A Wander-full Quest with Beautiful Blurs.

Amidst the bustling noon-crowd out the university,

He goes wrestling with the shadows of the city,

Chasing down the brightest spill of light, 

To recreate Trent Parke's "moving bus" upright.

 

Setting the camera on the sidewalk,

10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5 and so goes the timer, 

'Make way for the frame', goes the declaimer,

The crowd goes around, except for one strider.

Affirmations for my mother

You are a woman,

beautiful,

      black,

   God’s masterpiece,

    created with

    majestic power

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† and divinity‚ÄĒ

 

   The type of woman

   who could never

          be tamed

                           or possessed.

   One deserving of

 love, respect,

and civility.

Love Bank

round every corner's a food bank

but what about people like me?

my table creaks with provisions,

I'm never short of salmon for tea

 

its a love bank my heart needs

somewhere to nourish my soul,

fill my breast with fondant fancies

its been far too long on the dole

 

I dream of hot charitable staff

eager women dressed to kill,

piling my basket with promise

Father

You ask if I believe in God...
How can I not?

To deny my Father
means I leave my existence
to some 30 year old predator
who impregnated a girl half his age
and left her to raise their child
in the wilderness, among wolves 
that feed on loneliness and despair.

Without my Father, I would never know
that after suffering comes deliverance,
pain leads to compassion,
forgiveness breaks b...

Red Pearl

Red Pearl

 

You are such a beautiful woman and I spent my life trying to find you

as I look at the waters of the beach, so beautiful and so sparkling blue

but in the water, I see something shining and I see it staring at me

I must go get it, before it is too late

the wind is perfect and it is such a perfect day

 

I see it and I swam for it and I saw millions of diamonds

Jacaranda

Alive are the branches soaring the sky

Flowers are purple smelling to pride

Green and soft leaves allowing the tree

To breathe the excitement of being just

Free

 

Summer arrives and so does the drought

Oh the poor bloomer with tears it fought

The ages of water, the ages of rain

"No shortage of water may cause enough pain"

The Forrest did say

 

Branches brown, wi...

Always remember the beach

How about the beach? Sandy feet, fresh breeze.                                                            Seize the sunlight, beam just as bright 

How about flying a kite? Light, the campfire, just right.                                             Tent settled, just behind that tree you see? 

How perfect could this be? Gazing beside one another; amongst grass and stars  We huggled as if it ...

In The Shadow of Your Smile

I live in the shadow of your smile

And I like the way it lights your eyes;

I like your style

 

My senses stir with the fragrance of your soul

And I like the way it lingers

So I’ll linger too, for a while

 

My heartbeat races when we touch

And I like your warmth; the way you feel

I like your smile

 

You way you talk is like a song

That plays easy on my ears
