It was a dream, The deepest of it, The silent have it, But this moments stole it, I whisper a little, She knew, It was love, She felt it, I never wanted it back, I gave it, A shyly shaky witty love. Oh no, What if I dent the colours, I spoilt it with odours, […]
The past won’t make me think less of us The worlds pain and hurts won’t either So I invented a formula to love you, To make you smile in several ways, Tell you the story of the tall giraffe And how she ate the sick moon half, Perhaps we can act the noisy two You, […]
For love’s memory I cherish this dose, This care, your beauty, Every time the sun rose I remember this feeling
A few miles away, stood a hill Which the simple villagers revere It is said that all cold and wind Came from the foot of the hill And so the villagers admired it, If their day was cheerless and hot It is that someone angered it, Took a piss on roots by the hillside Or […]
Bright evening Sparrows sing, Lovers listen
Your voice wakes the wild nature in me When you sing the lyrics gladden my soul I adore those moments you look over your shoulder To catch my happy stare; as you dance away, laughing *** You dress like tulips that grow on the farmyard Fresh, delicate pink, lively as green bean pods Scenting the […]
Life is like a walk in the wooded green park Where strange fine flowers and plants grow, And pests; rodents, bunnies and insects abound On the roadside will be mistletoes, thorny roses, even cactuses With so many harmless weed plants sprouting all about They hurt if one touches them and won’t If one will let […]
Waking sun reminds of onsetsFor the past is kept without,So light dew may bless the moment
Keep It On Lately, I have attempted to write more about love. In doing so, I decided to take some inspiration from my old work. I visited my archive and there’s a lot of rusty but good stuff. I grin when I see my old writing and how it has changed over the past decade. […]
We are one human race Tolerance I define tolerance as a beautiful word that can change the world for good. It’s accepting people for who they are. Racism, nepotism, tribalism, fanaticism, etc arise when we refuse to accept that other people deserve the rights we enjoy. When we teach our kids that there’s only one […]
Glad that the night brought pleasant airsThe shepherd lay to relieve the day’s stressCrickets chirp, the night is absolutely youngBut dreams come fast to a weary nomad
Love is a beautiful thing I love the dimple gracing your face, Your smile and our mild embrace I love the joy I get when you smile And the thoughts my mind derives To taste the chilli and turmeric, Tasty soup that makes me frolic! I love the airs around you, Roses, lavender – nice […]
Love is not a game, it’s a beautiful gift. Even a god finds it hard to love and be wise at the same time. Aristotle.
The sun rises before my eyes,Light throws her veil on earthThe breezes travel southOn their pathLetting lyrics,Within, withoutI see how lucky I amTo have this unfailing love
Free as the wind was heWith eyes glowing wild as tanCarved on steady rocks, his path,Submitting to nature, his passion To him walls are barriers,But fearless, he frolics aboutWading through life’s tideLike a lonely cloud, wandering,Heed to nature, his precious being
Morning wind, crisp smell, Moist dew, sunrise, lovely land Take it all in and live in it, Inhale deeply before it’s gone
words may dabble,but actions won’t,love works things out!
I tell the trees of your sounds and they are jealousWhen you fall, birds, the wild, all elements stop to listen,To hear Nature sing while she wash her garment in the mist
Bird songs, butterflies, and sun rays,Fruits of peace from the sanctuary, Nature’s gratification to all mankind
Do you believe that love wins in everything? I do. I’ll always choose the love team. A million tongues may singYou, I, our stars, we all win!
A host of shrieking crickets A plethora of frogs abundant And birds of vocal strength Perform a chorus tonight, Wistful, thaw rhythms soft Saved for a dull night For two gentle hearts In natural silence rest I listen to your heartbeat On my embrace, this night
stars shine to show the way drawing my paths on earth I set out, I set out to meet you, you traveller casting shadows of my past after, I sing joyfully when memories come even then, you hastily return to me when days travel, I observe lovely lights and hope in poems, to write of […]
Poets as Lovers I assume all poets are lovers. So every poet love can be compared to a hysterical character. I put it thus: a poet’s love is like a crescendo, other times it goes decrescendo or fairly in between. It may be lenient, sometimes it’s wild! So pay attention to your impressions, my friends. […]
Little Excuses Laziness and procrastination, two nasty brothers always look for excuses. It’s raining cats and dogs out there and the day just turned dark. Initially, I was like ‘ah, there’s a storm out there, thus I need a little nap’, but I know better. This morning rain won’t cheat me out of being productive. […]
Busy bees are hairy and elegantThe wind sour with her fury flightRoses are red, honored by the breezeThe night shivers in this chilly sneeze For you, I’m a nightingale of twilightAnd I shall chant a serenade tonight
slight thoughts on a quiet twilight of trodden paths, and marks left memories sport, cuddles soft, starry nights you and I – a team, lovebirds, to our silence listen, sounds only known to two cheerful hearts, the verge and onset
what do you perceive when you look into my eyes? is it an orbit formed from love where stars shine in the reverie? mornings maybe airy so curtains may dance, my arms are hairy so it’s a sheer thriller, now, I’ll let you know, you’re a creator of great happiness, for every time you smile […]
Things may change, but everyone begins and ends with the family.
she wears pleasant flowersand bakes cakes of fine flourwhen she sings in the morningmy heart dance with her song
Your pretty face reminds me of the sun,When she rose from the back of many hillsDragging her gold blanket before farmsSo if I am to paint a beautiful museI will imagine sunrise over wheat fieldsAnd imminent evening when birds fly home
Hate destroys the very structure of the personality of the hater… When you start hating anybody, it destroys the very centre of your creative response to life and the universe; so love everybody. Martin Luther King Jr Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat. Henry Emerson We […]
I knew to love because of you Hold my hands, dear aficionado, let’s watch the shining stars drift Upon this lovely moonlight, this will remain our favourite moment
However things turn out, you’ll always be my love.
Love like precious elixir, Green, blue, of many hues Pure as the sweet spring – Leaping water, living waters, Flowing fast, east and west, In haste to lands far away, I desire, fetch this life-giver, This abundant zest of vitality So that the glamorous spring May birth a new beginning One that won’t lack anymore
There’s so much power in love and compassion. The first part of healing is finding the courage to forgive. Let your message to the world be one of kindness and humanity. Love is the fuel that keeps the world glowing. Light the world.
There’s a reason that you are the one. When there are many motives and whatnot; in you, I found a reason to love again.
Twists You may agree that lemons are not as sweet as they look. Some of the species are not just sour but bitter. When life gave us lemons, we learned to make lemonade and every poet knows how to paint this well. Enjoy this piece straight from eSwatini. Sweet Lemons I wish I could use […]
I cheer you to this drama; not Romeo’s, nor Juliet’s, One for everyone, under the full glare of the setting sun tide So stand aside, and let this new dance learned to unfold, Come beloved, allow this moment to bless our lands, Let me tell love stories and prove how love can set all free
I love how the fire gives rise to dancing things; Flickering fire tongues lick the wood that sits astride, The odd form of musketeers and brave swordsmen Of likenesses behind the light walls, we watch plays Fierce kingdoms, which I may liken to Camelot With her chariots riding off to skirmish, Dire wolves in the […]
Everybody deserves love Love transcends the color, Or the human figure we see, It’s not skin, hair, or wits So wherever it comes from Or wherever it is headed Don’t be afraid, just love Don’t let it fade, just love Not trying to beget not knowing For love is the true way of life
