scattered shards
she is able with her gaze
to splinter glass

splendor of sunshine
trapped in her secular whirl
her skin glows

the gathering
harvest of mangoes
after a strong breeze

beat of the season
rattle of unopened gifts
tis plain to see

moments flutter by-
miserable pirouettes
are days and nights

neglected children-
spills from narrow shadows seen
from cloudy skies

forgotten laughter
stains resolute despair-
Armageddon sighs

for Hades decision
map the course of suffering-
wars and scourges

clouds drift
an intake of morning breath
i am

the universe
unfathomable span
a speck of dust

and there was light
vaster the mind of God
a thought revealed

bird songs
a choir of difference stirring
through winds

grandmother
a tryst with contemplation
haiku willed

when the sunlight
sieves through tomorrow
mysteries appear

Whats special about today's photo sharing; well, these flowers are commonly refered to, here in the Caribbean, as "Jump up and kiss me"; honestly, i don't know why; and too, i put the potted plant in this wire stand-up basket, the basket is older than i am, it was made by my maternal grandfather(Lewis Stroude).

another Sunday...

unfolds eternal
warmth of sunshine some days
a gentle wind strokes my cheek

tranquility reigns
ethereal, there are sounds
locked in smooth round stones

here the poui blooms
intensly pink or truly
globs of midas gold

don't look down that slope
bottomless in destiny; farmers
tend christophene vines

thicker than the stalks
Jack dared climb for merely
a giant's fortune

shadowy spirals
i vanish into morning
still gasping for breath
