a red hibiscus
plucked from a wayside fence blooms...
thus just for a smile



those starched white shirts
once our grand mothers pressed...
flat irons relics



untimely black outs...
the whispered requests for
candles and matches

checking my swollen upper lip again
...had a procedure done 4 years ago to burn out a flat mole which popped up, and spread towards my upper lip line. Now near that scar, some others popped up, one of which again spread to nestle just my upper lip line again. So, on Thursday, went to doctor, by the time i got home my upper lip was huge; that's the process. So now the next few weeks i have to keep the area dry and apply the prescribed antibiotic powder during healing

1486



Last week Sunday was the last in the series 'Sunday Savvy'. Today begins a new Sunday series titled 'Sunday Lime'. In T&T, when we say lime, and we are not talking citrus fruit, then, we are talking 'get together' - implicitly to have fun. So, here at Lunch Break, its out with old ( 'Sunday Savvy') and in with the new ('Sunday Lime').
The question for 'Sunday Lime' is - "How is your Sunday going?" while the task of of 'Sunday Lime' is, no prompts, no fuss - just sharing. Sunday Smiles remaining.

the first chorus




warmth of sun -
my companions
songs of birds
