Gbenga Adeoba Starlight Agbowo

I am furling like arcs of tendrils unknown.

Perhaps it is the rhythm wafting from your country;

or the way of waters, how they hold flotsams

in their wake, in grips weighed in ripples.

Only that there is no water here anymore

and day too has strayed into a dark room.

I think now of the incandescence

of your eyes, their fidelity, the tender pull

of this sheen offering a look into the years

beyond and their promise of rain.

Tonight, Lagos is shrouded in a shawl

of half-light; time and the dark limiting

the variance of a promenade or the cavorting

of lovers. Yet we will dance to the skies,

Itunu, knowing the stars would witness, yet again,

to our oneness with their continent of songs.
