silent thoughtsa gentle nightmemories sportand pillows softa starry twilightcheerful heartsto silence listenharmony knownbeginning and end
Getting up to faint bird tweetsWhen golden shine sifts through curtainsAnd morning airs – so delightful and swiftWander through this little town I heard the older folk greetThey talk of night’s heavy rainBut as the storm is now pastA mild drizzle cheers the lawn Sunlight warms my room and townEach cosy day is a blessing […]
When I wait under the old mango treeI count the glittering stars far awayAnd laying on soft sandy soilI get a better glimpse of the dark skiesThe wind is my guest,She rents her cold self to me,She whispers tunes of natureAnd drag tree leaves to fan me,It’s an evening of quietness and cold,Moments of thought […]
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
Would you dance with me under the impressive glare of moonlight?
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, […]
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. […]
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.
Our first neighbour is our environment – the air we breathe, the food we take in and the natural things that we see around us. Daybreak is her garment She dresses with flowers, Sings with voices sweet & soft And flirts with her helpers Good neighbour, fair nature, Flirting wind, green paradise Favourite aura, great […]
Come closer, come hear the song I must sing this nightCome let us sit under the mango, let us enjoy the moonlight,The sweet breeze brings memories, like the quiet riversideWhich flows freely, running in peaceful haste thru the wild The cold day took her toil on our strengthBut the night fire hands us some warmthLean […]
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
Nightfall, one of tremendous cold, Glowing stars, showing the path Another stanza, a song of the heart Driving through the darkest sky An emotion known only to the herder
Dew melt and drip off tree leaves, Pretty hues huddle, some rise, some fall The smell of cooking in the distant village, Morning their shy friend is finally awake Greenfields stretched into the horizon Monkeys yawn, birds tweet, rodents race, Treelines summon their leafy branches Worms are first with the feeding riot Tree leaves fall, […]
words may dabble,but actions won’t,love works things out!
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!
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 […]
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
I fall each time I stare into your eyes, Your loving smiles are like daybreak It provides strength to a weary heart, So I cherish every moment of affection
A person with compassion prefers peace because violence does not stand a chance. Love perseveres; love is not proud. Kindness is one of the highest forms of love.
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.
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
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
Long before this nightfall, I’ll freestyle, just to see you smile.
Spread your palms, take my hands, Let’s break out from the circle, Hover about, see the morning smile, Tonight you will be my little dancer
Colorful fireworks rise and roar, Splendid ribbons fall and cheer, We stand astounded To symphonies of festivities and The awe of love proclaimed
If we let our light shine we are unconsciously permitting others to do the same Light Someone’s World How can we make our lights shine? When our deeds or words light the heart of someone. Let’s explain this with an example: a dark room represents gloom and sadness, and so does anyone who happens to […]
Green trees may turn grey Life may be sweet or sour Day and its hosts, rise & fade But I will go with you Wherever the wind leads
Nature’s beauty is best pleasure The happiest people are contented, Those who value what they have: Slivers of peace, happiness, and love Harbingers of hope and fulfillment Happiness is part of nature’s mission It begets immunity in the flurry, Dwell in purity and simplicity From the hustle and noise without Happy people are genuinely rich […]
Permit me to etch this melodious stanza upon your heart Let the verbal rhythm be greeted with this fair talking drum, Give me your ears, let them listen as lyrics tell of the night frog Who challenged the melodious nightingale to a song duel
Let this nice morn, a huge favor grant; Let it be known: I cherished you first
Falling In Love I think that falling in love is a risky business. There is the risk of falling, haha. One might become a shadow of himself in the process. What I mean is, if anyone ventures into the business with all his being, he might become a changed person either for good or bad. […]
Soft wind, herald of nightfall, darkness draws near, While happy sheep enjoy the fast surge of the evening tide The week ends today, but beers wait for herders at the inn
Gold from daylight is upon my glass window Her warmth is pure, a dew upon the fine green grass If sun flies parade, why then the empty front yards, Oh – a horde of vampires trolling the townlet in disguise Two giant lizards quarrel over a weary worm I have seen the mother hen busy […]
In African fables and tales, it’s believed that people have met with good luck just by greeting strangers Welcome to the beautiful morning of June 1st, 2021. By African tradition, it’s formal to say greetings to anyone encountered on the way. Some cultures consider it taboo not to say greetings to people (especially the aged). […]
Love is beautiful indeed I call it a fruit brown with ripe Which, when pressed, gives juices It is a little lads bicycle ride Down the lonely dusty road Love is a song that is written On panes of truth and care So I love not because of what one does But because of how […]
As the golden day breaks, It gave scented fog of hope When the lovely sun of joy rise So ina murna – I’m delighted, When you look at me each morning To share this unerring, loving smile To admit that you love me like bread loves butter
You are the song in my heart The moments I crave within
Hausa Language A greater percentage of the population in Northern Nigeria speak Hausa language. I lived in Northern Nigeria for roughly a year. Looking back to those months, I will say it was eye-opening and fun. I learned some of the culture and traditions. I met great people and made friends who were ever willing […]
