On my mind

Leave a comment

Many things are on my mind this minute.  Decisions, decisions, I got to make decisions. And I’ve got a sudden and strong urge to read Alice in Wonderland all over again. While I am making up my mind on too many fronts, I will share some more of what was on my mind when I put together Mindfield, my first collection of poems. The poem Mystery Lover was first published in “Confluence” an anthology of St. Lucian poetry. It has  since been included in two other anthologies.

Mystery Lover

Whose footsteps whisper
Secrets with my floor,
Who comes knocking at my door?

Who’s caressing my desires,
Who slips the lingerie off my feelings,
Who strokes my passion screaming
Louder than a village crier,
Who manifests to all the world
The love that lurks in my apathy?

Who storms the gates of my fantasies,
Who invades the territory of my dreams,
Saddled on my emotions,
Who comes riding my thoughts?

Mystery lover,
So many meadows of majorettes
Where jockeys gallop, racetracks
Of swooning debutantes,
Why have you chosen
To trot on my mind?
