Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda

They curse the dry unyielding ground stubble from impotent crops remain toppled huts call out in anger “we will never be whole again they have maligned our children destroyed our spirit” only bitter weeds grow strong *** lovingly they pour water on hardened ground fingers soiled with ancestral dirt music filters through new huts goldenContinue reading “Restored #forgiveness #poetry #uganda”

War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry

  I held a Sudanese hand it fit so small in mine I caught a ragged smile I wished I had more time We sang a song of praise they dance with all their might their mamas and their papas they lost them in war’s night fortitude and strength the littlest they stand hope, faith,Continue reading “War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry”

The Marketplace of Life #poetry #lifeinUganda

      greetings far and wide hearts momentary grasp a smile of shared kindness if only this could last  shallow are grey blue waters when for another do not share freedom used to ring for gold we only care daily the reminders a smile so white and pure a child trusts my hand loveContinue reading “The Marketplace of Life #poetry #lifeinUganda”

No Comparison #art #nature #poetry

I tried to draw a rose today but noise and life got in the way my pencil finally took control what it drew I hardly know “it’s good I guess” I tell the pad  I sniff the scent of rubber band I tried to draw a rose today crumpled paper, thrown away * rare beautyContinue reading “No Comparison #art #nature #poetry”

In Life’s Mirror #poetry #uganda #photography

In the mirror of a water bucket I see: A blur of color children with bright hearts flames cannot douse courage little girls pump, pump, pump feet steadily move up the hill “more water” little heads bear yellow water jugs school books brown edged blue chairs too hot to touch  ashen are next day’s reflectionsContinue reading “In Life’s Mirror #poetry #uganda #photography”

Nostalgia #poetry #beaches #photography

memories of feet caressing sand beaches and piers, a quest chasing shore birds digging for treasure building castles in shared dreams *** sand collapses sun shines too bright in my eyes you walk with another The word “nostalgia” comes from two Greek roots, nostos meaning ‘return home’ and algia ‘longing’. However neither poetry nor politics birthedContinue reading “Nostalgia #poetry #beaches #photography”

Behind the Elevator #poetry #photography

Beckoned to the mystery something I might dread there has to be something behind the hallway of my head my finger shudders, lingers on THE button slowly now once I press it “Open” “Close” may not be allowed my hand makes the decision reason swirls with dismay one thing I can tell you I’ll never be the sameContinue reading “Behind the Elevator #poetry #photography”

Bouquet for Her #poetry #photography

I circled her fresh face with my fingertips ruby red were her luscious lips spring her blossom ever green awaken not from this dream summer harsh it takes the glow dew’s gone, nothing will grow our love languish in her eyes  robbing heat  I ever despise colors change,  bouquet of woe her faded lips her time I knowContinue reading “Bouquet for Her #poetry #photography”

Stories in my head #poetry

spillway of imagination words turbulent and frenzied the hero anxious in the wings  villain threatens with aplomb a hushed sense of what’s next blood and tears fall innocence fleas the shadowed way a woman saves the day the sun rises all is well time  is small in my hand I brandish my weapon  pen cuts through theContinue reading “Stories in my head #poetry”

Cat and Mouse #poetry #deadlines

  leaving me one morsel follow affection’s trail perfect is the trap “sir, you are no mere cat!” * turn from being shunned closer now you come sidle Cheshire smile “sit with me awhile” * again, I take the bait no exit no escape in your claws another mouse  so many in this house *** sand  anotherContinue reading “Cat and Mouse #poetry #deadlines”
