Best Poem of Chibueze Oscar Osuji

Purple Flowers

To plant purple flowers as the corridor
Of a big ranching range of a manor-
Mansion: Soft spankling purplish phyta and-
Lovely, I would love to grasp with my hand
To feel the entrancing purple colour.

Day to day, I glance at the vineyard's law
Which tells neither can the flowers be pluck'd, nor
Can they be tak'n away to a new land,
To plant purple flowers.

I wrote a dear note to a farmhouse for
A few purple flowers perhaps two or more,
To be sent to me by a mailing band
(Hidd'n away for the vineyard's law had bann'd...)
I secretly kept a place ...

Read the full of Purple Flowers

Ode To Envy

MY BROWS, concave in mischief plot
Furr'wing my forehead in a knot,
Envy come O wick'd wave
Blow'ng your breath in my human blood;
Let your tides roar as a rowing flood
In th' harbour of a slave.

I have seen the joys of a friend
Of which I neither comprehend

[Hata Bildir]
