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

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
