Write As Rain

Breeze rippling sheer
embroidered patches
as sunlight streaming
shadows prance
across plastered walls…
As precipitation mist
cool Floridian rays
beaming tin roofs.

Winter temps once
again; no show.
pre-Black Power,
post-slavery;
steel railroad tracks
line wooded villages
alluring Negro Parramore
affluent historical influence.

Simple sassy society
triumphant triad; God,
family, integrity…
As orange blossoms
scents catch rides on
gulf ocean breezes;
lakes squeeze catfish
and mullets squirm.

Black power, affirmative
Action-Jackson, Gen-ex,
Millennials; table of contents
of discontent line groves
of grown at thirteen; Mom
teens and classic hassles
of graduation tassels blow
green-orange, maroon and gold

Story be told…South Street
runs rich with dissecting
black blood across OBT,
Gore, Grand, and Church.
So many secrets roam streets
of culture, like vultures tearing
back the skins of unresting
Heros and Sheroes of color.

Why Do I Write?

Why Do I Write? short poem

Poetry is the heat, a part of my flame, it keeps me cool, envelopes in a frame. Am I sentimental, idle and worthless guy? Feeling keeps me human, passions let me fly. A force compels me to etch on papers

After The Rain

After The Rain short poem

After the rain Luminescent clouds made creative shapes, Appearing out of nowhere, A magnificent double rainbow, Natures twins, Sent from the Heavens, Nature’s finest work, The colors were bright and in every shade you can imagine, Shining high in the

When They Write

When They Write long poem

A story they have to tell One that can teach a lesson like a folktale With a lot being observed And knowing that no dish has been served They grab a pencil and paper Cause the pages are still eager
