My Natural Beauty


Exploring my talent, putting it into use in the literary world for the benefit of humanity and promotion of communication

Natural Beauty 1

  1. Butterflies belong to insect class

Hexapod invertebrates are they,

Insects are the largest group

Within arthropoda phylum

2. Some insects are beautiful

Out of those beautiful ones

Art thou oh butterflies

You excel many in beauty

3. There is this butterfly

Its movement was zigzag

In nature, just like

Other known butterflies

4. I was attracted to its movement

Kept my gaze on it,

On this was I

My mind was struck

5. My mind races tro and fro

Until it settles on something

We used to study about a

A movement like this

6. Oh yeah, yeah I r’membered

‘Tis true of the Science class

Very correct of Chemistry class

There is a movement like this

7. Molecules do not move

Except moving in zigzag manner

Creating a pattern that

Is unique an’ different

8. This butterfly kept flying

Rested on somethin’

Couldn’t stay long there

But microseconds stayed there

9. Looks unsatisfied on the thing

Flapped its wings

Ready to take off,

Off into the air again

10. Flying off that thing,

My eyes would not

Let it off me,

Kept following this butterfly

11. What I sense of sight

Gathered was collated ‘gether

Nervous signals sent

Transmitted to my brain

12. Wow! I found myself

In Biology class,

Though still monitoring

Butterfly movement where I was

13. Thinking procedure initiated

Inside of my brain

Thought of the butterfly's

Many robes on display.

Butterfly and Flower

Butterfly and Flower

Natural Beauty 2

14. Its wings were full

Of many colours,

Perfect combination,

Said I to myself,

15. God is a beautiful Being,

As exemplified in this insect.

This I said to myself

As the insect keeps moving

16. The haphazard movement,

Continued Transciently resting

On somethings on many

Instances before leaving,

17. This connects my mind

To the elementary studies

My elementary Mathematics,

What? What? What?

18. I cannot come off it

What is it ‘am driving at?

Cannot immediately

Figured it out

19. Is it possible to calculate

The time spent on each

Of the things the insects

Rests on before taking off?

20. This was what jumped

Into my heart

Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!

This thought seems elusive

21. The thought is out of

My immediate purview,

Elementary Mathematics

Cannot solve this puzzle,

22. Just then, My Darling's

Thought swelled up in

My heart, like

Like a rising sea

23. Oh, My Jewel...

Oh, My Platinum...

Oh My Scientist.

Oh! My Calculation

24. My Darling, My Star,

My linen, My love,

My Diamond, My One

And only in the world

25. My Lover can do this,

Yeah oh Yeah, I said

To none but myself,

My Lover can

26. My lens yet focus

On the insect movement

The signals were sent

To the retina

27. From the retina

They converged and

Were taken by the

Optic nerves

Natural Beauty 3

28. From the optic nerve

Bundles they were taken

To the cerebrum

The zone for seeing

29. These moves of the

Insect kept on stimulating

Me, as the zone sent back

The processed images

30. On these were i

And lo…the insects

In its characteristic movement

Rests on my shoulder

31. As this butterfly did this,

I viewed how my Darling's

Head used to rest

On my shoulder

32. My darling finds my

Shoulder a comfort

Zone, My Love always

Does rest on me

33. Not long after this,

The butterfly lifts

Self up, taken solace

On one of my fingers

34. It rested on the posterior

Side of my hand,

It got itself rested on

My wedding ring finger,

35. Then, muttered I to me,

This is nothing but a

Positive signal of how my

Finger will bear Love’s ring

36. The symbolism of its rest

On my finger,

Could nay brushed aside

For it tarried there

37. The butterfly did not hurriedly

Flew away as it had been doing

On other things rested on afore,

Then I had better view of it

38. The insect exercises no fear.

While in this position

Then said I to myself,

My Joy...My Star...

Natural Beauty 4

39. My Darling...My Heartbeat,

Exercises no iotum of fear,

Allows no doubt in you for me,

You are at the right place

40. You are at the right

Atmosphere, the centre of love,

You will be ever loved...

As long as longetivity can be

41. Many may lie to you,

Some will want to lure you

Away, away from me,

Away from the atmosp’re of love

42. You have to ward them

Off you, your heart

Your position of love

This is quintessential

43. But as you chase them away,

Know ye that you are in

A very sure place...

Comfort place for your heart


Natural Beauty 5

44. My Beauty, My Love,

You have been adorned

With special beauty,

Beauty that is natural

45. Natural beauty are rare

Verily rare to come by

In this dispensation

You are rarely rare, Love

46. You are beautiful than

Any animal or insect.

You are beautiful and charmin’

Than the world’s most beautifuls

47. My Crown, My Star,

You have found a head,

My Love, My Valves

You have found a heart

48. My partner, my peer,

You have find a brother,

My spouse, my companion

You have find a friend,

49. You have find me-

Your Gem! Your Love!

As we jointly move in love,

We cannot stumble

50. Grow in love, Love

Grow in joy, my Joy,

Grow in peace, my Peace,

Grow in God's grace,

51. As we grow as One,

Blessings of God abound,

My rare Darling...

‘Am subsumed in thine love

@CHATRA RAM, thanks.

CHATRA RAM from BARMER INDIA on April 28, 2020:

Very nice writing

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 18, 2020:

God is awesome. Hope to do more with time by his grace

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 17, 2020:

That is great published 3 Christian Books. You have accomplished a lot and should be proud of yourself. I have not published anything. And I doubt that I ever do. You know God has blessed you and by the Lords power you have published 3. Three the trinity .

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 17, 2020:

Alright D. I have told you that, I just discovered that I have this talent, I was never a student of Literature except perhaps when we were in High School and were forced to buy literature textbooks and read...Jane Eyre, Marriage of Anansewa, Lord of the Flies.. beyond those level, that I changed into science class, I have been subsumed in Chemistry etc and when in University, studied about Human Beings, Physiology, Anatomy etc.

However, my spiritual mentor talks to me and I develop flair for writing, and published 3 Christian books, because publishing secular books I won't be able to market it, None would accept my work.

But i discover I have it. Posted some on Facebook and were appreciated before coming across an advert that I can be paid for writing on this page and site (Hubpages), then i said let me try and wow! I thank you all for accepting my naive works and encouraging me.

I have however tried one without numbering...Hope it passes the tests and you will see it. I hope you and the lovers of good works globally will like them (those narrative poetry).

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 16, 2020:

I am laughing Olusegun .if you like numbering. Number it, the words are beautiful that I sing and hum them in a lyrical poetry type of way.

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 16, 2020:

Okay D, I will try it. Numbering them makes me harness my thoughts, but I will try what you suggested in the next one God willing!

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 16, 2020:

I have one suggestion . Don't number them . This is poetry you write. When it is a article that is fine and then in the article if you flow into poetry part (don't number the poetry) Other than that you write great and the poetry is beautiful.

OLUSEGUN (author) from NIGERIA on March 11, 2020:

Uhm mm. Thanks a lot. I appreciate. What else can I do? Trying to improve myself.

Diane Denison from Cincinnati Ohio on March 11, 2020:

I am speechless it is beautiful. You have been diving into the delight of all creation
