Old Trader Vic Bergeron

Old Trader Vic Bergeron
         Limping through time
                  one leg dragging
                           pirate-like
Across almost a century
         of simple syrup and rums,
                  leaving a hint,
                           here and there
on passion fruit,
         dragon fruit,
                  fruit bats
                           and joy!
Oh! The Joy!!
         A gentleman
                  sitting at tables

                           of many islands.

Cortijo Fain

Rain of Andalucia falls in an olive grove
         tap tap tapping on old leaves,
remnants of seasons remembered.

A white farmhouse
          sits posing gracefully,
its skirt of trees spread over the hills.


Lightening cracks February’s sky.
