These poet words, nuggets out of corruption
or jewels dug from dung or speech from flesh
FROM THE POEM "WORDS" BY MARTIN CARTER (1957)

Samuel Singh - Artist and Poet - New York - USA
Dreaming Reality
by Samuel Singh

In my sleep I saw my native land
once hopeful.
Soil oozing with life,
trees indicating with each other
aiming at the sun
Wallaba and Greenheart like sentinels
sentries of the land.
On the meandering coast
flowers blossomed and
courida bushes stood guard.
Kiskidee and Blue saki
spoke with blended voices
no man could replicate.
A humming bird
darted in the fragrant air
for nectar in a thousand bouquets.
The waters bubbled in
brooks and flowed in rivers;
This land of many waters.
The sight seduced me
and I went there
to be enfolded by the greenery
sheltered by the skies.
Then, I awoke
tears tainted my eyes and
I wept at my loss.
My paradise was no more,
it was touched by me.

FROM MY VOICE - REPRINTED WITH PERMISSION

SAMUEL'S CHOICE
COME SHARE THE WINE
AL MARTINO
Sand swirls,
whips and blinds
consuming all in
its way.
Vast, greedy
sand dunes.
