Conception - Poem by Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Hail the energy of Rain!
How mightily have you mated
Soil to bear this green carpet
On the banks of Iyiocha*
Hasten and lay naked,
Wholesome eggs of earth.
Long and strong, the watery spikes drop,
The spermatozoon of Rain, image maker of conception.

*A stream in the poet's village
