Sonnet Xxv

Poem By Adeyemi Joshua

A maiden was seen seating at the edge of the sea,
The scene lent was of a posture cursing,
Perhaps by ills done in the past,
Or absurdities suffered to extend vast:

Twas truth of this, that humility had sat alone,
In her weary thoughts and reminiscing drown.
She'd been broken hearted by a dart,
And even the cause, on her patience did fart.

Thus did she resolved to be a maiden of her own,
To lend to none, but have to herself alone.
Hence, she resolved whirling her time a-shore,
Perhaps the wandering hay will at last fall.

So did it perchanced, that the hay did vacate the scene,
And Humility vowed to alone be seen.

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
