Love Is Like A Tropical Island

Love is like a tropical island
It is found in every direction you look
North, south, east and west on the map
where it sits very patiently
surrounded by calm seas
if not found there would be no paradise

Love is like a tropical island
for which its suitors search for its gold
within its golden sand, if it's not found
the island's volcanoes will erupt
and there would be no paradise


Love is like a tropical island
Where its suitors convey knowledge
Of every cardinal point, ocean depth
And trade winds all over the island
If they aren't able to locate
Its golden treasure
There would be no paradise

The Bahama Islands, Our Tropical Paradise

The Bahama Islands, our tropical paradise
the apple in eyes of the Caribbean
the place of my birth
like the planet Saturn camouflaged
in sun, sand and sea!

The Bahama Islands, our tropical paradise
the archipelago we all love 
from Grand Bahama, 
Abaco, Exuma to Inagua
a sanctuary where summer vacations 
and island hopping are endless! 

There is an abundance of activity 
for Bahamians and tourists can all enjoy
Junkanoo, Goombay Fest and Pineapple Fest
buying Androsia Print 
and scuba diving in The Dean's Blue Hole! 

The Bahama Islands, our tropical paradise
I'm very proud to be a loyal Bahamian
with your balmy coconut trees
and your tropical white sandy beaches
you are God's gift to the tourism industry!

Ribcage Like A Conch Shell

My ribcage is like a conch shell
where you can press your ear
against my narrow chest 
where the music of the ocean tides
meet the songs of the mermaids
flowing and circulating
through my heart made of ocean water
and my breastplate made of coral reefs

Miss Bahamian Culture

Miss Bahamian Culture
a woman who pledges loyalty
to put Bahama land from the time
she was conceived out of the womb


Miss Bahamian Culture
a woman who sheds the blood
of gold, black and aquamarine
straight from her veins
as she wakes up each morning
to the pulsing beat of Goombay drums
and cowbell singing in her ears


Miss Bahamian Culture
a woman who is a true cultural icon
always clothed in either Androsia Print
a costume of cardboard and crepe paper
or gold, black and aquamarine attire
from head to toe


Miss Bahamian Culture
a woman who is a pure nationalist
who always remember where her navel string was buried
in her place of birth and tropical sanctuary
regardless of where she travels in the world
whether it be in Miami, Cuba, Japan or Vancouver

Depression Is A Great White Shark

Depression is a great white shark
who navigates the green sea of my emotions
ravaging parts of my aching heart
with his teeth absorbed in bitterness and loneliness
leaving behind shipwrecks of life struggles
and broken relationships in his wake

Goodbye Summer

Goodbye Summer
thank you for spending 
another glorious year here with us
I wish you never had to end
it seemed like just yesterday
when the calendar was set to June 22nd 
but now the time is racing 
closer and closer to the end of August
where the winter solstice is drawing near


I will truly miss those 
spectacular days and weeks
soaking up the sun
playing in the aqua park
on Blue Lagoon Island
and jamming to summer tunes
on my radio set to Island FM
but most of all I will miss you
for those late night sunsets
as if God left in a flashlight in the clouds

All though I do look forward 
to Fall, Winter and Spring
but summer is the season 
I look forward to seeing most

The Joys Of Nature

He painted the ocean 
in fifty shades of green and blue
with his mighty paintbrush of perfection! 

He sculpted a garden of coral reefs 
and barrier reefs for us to see
with his powerful chisel of praise! 

He sketched the outlines
of slithering bonefish and Nassau Groupers, 
and sneaky Spiny Lobsters and humpback whales
with his graphite pencil of glory! 

He shaded the colors of gliding dolphins
drifting sea lions and green turtles
and soaring stingrays
with his pastel sticks of righteousness! 

He crafted a collage 
of magical starfish, sand dollars, seahorses
conch shells, oysters, clams and seaweed
with his scissors, glue 
and construction paper of greatness!

Great Barrier Reefs And Other Things That Grew Between Us

Ever since we went our separate ways
I have been missing you as the day goes by
my love for you still amplifies my heart
like the currents of the ocean
You always knew we were both
a perfect match made in paradise
and all we had were plans and dreams
but the Great Barrier Reef that grew between us
decided our love was never meant to be 
when the forces of the waves and tides built up and grew
and swept you from out of my arms
leaving me stranded on one side of the land
while you are left stranded across the way
separated by that Great Barrier Reef
and the Tongue of The Ocean
still pondering the odds of our imminent reunion

Out Of My Comfort Zone

I love the beach 
on a warm summer day in July
surrounded by a brigade of coconut palms everywhere
the feel of the sunlight boiling on the surface of my skin
at low tide limestone rocks scattered on the sand banks
tidal pools exposed with sea crabs 
racing through diluted waters

I love the ocean at it's lowest point
where I can walk out far beyond the shore
like Jesus walking the surface without
ever sinking below

I love glancing at the clear turquoise seas
a sight very magnificent indeed
performing the rhythms of waves
against the sand banks and lime stones
and every poetess goldmine for written inspiration

My Red Converse And You

When I am gone from this world
I will leave you in my will
my size eight pair of red Converse high tops
for you to keep and wear in memory of me
along with the black ones and pink ones 
residing in my closet too
you always love when I wear them
with my blue jeans, green t-shirt and Nike socks
every time we take a stroll together on the beachfront
creating enormous footprints in the sand
and when I am beating you in games 
of one on one basketball on the park
