On May 28th - Poem by Rex mayor Ubini

There are days
That walk in one’s brain
They haunt with butterflies in our tummy
or with snails crunched in the shell of a widow.
Each time we have a date
Standing on the ground
where passed on gods and goddesses once stood
Our inner eyes could have their faces and glory
Some of us may tap from their pains and prowess
Just by sitting on the stool where once they sat.

Today is married to eclipse
If you listen closely
You could hear
the cricket voices of Cemetery and phantoms
gossiping my sad soul
Only the caged bird would break the silence
If she who thought her her first song
Have not exit with her thrilling gong.
Who on this day left our lonely crowded earth
To a place where ancestors
are conveyed by the creator
She left us with courage
To fight for our rights and freedom
She left us with words
Words that heal a broken heart
or bend a proud back
She left me with poetic breath
Breathe my pen breathe
Breathe the air of profound words
As I shut my eyes
Holding hands with Maya Angelou
On a poetic coliseun of my mind
Wishing we could have a dance of words
Before the sun falls asleep on May 28th.
