Treasure Island

Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

And There is Light

At the start it was all darkness
A thickly deep sooty blackness
A latent filled Prowess-
Hovered over the emptiness
The emptiness of the universe’s expansiveness
The intangible emptiness of man’s livingness
A deep powerful voice growled with greatness
And there was light of a good brightness
And there is light of a perfect brightness
That illuminated the universe at every point of its deepness
That illuminates the intangible emptiness of man’s livingness at every point of its depthness
Shinning to chase away the cobwebs of sinness
And imparting every quantum of His gloriousness
So that man’s livingness may partake of His holiness
And thus the light into you shines in its steadiness
Inviting you to dwell in that glory land of eternal blissfulness

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
