You and spirit

At the penultimate moment of that reality,
She smiled to the feeling that was a little fabled,
She sat midst the green grass that inspired a sense of safety,
Although safety has always been an illusion of any movement

Beyond her, the tall grass had faded into a color of sunshine,
Life had rained an existential lark on her this time,
This very moment was proving to be benign,
And she closed her eyes wishing to live it and feel it

But from deep within she knew something unseen waited,
She averted the temptation of being at an impasse,
Her loyal shadow was her companion and greatest confidant,
It was besides her accompanying her with every twist and turn

The sun emanated a strong brandy from the sky’s distillery,
The blades of light ornamented the strikingly shaped clouds,
And she submitted to this trance that only mattered,
For it always came with a kiss of hello and a kiss of goodbye…

  1. Great piece of work. Your choice of words is mesmerizing, “The sun emanated a strong brandy from the sky’s distillery,
    The blades of light ornamented the strikingly shaped clouds,….”
    Love every bit of it.
    The legacy of Chinua Achebe lives on.
