"Face of the Sky"

See the sky laced with parches The broken clouds hung down Like a crystal, crawling to a side Covered in the clustered stripes Comes in rainbow to hold rain back Later stars sprinkle lights on the surface Wears day diamond in the night Waxing like the garden of Eden Flows in blossom in circle of day Lovely to look at in golden specks Frees from the smudges of fogs in clear Spotted the weather attractive Spills smile in the face of sleeping night Holds heart in a longest relief. © Aliu Kazeem


"At Dawn"

At dawn hear crow of cock wakes hope. Rose to set a stage for days to bulb in glowing. To sow on fertile dreams to hatch well. Sweat comes along sun frown in work. With force sailing through future path Sway like a leaf to have sweet face later. Start early to reach what fate has for us. Diced a game to hold a flower of all time. To leave a golden scar for other set to see. © Aliu Kazeem


"When Dews Trickle" When dews trickle down Start the journey in cold Leave before sun frowns Wade through the pains Fear no shadow of shore See the harbor from here Waving a wool of dream Sow in dawn to reap later Hold rein of smiling future The shade of a golden row Age ripens lie down on rest © Aliu Kazeem
