Play with your dolls
sing and dance.
The world is small
the time is passable
the war will be over
and you will be over
and you will live for longer
in peace
in your own country.
You can go to school
you will have a good life
as any other...Read More

Gray clouds slide on by
The faint silhouette of a sun globe in the sky
Moving passed the light, as it comes to be
While I stand in the snow watching,
Peace comes over me

Oklahoma Skies
Oklahoma skies reserve a place for me,
when my last breath no longer is,
shoot my soul to the stars above,
a resting place where I can find peace and love.

a change from years of living in...Read More

Premium Member I Dreamt of Him
I go to nature to find my quietude,
the forest gives me peace -
in the stillness I rest my soul,
into the tranquility I intrude.

My heart is shattered and broken,
oh so lovely is the song of an Oriole;
I feel his melody,...Read More

Open or Closed
In one hand sits tranquility
while the others still a fist
You would think it would be easier
choosing that instead of this
With peace so ever calming
And the fist always a fight
Both remain the same
Be it dawn, or late at night
When peace is...Read More

Every Soul is enjoying this phase 
For weather is too good these days
After the freezing winters
That sucked last drop of blood from every Splinter

The snowstorm done, I venture out
   from here inside my rented space-
a cabin near the mountainside;
   I'm lured by beauty, all about.

How still the air- such quiet calm
   the dim-lit moon and stars provide.

Once upon a forgotten Kingdom
Once upon a time in Erin land,
the sun smiled on the people 
the rains communed peacefully with thunderstorms
Erin flowed with palm wine and palm oil, 
And her children drank to their fill  
Oba Adeniran, was a great king,

Premium Member O WHAT DO YOU DO
There once was a man who would never be calmed
Dismayed by the future ahead
Then somebody saw that the man was embalmed
Delayed by the fact he was dead.

Oh what do you do when the future's involved
Do you hide in your bathroom...Read More

Sounds of war
There is rumbling in the skies
It’s not thunder
Babies sound a chorus of cries
Where is mother?

They have mastered the drill
To take cover
Prayer the only sanctuary, they stay still
Survive or wander

There is no heat to keep them warm
There is just rapid fire
They...Read More

Keeping magic wands of happiness in hands
Why are we pleading for happiness outside?
We are the masters of our own happiness
And if mastered, will master the world in ease.

Bereft of courage there lived a poor soldier
Like a dear tiger living in...Read More

Tiny droplets of water that make all ocean,

My Valentine
If I could go back in time,
I wouldn't change a thing.
When I look at you I see,
What then made my heart sing.

Your beauty and innocence is all I ever see.
Beside you forever and always is where I'll ever be.

A Prayer for Healing
Dear Lord, in these days of trying times,
I come to you humbled and fearful.
I'm in knowledge of friends, family
And the unknown battling heartache,
Depression, illness and death.
I've come with peace in my heart,
Love in my soul and belief in my mind,

Ink had dried for some time and his worn mind scratched for words

A lullaby or even a tristich would do if an epic eluded his triste drought

In the Valley
In the valley where
Life is lived as intended
Happiness is widespread
As far as any eye can see.
Joy and love reign
As peace and blessings
Fall from above.
Minor disagreements though
Few and far between,
Met with acceptance and
Understanding are 
Respectfully resolved with
Knowledge and equality
For the good...Read More

Shadow Rock
Where the waves break
And sea foam rises
The crisp sound of the ocean
Echoes in the cavernous openings
Of private oceanside caves.
Waters rise and recede
As time passes through.
Sunlit moments slightly shaded
By rock shadows floating by.
Caressed by tropical breezes,
Spritzed in salt waters,
My soul is...Read More

His Masterpiece
I was born
A diamond in the rough
I am poetry in motion
Riddled with imperfections but
Flawlessly and wonderfully made
In the eyes of our Master,
A piece made in His likeness.
How I came to be
Dates back to the beginning
Of an eternity.
I have coarse hair

Close By Where My Child Would Die
Close By Where My Child Would Die

Were close by where my child had died,
While I always did feel so dreary inside;
Remember day;
Sad and gray,
And to stop my crying I tried and tried.

Death happened very quick and instant;
God told me what...Read More
