Lantern and Lamb

He was both the lantern and the lamb

He was the light

Clothed in a dusty frame

That still shone brightly

In spite of the darkness surrounding him.

Night Files: On the Bus

night files

Lost; staring at her as she slept so calmly, leaning on the dirty bus window. She must have been pretty exhausted as she slept immediately she got into the bus. She looked so peaceful, sleeping away all her sadness. She heaved a sigh in her sleep as though she had heard his thoughts. She tried to adjust in the uncomfortable bus seat while holding her arms around her shoulders, obviously cold from the heavy downpour a couple of minutes back.  Continue reading “Night Files: On the Bus”

Growing up in a quiet neighborhood,  one of my best moments was riding my bicycle around the serene streets.

Night Files- Mirror Mirror

newproject_1_original-34
Mirror mirror on the wall 
Who is the fairest of them all
None shall before me stand tall 
All proud and self loving will fall
Mirror mirror on the wall
Surely I am the fairest of them all 
Strong, handsome and tall
With me none can brawl
Oh foolish mortal how vain
You are of all most mundane
Ashamed you should certainly be
Of what behind the curtain you see
Peel back I say the veneer 
At you even the dead sneer
Mirror mirror on the wall 
Who then is the fairest of them all
Verily I say none at all
For same Icarus suffered a great fall
Musings of a not so perfect poet
(sage)

DTM: Of Rain Blues

Copy of Did You Know--- (1)

How has your week been?

Mine has been rainy really. And with every droplet comes the dampness and the blues. If you listen closely you can hear the heavy sighs of souls arching or maybe that’s just the sound of Lagosians dealing with crazy traffic. Whatever it is though, the blues are here but we can’t let ’em stay. Continue reading “DTM: Of Rain Blues”
