When Body and Beauty fade


Noel Ihebuzor

Prompted by a poem by Nomzi Kumalo

Peel away all
layer by layer
strip bare, bare
the peripherals
to the till of the core!

Can you hear the core still hum
do you feel the peal of the core
in the still of new time
– if YES, then it was worth it all!

    1. Love is

      Body, booty and beauty, they blossom, bloom and change, the wind of time blows them and they bow, but loves remains, constant, never changing only changing its manner of expression.
