Stars sing your herald
Cold night, crickets quiz
In quietness I lay alone

Haiku of the night 3

Airy evening for all tree dwelling fellows
Sparrows sing, Robins bass as crickets chirp
Two happy lovers sit listening

Hello everyone. I promised to post more about my hometown. I’m having issues uploading images, so I’ll do that once I’m back to town.

Soft wool, fluffy pillow, starry night
Three fellows bidding a shepherd sleep
Crickets sing from cracks in the wall

Sun rays, sea breezes; gold and blue fantasies,
Twilight muse from clouds when evenings approach
Noisy monkeys play beside the raffia palm forest

The Forest’s rhyme

Even before mists and dews evaporate
The green forest was awake, tending to her residents
But the cold iron snake will have none of her benevolence

Haiku: Tides

Sunshine, blue skies and approaching tide
Brown crabs crawl away, walking sideways
Amused egrets follow, escorting their trail

See these sparkle of gold
Brew bubbles across the clouds,

The Baobab

This is for you humble castle, beautiful succour and living citadel,
You whose roots are soft seats; you who shelter ants, mushrooms and birds,
Your leaves are shield from rain, you are a friend to all that may come

Haiku: Smiles

Smiles are colorful dresses,
Bright are the clouds that sail by,
Brighter are lips that wear loving smiles

Haiku: Sunset

Grey shades fall on the land, fast travels the sun through the clouds
Songs of slumber, dog barks, the airy evening’s last memories,
Time to wake all night creatures, crawling or walking

But an escaping rabbit caught her attention instead

Twist and Turns

Twist and turns, that’s the song of life and the road
But crawl, walk, run towards those brown hills,
Dust shall become a dress or a travelling companio

Take a summer stroll down the green bush
Find three squirrels play by fallen tree logs
Splash! A frightened frog jumps into the quiet pond

Teach me to Love you again

For our love’s memory
I cherish your love dose,
Your care and your beauty,
Each time the swift sun rose
Gracefully, I recall our hopes…

But the candle light dwindles
And I miss you, now that it faints

Teach me to love you again
Embrace me when I fail;
The hugs, cuddling, I’ll relearn-
For this promise won’t go ill
And our efforts won’t flop…

Now genuine affection will rekindle
Our fire, slowly we’ll retake all we lost

Okechukwu’s Haiku

The night came and went, but we are awake to Gods call
Though the night brought darkness and bricks of wall
To everyone, men and women, great or small
Yet the love of God wakes with us to perfect us all

Good morning from Africa!

Haiku: Hope

There shines a chain of stars, lined up the
night sky
Glittering to the quiet and queer custom; a perfect night style
Lighting up the hill top; a spectacular view of these forested lands
Let’s hope on Divine providence; it will never forsake our hands

Haiku: Farewell

Memories and tales will be told
Hopes and dreams, in shield
And all will pass into legend
If our paths ever pass again

A short Psalm

When I found Your light amidst the darkness, it made my life so beautiful
Up the mountains, down the valleys, in the hamlets and in towns
The nights bring her blanket upon me, making my heart faint
The cold feast upon my flesh, making me shiver and cry out
But Your Providence surpasses all my loneliness, it brings me bread and wine
Let me drink from Your cup and dine with You on Your majestic table
And take me to a place where my eyes will see the beauty of Your love

Haiku: Vain

Tonight it all became clear that the end was near
All seemed absurd and unnecessary vain here
The Earths’ toil, the men who strife
Asking what is the essence of life?

A Psalm, again.

For the consciousness come thither to my weary
soul
The light shining upon the shades of my life
The hope and love burning above all, in my heart
I say Thanks Lord!

Haiku: The Bridge

What is more beautiful than to build bridges
To bring two different worlds together
To bring in two nations to one embrace
To bring land over a wide spread of water?

First rains- Haiku

Rain in Ovim!
Cool Winds
Mild air
Dark Clouds
Here and there,
Swooshing trees

I think I should my head lay for a while!

Ovim is my hometown, just arrived from the busy congested city.
