safari blue


all alone

an island in the pacific

head above the water

at dawn

noon comes with high tide

i lie buried beneath the emerald green

at one with the reefs

i am not stable

i am

and I am not

  1. First, I gotta admit that ‘TZC’s looking all ‘yellowy sunshiny’, like you’re putting the lighters up for that giant telecomms company whose official color’s close to this one; in a kinda ‘solidarity’ to ’em and that’d be really weird considering the fact that there’s a lotta ‘love lost’ between you two! πŸ˜ˆπŸ˜†
    But then again, sunflower yellow mighty appeals to you Doc, so little wonder! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    Am done throwing shades at cha Doc, your glorious haven’s pretty inviting, I love it…totally! β€πŸ˜„

    I gotta ask though…why would anyone wanna go to an Island and abide alone? Plus, as though that aint unsettling enough, he/she becomes one with the ocean and not just that…he/she goes further to take on a particular feature of the ocean….instability; though the Narrator questions just how stable or unstable he/she is! What’s the deal with that? 😁

    Beautiful composition as always Doc, love the dark turn the poem took ‘at noon’ and most especially at the final lines that absolutely teases with these words….’And I am not’! Love the suspense you created right there! πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„

    ‘Tis pretty good to see you pop out Doc…always! πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜ƒ Kudos Sire, rock ye on! πŸ‘‰


    1. Oh Yemie, I am glad that you love the new look.
      disclaimer, this new look has nothing to do with MTN or its brand.
      The poet did not go to an island. the narrator uses the metaphor of an island in the pacific to paint a picture of his emotional state.
      there are some islands in the pacific ocean that appear in the morning when the tide is low…and then by noon, when high tide comes, are submerged. it is from this analogy that the narrator draws his imagery.
      it is good to pop out too…thanks for always cheering me on…
      you are actually the rock star


      1. Hehehe! I stiffled a guffaw with the disclaimer thingy you threw in! You just had to go there, didn’t you Doc?! 😦Letting the Cat outta the bag by way of ‘name-dropping’, as in no bullshitting or beating around the bush huh?!😩 Rich Doc…very! I’d be sooo damned!πŸ˜†

        Plus, am pretty much aware just how ‘huge’ a fan you are of that company and their services! 😁Was only looking to ‘unsettle’ you and it actually did work too! Dayum!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

        Your imageries and analogy I find very insightful and clever….totally spot on with regards to the state of mind of the Narrator; coupled by your certain fascination with the seas and oceans! Nice!!!

        Thanks a whole lot for thinking me a Rockstar too…am ab-SOO-lutely psyched up to just….just take on the world! 😁 Shalom my good friend! πŸ˜‡πŸ˜„


  2. I love the simplicity of this one….yet the delectable nature of it cannot be denied. For me, this says that life is all about the seasons and the tides….


drop me a line, maybe?
