Rosy Morning (poem and painting)


Rosy Morning
watercolour on paper

a sliver of time before sunrise

wild buds burst open as if in surprise

raise dainty little heads in expectation

turn motley bright heads in exaltation

eastward into the early haze gazing

at the rising sun on a rosy misty morning

Sunflowers (poem and painting)


watercolour on paper

all across the fields in summer

sunflowers raise their heads

following the sun’s unmatched splendour

challenging Horus with golden crowns glowing

filling the island with bright gleaming orbs

millions of sunrises and millions of sunsets

the short-lived sunflowers

enrobe the red land

giving short-lived summer

the seasonal upper hand

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico (poem and painting)


Old San Juan, Puerto Rico
watercolour on paper

silence in the old city

looking over the blue sea

ancient white buildings

in bright sunlight shimmering

do mossy walls keep

things out or things in?

does the silence mean peace?

do the buildings give rest?

are the mossy walls sound?

is there fun in Old San Juan?
