Waterfall

Listen to Nature sing from waterfalls, She thrash her garments upon rocks And wash them with her soft palms She sends soft waters crashing into the pool Watching the blue skies as her fingers work When the water descend they form Fine curtains of white mist As the water touch the pool below It changes […]

My Soul Longs for Thee

My soul longs for thee, dear motherland To run the patched dusty red muds And to swim in the rivers crisscrossing all over you Let me climb the trees of your forests And drink from the shallow streams My soul longs to nibble the tender pumpkin seeds Freshly cut from hilly farms To dance with […]

When there was love, I saw the clouds Clear like the sweet spring water Leaping, joyfully from rocks, Falling, washing pebbles white, And rushing to feed unknown lands

I Felt Roses by Okoroji Chidiebere Alexander

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, […]

Atmosphere of Love

Love can not be felt When there is strife, When the moods tell foul Love can not be felt When the sails are low Or the winds are hot Love can not be felt When egos are high When words are faint Love is a great virtue That requires selflessness Courage and understanding

A Psalm: Your Voice

When I spoke with You I felt the rhythm in Your voice It gave me the push to wake the solo song singing in me, It made the ink in me flow Guiding as I let my words sow Your voice caged the fear in me Showered on me pieces of life sweets It drove […]

Nene: African woman

1. The braids on your hair Is typical of the African woman Black and totally natural. Nicely fit Pulling back your cheek bones Into the hair… Like a young gazelles face. Your nose is like the fine basket When you breath, it is a wonder And it seems you walk on flowers 2. When you […]

Once I met a painter A fine and petit young man At the corner of the street he lived Working away, minding his business And living so solitary, that I wondered “Hallo sir! What do you really paint?” I must have sounded sheepish For who won’t call a pen, a writer When you know the […]

Musing: Loneliness
