Treasure Island

(12th Febuary,1988 / Onitsha)


On a Night dark and lonely
Possessed by fierce demons only,
Appeared a gem on heavens door.
So I saw and stopped, and stopped and saw;
Pearl-like gem upon heaven's neck.
Such a beauty adores the gloomy neck.
On a lonely night, haunted by sharp claws,
by hostile peace and by silent wars.

[Hata Bildir]
