The Winds Asunder

Dark clouds slowly grow and gather, The fast wind starts her grim asunder, Along her path, she flung away things; rooftops and paper So that unhappy owners may come looking for them later

What I think of Poverty (Poetry)

What if I told you a poem of poverty Will you wave it off and call me silly? I will tell you what I think Why communities continue to sink, School children trek miles to get a bus Their worn-out shoes make it worse, Bright girls will deliberately miss school Sanitary pads their excuse, without […]

Fantasy: Dream with me

Let’s lie on green fields Close your weary eyes Dream with me of a pretty land I want a tree by my side And a bunny out there too, Sunshine, cute clouds and blue skies Let the sun wear her garment And her warmth mild upon us Let tree leaves shade her light So I’m […]

To my First Grays

You make me look old Like the folktales I told I wish away old age But they say gray is sage I feel happy warmth, When I muse over it

February Harmattan

Harbinger of Sahara, king of the queer dust I hail you! Your entourage of heavy sand storms and dunes Display there works of art on our glass windows and faces You give us very strange attires, ghostly ones We wonder, we make guesses of why you love the dust, Why you paint all; flowers, careless […]

Palm Trees

Like a tropical masquerade she stood With hands as long and spiky fronds And breasts as red fruits, ripe and Fresh snacks for all who come to her feast Long are her strong and tiny roots For she stands as firm sentry and greets All that journey through the quiet hamlet She hides behind hills […]

Candlelight

Dear candlelight Dance for me, throw your light Upon the darkness in this box Make these great shadows a hoax Fire your joyful flames up So you may read words my pen drop Gather your heat and strength Waltz with the wind, feel the warmth Dance again when you lick the air Mock me when […]

Muse: Evening Rain

Listen… Hear the clouds rumble, for it rains again Soft breezes from the quiet evening Come drumming, mildly on the pan, The rooftop has got a companion Up this ancient forested hills The trees dance and twist To songs from the Winds tongues From the pond, the back-up frog choir get set, Waiting for their […]

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 […]

Call me Summer 

Call me summer; my days are sunny and hot,  And in the forage you shall find, sweet fruits riped.  I give tastes of fresh salmon cooked in coconut oil And a drink of wine to toast to the mild island heat  * Call me summer for I plait the hairs of the palm trees I […]

Musing: Lazy Day

Tossed about, is my big head Weary from nothing, lazy mind I took flight in the light wind Wetting my eyes in the clouds And the quietness was so loud I slept, not sleep, reverie Forgetting that I must eat I woke, trying to be free  But even then I felt crazy Nothing wants me […]

The moon and night plays

Yells, cries of children disturb the nights silence In the moonlight they dance, they play in the distance Casting shadows upon the lonely tree’d pathway Tumbling on sands, caring not for neither man nor scorpion They make figures, people and tall castles of clay Happily they yell, desiring nothing under the queer moon Meanwhile the […]

Imaginations

Imaginations… …Soars the skies With the fine Eagles …Paints the winds Red and sky blue …Watches the rising sun As she wakes fron the East …Tastes the grapes Along the green orchard …Dream a dream And believes in that dream …Rides the Wildebeest Across the Savannah …Fly kites Which turn out to be air planes […]

Home coming: freestyle

The strange rains fall Leaves fall in circles With a back on the wall I watch the Wrestlers debacle Now the quietness falls on me Solemn, it seems today Chatting, what a boring day it be For my home beckons far away

Midnight Thought

Once upon a midnight dreary As I pondered weak and weary The night was grim and all was damp Swarms of flyfull insect surround my lamp And out there the trees stood like Halloween ghosts Waiting to take a stab, standing lightly on the dusts The clouds shine, Zeus was trying out his new lamp […]
