Baboon’s wishful thinking

Innovators develop creature’s comfort
Yet no mortal can physically go out of itself
Like bare bodies stripping off its clothes
In deed, ghosted eyes would never have closed.

I wish the Creator was kind on my kind
So we can jump off into any flesh we find
We are monkeys, and not spirits being
Don’t blame us for dying over such a thing.

The Creator’s support carries weight
But I guess He had ran through all the stakes
Knowing that I am so beautiful
Just the way I am…. not beautiful.

Beneath the stars and clouds

It was a quiet night
Under the Starlights

I sat and admired
The way the sky shone

From a distant mile…
Came a friendly breeze

With croaks from the frogs
Creepy yet, it was fun

While the whistling Palms
Joined the windy chorus.

Shadows grew so tall,
Fireflies everywhere

But up above where
The clouds stood and float

I unravelled puzzles
From the East to West.

For each mass of cloud
Had a picture they spoke

It was beautiful
Getting lost in wonders

But soon came the dawn
And I wondered what

The heaven looks like
If the skies could be that

Breathtakingly calm
Awesome and beautiful.

Lenses of Nature

When three ropes
Are tied together
It becomes stronger

The sky, air and soil
Are filled with glows
And treasures of all kinds

The beauty of nature
Is in everything
It connects together..

How wonderful is it
Seeing clouds gather
And let go of its weight,

Raining splendidly
Over tall hills and
On the green grasses

Giving life essence
And sprouting roots
Reasons to grow

How wonderful is it
That a Free falling water
Comes from a mere rock,

Valleys are between
Mountains standing tall
Reaching for the blue

While providing haven
For the eagles to stay
And regain lost strength

How wonderful is it
Seeing trees stretch
And reach for the blue,

While the rivers
At the bottom
Flows with great aplomb

Dispersing life and
Acting as mirrors,
Reflecting Gods wonders.

Bloods of earth

Vital liquid flows on earth
Conveying various nutrients
Held, yet formless and colorless,
Conveyed by different bodies.

Bless God for perfect designs
Creating mass, liquid droplets
Lost in wonders, how, where and what
Pumps and even generates it
Worries must be hydrophobic.

Bottom; treasures discovered
Reflects another wonder
Light and oxygen flows underneath
Just so aquatic lives should breath.

What a delight when submerge;
Peace and quiet will emerge
Swimming in the bodies of earth
While everything feels so alright;
Worries must be, hydrophobic.

Waterfalls

Take me down to the fall,
so I can loose it all
And feel weightlessness
from deep down my chest…

Freely falling by its
wonderful sight and sounds
Peace of mind is assured,
laying down by the shores

The bliss of a waterfall,
got no rival at all
Do not find wedge,
water can not be caged.

Riding for Nature

Wrinkles seek no consent
Before it penetrates

Staying young is a race
No one can win the chase

I asked, where lies my fate
When I go grey and late

All beauties have a phase
But none can keep a pace

So now I ride my horse
Not to put coin in purse

But to give thanks to God
For this beautiful world.

Salvaging waterfalls

I have come to learn a whole lot
bubbling inside my favorite pot.
First, the steep descents of rivers
are breathtaking; yet, a disaster…
Same stream we dive into and swim
can swallow us even while we scream.

All of tides are connected to the moon
Gravity dines, with a bigger spoon.
Like everyone the water is scared too
Curiosity, some times takes us through
While other times, it worsen things
Freedom to a river is a pipe dream.

Floating so fine like shuck oysters
Flowing against tides birth disasters
So whenever the river takes you down
Please hate it not even as you frown
All it is doing is guide and salvage
its speculative battle with waves.

Floras, Skies and Seas

Fountain of peace,
Forest of cheese
Focus on blue.
Naked are seeds
Nacreous are clouds
Nature never
Perishes in places
Precisely where,
Plain blues and greens
Stay clean and true
Self flourishing-
-Sprouting so free.

Native fly: Sonnet of sweetened Africa

Around the globe, there is
No place, that sweets my soul

Like my home, Africa
If you doubt, come find out…

Free like birds, up the trees
Monkey swings, swift and free

Black and white, Zebras tease
Blue is to, skies and seas,

Healthy fruits, freshest breeze
Calm and warmth, more of peace

Honeybees; never lie,
Sweet fragrance, scenting nice

If I die, bury me
In my home, Africa.

Sonnets: Woods of trees

Come to the forest
To see for yourself
The beauty in greens
And the main reason
Mustard seeds decay;
Well, breathe comes from death
Germinating through
The touch of seasons;
Spore sprout by the sun
One layer in rows
Rings begin to grow,
Giving it the strength
And rigid backbones
To grow to any length.
