American Thanksgiving (1621)

Passengers in England boarded the Mayflower
To cross the Atlantic for the New World.
To escape religious persecution
For worshipping God as they saw fit
With separation of Church and state, God and King.

They suffered hardship that first winter

It was her birthday and as a true Sagittarius she had colourful vision 

And a sharp bow for shooting the moon to get closer to serious action

not a given
a leaf laden
elm with one
among the
hundreds
or more

was a flesh
colored bud
that tanned
in the sun of
the summer

but as time
grew on and
the time to
fall and run
with the wind

left this leaf

 A tiny ant was crossing the kitchen table
I was going to squash it with my thumb,
Hesitated, I thought to let it pass first then kill it.

Worms
They say I'm poor.
They say I'm a whore.
They say they're better than me.

Their words like worms
crawl under my skin.

They might as well give up
trying to push me down,
squash me on the ground.

There's a spirit in me,
that rises with the sun...Read More

Summer's Binge
Late summer is a challenge for me.
Every year I’m overwhelmed with desire,
when passing fruit stands, vegetable stands,
and even farm wagons on front lawns,
overflowing with fresh produce.

I salivate in the car and especially the grocery store,
when entering to purchase more butter

cool rain
a choir of drops
a symphony of breeze
prelude to autumn
leaves scattered
humidity shattered
a crisp feeling 
across my face and
the promise of 
more scarves
heavier jackets
pumpkins, butternut
squash, and apples

a wish on a leaf
and watch it float
away until it drop
on another spot on
the ground and...Read More

BUTTERNUT SQUASH
Butternut squash does it make people moan
Methinks I'm unique, methinks I'm alone
Each to his own

If I Give All I Give
If I get up and go against the grain

EXCITED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES
THEY TRIED TO INCREASE THE LEVEL OF PRODUCTIVITY

Swat the hate- hate bug

Hatred is simply a fractious bug on the brain
which doesn't always wash away with the rain
that is neither the rain of love nor that of homily

But if you solemnly profess belief
in the God right above

A New Nebula
"Sight of both eyes lost",... 
I wake up in a world of infinite darkness.
My new receptors learnt to succor my woe. 
A shadow cast in an illusion of light, 
now winks and mocks my scourge. 
Asteroids crash deep within my...Read More

Stop laughing at me, kitchen bin,
like some too-clever metaphor,

3 Months Rent PIF
My feelings

Between forlorn

Night bring terrible memories,
shadows of yesteryears,
it takes my breath away

heart beats burst my chest with pains.
Please take away those forces
that rumble in my midriff

Wild Horse
The Wild Horse

He who seeks only control
becomes drunk
on the clouded waters,
drawn from the wells of will.
And his heart,
remains the size of a thimble.
He is the flamboyant fool in the velvet coat,
whose starched collar
chaffes the wrinkles at his throat.
He grips an...Read More
