About Me and My Poetry

Poetry is my hobby. I've successfully completed three University Degrees. BSc. Econ.; MBA; EJD(Law). None of the three had much to do with poetry. But I've neither been able to dispel nor discount significant early influencers in my life. In high school - I met, studied and fell in love with the works of Shakespeare, Chaucer, Milton, Keats, Shelly, Voltaire, Moliere, to name but a few of those great ones. My love-of-poetry mentor, Mrs. Gloria Valere, daughter of great West Indian cricketer-turned-British Baron, Sir Learie Constantine was, for all my High school years, exemplary and most instrumental in nurturing my appreciation of literature. I've paid tribute to her in my Sonnet entitled " A Trini Baron's Georgian". In addition, Dr Randy Hezekiah, memorably, was the one who led me through my French Literary journey. To them, primarily, but others too, I think I owe my love of; and passion for this art form. It is absolutely not their fault if I've not done better. The International Library of Poetry, thankfully, has been a beacon for more than five million poets around the world and for the years 2004 and 2005 this poet readily accepted their invitation to contribute to their publication “Best Poets of 2005”.

FOR THE LOVE OF AMERICA (SONNET)

Radicalizing young millennials
Will not make America great again.
Inappropriate testimonials
Only make America hate again.

The human mind on a collision course,
Seldom veers without expert assistance.
Let's avoid relentless pain and great loss.
All media can support such resistance.

The wise framers of the Constitution;
As if it were written just yesterday,
Had been blessed with unique intuition
That defines our boundaries up to today.

The Beatles have sung: "love is all we need"
They could not have planted a better seed.
