Done for Recuerda Mi Corazon

On April 17, 2017,  Adjei Agyei Baah, (a world-renowned haiku poet from home) and myself facilitated a haiku workshop with students of the Creative Writing Class of the Department of English, University of Ghana, Legon. At the end of the workshop, the students came up with lovely haiku of their own, twenty-eight (28) in all. Adjei and I came up with one each. Mine is produced below for your pleasure  🙂

Superwoman!

Re-posting this poem in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Superwoman

Woman, thy name is suffering universal

Fettered

Leashed

Bound

Chained

By tradition, prejudice, hatred, perverted passion and

the whims and caprices of man-made rules

Liberate me to reach the stars

For there I belong

Among the firmament

Talent brimming

Superwoman
