2015 Deck – Week 13

As strange as it may sound, sometimes when I can’t find a paragraph or two to express what I want to say, the words come out as a poem…



HOME

The call of the Kiskadee
on a rain-kissed afternoon
The sung sweet melody
of an old Tradewinds tune,
The shout of a passing man,
“Creketeh! get yuh Crawbeah!”
And the woman just behind
singing “Broom ay, broom ay”
Sundays- dressed, in church,
And the Saturday movie night,
A show for the family,
or maybe one with a bit of fright,
The sweet salty scent
of the breeze on the seawalls
A tasty mouthful
of pholourie or egg-ball,
Walking the water’s edge,
feeling sand, feeling the foam,
It’s where I belong,
this is Guyana, this is home.

And the Angels cried…

…for Joan and Jerry; Jewel, Jade and Gem

One little angel, said “goodbye” to the two,
“I’m returning to heaven, I won’t make it through”
“Stay with us, we’re three” said they to her,
“Wait let us touch, our mother, our father”

Outside, a Guardian Angel said “It’s time, let her go,
It will soon be your time, your parent’s touch to know”
The little one left for the heavenly gates,
Her sisters embraced, together faced their fate.

Their time had come, outside they came,
their father and mother, crying their names;
Loving hands upon their skins, tears from their parents eyes;
but our Father called to them, back through the skies.

The Guardian Angel said unto the little ones;
“Go back to the Father, with your mother I must stay,
the Father needs you, the world has need of her,
return unto Heaven, and for her, you should pray”

The two then returned from whence they had come,
to be reunited with the other little one;
The mother and father wept, three little ones had died,
In Heaven, three angels embraced, and the Angels cried.


2014 Deck – Week 13

It really wouldn’t matter what photos I took during week 13 of this year, I’d still choose this one.  I could have gotten a spectacular milky way shot, or the best Kaieteur photo ever, even if I had captured the perfect Cock-of-the-rock photo, or gotten the chance to do a photo shoot of Bon Jovi, I’d still choose this one.

We welcomed our second daughter into our family, so I‘ll just stop jabbering and show you the photo I chose, although many of you might have already seen it on Facebook 🙂
