1747




Trending September Day 14

no summers
just Caribbean breezes
no winters either

fallen blossoms
on the paved walk

leaf cutter ants
they have a mind of their own
carrying cuttings

some faithful ladies arrange
vases for their church altar

automatic doors -
the intimated welcome
to grocery shoppers

persistent honking of horns
Sunday cooking gas sellers

polling day
the longest lines
for stained fingers

delicious! watermelons
did i mention, the red team won

kiskadee
this bird singing out its name
kis ka ke ee ee

as if the night was too long
an earth tremor before dawn

fragments of peace -
one aeroplane flying high
two grackles low

in the cooling of evening
to sit on the back steps nice

caterpillars
the way they cling sun or rain
comfort of leaves

in the torrent of raindrops
memories childhood paper boats

Paper boats, floating leaves and sticks, all kid-like fun in the rain.
