Trending September Day 10

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

this bird singing out its name
kis ka ke ee ee

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