  • Oolong at Mum’s

    Photo Credit – Unicef Happy New Year guys. So so excited for 2017. God bless you guys. Enjoy some Oolong while you read okay. 🙂   There is a difference in the way he looks at her now. When he looks at her at all. He spends most of the time looking at the child than he does her or […]

  • A King and His Kingdom

    18/08/1975 Dear Mum, I can’t believe I am here. It is everything you said it would be. First day I arrived felt like a homecoming. I could hardly sleep that night. The next day we went on a school tour with a student guide. It felt like I knew this place better than he did as we walked us through places […]

    I started writing this a while ago on Medium. I am still not sure I have the right ending. Endings bore me these days.  But let’s talk about this photo. I woke up like that y’all. There is something about NYC that brings out the fineness in me. Even without having a bath or makeup. LOL.  I haven’t loved a […]

  • The Porch

    By Kiah on February 21, 2016
    Photo credit: Simi Vijay Photography I wrote this a while back. It is one of those stories that I didn’t know how to handle. It is Kiah-sad. Kiah-sad is a good thing. Kiah-sad means hope dey plenty. Lol. Enjoy. He is smiling when our plane touches down in Lagos. I can tell from the way the sunlight bounces gently over […]

  • A Place called Home

    By Kiah on November 3, 2015
      It will be winter soon but for this one day in October, it is warm enough for him to wear her favorite t-shirt. He can still remember the way her face shone with excitement as she handed him the t-shirt at Easter. He can still remember the way she smelled like spring when he pulled her close to say […]

  • The End to Love

    By Kiah on August 6, 2015
      It was my birthday a few days ago….I love birthdays. Last year was a tough year but I look back with a full heart,  a heart full of thanksgiving. I look ahead with an even fuller heart.  I had lunch with a couple of new and old friends. I looked around the table and I can’t describe how it […]

  • The Coin Fairy

    By Kiah on July 28, 2015
    For T.Dot… a very special city.   She waits until it is dark before returning to the wishing wells. There are many in the city so she rarely returns to the same one two nights in a row. Some wells are better than others; sitting like beacons of hope in the center of the city. She returns to these ones […]

  • What She Would Be

    By Kiah on June 9, 2015
    Shola Allyson’s voice gives me goose pimples. She has inspired this one. It is  a bit long. Forgive me. But there is so much I wanted to do with Sally and Ropo and Todd. I hope you know that the future should not be mourned for. Even if it seems lost; it isn’t. It is in the future and it will […]

  • Where Broken Hearts Go

    By Kiah on March 20, 2015
    There is a little bit of the movie, Inception, in this one but that isn’t what inspired it. Genesis inspired this. That and love.  Seth is almost here; don’t give up yet. Don’t you dare.   Something happened while we slept. I have spent many days and countless nights wondering what it was. 3 weeks later and I still don’t […]

      When you read one man like you read no one else, you will soon start to sound like him.  At least, I hope. This is a tribute to John Irving’s The Cider House Rules. This is also inspired by the Bible- Psalm 68:6. Let me know when you find it. 😉   When someone you love dies, you go […]
