' Senryu, your mystery (for Sandra Midas)


Senryu, your mystery haunts my nights
Like black history
Africa's taste of bitter slavery.

Senryu, your eyes
Are like a knife plunged thru' the heart
Bleed pains of my strife.

Senryu, for love
I go thru' ends of your world
To find hurt in return.

Senryu, my song for you water maiden
See you dance the limbo of my sins
In an eternity of man's slavery.

Senryu, I found you
By the shores Kharon ferries shades
Where you had hidden your love.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
