Loving medicine and poetry

Waiting for!
Labyrinths of desert landscape
Where owls hoot from dusk to dawn
The hope of the lily go gay in the wind
Sprawling to fate of death and dry
When mortals shuffle in hunger pangs
In search of fruit from chlorophyll

Waiting for!
Night awake in search of dawn
When the cock crows
To the time voyage of time
When the new born wails
To a welcome into pains
For the earth is all blurred and gloom
To lavish expectations of darkness and night

Waiting for!
The rays of hope eternity
When the balloon of gloom
Bursts into a discharging sore
Of many sweet grapes!
Then agony with pride
Waiting ripples of the rising sun


Trapped in nature’s superhighways
To commune with night in Ekpeke
Where the wild is awake in awe
When fight and death
Freeze in blocks of nothingness
When the unknown marries the subconscious
And sinister sisters stage a play
Riding the range of spirits immortal
When hell is loose on planet earth
For vulnerable mortals to watch in fright
And seek divine guidance at dawn

Agents of darkness plow and harvest
The devil’s Adams apple
Which denied mortal man
The glory and perfection of paradise
Turning our day into nightmares

“Waiting” and “Night” were written in 1996 in Nigeria.
