Love

There’s a lot of bitterness in the world, we need to spread some love You are like the beautiful golden sunriseYour smiles are like the petals of a flowerWhen you smile I’m lost in lettersI’m happy in your hallowed happiness

For You

For you, I will continue to loveWhen your hair falls by your side, I see your mouth pout, my heart leaps insideSo the sun sets sail, to days where our youth fade like falling tree leaves;To establish memories of us, our experiences, felt and unfelt to relive

Muse: When You Smile

It’s past 6 AM, and I’m up musing about love. I woke up writing a love poem. Love makes us do crazy things, right? Most of my love messages transcend a person, it’s my passion for humanity, for life and hope. February is marked to celebrate love. Expect more love musings! Good morning. Muse: When […]

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, […]

Love Quote

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything – F. Scott Fitzgerald

Colours by Chidiebere A. Okoroji

Poetry collection:Rough, Tough and Enough Colours are something we don’t hide,Even if it changes, it takes no side,One heart, one soul for a ride,Love, hate, trust all wild,My circle, my life, my faith, so wide. Colours digging fast for a dot,For a moment I went deep in thought,So much I wasn’t taught,These colours — in […]

Lights: Last Blog 2021

There’s no moon tonight, just galaxies. Despite the littering stars up the sky, there’s pitch darkness on the path leading to my granny’s place. This night is unusual. I know this small village to be cold at night. However, tonight the aura is indifferent. The air is mild and the harmattan breeze is nowhere to […]

Country aura

brown leaves, hazy wind, undulating hills, grey earth, bean cakes, smiling vendors, acrid smoke, rising from huts, drifting hawks, surfing the skies, green tuft, on the patched fields, mild airs, sleepy country breeze, sunshine, favourite aura of light, home, where love and the heart is

An old man once told me the story of how as a young man, his mother used to ask him: “What is the most important part of your body?” Through the years, he would guess what he thought was the correct answer. The first time, his answer was: “The ears.” The mother replied: “No, many […]

I felt roses by Alexander Okoroji

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, […]

It’s all based on trust, unconditional love, and acceptance. That’s what family is. Family is a cushion and citadel. Family is a home […]

Life, A Walk In The Park

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 […]

A tranquil evening is nature’s wayOf welcoming a weary shepherd,Sundown – his thoughtful views heralds,Memories in which trees fiercely danceAnd soft grasses wait where birds fly home
