Old Mrs Idunnu


Old grumpy Mrs Idunnu
That old woman living in my compound
Her face is always decorated with frowns
Striving to prove her name wrong


Old stiff Mrs Idunnu
That old woman who sits outside my compound
Her face is always pinched
Especially when my siblings are happy


Old lonely Mrs Idunnu
That old woman who lives alone
Her hands are always busy picking beans
Especially when our friends come to visit


Old Mrs Idunnu
That rather spirited woman
Today she's wearing a smile on her face
Her mouth is busy reading out words
From the Bible Mom gave her.


*Idunnu means Happy

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Val' I engage.

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
