The Moment – Ogonna Kanu

Red bombards the waking sky,
Amidst nature’s hue of tye and dye,
I smell the strength of the sun,
Uncertainty forgone.

Teasing with light, spoiling for a fight,
Dares she, the ferocity of the ocean’s might,
But gentle waves swallow her coloured echoes,
And lazily concentrates on fishermen’s canoes.

From where I am, I have touched the eagle in flight
And memory will not erase this sight.
I soften the pace to my destination
And stand too, to listen to this morning’s oration.

It seems time stopped to reflect on heavenly bliss
And was I..? Yes, I was born for this!
