Poetry, writing,and music are at the heart of Charmaine's loves. Not to forget swimming in the ocean,walking and wildlife.


Imagination are your Wings


Sun flames leap sienna orange and cinnamon red

striking a halo of consciousness up ahead

Sky river is engulfing chunks of day bright

allowing the in-seepage of indigo’s might

Silent swooshes and ooshes are felt below

pulling up my head and face from my toes

There go the wings of consciousness

shattering the crystals of nigh-time’s graciousness

Out of the corner of my eye

I see a frozen silhouette flying by

her wings reflecting a gossamer

network of nerve endings found in an astronomer

The wing’s shadows feelings of protectiveness

giving rise to

consciousness protracted

that was seeded in the lotus leaves of exactment

As quick as newborns avert a bad smell

so, too, these night fliers repel

following only the night sky’s

perfumed ties

The night fliers of the moon avoid the echoes that loom

difficulty, restrictions and obstructiveness

The night fliers are now saying

it’s time to bid farewell to the self-denying


My wings are my

      Quite interesting with well presented imagery but the last lines demanded more attention. They said to me it is time we stop denying ourselves the things we want in our hearts but have forsaken for seeking to please "the status quo". I enjoyed it.

      PS when you say a "well done " you sound like a parent or instructionalist. There is no need. We are here for freedom through ideas and imagery. Yes?
