Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

A lonely bright white cloud

All the owls have flown up and gone;
the owls of evil that threatened;
My connection, your intimacy and our love,
With the rock to severe.
They have flown away with the storms;
that come with destructive torrents
away to nothingness

A lonely bright white cloud floats leisurely by.
We never tire of looking at each other -
Only the Rocky Mountain and I and you and all of us
Looking at each other, smiling intimately
His an appreciating glance, mine and yours a thankful one,
Only Jesus and I
Only Jesus and you
Only Jesus and all of us
The Rock that withstands the storms for us

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
