Limerick : Once our Senorita from Sevilla – 9

Once our Senorita from Sevilla 
Lied about going to Colombia
Rivals said : You know why !	
Others : Her life’s a lie !
Our Saint confessed lie in Iglésia !

Moments Are Melancholy
Moments are melancholy 
Because, lives have been lost 
People are in a state of bewilderment 
Dithered, confused, and distraught 
Nothing but a chaotic scene 
Filled with lots of bitterness 
With tragic events in London and Colombia 
Many people are sullen and filled with emptiness...

Coffee House 900th poem
The beans come from tropical South America. The biggest producers are Brazil and Colombia. When you drink that first cup early in the day, just remember your beverage traveled a long way. With all the coffee houses in town everywhere, do you thing their patrons give a damn or care?

casa della pasta
from a street
in Cartagena
stepping
suddenly

into a 

restaurant
so Italian
surely i was
in a time warp

for i

i was still
in Colombia but
fooled by the food
so authentico

and even

the wine was 
from Italy so
after paying
my bill

instead

of using
the usual
gracias i just 
had to say

grazie...

a series of three
#1:   

             synapses firing
      my closed eyes see July 4th
         please just let me sleep

#2:

          my mind's still working
  stop thought but think only of sleep
                 find Colombia

#3:

            my wife hid the gun
        not mine but the other one
             i don't have bullets

impromptu
Ofelio
lives in a box
in a basement
in a house
in a city
in Colombia

not knowing
he's a turtle
never
seeing another
other 
turtle

head hidden
in his shell
selling
himself off
as if
sleeping

but he's 
peeking
at a moto
trying to find
how to climb
like the gato

once seated
on the seat
he turns the key
now moving faster
then his feet
he dreamily drives 

out
of Cali...

Coffee Cup
My coffee still proud
halfway from the mouth.
Golden in light.
It's glow from the south.

A cup made of paper
rolled to a cone
with a lustre of candy
that's sweet and alone.

Invisible vapours
float on the surface
sealing heat in
for their miniature purpose.

Staggered clear bubbles
floating on top.
Some of them larger
that some are going pop.

All with a flavour
as rich as the beans.
Thanks for Colombia,
the pickers and machines....

FALL FROM GRACE
I am walking with grace
Shimmering crown on my head
Crowd is rejoicing
My phenomenal moment
All of a sudden
I fall from my poise
The magic is gone
I can’t take this anymore
The dreamy crown
Take away from my head
Freezing to shame
This embarrassing moment
Dethroned after minutes
This is a disgrace
Got nothing to face
I’m dying inside

Note: I really feel bad for Ms. Colombia. Anyway, congratulations Ms. Philippines (Ms.Universe)

Tragedy of Intelligent man
Sandy nations of Arabia
bushes of Tropical Congo
rocky lands of Afghanistan
the dry soils of Somalia
waters of the Mediterranean
bush land of Karamoja*
forestland of Colombia
ragged dress of ozone layer
swampland of South Sudan
homeland of Aborigines
All dance to rhythm of same music
tragedy of intelligent man!

*Karamoja is the remotest
part of Uganda where the people called
Karamojong depend on cattle and nature!
Many die of hunger in a nation of plenty!

ball bearings
i'm confused
not knowing
where to go
what to do

my compass
needle sticks
out reading 
south by 
south 
west
but 

google map
and my gps
suggest
another
place
as 
to

where
the X
may be
yet directing
me are directions
that are directionally
my instincts telling me

you are
exactly 
where
you are 
meant
to 
be

but by my
calculations
with sexton and
star eyed gazing
the Americas weren't
discovered by Columbus
so Colombia isn't spelled

with
a "u"...
