Treasure Island

Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

This to you I say

This to you I say
If you, allow I to say
Though I, you do not know
But you, I know but in brief
From the moments we shared in brief

Your striking beauty
In my heart resonates
Your calmness
Mine mind accepts
Yourself I like

Your rosy lips
With a honey smile drips
Your finely cut face
Shine with a rosy radiance
Mentioning not the finely formed figure

Your whole self
Like a diamond
Delicate yet strong
In space hang
That mine eyes have behold

This to you I say
Come together we stay
Friendship to form
A relationship to form
Our lives to share

This invitation you I beseech
Accept it forward us to march
For ahead lies much
For you and I to search
And share life as much

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
