Capricious Weather

“In Mauritius the weather has been acting very strange lately. This Winter doesn’t seem like all of the other winters I’ve known.

The Colours Of Our Dream

That’s What Women Are

Happy Women’s day. I hope that all women secretly thinks alike, and that this poem – compared to women, I compare thee, and brave womanhood – drools with the quintessence of women’s sensuality, and as well as women’s yearnings.

Though able-bodied, I feel this incapacityThe incapacity to shake myself upRight from the start, when the sun risesFor I wake up to forget, everything that I might be I then search within my mindThis wondrous mind of mineForking deeply, digging, searchingFor that missing piece hidden deep,That one clue that I need to find I wantContinue reading “Everything that I might be”
