To Nigeria From Home

To Nigeria From Home

From my kitchen,

I travel

to exotic Nigeria!

I smell

the nutty, spicy and salty scent

of African Groundnut Stew

emanating from my soup pot.

Mmmmm……. it’s lip-smacking yummy!

I crave

the mushy, fluffy and plain

batch of homemade fufu

to eat with my stew!

I’ll make it soon!

My soul gambols

to the meditative vibration

of the ancient Oja flute

emerging from my phone.

It’s penicillin for my spirit!

From my home office,

I listen to

the native Yoruba language

being spoken

in YouTube video clips.

From the lobby,

I carefully attend to

the novel accents

of Yoruba speakers.

It feels like I’m already in Lagos, Nigeria!
