A TALE OF THE CHAIN BLAME

Once upon a timeA fly cried that claps are serving as traps…in wanting it deadSo it sang unsingable songs in the ears…of a hiding nightingaleWhose frustration was visible even to the sky IIThe nightingale…afraid of the children’s catapult…and the hunter’s gunFled to hide amidst the fowls on the groundSinging beautiful sad songs about its ordealUntil […]

UNCLEAR EPIPHANY

                  When the soul does not fit And the heart fails to sit When the eyes swim in tears With the head drowned in fears The body moans in the heat   In millions I feel the claws of lions Every set of smiling teeth seethe Pain […]

SHOWN LOVE

Converging crowd Donning love Thinking aloud A startled heart smiles   Goodness is freshness When the winds of life blow Crashing and beating For it is then the crowds chant in your favour. Amoafowaa Sefa Cecilia (c) 2014
