#FloetryByJulietKego: Warmth

Open up,
let me crawl
into the crevices
of your soul’s linnings

Gift me your warmth
from the fiery embers
of your sated spirit
a cold, cold world out there
sit with me in silence
cure my chattering
be ye a safe shelter
to my shattering storms

How you ahhmaze!
like a Rembrandt painting
found in a Salvation Army
(Okirika) thriftstore
today be the maze
let me lose my lies
and bury my cries
inside your solid walls

Turn on your inner light
illuminate my pathway
hold up life’s mirrors
and let me find my truth

Floetry by JulietKego: Ha! Your Laughter

Ha
Dear Lord!
(A pause, a pun, an exclamation)…
I hear traces of thunder
In your laughter
And one day, I will write
Your laughter into words
Capture how your larynx opens
Like an unfolding petal to my sun
How your throat swallows up my air
As it convulses in mirth,
And on your cheeks
Unformed dipped-in dimples
Struggle not to cheekily crinkle
As hot and cold air whooshes out,
Condensing into droplets
Washing my body-soul-spirit
Like vibrating rivulets of rains
And I become Earth’s wet centre;
A pulsating core of the universe.

#FloetrybyJulietKego: The Season of My Love

 

In the season when I first loved you
I swear I heard a sigh from the lady rain
as she wept non stop, (unlady-like), out loud
I guess from the fullness of your man cloud
Perhaps like me, she could not contain
the sight of your beauty-powered grace

#FloetryByJulietKego: A Night Out With The King.

Juliet Kego Ume-Onyido Poet A Night Out with the KingAn invitation to dine with the King?
With wonder we all fall on bended knees.
Here all that is of darkness flees
Bring out the box with a baguette diamond ring
We shall adorn ourselves to enter his holy place
Do we put on precious pearls and silken lace?
Do we bath ourselves in red rubies of fires?
Or in our stunning, sparkling sapphires?
Do we come with heavy hearts, bare and open?
With sealed souls now ready to heal and awaken?

#FloetryByJulietKego: A Breakfast of Poems

I woke up today
with a sweet-tangy taste
of your praise-poetry
on my tongue

For breakfast, I served
woven words, crunchy
like a waffle basket
with drops of honeyed
syrup soaked in

I inhaled and released
wispy fragrances
of sweaty spent stories
that escaped our bodies
I am woke in you

#FloetrybyJulietKego: A Bouquet of Poems

Juliet Kego Ume-Onyido

Today,
I found a bouquet of Earth’s 7 poems
resting on my doorsteps
one for each layer of creation….

The air in Judea came alive
with perfumes of your poems
a hint of humble hibiscus,
giving, gazing gardenias,
wise, impish izoras,
thorny, red roses
fun, flirty lilies,
a wisp of zany zinnias,
and a lone, shy, smiling sunflower,
all laced up in a vase,
filled with the aromas
of your presence, Yeshua
I am Elizabeth,
John danced in joy in my womb
when you came visiting
