Leonard Dabydeen Poems
The Color of My Skin
I may bring to your attention this posted affirmation through the color of my skin: that I am what I am.
A Crow's Heart
Shadows move among them, amorphous like the wind
An Uninvited Guest
AN UNINVITED GUEST Let me visit you today
A Gifted World
As Tears Fall
As tears fall upon dehydrated cheeks making their own free rivulets without interference
This cool morning breeze keeps my heart beating with joy:
She creeps around my room lulling any sound whispering in the creak of my chair or the opening of a cabinet
Always On My Mind
Always From The East
Now the British comes to shore wet and tired from colonial gatherings he sits on the bench in the park smoking a cigar
Your melodious voice brings illimitable pleasure
Happy Valentine's Day!
This tiny package you posted to my heart is stamped with a scarlet rose and laced with a golden bow something tells me in this candle light
We Will Remember You
In many different ways. Forgetting will be difficult to remember. Each episode takes another turn in the journey. How memory is so nostalgic is beyond the life of me. Sometimes
Our Life Path (Maha Shivaratri)
Enter the nostrils blend secretly with the air as I breathe precious Chandan
Don't Be Afraid To Cry
Who will come to your rescue when the pain is erupting
In God We Trust
If so much in faith in God we trust
our love to share forever we must
lift our spirits in outreach so high
sifting away the rubbles to see the sky
every darkness in time will vanish
every light will sparkle without tarnish.
If with bruised hands our pain we must endure
our hope in time will keep us secure
