Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!

Beyond Appearance

Yes, I adore your eyes
Not only for their unique shade of brown
But also for the way they see the world clearly
Even on the cloudiest of days

Yes, I adore your lips
Not only for their kissable qualities
But also for the syllables that flow from them
Never uttering an unpleasant sound

Yes, I adore your nose
Not only for the cute way it flares when you laugh
But also for the deep breathes taken in
As we meditate on the meaning of life

Yes, I adore your ears
Not only for their elegance when properly adorned
But also for being attentively attuned
Hearing and listening with an open heart

Yes, I adore your hips
Not only for holding and caressing at night
But also for bearing the Divine burden
Of producing an carrying the next generation
