Sonnet Xx

Poem By Adeyemi Joshua

The boastful hawk and the timid hen,
The frighful ox, and the light-eyed fiends.
The pompous cheetah coupled with the leopard,
Dangling in pride, twain almost a leper.
The often famished lion and his crew,
The octopus and the shark too.
The elegant peacock diverse in beauty,
Coloured in dexterity, enormous in duty.
The cunny tortoise and his tamed wife,
The Indifferent Eagle, often who strife.
The glamourous thane of all tusk,
His feets and the quatom of his guts.
The diverse reptiles, amphibians that mouth cannot say,
All constitute the kingdom where wastes lay.

Callous Harmattan Clutched

bounty body blushing
heaving hoisted hankering
under tainted touch
callous harmattan clutched


Poetry is like a hook that apprehends deflowered fishes with its varying wits. The hook is thrown into the ocean of the socitey and it caught informations that inspires the souls to keep writing. Poetry is a garment of many colours that no one is yet to distinguish the type of its colour he's putting on. It takes time, dedication and observation to ascertain the type because these are the regalia of poetry.

She is always on silk
Endowed in glittering stones.

Rusty Year Retiring

weary waves whooshing
hoisted horizons hankering
dark dances drooling
felon fate fostering

Bursting Busty Bruise

waning wits smirked
vying voluptuous verge
meagre mood metamorphose
saucy spell's sauce
