Then  spreading delight and succour
by a scented presence
in a parched land and hearts
craving
for bountiful rains that wipe
away the summer- grime with
icy fingers.

Some times
some arrivals can be
so welcome
munificent!

Arrival short poem

Between she and he and sexuality swoops a gender patenting a word, as it is, at the birth’s door pretending to be a kiss of radical thought. Mediocrity always has an intentionality with colored plumage, a passionate dance before the
