Best Sajdah Al-Riyami Poems

+ Fav Poet


I sit On a coach made of leather
While she sits on a dust of mud and feathers

I walk under the cool breeze of the sun
While she hangs an empty bucket on her head for a run

I dust the crumbs of leftovers
While she feeds the peace of her slumber

I travelled on wings over the blue
While her living in time is but a flu


     Take my hand Africa
   Take Your skeletons With you
  And embrace hunger

Even in death

    Hi! Thank you for you comment on my poem. o. The verses in my poetry are are inspired by the experinces, either good or bad, I have gotten from life. It amazes me ,sometimes, how I can pen down such thoughts! It must be the source of spirituality and wisdom within my soul. I love your poem, "Skeletons," it reminds me of the stark reality of Africa. May god bless you always. I wish you success in your poetry endeavors. Warm Regards, Andrew.
