Love Is You And Me

6E2DEF6A-1008-4575-92F7-776F62EF8B23

Spin a perfect love story
Spice it with thrills and frills
Add some touching embellishments
Remember to make room
For the realities of life

Make perfect your love plans
In the curves and turns
Of Love’s treasured lines
Remember to connect
With the real human in you

Love exists not in a vacuum
Love lives not in the air
Love glides not in realms of nothingness
Love is you and me
May I be the love I want see in others

Unpaint the Strokes



Unpaint the strokes
Reverse the chime
Unlock the Night
As the Day returns
Broken peace
Broken in pieces
Dear Mother Nature
Recall your sons
A Time machine I seek-
When our red roses bloomed,
I was a girl, with pink parasols,
You were a boy, with mammoth dreams
When we were young, free and sweet
And in love

My Mother’s Gele

D273A861-F6A3-4632-BE49-F2655567A777

My African scarf,
My mother’s “gele,”

Made in various hues,
Red, orange or blue,

Firmly wrapped,
Round and round
Until firm and still,

It’s not a beret,
It’s not for a ballet,

A special scarf it is,
Patterned, indigenous indeed,
Intentionally large and colourful,
Bold, trendy and beautiful,

My culture
My heritage
My Africa

orange

It’s Autumn …

178B9694-17F1-4DFC-B963-FAF7C46879BE

This is Mancheste, UK on one beautiful Autumn afternoon.

Summer has released its hold,
Autumn has the upper hand,
Trees lined up in perfect queue
Like blushing bridesmaids on an aisle,
Autumn leaves everywhere,
In beautiful radiant shades of gold;
At the end of the aisle
A lonely pine tree watches on,
In silent anticipation,
(Apparently, the odd one out!)
“Soon, it will be winter,
My beautiful lights will glow,
And I, will be the center of attention”
It mused with a calm confidence.

There abides three things- hope, faith, love; and the greatest of them is love

Two is better than one they say
I never knew how true
Till I met you

Love is sweet to have they say
I never knew how sweet
Till I loved you

Life is wonderful when you have
someone to share it with
I never knew how true
Till I said,
“I will share my life with you”

Poet’s Notes:
I was going through my email this morning, deleting my old mails to have more storage space on my device. I came across this poem I wrote for my husband, then fiancé, on the 18/11/2006. I was truly amazed at my words and I was greatly encouraged. This resonates with my post yesterday- The Pen. I’ve completed forgotten that I wrote a beauty like this.

I know in many years to come, I will look back at my blog and my heart would be filled with great gladness when I read my words, my books and many more things I may have penned down.
Shalom

Tender Drizzles

Soft tender whispers
Your words
They seep into my heart
I listen
Beautiful, delicious
Like the honeycomb
Sets me at ease
A cosy hug, we share
None willing to untangle
Silence
Sweet silence
An eternal cuddle
It seems
Your cheek
Brushes against mine
Caressing faces
Touching noses
Soft strokes
Your hands
Through my hair
A delicate peck
Your lips
On my forehead
I bask in this aura, of love
Feelings, like butterflies
Dancing, fluttering
Inside while we sit
In silence
No words
No actions
Just us and
The ticking clock
Such precious moments
Time, rolling by
Endlessly, it seems
Golden radiance
Heaven’s rays of love
Beaming through
On a summer morning
The day beckons
Slowly, reluctantly
Unwilling, to begin the day
Yet, we rise
But, with joy, a smile
And a mutual, eternal love
For each other
Though apart on sight
Entwined, inseparable
One heart, one soul
We are

Daily Prompt: Tender

Poet’s Notes:
A love poem I wrote in honour of my 10 years marriage anniversary with my husband this June.

Where True Love exists

What I love I will fight for
What I have passion for,
I will walk a thousand steps,
I will run the farthest distance,
Till it becomes a reality
Till it translates
From dreams to developments

14 years was like 14 days to Jacob,
His love for Racheal was his driving force

When I see men, women, running marathons
From one country to another, sprinting hard
From one desert to another, trudging on
From one river to another, swimming strong
In good or bad weather, undaunted, unmoved
Running for noble causes, for charities,
My heart applauds and cheers them on
For tackling the hardest of many tasks
I look into their faces, into their hearts
I search and find nothing but love,
Love for a better tomorrow, for change
Love and passion for a better life for all
Distance is no barrier where true love exists

Daily Prompt: Distant

Hello Beautiful

Hello beautiful,
Looking at you
I find sweetness
Into your heart
I descend deeper
I find beauty
Knowing you
A treasure

Daily Prompt: Descend

See also Beautiful Soul

Author’s notes:
There is hidden beauty in everything and everyone we see. We just have to search it out if we want to find it. Also, if you see beauty and sweetness in your dreams and aspirations, you will descend to any level of hard work and dogged determination to work it out and fulfil it.
When you find beauty in whatever you do, work becomes play.

under the blanket…

under the blanket my tears flowed all through the night…

under the blanket I found strength to move on…

under the blanket I wished I didn’t love you…

under the blanket I knew I could still love again…

under the blanket, alone in my world, I decided…

i decided to give love a second chance…

Daily Prompt:  Blanket

Two Lovebirds

On a bed of tanned soft sandy shores
Under the starless opaque clouds
Sat two lovebirds in a honeymoon snug
Closely, silently, an affectionate hug
Watching the setting sun wave goodbye
While the restless murmuring sea
Hummed in a low non-rhythmic key
Immersed in the tranquil untroubled
No words uttered, none was needed

Daily Prompt: Opaque

Beautiful Soul

One glance at your face
One look into your eyes
They tell me your story
They narrate your tale
No hideouts, no veils
As clear as the day
I hear your cheery laughs
I hear your gentle voice
But one look into your eyes
I see something extraordinary
I see your beautiful soul

Daily Prompt: Hideout

Strangers #2

Not strangers, you say
Still passionate, you add
Believe me, you plead
How can I believe you?
I don’t recognize you anymore,
Your pitch, your tone, your voice-
So cold, distant and detached,
Like the voice of a stranger

Daily Prompt: Recognize

Hold Me Gently

Draw me deeper,
Hold me stronger,

I tend to slip,
When I think I’m standing.

Don’t be fierce,
Don’t be harsh,
Hold me gently;

I tend to break,
When I think I’m strong.

I’ll stand with you,
If you hold my hand.

Don’t be mad,
Don’t belittle,
Treat me gently;

My steps are sure,
If you take the lead.

My heart beats stronger,
When you come for me.

Daily Prompt: Fierce

The Music of His Love

The sound of his voice is music to my ears,
His tender whispers of love is music to my heart,
He looks at me with unfeigned devotion,
He smiles at me with great admiration,
With the touch of his hands, I know I’m secure;
With the touch of his lips, I know I’m loved;
Melodious symphonies playing on the stereo
Wrapped in his wonderful strong arms, I am
In tune in body, heart and soul,
I’m lost in a time I wish not to end,
As we gently dance to the music of love,
I am my beloved and my beloved is mine.

(A love poem dedicated to my loving husband)

In response to the daily prompt: Music, Sing
