Sunset: Ride of Nature

1 I see you ride with the clouds, hiding your face from mine Blushing before the endless firmaments, resting from the day You have carved a wall of silver triangle upon heaven And upon the midst of the oceans of floating clouds  2 To the ends of the dying day you created a memory,  Streaks […]

Musing: Setting sun

1. The setting sun reminds me of many things Some nice, some exciting, some make me laugh And others leave me sobbing at the thought But making me to laugh or leaving me to sob I find times defined in those memories, not me   2. Twilight comes with even finer airs, playing On fantasies that […]

Musing: Sun Rising in Africa

When the sun rises upon the quiet hamlet There is joy, there are smiles and laughter The curtains are thrown open for light The golden rays of the sun swing in Hopes are high, answers to prayers come The children roll out their bicycles As their dogs follow them, fast The little ones stay behind, […]

Five Poems

The wind grows soft and dry It passes messages fast forgotten For in its speed, it is lost The pines whistle, men stay to listen When the fruits fall off the trees It thunders upon the quiet ground And little stray ants wonder If the world had come to an end If Grapes ever had […]

Muse: Out in the Sunshine

Once out in the sunshine We happen to see wonderful things Things strange and old Things new and rare We feel the warmth The scorch of the Sun And the Heavens shower On our light and fair skin Dawn approaches and I will miss you Your warmth, the heat and your embrace Though the high […]

The Summers Tale

When summers come around The flowers bloom, red, pink The clouds are proud with mild sun Joy gives hope, the bridges a link The green fields grow We see the farmers sow The summer leaves, taking the hue Blowing all a hearty kiss As her cold monstrous nephew Comes taking the once a bliss The […]

The Old Man and The Bulb

I met an old man Walking down the lane Passing thru the barn With a face, bold and stern He dropped his stick And I watched him stoop His body rattled, weak And down the steps, I took a hop “Hello sire, lemme help you” He looked up, a bright smile “Oh, goodness, my son, […]

Courage

for Uwakmfon Ebong 1.6.2015 The breadth of the Earth lay wet But the Sun rises from the East From vague sights and the mist The dark jungles, cool and serene But the Lions stride through the green Fearing neither man or faun A shriek of strength is heard up the skies The Eagle soars high […]

A Tale of the Lakeside

Once upon a quiet lakeside Where blue skies stay And very thick fog dwells With tall Figs hiding in them Hanging like towers There’s a riot of colors Down the valley When the sun rays fall On the forest below All turns to gold The clouds are not left behind They shine gloriously The water […]

Dew

Early in the morning The sun stays home Taking care of her kids Letting the Heavenly dew rest There’s moist on vegetations; There’s moist on trees There’s moist on shrubs On grasses and the pans There’s moist on my hands As I give each flower a shake The skies are dark Painted with different shades […]

Musing: All Things Beautiful

Queues of tiny cute rabbits Unperturbed and playing in the corn fields Eagles watching patiently over them Neon-lit streetlights in the dark Scents of the Rose and the Marigold Calls of the Patridges across the forested waterfalls Emeralds dressed in flower-smiles Yesterday was fast snoring, again Cakes of snow; Hopes beautiful painted in artful sceneries […]

So Long A Dreamers Joy

The sun gave its last smile Then went to sleep for the day Cool wooing sea breezes wash thru Sending an emissary notice To the gleefully shining stars On a night many wondered about The moon happy as he seemed Searched the beautiful glades in haste Looking for ones love –his love Once, more crickets […]
