There was our Heaven
tending sheep and cows,
sliding down hillsides on
cardboard and the laughter
of children.
There was our Heaven,
stoning mangoes and
feeding them to goats just
to watch them spit
out the seed.
There was our Heaven,
where the wind blew through
wavy grass and we
fished tadpoles from the tank
and sang to the sea.
There was our Heaven,
where quietly we wondered why
this hillside was named Paradise
when church and school taught
it was always elsewhere.
There was our Heaven,
On Paradise Hill,
we alone knew the truth of it,
but forgot again on each
trek homewards

Early mornings escape me
when the night weighs heavy
on your side.
Routines have become
empty moments where
gestures have replaced thought,
and every movement of lips
a prayer to forget
your name.
We move with care,
a life without flowers,
where photos are searched in secret
and weekends are filled
with you behind closed doors.
The candles have been boxed
to extinguish a life
still pacing these halls.
Late nights, early mornings,
schedule days full
of breath and
But we all see
when you ripple across
faces turned to
walls, windows, distance.
But what to do,
when every day has become
a ritual of you

The End of the Alphabet
You have lost the alphabet
I bent to place mouth
to your cool neck
to feel the vibration of a name
tingle on my lips,
but they came away cold
and malnourished as a January moon.
Where did you lose it?
I searched for clues,
tried to read the wrinkles of flesh,
but I lacked a rosetta stone;
even your palms gave no crazed reading
to your lost syllables.  
Is a language very large? I wonder
as I search pockets,
ring boxes, chests, and forgotten books.
But I know!  They are trapped, your words.
Faintly, they caught in throat,
boa constricted in quest,
and choked on lack of air.
I place ear to throat
to hear a last echo,
but all has faded to stillness.
You have lost the alphabet
No longer a word
made flesh

Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
United States
I grew up in the Caribbean on a island called Bequia, where I fell in love with the beauty of nature. I since then have moved to like Palm Springs, California, and Brugge, Belgium one of the cultural Capitals of Europe. I recently relocated to Miami, Florida where I get to enjoy the Sun & Surf at my pleasure.
In each place, as saw a different type of beauty, and have tried to capture that beauty with my camera. In addition, I love to travel and take every opportunity I can to hop on a plane and discover a new place, or just jump in my car and go exploring with my camera.

Enjoy my work, and feel free to leave comments.

Current Residence: Currently lost in the abyss of his mind.
Favourite style of art: Photography
Operating System: Mac OS X
Personal Quote: "Shit happens, deal with it!"
