African Evening - Poem by Kctony Xtopher Nkwocha

Quasi dull clouded sky
with humming melodies.
Singing children,
Olds knocking, inhaling and sneezing.
Mothers preparing for intestines
emitting aroma of nature.
No one ‘s afraid of nothing,
calmness and serenity hover.
No blaring noise nor
intimidating illumination
to contest with nature.
All left, as it was,
yes, as it was in Eden.
