Walls

Listen
carefully,
walls can
talk

they speak
of 
origins,
ocean passages


quarried ethnicity
handled, heft
and hewn.
Listen up,
for all
will
fall.

Full Harvest Blood Moon


She danced with the cherry tree after breaking free
from behind the mountain.

When the shadow of the home of humankind 
claimed her radiant face, ours upturned as one
and basked in the silent awe of her pale blood blush .

Sun, heat and shade

It is so hot. Energy is scarce and calls for a stroll in the shade of the cocoa,  yearning for a rustle of leaves from a cooling breeze.

New Beginnings

It has been  over a year and, one day, I might write about the time spent away, but for now I am happy to share the beginnings of a new project being undertaken by an inspirational friend of mine.
The space in which this story starts has held many stories before this one,

but before very long, here, as you step through the door, your senses will  be greeted by the familiar, intoxicating (and yet, surprisingly, still little known) world of all that is cocoa and chocolate.
It seems fitting that these walls will hold history, process and the magic of artisans learned over centuries, whilst providing a special space for everyone to relax  learn, unwind, share and enjoy.
I have been very fortunate to be present at the beginning of several of my friend's projects and so look forward to seeing where this one will transport us all.

Frog


Found frog again
today.

She was lying
on top of the
newly cleared
ground where
we used to have
a little house once
upon a time.


I don't think
she is an
ancient
artefact,
possibly

she was bought
from Michael
who carves
stone items
locally
but I really
can't
remember
when or
where I got
her from.
She had
survived a
cutlass blow
or two...
but it was good
to hold her again.

In Kalinago
cosmology
'Frogwoman'
is associated
with the rainy
season so I am
hoping that our
reunion is a
good omen
and a sign
of water
to come.
