A Word is Born

The quil blots its ink and a word is born

Hot Ether

whose gorgeous aura burns lambent like ether set on fire

Girl in Mini-Skirt

because a nubile girl in mini-skirt just walked by;

Spirit Soaring

and the Spirit soars in seminal poetics;

Poet's Muse

as the Poet's mighty muse parts the skies;

Universe Rattled

then the Universe is rattled avant-garde;

Whispering Hands

as two anonymous hands whispered to a heart;

MY POETRY HOME — trespassers welcome

savannah princess For A Princess
(of the savannah)
Written at @Room 18 IACC, ABU Zaria — Nigeria.
(Monday, October 22nd, 2012)
if the brightest shining star I am
in your world then the purest,
whitest light you are in my life

dainty and agile like a gazelle of the savannah
Princess without pride, regal without airs
so charming a soul that cannot be damned
so precious a Jewel that cannot be priced

beforenow, herenow and afternow
we live effused with our deathless memories

my ever-increasing dreams enwrapped within
your super-enchanting rays

our pulses unruffled, our bonds radiant
our glory amplifying, our union liberating
our journey blessed, our path a trail for humanity

we live and we die and we are reborn
we shine on for eons of eternity with neither
a beginning nor a pause nor an end

yes, this I know to be truly so,
even though we met only in brief...
