Darkness - Poem by Ejalonibu Abraham

Sun turned to darkness, moon to blood,
Sun climbed into the sky and first star flamed above,
Flapped away into the blackness.
Hark to the voice of nature crying
Loud and strong visible sound of waves,
Thick smoke swirled to the night
And drifted across the sky.
Hissing, crackling and sparking in dark
Came like a ghost though the night mist,
Moon fire fizzed, spat in a final flurry.

Beautiful colourful flower flies in day dies in dine
Dark eyes sparkled under a sweep of shining dark
Deep dam of darkness owl.
Fear of dark ale somewhere in the shadow
The black side of the moon shows it power
Flash tiny sparks of light as winds fanning flame.
Darkness mount up it wings as eagle
Regal power gave fearful courage to duck and darke in their cage,
Thunder strike harder and curled round the dry twigs.
Darkness display it beauty in the face of human.
