Thoughts On Eastern Europe

I hope the Ukrainian spirit which represents freedom is not crushed It’s a sunny, peaceful morning here. Birds fly and sing over the rooftops, and squirrels swing from trees. At the same time, beautiful Kyiv is under siege. Traces of smoke from homes rise into the sky. A once peaceful and progressive country, now gradually […]

Lullaby: Starry Night

Lovely starry nightOne of bright galaxiesOf breezy wind & cold.Lonely against the dampMists are to the villageSo pathways are hidden.In the solitary darknessAre branches of the IrokoStanding like lonely knights,Waiting to stab their victim.Let the huts in the valleyEngage in tonight’s fantasyA momentous time, a lullaby

Falling for you by Chidiebere A. Okoroji

Love don’t really cost a dime,Love also isn’t worth dying for,Love shouldn’t be a criteria for kindness,Love should be expressive,And not impressive. Yet, sometimes love spills,It causes us to get ill,Love in return becomes the pill,So much in love to fill,Love is truly the will. I’m falling for you,Cos you light up my day,These flowers, […]
