#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 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

#FloetryByJulietKego: Wings of Words

 

 

 

 

Travel with me
on winged-planes of poetry
come walk with me, beloved
– barefoot, on a restless red earth
with sands, hot and fine
– longing for a feel
of travel-lust laden feet
surrounded by scents
of cool and crispy pine
open up; drink my wine
sit on our seat of stillness
let’s co-create an alchemy;
bear witness and prophesy
with sacred sounds of silence,
obim utter nothing, aye, no kpim
let’s ride this wave, on wings of words―

#FloetrybyJulietKego: Collecting Dust…

“One day you will ask me which is more important? My life or yours? I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life.” – Kahlil Gibran

Collecting Dust Poetry by juliet Kego Floetry Kahlil Gibran Quote

You are a special story-book
I shall never grow tired of reading
yet must somehow put down
on a console in my basement

#121. Floetry by JulietKego: Palm Sunday

Happy Easter
Beloved Isa,
When you entered our hearts
By way of Jerusalem, we knelt
by the roadside; laid down our palms…
Today, I am basking in the memories
of the eloquence of our sacred love.
TRINITY: I have loved all 3 of you;
Three persons inhabiting ONE being.
Son, the guileless love of my youth;
Father, the security of my seasons
and sire of my living, un-birthed seeds;
And holiest of Spirits, the conjurer
of the formless WORD into the formed.
All 3, each of you an alchemist of love.
You melt me, knead me, shape me,
burn me, weld me and mould me
into ecstatic, pure molecules of love.
– Cyber-hugs 💕

Floetry by JulietKego: I.Love.You
I.Love.You.
It is not a declaration
Or a proclamation
It is not a place
Or a feeling
Or a thought
or a thing
or words
Or a phase
or a meaning-less-ful phrase
or a craze
or magic
or madness
It is not about me
or about you
or about love
It is not to be connected
or pieced apart
or to be analyzed
or proved
or justified
It is not about truths or lies
It is not a blame
or a name
or a game
or a journey
or a destination
or a complication
It is not about worthiness
Or brokenness
or being lost or found
or falling or rising
or right or wrong
It is simply this:
I.Love.You.
Here. There.
Nowhere. Everywhere
Simple. Simply.This;
I.Love.You. 🙂
