Tiny and Bright Orange Flower in the Woods

Hark! Don’t forsake me
Search for me
Look down low, in the underbrush
I will be good for you
Though I’ve been given just a
little of our endless world
I have the glowing fire of raging cordilleras
The blazing sunsets of Equatorial skies
The lustrous skin of succulent citrus
I am orange truth

Sitting by myself
Gazing in the water
The breeze blows
Mist trailing behind
The sound of seagulls not far
But in the far horizon
I can see the sun rise
A beautiful way
To start the day

Clouds

Clouds fall down upon me
Envelop me in your sweet coldness
The iciness will match my heart
Freeze me to the point where I feel nothing
Numbness is my saviour
I welcome a frostbitten heart and soul
I cannot feel
Therefore I cannot hurt
Clouds suffocate me
Clouds choke me in my bitterness
Clouds please take the pain away

Evening hues – Ajaytao

It is a beauteous evening, calm and free
The holy time is quiet as a Nun
Breathless with adoration; the broad sun
Is sinking down in its tranquility
The gentleness of heaven broods o’er the Sea
Listen! the mighty Being is awake,
And doth with his eternal motion make
A sound like thunder—everlastingly

Dear child! dear Girl! that walkest with me here
If thou appear untouched by solemn thought
Thy nature is not therefore less divine
Thou liest in Abraham’s bosom all the year
And worshipp’st at the Temple’s inner shrine
God being with thee when we know it not

Hibiscus at the Corner

The sun was hidden while I cried,
I wandered lost, in sight unseen.
When there upon the fence I spied
Hibiscus red, and leaves of green.

With petals wide to kiss my cheek,
The leaves unfurl and beckon so,
Around the corner fence it peeks,
Hibiscus red that warms my soul.

Out across the open lakes I stare,
Transfixed by the colour,
Grace and dignity; relaxed with no cares,
Pink plumes could get no fuller.

A swan sparkling with more class,
The brightness against the barren African plain,
The power of the landscape is hard to pass,
But the ocean of pink alights the darkest of grain.

One Foggy Morning

A dreamy state in morning mist,
As curls of cloud, recline on earth,
The walking feet dare not resist.

The pathway fading just ahead,
Recoiling into the low clouds,
A mystery remains instead.

Wandering feet know their own way,
Whilst striding on without time to pause,
And dwell upon what comes today.

Old footsteps echo on the breeze,
Through dreams of love that time forgot,
Yet still it whispers through the trees

Orange Marigold beauty – Ajaytao


Orange Marigold beauty - Ajaytao

Orange Marigold beauty – Ajaytao

Sweet nectar, ambrosia, for natures gentle ones.

Woven into garlands, yellow with tips of red,
Woven into memories with many a words unsaid.

Love’s hopes of an Indian  bride, clad with marigold,
With dreams wrought ‘n promises, her heart dearly holds.
Tearful farewells to soldiers, who traverse through destiny’s doors.
A garland weaved with love for  those, from across the seven shores.
And when the body is but a thought, as life grays and  olds
Wrapped in a hearse of love, their love, with weeping marigolds.
An offering so humble, yet flowers a Goddess  wears,
Auguring celebrations, with a soul’s heartfelt  prayers.
Orange, yellow, rust..to love, to pray, to mourn,
Golden, sun kissed, blessed.. marigolds that life adorns.

If I were a seagull,
I will soar high above the blue sky,
Along the cliff and shore of your heart,
While dancing to the music and rhythm of a love song.

I will ride the breeze of a lasting dream,
With the current of the singing ocean,
By the flapping of the jealous waves,
While searching for a nest for lovers.

If I were a seagull,
I come flying home to you

Trueman Razak Wahab
