Carnival(Notting Hill)




North, south , east , west

Humanity gathers


Black , blacks, Africans

Caribbeans, whites

Loud earth shattering

powerful music

Reggae , samba, soca


Gyrating waists,

stomping the earth

Panties, bras, bikinis

big and small

Women and men

old and young gentry

Few ganja puffs

Colourful , gay dresses

File past

In celebration

Notting Hill




Notting Hill


Emerging from the shadows

humanity gathered

Black and Black

African and whites

Rest of the world

Londoners in nature

loud drumming

and dancing


Powerful music

Reggae, high life, soca, samba

skimpy skirts


Coloured panties and bras

Swirling and wiggling

waists and bodies

in celebration of life

and living

big party

Massive police presence

On Notting Hill

An August day
