Contemplation on the Odu Ika Oyekun


This morning I 
Woke up
And the world seemed
Different
This morning I
realized
Life was my
Cup of coffee
Sometimes cold and bitter
Sometimes warm and sweet
Black as darkest night 
Or 
Light as desert sands
It filled my mouth and
Washed away my
Slumber
Today
I woke up and 
Tasted this gift I'm
Living
Today
I started the
Rest of my
Life

Contemplation on the Odu Oshe Iwori

What is
Art?
A question often asked
and rarely answered
however there is only
one thing to say
Art
True art
is not about
beauty
since defining beauty is both
illusive and meaningless
Art
is when the artist
reveals to us
by any medium
a vision of
ourselves
When even one person
sees
hears
feels
tastes
smells
your creation
and is able find
themselves
in it
you have created
Art
