Poetry
is not
dead.

Tonight's breeze transports her feathers

Back in time to her Caribbean land

Where her smiling mother,

With arms open as wide as the ocean,

Welcomes her sons and daughters

 

To flavorful homemade cooking,

Animated storytelling,

Kitchen poetics and antics,

And laughter's high operatics!

Is it really true what they say,

That the heart always finds its way?

Is it real what I see,

Feathers can sail at sea?

...
