this morning. Happy i was there.
