Types of Stones

Written for:  Carpe Diem Special #154, Afriku, haiku from Africa
(idea of Adjei Agyei Baah)
I have another wonderful haiku poet from Ghana, Africa, for you this month as our featured haiku poet. His name is Adjei Agyei Baah and he is the co-founder of the Poetry Foundation Ghana. He has “invented” the (as he calls it) Afriku, the haiku from Africa.

shoreline pebbles…
a reminder of how far
we have come

preparing
daddy’s delicacy-
taking stones out of gizzard

stone temple
leftover boulders
add to reverence

smooth surface of stone
statues fronting museum
unlike kidneys stones

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
