Dazzling Daisy: A Poem By Kofi Eghan

April 21, 2017

Dazzling daisy, One who is pretty and never naughty. Your smooth words and flattering speeches, Causes my heart to melt like a snow on a mountain on a sunny day. Dazzling daisy. If you travel so far beyond the reach of roads, And I find no ship to sail the seas. Then I will swim […]

February 19, 2017

Two Poems: By Eroayetan Justice

December 23, 2016

INNOCENT AFRICA: We were seated in ranch like sheep, Grazing our pots like bees on the hills From our fingers down to the elbow, Our mother’s stew runs, and still we eat it with ego Our farm was our play field, And under the night moon comes our News feed That old wooden pallet carries […]

Two Poems: By Simbiat Somorin Sima

September 10, 2016

  METAMORPHOSIS This life comes in phases, A cycle that comes around. The transformation isn’t swift But if you blink you will miss it. Like an insect, it starts with an embryo. The hands and knees are at work at this stage Moving around and crawling like a millipede. An unstoppable laughter And wail of no […]

Birds

September 7, 2016

I will reincarnate as a bird So I can migrate, Know no boundaries, Soar. I always hated stagnancy. I knew if I crawl and ran long enough, I will fly.
