Whence Springs Beauty

It’s October, we find time to go by the spring-house to get the tulips. It is time to prepare for winter and the inevitable coming of spring.  The bulbs look hopelessly dead and ugly, rather pitiful in fact.  John nurtures them tenderly.

fall gardener tucks the bulbs in bed till spring's alarm
Through many snows and chilling temperatures, we do not consider at all what is taking place under the ground. One warm March day we see tiny noses poking up through the soil around the back porch. By April, we are sitting in the swing admiring the result of John’s loving labor of last fall.
seeing the blooms we recall dried-up bulbs
How could such ugliness have turned to such beauty in the cold, hard earth? As May approaches bringing other flowers, our short-lived tulips drop their blossoms and say good-bye. But as John knows, the wisest of gardeners do not hasten to bother the beauty in its passing.
dust to dust all blossoms shrivel with time food for the soil wilting leaves nourish the bulb hidden in the ground
The bulb remains unattractive throughout the whole cycle of growth. Along in mid-July when all external signs of life have faded, John removes the unsightly bulbs from their bed, putting them back in the spring-house until fall. Without them, there will be no blossoms next spring. It is the care we show the bulb which bursts into the beauty we bless in time. HM

Summer Breeze

Summer breeze blowing
soft, gentle as silken touch
caressing my skin

as it whiff my face

Gently my hair falls
its long strands flying loosely
like feathers whirling

It briefly passes
leaving a faint memory
a touch of summer

waves of giggles

and the scent of coconut – 

city splash pad









*where we spent today. I was actually shocked to smell coconut, because most children's sunblock doesn't have any. But there were some moms sunning, so.... still, I actually froze in midstep, inhaled and smiled... BLISS!

Another verbless... I'm liking exploring the concept of verbless.... I do INTENTIONALLY use words that COULD be a verb if I rewrote lines, 

Life. Busy. Tiring. GOOD!

ON A SUMMER DAY - multi haiku

On a summer day
A day with children at play
Memories come back

The old neighborhood
How we used that neighborhood
So seldom inside

Our dirty    bare feet
At games   in constant motion
Lungs alive with joy

Drooping in at eve
And nearly too tired to eat
We lay down    at last

To sleep    dream away

A thousand phantoms linger
On a summer day

summer dawn –
the path of cowries
beyond the sea 


summer dream
counting the butterflies
in neighbor’s garden


piercing the 			
breeze, my chute lifts –
summer beach	


summer twilight . . .
the bee eater stirring
tall grass

summer sunset – 
changing colour of
rising waves


summer's end . . .
the waterfall thunders into
my laughter


last day of summer
bouncing, the pool ball
of her eyes


summer ends
the wallah takes down
the raincoat array

Ice King

Sanctuary breeched
Stole cube of ice you hold dear
Grasping your power

Season weakens you
Seething and stabbing my palm
Fighting against clutch

Ceded power now
Few months away, cold revenge 
encasing my world


*** These days we hold Ice dear, then winter comes and it's despised.

This is Paradise

Sea tides undulate

Salt saturates wide valleys

Fish leap helplessly

Seagulls laugh at moment’s spare

Desert sand surrounds

Lonely land mass residing

Brim with tourism

Festivals ignite the flame

Native culture dance

Parties prosper all around

Sun enlightens all

Skin tans from ash to brown dust

Reggae music blasts

Life turns to relaxation

This is paradise

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I
( Life's Journey)


Life was beautiful
for all the leaves in the tree
in spring and summer

They flourished and bloomed
under the warm summer sun
and sweetest spring rain

Their color brightened
to a lovely shade of green
that glowed with beauty

Flowering blossoms
from the buds of the fruit tree
brought joy and delight

Little birds would peck
as they sit on the branches
on the lush green leaves

It was the best time
of their lives atop the tree
filled with happiness

But life has seasons
that never stay all the time
they come and they go

Spring and summer passed
autumn came and its cold winds
changing all the leaves

Turning their color
from bright green to brown and red
yellow and orange

Their brightness faded
their loveliness spent and gone
making them pale and weak

How seasons changed them
tempering all their nature
through adversities

Winter will arrive soon
and do her task of sweeping
the bough of the tree

The faded leaves will go
and leave the tree to herself
to make room for spring

When new leaves will grow
to replace those that have gone
in the cold winter

In such a lifetime
they have gone through all seasons
in smooth and rough times

That is how life goes
for all the leaves in the trees
in the cycle of life
