Suggest Me A Name

Poem By Adeyemi Joshua

If I be unknown,
And my qualities are into darkness thrown.
If I be a man of wits,
But my name you cannot with my works merge with.
If I be distinct in my works,
And yet my identity is held in the elephant's tusk.
If I be like great poets,
And had with many poets duet,
My fame travel like fire throughout the globe,
Yet my name is 'the unknown'.
If I be not Joshua, nor bear the chain of Adeyemi,
What name would you suggest me?

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
