THE GIANT PEN ANTHOLOGY 197
The cool of the raging earth
Has paved ways for men in black
To trouble the Saint; all night.
This night is abused; you know-
For the devil is conjured
At the resting time of man.
If night find me with God’s grace .
I will write to praise Thee Lord ,
For the sweetness of the gloom.
If night find me with its ease .
I will reborn my stressed heart.
Find solace in the rest hour.
Perfect hour for witchcraft
Most restless time of the day
Crickets cry all night for food
Toads moan all night for light
Most rude time of the day
So surprised how you birthed light
Here you come again moonlight,
At the end of everyday
The hustle and bustle ends
And all is now put to rest,
Mothers sing their lullabies
Sun sets and the stars show up.
Oh! darkest night from the day.
You made my destination –
to the post dawn a moon walk,
where the clouds wane with the air
slowly my breath tick with time
as the night gave me no lull.
It was a silent cool night;
Best time to pour one’s heart out.
Everybody was asleep,
I came out to count the stars.
The stars smiled and waved at me .
I was hugged with lots of joy.
After the long sunny day
Blue to Black ,darkness switches
Oh peace! Says the exhausted
Velvet black with starry light
Hiding flaws of every man
Making evil seem so right .
In the absence of light, Night
The season of wickedness
When foes go around planting-
Thorns amidst the fruitful plants
While the worn-out souls are at_
rest, after each day’s toiling
Convenient hours for evil,
Dangerous hour at jungle.
Pleasant moment for movement_
By unseen spirit like flies.
Happy are they in darkness;
For they roam without hinderance.
When blanket shrouded the day
Pitching the land in darkness
The moon shall rise from her nap
And sojourn the earth on course
Man’s failure buried in sweat
Also rising to torment his soul
The darkness clouded the sky
Witches crafting their new preys
Living fleshes getting burnt
In silence, their meats was served
Living dead breed the dark smokes
In darkness, their music sounds.
