Daylight 1

Poem By uche peter umez

That ageless bulb brightens the sand-cast sky

with blazing

eyes of sapphire

above clouds of expansive bust

in down of pearl

the crackling crows of the cock

peel off the heavy strips of sleep

from my lazy senses


the dragging politics of another day.

'The heavy strips of sleep' - nice image. Good poem.
I like very much the let-down at the end, after the flowery opening. (I think that's what Adam liked too)
