The Table is Set

………………. oh so lovely,

Who will be dining?

Could it be me—the lucky?”

Rejoice, there’s a wedding ring,

for the chosen,  a mighty King,

Yours decorated with fine diamonds,

Shining, bubbling crystals,

Colorful face, nothing artificial,

No songs play: just music in me

Sweet wine: what a grand eloquent feast

Jesus hanging above it all

Rich—with laughter so it seems,

plenty greens, in my poetic dreams

thanks for inviting me,

“You sure build up my self-esteem!”

ladies & gentlemen, boys and girls

Rejoice! “ lets’ celebrate a grand new world,

a brand new 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 God consciousness of my mind to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a wildflower, singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
