THE PROPOSAL By Bada Yusuf Amoo

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

All formality

In the wind thrown

Our reflection gleaming

On the lens of imagination

They met

At the soul interchange

 

I think I should

Retire into your comfort

But Fridause

Will it not be too

Fast, or an illusion

Like a sun in the evening

 

The wind plays around

Time steals in between

Kindness of God – life

And death

Couple of status, as

Memorial – break the dawn

 

You brought something

My muse

In bifurcated recluse

Your presence so magnetic

Unite the detachment

Fridause, show me your image

 

I had been a prisoner

Within myself

I massage myself

With piece of meditation

And you came smartly

With a piece of freedom

 

Between us stood

A heap of time

So close upon us

Like yesterday and today

And tomorrow

What we may even think

 

I have paid nostalgic visit

Into imagination

The memoir could be

Evergreen book

But your eternal presence

Could mould better laughter

 

And our differences

Could wear fine indifference

You’re a fresh flame

I can drink noise in moderation

My pen is fine to serve you

Only if you’ll accept my weaknesses
