Darby, sitting in the shade of some green vines.

While drinking Mulberry wine, 

Seedpods of Coral bead vine, or Gidee-Gidee

Strums his guitar.

If only Geraldine’s daughter

A damsel much sought after

Would walk by, he’d show her

Affection so divine.

He plays a song, singing a bit louder as he starts a tune,

Waxing eloquently, about her fair beauty.

She makes his blood roar like thunder

But the girl doesn’t share his fervor.

She hopes instead for , Prince Charming much older.

Ignoring him as she strolls in youthful splendor.

Proudly glowing, and full to bursting with honeyed praise.

Her indifference rankles, the doting dreamer.

Though his previous attempts at romance ended in disaster

For Darby, hope floats optimistic, bringing him closer to the object of his desire.

Early spring narcissus

In the spring she comes to her favorite place down by the water.

Where the willow trees dip low/and the wind blows her hair/ whipping it around her face.

The daffodils smile in welcome/they have yearned to see her/upon their rising.

For the past winter has been long and harsh/the woman bends to pluck a flower as she brings it closer/ and inhales/the scent of the newly awakening earth.

The sounds of nature permeate the atmosphere

A Robin nearby sings/ cherry, cheer up!

The music wraps itself around her lithesome body/ her heart picks up speed/and drums a staccato beat

Exhilaration soars through her blood.

She is not a traditional beauty/ but here sheltered /in natures sweet bower / she radiates a compelling aura.

Harnessed over time and seasons/ of enlightenment and awareness/ through many varied experiences.

The young green saplings/ dotting the expansive marshland /bow in the breeze.

Paying homage to her serene presence amongst them.

She gathers the pieces of a discarded letter

Crushing them in her small hands

An almost burnt-down lit candle on a candle ho...

Up since midnight/

A coherent sentence – evades her

She wants to end it.

Yesterday in the dell/ she happened upon them

Drawn by the sweet tinkling laughter of a woman/in love

It was their own secret place/no one else should have been there

How could he?

Two timing/Matthew Horner

She looks at his photograph hanging in the corner.

He has broken her heart

After promising that they would never part

She has loved and lost

Broken emotions/ and shattered trust

And the tears boil over

Here in her room she mourns

For that which she thought she had.

Hi there,

Hope everyone is doing great.The weather is doing its job,It’s snowing outside and I’m happy and grateful to be warm inside.I’m not angry with mother nature at all, the snow is needed.

Snow Cat

Listening to one of my favorite artists aww…such bliss! So I’ve prayed and prayed some more, done lots of work on myself to get to this point in my life.Truthfully there was a time when I didn’t think I would make it.The last years have been extremely tough on me and my kids. I’ve handled so many insults as I developed and fought for this career.Everyone has their own journey but my message to young women is to establish yourself, get your dreams and ambitions underway first before you embark on mother hood and marriage. If you don’t know who you are? You have no reason being in a committed relationship.I tried compromising,I tried many things but that never worked for my marriage.I had to start all over rafter everything I had worked for imploded, not fun but by the grace of God he sustained me.

I was in a store some weeks ago and Beyoncé’s music was  blasting through the speakers.I tell you this in all seriousness,I heard this one line she was singing about being here and making an impression.It spoke to my heart in such a way that I knew I was meant to hear it.You are here too, no reason to play small.Seize the moment there will be no none else like you ever again, go for it.I speak for myself too.I came from a small village in the Caribbean, some things conspired to bring me thus so far.Namely tenacity, drive, obedience,family and timely help from certain individuals.The truth of the matter is that without God’s intervention none of this  would be possible.We can only do so much on our own.I give God the glory everyday for what he’s doing in my life!

Love Love Love

When I was younger I looked for love , what I found was not long lasting.I embarked on a campaign these past years to love myself .I believe love will find me this time,I don’t need to chase after it.I believe when we are ready good things will begin to happen.I’m not saying to be passive and wait, there is work to do always but when you’re ready what ever you’ve been earnestly working towards will find you. I honestly believe that,I’m not trying to be anyone else I have a platform and I’m just going to flow. The world is crying out for real men and women to stand up and be brave.There are too many empty hurting souls littering the landscape of existence.Can’t you tell? I’m not a Wounded Bird No More! 

So be you always,it will bring so much rewards into your life!
