I catch a mood.
For some days now I feel it coming on, I feel it in me bones, stretching and pulling in me joints. I feel it in me temperature, warm, warmer. As for me throat, it did feeling a li’l funny for a good couple o’ days now.
I don’t know how I catch this mood. I don’t know if is because I sleeping regular hours, eating plenty green, leafy bhagee and red tomatoes, and squash and long green bora, and cool, sweet watermelon, papaya, or yellow, yellow mangoes from Neighbour garden.
I don’t know if is the morning walks, or if is the duahs [prayers], or the people I meet, or what.
All I know is I catch a mood.
I feel as if I drink honey, and it tickle me mouth, then trickle into me veins, and pour sweetness into me heart and head. And my throat? My throat feel funny haha, I want to laugh, I want to sing tunes like that old, old song, I’d like the teach the world to sing in perfect harmony.
Yes, yes, I know I could sit and prop sorrow, worry about goals, dreams, where life going, take on the poverty here, and suffering in the world, but right now, I feel like that vin-viny with the iridescent wings that zwoops past me ear zwing this morning when I went walking.
Inside o’ me I got a frisky li’l breeze that lifting curtains and letting sunshine in. And the sunshine making me insides sparkle like glass and if you tap me, I gon go ‘pinnnng’.
Yeah, yeah, I catch a mood, and I hope you catch it too.
