It Takes Two…!

 

Two are better than one

‘Cos two makes loneliness a stranger

Two can halve the troubles

‘Cos two makes the burden easier

two can walk better together

and neither can stand alone

for every pleasure doubles

and everywhere is home

Two can walk on together

through strife and pain

through laughter and bliss

our light will shine through the darkness  

our laughter will resonate every morning

Two can weather all weathers

through every day and every night.

Peace and Love!

I Arise…!

 

From the darkness of the night

I awoke

To the light of a promising day

Armed with selfless thoughts

With empowering cravings

To rise above yesterday’s failures

The ashes of past glories

The lies of illusions and hallucinations

Today is the new truth

I arise

To carve a new reality

And drift away from the oblivious lies of past confessions

That ended in disasters

Today, I awoke and I arise

To take a leap into life

To crush the confessions I make in silence

To deflate the egos of limiting beliefs

From the darkness of the previous night

I awoke

To spring forth and blossom

The Seed Of Love

 

Love, the star that lights up in darkness

Love, the language spoken without words uttered

Love, the compass that leads us so we don’t get “lust”

Love, the song we sing and watch our heart dance to

Love, the antidote to the poison that triggers hate

Love, the one word that can’t be defined when truly felt

Love, the music of the heart

To All Poetry Enthusiasts!

 

I don’t joke with people who have a taste for poetry. To all the poetry enthusiasts, I’d say, keep writing ‘cos the world will keep reading too.

I admire the fact that passionate feelings can be expressed through imaginative words in a creative aesthetic style and rhythm.

Unfortunately, Poetry is not accorded the recognition it deserves, especially in African literature. It’s not a genre of literature that is hugely appreciated no doubt, and this can be attributed to its distinctive language. However, with more poets (Africans) rising up, this conception might change in the near future.

So, today, let me honour the Masters of this distinctive art the world over, Poets, who craft words, mould them, weave them together, adding rhythmic beauty to these letters to create a superb gripping effect. 🙂

To all the poets who add special intensity and beauty to letters as they invoke emotions into their poetry –  SALUTE.

Kudos to you all.

It’s Your DAY.

The world celebrates you today! 🙂

In addition, we may not all write poetry in letters. But some of you do, with your gorgeous outlook, and with the extension of your hands of generosity, towards humanity.  🙂

Here’s a big shout out to all the great poets, dead and alive.  You all are the great minds that add beauty and colour to our world.

Cheers. 🙏😍

Happy World Poetry Day! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Peace and Love!

My Dreams!

 

I dream to wake up in the morning

With the sun peeping through the clouds

Injecting new life into my winter stunned world

I dream to soak myself in the sun for hours

With no stormy thoughts

But to visualise and feed my imaginations

**********************

 

I dream of game times and celebrations

Fun time spent amidst family and friends

Sharing tidbits and laughter

Enjoying the delish spread as we mingle and giggle

I dream of parks and gardens adorned with fairy lights

With beautiful flowers nodding their heads in delight

***********************

 

I dream of driving down to that scenic paradise

White sandy beaches with sparkling frothy waves

And beautiful lakes with plush green meadows

Listening to the blackbirds, the Wrens and Chaffinches

Carolling in their orchestrated chorus

As I nestle my head surrounded by cherry blossoms

Dazzled by their well-manicured bliss-pink petals.

*************************

 

I dream of a perfect world

Devoid of catastrophes and scary crippling terror

A world devoid of man’s cruelty and failings

A world purged of indigents and deprived souls

Oh! A world filled with human milk of love and care

I dream of strength and a hope that never dims

Wrapped in immeasurable bliss and joy

**********************

 

 

 

Peace and Love!
