At the penultimate moment of that reality,
The dead hollow tree inspired a little fabled feeling,
They stood midst the green grass that inspired a sense of safety,
Although safety has always been an illusion of any movement

Beyond them, the tall grass had faded into a color of sunshine,
Life had rained an existential lark on them this time,
This very moment was proving to be benign,
And they closed their eyes living it and feeling it

But deep within they knew something unseen waited,
They averted the temptation of being at an impasse,
Loyal shadows were their companions and greatest confidants,
They were besides them accompanying them 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 they 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.
