Abstract Painting – Mother and Daughter – Ink on Heavy Paper
By Marie Jamieson

On this day in the United States and in some countries around the world, as we honor our mothers, I have to admit that mothers can be complicated. Happy the woman who has a loving relationship with her mother! I did once…before our thirty-year separation.

My mother migrated to the United States. I stayed behind in Guyana, got married, became a mother of two, and later migrated to Brazil. My mother and I became different individuals. Our values and priorities in life diverged.

With Confucius: Morality is Heaven! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

With Confucius: Morality is Heaven!

By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Confucius

Confucius

We met at Hyde Park in London. We were from different worlds. He was Confucius, teacher and educator who is known for his lessons on propriety, virtue  and morality. I was a transplant. My ancestors went from India to the Caribbean and many of us are now part of a second indenture in which questions of identity, inclusion and outsidership are constantly asked and debated.

We sat on an elongated bench that overlooked the pond and the sounds of the Sunday soapboxes filled the air. The speakers bawled about every injustice imaginable and one man in a red suit called for the end to the world. This brought a short applause from a nearby group and a smile from Confucius.

“In the Waters of Time” – Poetry by Brazilian Poet Flora Egídio Thomé

As yet another African-American community erupts in the face of police brutality, I offer the poetic wisdom of Brazilian educator and poet, Flora Egídio Thomé (1930-2014). In my Poetry Corner May 2015, I feature six Haiku poems from her collection In the Waters of Time (Nas Águas do Tempo), published in 2002.

The title of her collection alludes to the fluidity of time.

Born in times of water
in the waters of time I am…
drifting alone.

Water gives life to our planet. The oceans cover 71 percent of the Earth’s surface. Even our bodies are composed of water: 60 percent in adult men and 55 percent in adult women. Because of this life-giving water, we exist and experience time.
