The Beauty Of The Dark

Poem By ifedayo oshin

Just now the sun is set
Leaving behind a blank cloud
Then another scene evolves
Alerting the nocturnal world
To the clarion call
A world gloomily and dimly lit
For the brightness of albino’s lens
And the sharpness of bats’ and rabbits’ sight
And a host of nocturnal beings’ activities
Then, also signals the concert
Of the croaky and coarse ones
Down in the muddy arena

And without the dark beauty
Giving our world a spreadsheet
That parades array of stars
The sky playing host to million of
Galaxy guests from the Milky Way
Which cast men spellbound
With their splendor and grace
That lit up our world abright and aglow
And give us a view
That of the upper storey
Whispering wordlessly
Of the little wonders of creation.______

take a look at the boldness of the sun
behold the brightness of the stars
they hold no grudges

If the sun shines
Vicious that the hands could hold its heat
If the wind whirls and wails
Turbulent, with fierceness of rushing water

Until the philosophy
That holds one up
And the other down
Is finally discredited

The Wedding Of The Millenium

the groom,
the sun, deified the time
and denied the dark its peak,
shimmering in his faded orange apparel
