Praises of the Petal


Morenikeji,
Ruby petals under the golden sun,
The boabab that gets better by the ages,
Rhythm of the flower whistled song.

Morenikeji,
Essence of gold and light of diamond,
Book of warmth of countless pages,
Red of the rose, green of the almond.

Morenikeji,
what luck my heart did make me have,
the joy I see and the way I seek,
the beat of my heart and the love that I have.

And this I'd say over and over again,
with loud, loving, late night whispers,
to turn your pains to a dream tale,
where you in my arms our boat sails
us kissing, under the clear full moon.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
