Poetry  Illuminates  the Meaning of Life


Reading the Poetry of the Landscape

Reading the Poetry of the Landscape


Poetry is soca, calypso, rara, reggae.

It is the echoes of the abeng across the mountain top;

The cold smoldering seams between a couple’s silence ;

The hot passion of their midnight embrace.

It is the wondrous touch of a baby’s hand

And the last flower flung at a descending coffin.

..from Bridges to Memory: Poems by Marva McClean p. 50



At One With Nature: Thrilled to Here

At One With Nature: Thrilled to be Here

About Dr. Marvalous!

I am an educator, author, and community/cultural activist of Jamaican heritage, deeply concerned about the way we shape and are shaped by society. How do we engage the resources around us to realize our creative potential? How do we give of ourselves to become the change we want to see in this world? It is my intention to engage an audience in energetic and provocative discussions on these issues. https://www.soundtheabengmarvamcclean.com
