Trending September Day 30

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


❧✿❧


near palm fronds wave to
distant verdant mountains

after many years
from opposite directions
to meet in the street

under large umbrellas
the doubles vendors

a can of beans -
the flip side of a label
to write a haiku

coin toss
the captain says
we play

the dare of youth to reason
game of cricket in the street

the old mango tree
holding patches of sky
all day long

just for a while this sunset
golden like the burning bush

who knows me better
than i know myself -
dark chocolate squares

contemplating gratefulness
Republic Day holiday

Friday market -
a bouquet of fresh green herbs
delights the senses

enjoying parang music
counting days to Christmas

little nuances -
eighty eight days to Christmas
and the lists

a big bright September moon
whispers light in the silence

September blood moon
already passed -
much talked about

and so sayonara 2015

Trending September Day 12

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
