Lean Robust Birds

Bright Sharon of roses on its bed
Still envies the shades that fade
Wondering why rains fall to the floor
Yet the blue sky is the goal for all.

One day; several feathers swung
Then I heard a beautiful song…
Coming from birds that crave for peace
As the leaves trembled by a bliss

While walking across paths of earth
Seeing abundant riches and wealth
Their wishes are all, including dustbins
Harvesting far more than nectars on trees

But while I dazed far from reach
The richest being on earth made a screech
“I wish I was a flying bird” he said
“I’ll sky roam and never hit the ground.”

Tone: Dearth days

Every day I wake up at mid night
Not by nightmares nor any fright
It is late for my phone to call
Hence I think of you, wishing for more
More of the passion and down pour
Dredging these dearth days for sure
Picking images from sweet memories
Reassembling all our love stories
While I replay your soothing voice
Reminding me; that you are my choice.

Soul Searching

Have you ever made sweet chats
From the depth of your hearts
Where “I love you” often rocks
Amongst others, unlocking lucks

Opening doors of self discovery
Manipulating emotion with envy
Demanding who loves more than the other
While stealing kisses from one another…

Right above such a harbour
The moonlight chose to bore
A reflection, converting to love
Sugars only soulmates can dissolve…

Such state of mind isn’t just romance
But also, spiritually enhanced
For beyond the dust called flesh
Acceptance lurk souls that search.

Running from tantrums

Can you loan me
A rest of mind
Place were tantrums
Are dumb and blind
So at night I could
Smile and rest my head
Sleeping calm and fine
Metabolizing all I dine.

African Tamarind

When I look into what everyone sees
I see a city, they call an ever green
A city that was built by Robin Hood
Stealing and giving to a yellow wood

Hiding the existence of an African plum
Telling me my soil breeds only worms
Cursing Nature by playing the master
Who cracked shells for seeds to foster

Sprouting out seeds called my brothers
Related by blood but not by sisters
Rome wasn’t built in a day, please save
The story hey you diaspora modern slaves

Until you deep your feet in your own shoe
You will not realize who is really fooled
Even Apples fall not far from its trees
As a citizen, you are liberal but far from free…

The second largest continent yet an ant
In the sight of others who aren’t stagnant
Even Angels can’t keep loving a child
Who sour the sweetness deep inside…

Each time I see a tamarind plum
I always critic the African poems
Not as a racist but deep in here
I speak in pains, hoping we hear clear.

Tone: Out of a million hugs

All of my life, I have had a million hugs
But none has been felt like this one she brings
Where our bodies touch to pull the snow
And our eye meet connecting the soul
Smiling carelessly with nothing to hide
Inside such a hug, is true love to find.

Sneaking from behind grabbing the waist
Taking flight on fright with love so bright
In such a way that we feel the warm hands
Climbing and sliding, around the neck untold
As I immediately get her swept off her feet
Following it up with a lovely French kiss

Transmitting all softly, as we crush all space
Between our body while we slow dance
Robbing our backs; when the tides are high
Providing shoulder should tears gush out
Often she tucks her hands into my pocket
Whispering, “Shakespeare can’t describe that”.

Tone: Drone of anticipation

Red shades on the gown she wore
Ushered affection through the door
That we sat nearby like five and six
Driving round town in such a bliss

The rain noticed temperature rose
That it fell slowly to water the Rose
The day was fast in all we did
Alighting with bye, faces we hid…

As we strolled into different homes
“Grin grin…” telephones rang loud
Making love calls that blew the mind
Gifting our hearts all it seek to find

Over phone we talked of tomorrow
Hence I had to wait for it to roll
Before I can grab the bull by its horn
So I slept deep as the moon waxed on

Sweet I dreamt about honey and beehive
Only to wake up at eleven forty five
Thinking the cock had crowed for dawn
But my heart was on anticipation drone.

Tone: 1887

She felt an excruciating pain
With a sweetness unexplained
Back pushed by his shoulder
But her soul slowly surrendered.

Screaming within a kiss of hush
Whispering the stop, no and yes
Blabbing while trying to push, yet
Bearing it all including the force.

So she gathered first experience
Wading back home, tensed in chest
Bleeding in drops, she endured
Because love in 1887 was a treasure.

Lust in hearts

Playing sweet song
While she dances along…
My mind she blew
By the apples she threw

Now I am lust
In her heart to default
Playing sweet songs
While she dances along.

Captured

Dusting old shelves
And all there is left
I found her here
And I held her dear.
