A Moment of Monorhymes


"THE MURMURING STREAM" Farewell to the murmuring stream Flowing away lives in cordial team Set like sun to somewhere with their seam Left their images into days dream Stands like a memory to shed them beam Rising to the sky wound steam Stays hearts of mourners like past gleam © ALIU KAZEEM (Nigeria)


"I'M A CORDIAL MAN" I'm a cordial man with a beautiful sight, I know this is just not right But no, I will never fight It's hard for me to write. How can I turn on the light It looks like the naughty night But where is the noble knight Oh, I need help tonight. Oh God, lend me your light Give me strength to write. © King Drey Phemy



It's been a year since we have this deafening silence. All this time, all I want is your musical presence. My heart is screaming to death because of your absence. The cold wind touching my skin, its coldness is so dense. Contrary to what I feel inside, my love is condense. The beating of my heart, its vibration is intense. Only you can make this heartbeat have a sense. If ever, this season has the hopeless essence And the snowy scenery shows no more magnificence. Still, there is a cordial spring that will make a difference, Sprouting the leaves of hope retaining its innocence, Bringing our lost December regain the love that's immense. © Jeffrey Cejero



On his cordial love I fell Someone I fought to dwell Miserable life like hell I admitted my fault, forget and nothing to tell... Now I am brave to spell His name and say a farewell No more promises and sounds of bell Just make myself happy and well. © Veronica Roma Pingol


"IN THE HOLY PLACE" (Dedicated to my late maternal grandmother whose birthday was on December 26th) The cordial atmosphere of this place Reminds me of the Holy Father's grace. With teary eyes I listen to the hymn of praise, Grandma gently brushes the tears from my face. © Gheorghe Laura


"A HOPE FOR A NEW YEAR" (Monorhymed Strophe)

In this special period of the year, We yearn for a time of no fear, We draw much hope in our hearts, dear! We just hope for a be'er life here.
