ODE TO RAIN

By Ishola Wasiu Ayodele

 

I,

Cold tears,

Silvery fluids,

Feeding earth.

A gift,

Pure!

 

I,

Bullets,

Stony drops,

From raging skies,

Hitting earth.

Flood’ng it,

Curse!

 

I,

Who make

The tree swing;

Yond lightning strike.

Playing wards,

Mothers,

Call.

 

I,

The guest,

Heavenly.

Drumming thunders,

Humming winds,

M’presence

H’rald

    Ishola the poetic genius is at it yet again! Been awhile we heard from his stead but even at that, I absolutely dig the way he took his pretty lil sweet time, to describe the different aspects of rain and the consequences each has upon the Earth and its inhabitants! A brilliantly concocted piece, well laid out too! Nice! Thanks for sharing Kingsley; it smarts wella! LOL
