Ménage à Trois

This is a collaborative poem between myself, Ainsley “Mr. Erotica” Carter, and Carolyn “EmpressPoetry” Layne – two Barbadian poets who became friends on Facebook.  I was just minding my business yesterday when up suddenly a Facebook chat with the three of us popped up; Carolyn had this idea to collaborate on a poem and I … Continue reading

Tribute (Call to Action)

This poem is in response to the DVD “Cultures of Resistance” that I have watched a couple weeks ago. In the film, different artistes used their art to discuss atrocities in their lives – war, genocide, etc – and promote peace.  The website http://www.culturesofresistance.org has this on its “About Us” page: Worldwide, people from all … Continue reading

From The Heart

This poem was the precursor to HUG – I got permission to post it here from the person to whom it was dedicated. I wrote it after needing a hug – but I didn’t want to make it public before she gave permission. For all those who know what it means to feel secure in … Continue reading

Today is World Poetry Day. Now I know that this post is going up near the end of my work day and it should have gone up near the beginning of the day to give maximum exposure commemorating the day, but it was a hard day at work and I couldn’t  stop to try to … Continue reading

Alight (Haiku)

I’m back with another haiku … still trying out new forms and working them till I’m comfortable with them.  This one came from a friend’s conversation, where she likened love to a butterfly that alights on your shoulder – so delicate, but so close you can see it’s intricacies.  So, this is inspired by and … Continue reading


We can live without religion and meditation, but we cannot survive without human affection. –Dalai Lama Wilt (Gogyohka) Drooping stem weeps petals Shedding fragrance Fading lustre Mimosa not startled Longing anyway.

Wrote this sort of as a journal entry. I was feeling lonely and just had to get my feelings out on paper.  Nothing else, really. It’s a pretty nice poem, even though it was more a brain dump than an actual crafted piece.  Here is a little of my Heartache… Heartache I miss… I miss … Continue reading


I usually have a neat title for my poems … but this is more a cry of my heart right now rather than a well thought out piece that has been inspired through some other media.  So this is just titled…   Haiku Rain veils secret tears Jagged flash slices night sky Heart bloody – … Continue reading
