Luscious…

Ladies it's no secret that relationships and courting really sucks these days. Lots of men don't feel that they have to put forward any effort in getting to know us anymore. Most of our relationshi...

The maiden became the moon
lusciously ripe and full
her orbs spilt out of their confines

dark skin shiny, inviting and captivating

Intoxicating scents of the flower bushes
mingled with her fragrance of coconut and jasmine
filtering through the dark waves of night

causing him to pause at the mere sight

Bangles jingle as she dances bare feet
on the dewy grass of the valley
exultant and at ease with herself

undulating hips moved to her rhythm

Waist beads nestled low flashed with every step
the stirring in his loins as impure as his thoughts
and to have her as his own

perhaps, the greatest desire of his life.

What My Mama Said To Me…16

 

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby
never go borrowing
those things meant for others

or

be prepared
to live with the discomfort
that accompanies them.

What My Mama Said To Me…14

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
you know that life might choose
to hand you unwanted baggage;

but

you can choose to stand tall,
straighten your shoulders
and carry them with elegance.

What My Mama Said To Me…12

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
you can’t stand on the ground
and be pointing up at the ripe palm nuts,

You must be willing
to get your fingers stained with oil palm
in order to enjoy its succulence.

What My Mama Said To Me…10

Wisdom, Mother Knows Best, Proverbs, Mother and Child

Mama said to me, baby,
there comes a time when
you’ll tell your goat
to stop giving its milk for free,

‘cos a neighbour
used to getting free milk
will never purchase his own goat
instead, he’ll milk more to make cheese.
