A Lemon Yellow Hat

The morning light of a new day, 
cascades through the bedroom window. 
I am alone. 
Your pillow is soft, and close by, 
it still smells of you...
I can close my eyes, 
and pray to see your...Read More

I repent

Knew well mistakes made; How can I forget?
At this age now mind likes to travel back;
Know my drawbacks, past thoughts makes me upset.

You felt, 'twas not right on my part, but yet
asked for your love, tell me what did I...Read More

Sense of Time
Evolution gave humans a present
which seems (on first glance) to be pleasant.
We envision the past
and the future — so vast.
But this gift keeps our minds off the present....Read More

Weep not Nigeria
Weep not Nigeria,
for justice is in the offing.
Weep not Nigeria,
for your cries resonate and ring.
Weep not Nigeria,
It's time for your African spring.
Weep not Nigeria,
none shall usurp your role as king.
Weep not Nigeria,
for soon in ecstasy you'll sing.
Weep not Nigeria,

After a long time
I can't find words to rhyme,
My thoughts are rusty
My pen covered in grime.
The flow is frosty,
Warmth been a long time
Silence at estuary
Vaporizing what does remain
Needling through the ocean
I endeavour to stitch
A tapestry of emotions
Beautiful and rich.
Mused lines, camouflaging
To string in...Read More

Premium Member Maybe it is time

Falling out of favor
seems it happens over time
Loosely found intentions
linger forced within a rhyme
Empty little boxes
wait below your every word
Silence comes a calling
not a sound this day is heard
Lines that are delivered
to an audience that’s gone
Nothing found for efforts

i seemed to
have lost track
of time and also
as to where i'm at

tummy is

rumbling for i 
should have
been at the

You just happen to be the one,

And i want truly.

My Hope
I hope you know 
What we meant to me 
More than any seed I could ever sow

I hope you understand
The impact you had on me
A little undeserved, better than I planned

I hope in time your stars align
And they come closer...Read More

From Death to Life
A leaf on a big tree was happily hanging 
Favorably for every passer-by just to see
He was appreciatively coloured green
Like a bean, he was very much attractive

A treacherous wind rose up to shake’im fall
Forcibly, on the ground he landed green

The Potter
No time to write a sonnet 
Tip of my tongue not rehearsed

How can i forget
Sins forgiven once for all
Atonement you had met
You hung dry and...Read More

There was pity for one second for the victim in this case,
when 'Hilly', 'Bee' and me were walking to our drinking place.

The Curse of a Motor Mower
They’re motives of the weekend - they’re a gardener’s saving grace,
buzzing up and down and ‘round and ‘round cleaning up the place.

once you ease a hiccup which can cause...Read More

While towers scraping as high as they can reach
Just crave to punch their...Read More

Arms pinned down, slowly choked out, 
never enough time, or words;
You sliced me, now finish it; 
Feeling up my thoughts, I’m high;  
Your hands covering my mind 
screaming in your frequency; 
Cut off the circulation. 

You have stolen my...Read More

Working on the pipeline

All work and no play
Never know the time of day.

Never finding time to sleep
Work in mud up to our necks
Have no time to cash our checks.
