Close Your Eyes And Open Your Dreams - Poem by Oduro Bright Amoh
Weary lover with heavy eyes, call it a night.
Your sleepy smiles fade on your sleepy cheeks.
Close your eyes and open your dreams.
A silent slumber awakens the imagination with its noise.
Your lover is a pricked rose
Bleeding beauty with a sigh and a sob.
Her tears are dews
Drenching the earth to a flower's health.
What buds blossom from her prickly rose?
What butterfly with rainbows as clothes
Flaps her radiant wings nearby?
Your lover is a wild diamond
The whips of titanium have tamed to shape.
The great bald eagle flies above, watches below.
Your lover is down below.
Fair Eagle! Perch on a mountain
And contemplate the brilliant serene scene
Somewhere a bull recalls her dreary day and chews the cud.
Who cares! Bulls will chew the cud
Awaken to your dreams.
Your lover lies beside you.
Awaken to the morn.
She is gone.
