Three Poems || by Akinola Amina

Flawless Morning

I began this poem with
A flash of memory,
Stressing the cries of yesterday's laceration.
The breeze roars,
I walk this poem to the sunflowers
Picking natures of high fragrance
A dance of sweet art. 
The poem met with the evening at the shore,
& Watching the tide of the river contents
My memories became a lover of diazepam
The sea is only a memory for gulls.


Halos in the Dark

After the storm went to God,
A silhouette was born
With a girl in simple harmonic motion.
Flexing her muscle and ribs like a survival of 
raining bullets
With fingers in colourful track 
Beneath the curves of her lashes.
Two dazzling dots beneath her eyes,
A new spring came to life 
Halos in the dark.


Ode to My Lover 

On the road to South,
I feel running splash of honey in my heart 
And my cheeks become a glittering marble.
I see myself as a song with long lyrics
& Hymns of majical raindrops,
Love sit in the peak of your brows,
Clothed with your hazel eyes and 
Roofed under the shining pigment of your heart. 
I see you as the master of my mind,
A sacred city you are 
Jerusalem himself.
A poem without you is a choked word .
