Four Haikus

Ogedengbe Tolulope Impact

By Ogedengbe Tolulope Impact

Agodi garden
sipping clouds
from my coffee

By the creeks of the Niger
father’s gravestone . . .
just before the sea

Oduduwa’s land . . .
the footprint of Oranmiyan
stands high

Osun river . . .
the goddess’s teeth
on white bricks
