Sonnet Xxiv

Poem By Adeyemi Joshua

A pair was seen swimming in the raging water:

First would go and made fun of her. A quarter
After, the second take to same ordeal,
And prepared for the sea a meal.
The sea had pretended in a trick,

To get them both by a risk.
So, did they continue in their folly,
Till an octopus was sent to tune the story.
At this, the former ho at the latter,
But drown amidst the rages was she after.
So, did the leftover made for her way,

Wailing for her twin sister, leading her tears astray:
Thus was Joy left alone to bear the pain
Of the parent, after happiness(by the sea)was slain.

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
