The Hideout

Only voices speak now, wind surge bring their words Birds chatter up the trees, nothing but quiet silence Dews hidden on tree leaves fall, tapping into a mock pool While the bass-throated toad grunt softly at the dancing tree leaves Sometimes the tree leaves fall in circles, gathering solemnly The wind pushing them about, at […]

The Forest

1 You call to me, tonnes of sound whispering through the wind Calling me, singing songs of the wild, emissary of Nature You send the birds, they ‘caw-caw’, they fly the heavily blued cloud They make the skies their tuft, everything in you: their leisure 2 Green trees, red flowers, purple feathers, all in perfect […]

Sunset: Ride of Nature

1 I see you ride with the clouds, hiding your face from mine Blushing before the endless firmaments, resting from the day You have carved a wall of silver triangle upon heaven And upon the midst of the oceans of floating clouds  2 To the ends of the dying day you created a memory,  Streaks […]

Another August Night, a birthday song

1 I hear the wind howl through the gaps again Calling out, solemnly to the young evening  I hear your name being sung, by the days rhyme  Ten thousand voices; everything singing at the same time 2 Cold evening begat bright celebrations Hopeful; boxes of joy, gifts from the heart Green colors, smell of sweet […]

Morning Poem

Lavenders,  gardens, the fair butterfly Gold, sun rising across the blue sky Quietness, serene green forest, birds calling Yawn, a kick and high hopes waking The warmth of the sun, glittering across the fields Buzzing bees, smooth sailing airs, some wildlife Smell of burning food, hawks hunting for food in the hamlet Warm airs rush […]

Rainmaker Tales, the first

When the green neighborhood dance to the call of the wild one Dark are the skies; darker even are the clouds which stalk the rain The wind came swift and slow; rushing at times as petals of flowers dance To the music of the coming rain; to lullabies that made heads bounce And to the […]

Rain on the Window 

I love the sound of the rain when it hits the windows When the multitude descend down from the Heavens Splattering, hitting the Earths crust, smashing the clay  Throwing up sweet scents, one unaccustomed to man The sounds create a regular rhythm which sings a lullaby Soothing are the rains words, mild are her amazing […]

Your eyes

I call you Natures finest, nothing stands touching but your pretty eyes It melts the body and the soul,  it remind me of the wild and of untamed love It is like the Summer sun whose glow shine upon yellow wheat fields It is the touch of the Suns gold which sprays her tentacles upon […]

Muse: Morning in the rain season

Here has become something else without much of the sun The wind takes her toil, she dances about with no care When the South forge towards the cold rainy season The queer climate of the evening is seen in the morning The mildness, softness of the wind makes all, everything cold, Even when the sun […]

Sunrise in Enugu

Alas the sun rise above the clouds Without the mild weather all seem hot Above the hills, greened with vegetation And roof tops, which brown is tanned The clouds blue upon the long firmament Draw very friendly and smiling apparitions One that will definitely see the sun set Birds fly, trees swoosh, the airs sing […]
