IN THE UNBROKEN MOONLIGHT (A Poem) by Hyginus Ekwuazi

English: Moonlight becomes you

In the unbroken moonlight
on the Plateau:

all the pains I’ve secreted away
in the deep hiding places of my heart

they crawl out,
these hidden pains like  insects
from underneath these  stones
that dot the Plateau

slowly, from deep within
the tears come
but the abressive winds
dry them up…

..in the unbroken moonlight
of this Plateau

I weep, silently,
for the days and the peace
that are no more.

 

(in Jos, after reading Su’eddie Vershima Agema’s ‘Dawning to light’)
