Odhiambo Gilbert Francis Poems
The river is no more, No flood, no splash, no roar; A solitary portion, a king missing his throne Kowtows to bemoan the hard fate that left him forlorn.
Today Was Not Ours
Today was not ours Two souls plan as their hearts wish The gods have said NO
Love Gives You The Wings
Love gives you the wings Float in the feeling my love Float and come to me
Elegy For Lost Friendship
You appeared, suddenly. We exchanged fast notes as if time would stop, a chance would be lost.
Attempts at justice go boink Peace grating down people's throats Restrained calm, or else...
This tree is the province of the devil He sits on the swing in wait for his victims Who will defy their parents' advice To keep away from the parlous sway.
Rose dear, come let us sing a song, A song of our lives and the completeness of our union, Of hope rising above a sea of fear, Years of mournful numbers and uncertain desires.
Take These Legs Of Mine
Take these legs of mine If your desire they define; Leave me not behind.
My Blood Boils
My pretty friend, There are things about me Regarding you Which you know not.
Only One Answer
On a calm, quiet evening A listless soul stirs To remember a time Of fleeting thoughts
Have I Loved Amiss
Have I loved amiss? Someone tell me please, Do all happen like this, That because of a kiss
Attempts at justice go boink
Peace grating down people's throats
Restrained calm, or else...
Anger concealed in every heart
Vampire smile is made art
Till temper ruptures its limit
Oh, blood will flow in a minute!
(with Emerenziana O., March 2013)
