Morning Cry

Poem By Elvis Towolawi

Chirping insects
alone
Have the bravery
Lost to roving knighted shoulders
To violate your calm

Crowing cockerels
alone
Are valor drunk
To praise free a world
Shawled stupefied in Morpheus' idap arms

Many may rebuff
Oblivious of your touch
Still at last
To your charms we yield like clouds before the moon

Blest is the man
Upon whose field you smile
Dew shall perch on his plant and his clay pot Shall see no ruin

Comments about Morning Cry

You succeeded in using imageries to drive home your thought. Heavenly dew is a blessing. We all needs it. Good job, I like it

Remember

Flatter
Smooth as butter
Loot
The land's a war spoil

Wooing Ilaje

Blown ashore
by the steer wind of passion
I have sought like a pilgrim
your face masked in faceless distance

A Woman's Strength

Naivety clothed her
untamed in wild weather easy her innocence broke catapulted by one bloke albeit in faith strong
her love fell wrong
talon nerves fray

Once Upon A Creek

Once upon a creek
Whilst cold crabs bade graying day well
I saw a woman spry like a dolphin
And bold as a crocodile
