October ends fifty four days till Christmas

they have them in piles
up front at the grocery stores -
clay lamps called deyas

1784



a shadowy moon
tethered in night's vast longing
a witch her sad heart



though the witch was sad
her broomstick scurried away
into the dark night




darkness engulfing
the cackle of an old witch
ruffles the cat's fur

1781



lightning
to show the way
at pre dawn

and stormy winds -
yet not the full brunt of
lady Patricia

she has ravaged
Mexico
she longs
now to slumber

i too return
to slumber land there to find
a cauldron

steamy hot water
when i awake surely
i will brew tea

such wicked grins -
all the Halloween pumpkins
are wearing them

wear your wicked grins
Halloween tricks and treats lurk
around each corner

around each corner
a spell a snarl a cat jumps
a moon shadows night

lush forest trees
the azure sky finds her space
in between



[my son and my granddaughter]

swirling in the pool
the colours of azure sky -
a sunny retreat



photos taken Yesterday at La Vega Nature and Recreation Park, Gran Couva, Trinidad.
And Today, my granddaughter Zuri is three, Thank you Lord; a Sunday of special gratitude;

Sunday morning rain...
a sprinkling of kindness
on wildflowers

wildflowers in relief...
dipped in holy water founts
fingers of faithfuls

fingers of faithfuls...
prayers of peace circle aves
on rosary beads

rosary beads
in October days weigh...
tradition of hope
