Freedom Friday offers me the opportunity to explore and just be me – uncut and raw…in a nice way that is. I’m thinking quietly – maybe loudly and I’m truly tempted to fill your world with the beauty of culture. In Nigeria, we are surrounded by good food and style. As a believer in beauty and good food, I derive pleasure in basking in the pure joys these bring.
So today, I’ll let you in on personal stuff and people I truly love as they display beauty in all their colours. I hope they are pleasing to your eyes, joyful to your heart and widening the smile across your face. Do tell me about it!
Sunu representing an Efik maiden
Beautiful for the stomach
Even with the colours behind, she stands out
That’s how we do it baby
Of sisters, daughters and bond
Indian meets Akwa Ibom
Sisters with Colours
The King & I
…with the Princess
Igwe and the Queen
More nutritious beauty
Boogie my girly girly!

I had so much to say on this haiku #82 Star&Child, so I did two! Hope you see the Star and the Child in it. What do you think Ronovan and Colleen?
Underneath the starry skies
Months gone, a third appears unplanned
When two became one.
Wisemen follow Stars
Grey and searching found
Years before His birth foretold
The star guides the lost.
