Kodi Azuonye Poems
At first, the dark rain-clouds cast a gloomy spell over the eye of the day,
O love, give me one more chance to mend my broken faith for only your tonic salve can heal our shattered play.
The hills are alive, awake; real are the voices raised by the jaded, stirring trees. Moderately diminishing against the metropolis,
An Evening By The Seashore
The water is dark and silent, reflecting sparks of the night’s fire that bedeck a window of sky. Your voice tonight does not thrill me at all, poet wind.
Palsied dewy touch, knell-swathed- a flawed crust of chrysalis burned into exile.
Lost In Action
One irksome, prosy afternoon devoid of interest, time hanging heavily - to have my stripling fling, I digressed into a bush
O love, give me one more chance
to mend my broken faith
for only your tonic salve
can heal our shattered play.
Compunctions rankle in my breast
for smoldering her virgin love
which like cool April showers
blessed my passion-parched earth.
