CARIBBEAN GIRL ~ A Blank Verse Sonnet





I come to the House of my Girlfriend

Man friend tellin' I'm fool "Wastin' time with Girl !"

Come on Man ~ Come fish for Golden Snapper 

BUT I decide to visit my Golden Girl ! 


I bring her flowers ~ Her dress is patterned

With love birds ~ she has a ring in each ear

I am ready for her Love and she for mine

NO FISHIN' ~ For her Love ~ I'm now wishin' !


Her body has the scent of Khus Khus grass

The sweet fibres she put between linen sheets

She has washed her mouth with milk for Kissing

She has washed her body with pure water from the well


Now ~ because she does not wish to rush our Love 

She offers me plums ~ and glass of date wine !


Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Caribbean Love ~ BRIAN

            Your poem catches the lilt and flavor of the Caribbean exquisitely, Well done, sir!

            • BRIANSODES

              Thanks LOUIS ~ I agree ~ a Caribbean Poem must have RHYTHM which is why each line is co-syllabic. West Indian Poetry is always sensuous ~ BRIAN

            • FredPeyer

                  I have a great girl friend from caribe. She is black and beautiful. I love her very much. She is special. Your poem is special too. You are being inspired about girls.

                  • BRIANSODES

                    Thanks MALU i always tell my students (M & F) to respect Ladies and to the Ladies to respect themselves. I tell them that when God had created Adam ~ he stood back and took a close look at him and thought "I can do better than that" ~ AND HE DID ! You are all Daughters of Eve and you are all Beautiful ! Thanks Heaven for LADIES ~ Awesome ! Girls are inspiring ! Hugs ~ BRIAN
