On This Moonlit Night

Poem By Ibrahim Bidu

If only on this moonlit night
I could have you by my side
As I watch this sparkling water;
Lay on your bosom my head
Listen to yo heart beat
Occasionally interrupted
By the murmur of the ocean
Possibly infuriated by the close embrace,
Pass my fingers through
As I drink the sweet scent
Of your glittering and glistening hair,
Feeeel the warmth
Of your long graceful neck
Revealed as you struggled
To adjust your scarf
To fend off the breeze's caress,
Into your large sleepy eyes gaze,
And feel your fresh misty breath
On my cold face;
I wouldn't say
I will be the happiest man alive
But I promise I will
Carry this memory to the day
I will take my last breath!

The moon shyly hides

Behind a speck of cloud

Memories Of My Town (Merti)

On your streets I grew;
Learnt to draw and stones throw
Mastered the values
And learnt to be shrewd

I Tell You!

I pay you
though grumbling at times
I told you,
And I know you know too

Tel Me Why

I can’t deny am taken
As I can’t that am shaken
The space into which you’ve intruded
Has left me dumbfounded:


I sit
I stare
I try to rise
I hesitate

Did You See?

Were you there when the sun rose?
Did you miss the yellow glow?
The color of pure gold
Or so I was told
