Love Letter From The Soul LII
. . . 

after the ellipsis
we confer 

entrenched in the awakened
a story rises from the burn
limbs parted and wrapped about
delved deep within the yearn

it is the beginning 
with no end
collaborating on the middle
where jute has left her mark

past the tense...Read More

great advice, for a fruitfly!
But for women and men,
simple Simons, say, “WHEN!”

An ambitious druid set out to recover an omnipotent ancient fluid

She was a kind witch with a wee twitch about to discover a glitch

Laboured with great force to go back to the Source and in due course

She tabled a motion...Read More

To write an epigram, cram.
If you lack wit, scram!

Conformists of a feather
flock together.

If every witty thing that’s said was true,
Oscar Wilde, the world would worship You!

Love has the value
of gold, if it’s true;
if not, of rue.

Fierce ancient...Read More

Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
Give me that old time religion
It’s good enough for me

Songwriters: Ford/Fascinato

With age comes the inner, the higher life.
Who would be forever young,
to dwell always in externals?

Premium Member Stalked by August Trees
Every time I change directions
lately, and possibly beforely,
Trees stand by to mentor
and nurture,
to feed with branched hands
to bleed when uprooted
from aptic past centuries
of hibernating winter naps.

Trees of original pheromone attraction,
August spawned
like Taurus colonizing crabgrass
embedded in deep horticultural learning root systems

Re-Visiting Nigeria
(Holding fire and water together) 
I don't know why the rain keeps writing the 
name of Nigeria on the ground in every corner. 
I don't know why we are this broken and 
tortured like the fragments of the dust.

For The BoyChild: Solace And Solitude

A Word To Wives
To keep your marriage smiling
Never point your finger on the
Hungry face of your husbands,
Never dream like a woman in

and paint that clothed sorrows

To keep your love brimming,
Never accuse your husband
Of the missing meat in...Read More

Premium Member If Only I'd 'Bermembered'
"If I'd ‘bermembered' Quincy (1) then
I never would have come."
This four-year-old, (2) her hands on hips,
Made older kids feel dumb!

The thought, of raising voice to Dad,
Sent ice chills down my spine.
But when a child tells power truth,
It's years best Valentine!

These cascaded tears are black in complexion,
I started arranging them when I was fourteen.
These broken stars are the horizons of fear, 
I started numbering them when I was ten. 
These words were the scars seen

Echoes Of Hard Times
I felt it like the storm
I called it my trying times
During my dying time.
In rear times.

But the moon looked at me with pity
As the Sun wished it could dry my tears 
By shining so brightly.

My pain wrapped itself around me

Is there really a beautiful heaven?
Is there a red and black hell for sinners? 
Basking on this,  I told myself that the beautiful heaven is this we see now, argue with the sky and cloud on this.

I have hope in Africa

This is Lagos
This is Lagos-

I'm permanently casual, a full on part time,
A jack of just about every small trade.
