Poem: December Love:

…….I wonder, what will I see?

“Will I see Magnolia bloom, a smile—a gloom,

or icicle falls, upon the now dry trees?

The concrete street, the snowflakes fall

Lay, oh so beautifully around the window pane!”

“Will you my beloved, be by my side,

—dreaming of me?”

Or will I set my heart—make believe;

that you cherish, can warm my body,

—the frozen me:

I wonder, “What will I see?”

“Will I see the good in all, the good in you,

most of all the good in me?”

even when you are not here—still I hope,

you will remember ‘the forgotten,’ me!

About the author


I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for various great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others I admired. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme using giants and various people to help develop within and allowed the higher God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness and love in me. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my spiritual gifts. Peace and Blessings!
