    Running against da rocky landz

    sparkling bluerayz of reflection captured
    to da great out pour of a waterfall,
    cautionly reality with gravity spills,

    To the reflective island bay,
    shelter a seasonal course of clearity
    of nature’s oneness great forces,
    Da voiceless splash of da slope invade
    calling of da lunar pulling current

    I love connecting under water-falls,
    to feel all it's magical, mesmerizin,
    moments of mysteries in nature. ...
    I know it was an wave of lyrical poetry
    that had its inception of da waterz

    My soul is like a shallow wail set at sea
    clearly, I sings in the tempest’s of da bay,
    shifting current of the storm whereas
    i shall move like da water emerge of my soul
    as my spirit rise upon da sun dial as i rain.

    Rich, like Miss Lady, I also thought of a poet of the Harlem Renaissance.

    Your piece had an "island" feel to it for me, and I thought of Claude McKay because he was Jamaican.

    But, this piece is ALL yours, no doubt! The imagery in this is awesome! It was lyrical, physical and spiritual for me!
