My Sunshine

I call you sunshine in the morning Because when the golden sun rises Thoughts of you come to me Like clouds gathering to give the rain Throw the curtains open Watch the sunshine filter in Thro the windows, painting gold Upon all it touches as it wakes Now there is no star in the morning […]

Glittering Stars and the Surging Wind

Do you see the stars shining up the skies Winking quietly as we stare up? Do you feel the winds surging about the hamlet Pushing all on its way, to and fro? Now the stars are mild, taciturn and free And they shine tonight with wooing airs The quietness that come with the night Confirm […]

Alherin

When the clouds are dark with the rain imminent And the banks overflow with abundance When the scorching sun dries the mud into cakes And leaves the land barren with no fruit The grace of the Lord leads us ahead Bringing us all manner of good tidings Let the Lions roar up the rocks and […]

What do you see in Poetry?

Every morning comes the fever The fever for an adventure Come from writing and love Waltzing blue inked pen, full of life * And when poetry was first made God sent it down to Linguists Saying “What do you see?” They raised their brows quietly Mincing words, struggling to find the description Poetry was then […]

Two Poems for love

.1. The night stars shine gleefully Through the windows I watch them Thinking, wishing and praying Feeling the airs of the moment Now I stare at a lonely star Up, up those black skies The lights coming from this star Was very bright and lively I wondered as I looked through this window I realized […]

Burning Grass

It is the time of the year When the grasses are burned And the fumes dance happily Up to meet the blue skies The hawks and kites circle The fire hunting stray rodents Men beat the bush about Minding the farm crops nearby The smell of the fume Spreads about the place Pushing the acrid […]

Paris

Tonight, we moan For love that is alien to Earth For the pain you bear We cry for you Paris For love, we weep For thee mother Earth For men’s ruthlessness And the hatred that stays Bombs, hate and anger Humanity in taste for vengeance Destroys the efforts of centuries past And innocent souls made […]

Musing: Love

Sometimes love comes to us How we care for those Who have no feelings Those who like statures Care neither for our present Or the future we so seek Sometimes love is cruel She breaks the heart that loves It prolongs pain and suffering The suffering of the mind And the divide behind trust Love […]

There’s a family away from family There’s a home away from home There’s love which must be told And there’s hope for all humanity Now the golden sun rises solemnly Bringing Gods warmth and favor And it sifts through the window sills Greeting all, welcoming us to a new dawn And reminding us of Gods […]

Taming the Wild: Masai

Somewhere in Africa Strong winds swept all to asunder But the Masai march against it With spears black with greasy hands And faces painted like Halloweens ghosts Pushing the tall shrubs down Frighting lions off the forest paths With bare hands they dare the buffaloes And call to the Boar for duels What manner of […]

One Whole Art

Standing alone in the mist Where no man sees The endless stream of wit But when love comes When the sun rises or sets Down. Down the foot of hills And the hawks hang on masts Scouting the land for a final kill The wind wearily sifts about Men, their creaky windows seal The darkness […]
