Premium Member nested in the umbrage

laden in the semblance of the lifeless
i curled my mind, nesting in the umbrage
of memories that haunt more than touch
unable to soar within the wind's of time

she begged me to fly, wrap my wings around faith
offer her comfort, make promises...Read More

My life devoid of exotic adventure

nor took to the skies, bore)

When lonely is the path,sorrow  is amiss
When nothing appeals
No company liked nor sought
Dreads ones own company
Takes recluse in some deserted place
Only to disdain one self
No flowers  no birds hold interest
Drowned in self-pity one moves
All joy has come to...Read More

It was time to let the bygones to be bygone,
And this they meant from the cockles of their hearts.
They felt that the injuries they had to endure were done,
It was too much to think over again about the hurts.

They avoided...Read More

Premium Member The Poignancy of Boyhood
There is a poignancy in boyhood...
The high voice, and ineptitude,
The yearning to be free of mother's strings;
The awkwardness of age fifteen, to wit
A boyish sullenness.

There are some things lost when manhood gained -
And mothers cry on thinking.

Premium Member Ruminations on the Karmic Consequences of a Harvest of Sins
Weary, sluggish and silent with apathy and 
disinterest, I sullenly reflect and 

My thoughts—thick and heavy like 
molasses—painfully churn and swirl in 
and out of my head and spill against the 
background of dead silence of my living 

They are...Read More

Rhythms from the belfry waft
A call of our votive worship to give.
In your sacred tent we besiege you.
For, to you our exultation to dole and your
Mercy on us to cascade.
The tune of the harmonica, our souls with your
Aura harmonized...Read More

On that vale of thorn
Abreast we ambled.
Un-frazzled, to the hawthorn
We held.
Though a twinge we felt the 
Haw we sought, and heyday we
Dreamed of.
Out of vague future luminous dreams
We hewed.
Though nadir soared, and hope in the
Depth of sea of dark...Read More

The two rulers were King Ahab and Queen Jezebel
from the city Jezreel, in the land of Israel.
A vineyard owned by another man in the city
became a very coveted piece of property.
This is a plot of ground stationed in propinquity
to the...Read More

silhouette visage 
scare awake the silent dead
on Allhallows eve

weird sounds penetrate
wildly woods so dark and deep
making one cower

a cold eerie chill
overtakes a breathless evening
waking dead spirits

fears manifest great
sullenness apprehensions
scaring one to death

little children lurk 
the streets full of kindly houses
with...Read More

Clad in his double-breasted royal toga
Filled of nothing but pride and anger
His face as grim as a Pallbearer’s
His gaze dreadful and fearful like that of 
A raging rattlesnake about to strike
His eyes crackling charcoal fire-red
His dancing tummy under his “Agbada”
Reminds...Read More

Premium Member New Vision
Love laps at the shore of my heart. 
Kinetically connected to kindness 
my soul basks sumptuously in the 
sunshine of creation. 

All thoughts of bitterness dissolved 
and washed away down the drainpipe 
of despondency, mingling with misery 
and disappearing from...Read More
