My Poem in Her Boat

When I came to the soup,
I did not know how to tame,
the straying syllables on my Haiku.
Then, she took me under her wings,
and I have learnt so much since then.
I have learnt the trick of weaving words,
on the spindle to form poetry.
Though, I am not a good student,
for I skip classes now and then,
but she pursues me here and there.
Surely, one day I shall grow like her,
writing poetry without getting weary.
Haa, have you heard the latest,
she has just elevated me,
by making me one of the poets,
whose poetry 'float into her boat'.

20th April, 2013

Dedicated to Andrea Dietrich, for her encouragement and all that I have learnt from her.

    Modupe, this is just DARLING. The expression is "float my boat" but the way you have used it is so charming!! This for sure is a fave of mine. it's just so sweet and touching. Thanks so much for this!
