sunrise float in calm sea

Immersed into warm saltwater

The calm sea at sunrise


Lie back

Inhale deeply

Chest rises

Torso floats

Legs follow


Breath held

Body suspended


Head tilted back

Eyes closed


Surrendered to stillness

I am safe here, held

I feel you


Exhale fully

Breath releases

Head lifts

Chest lowers

Folding at the hips

Legs sink slowly

Feet touch the sand


Inhale again 

Chest rises

Torso floats

Feet rise up

Legs follow


Breath held

Body suspended


Head tilted back

Eyes closed


Surrendered to stillness

I am safe here, held

I feel you



pier wind blowing


I witnessed (awestruck)

thousands upon thousands

of tiny butterflies

migrating across the sea

into shore today


Their whitish-yellow wings

fluttered wildly for hours

in a relentless wind

driving them onward



to the winds of change

letting go

and being taken

to wherever

they must go next

to whatever

they must do next


Butterflies aloft

in a treacherous journey

across the sea

with no choice



by the forces of nature

the call

of animal instincts

the chemistry

of bodily secretions


Do they hope?

Do they wish?

Do they pray?

Please, help me make it to shore



Moringa goes dancing with a cantaloupe

You heard the news? Moringa gave birth to twin baby coconuts!

Mommy and babies are doing fine; in fact, they’re thriving, because…. Well, because we’re talking about Moringa, the superfood goddess of the century!… She’s a miracle tree…. and she’s one hot Momma!


Moringa always has plenty of energy, and she loves to have a good time! She’s ready for a night on the town with her girlfriends… So, call the babysitter, … or better yet, have Daddy Banana stay home and entertain the little ones for the night!

Moringa called up her best friend Candy (a cantaloupe) and invited her to go out dancing.

In case you didn’t know, cantaloupe is a mystifying fruit. (It’s no wonder she is also a goddess.) Cantaloupe contains a wide variety of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients and has a sweet, rich flavor. As a woman, the cantaloupe is very… complicated, yet alluring.

Candy: Well, I just don’t know what to wear—

Moringa: I’ll lend you … something green.

Candy: No–wait…. Green’s just … not my color. Pinks and reds really complement my skin tone.


Moringa: Okay,… whatever. Hey, can you bring some of that cantaloupe musk?

Candy: Yeah… Can we go dancing on the beach?

Moringa: On the beach? …. Sure, I guess….

Candy: Well, it’s a full moon, you know.

(Goddesses, especially fruity goddesses, like to dance on the beach under a full moon).

First, Moringa and Candy went skinny-dipping in the warm Caribbean Sea.

Then, they tried on some different outfits (Girls just love dressing up for each other).

“I’m tired of this musk,” Candy the Cantaloupe said, “I want to try something new.”

“How about … something sweet and zestful?” Moringa suggested.

So … the two goddesses mixed together apple cider vinegar (for zest), coconut oil (for smoothness), and organic, locally sourced honey (for sweetness) — a personally customized dressing.

I poured myself a generous helping of smooth, zesty sweetness….

Meanwhile, Moringa and Candy danced euphorically on the beach. They had plenty of energy, especially considering the health-enhancing qualities of apple cider vinegar.

I felt like this after eating my Zestful Summer’s Moringa Cantaloupe Salad….

If you would like to dance ecstatically for hours, you might consider adding cantaloupe to your diet. Watch this video and learn about the many surprising health benefits of cantaloupe.




The pearly-scaled mermaid submerged

Hiding herself in the sea

Where she found three young black boys

Adrift amidst the corals

Seeking the goddess


When she approached them

All they knew was to ensnare

to vilify, to rape her in their minds


She retreated to shore

Finding no solace

Holding the severed phallus of boyhood

Lost to a world of corruption


Shedding pearls of tears onto the sand
