Barbados 2023


Sun on my belly

sand in my toes

deep deep heat

of solar star

burns these


Sea creatures dead

a million years:

random footprints


pathways many’ve

trod before.

Blue azure crystal

sea, I’m alive

in paradise.



Paradise never

lies, or does it?

Tea cup horizon

blood beat heat

equator rolling.

There was loving

in the breeze,

now I’m tapping

empty air;

life is how

you live it

or so it seems

to me, &

love is how

you give it.


The jungle drips

with monsoon rain

the birds in hiding

& the frogs refrain

cuts the thunder:

we are in this

we are out of it

ten thousand words

will not explain

the beginning

the ending.
