Rain - Poem by Joseph Oladehinde Ibikunle

Lightning precedes the thunder
The cloud goes dark
And the vapour creeps asunder
The earth breezed and black.

The plant of the farm
Under the authority of the storm
The tree unrest - uncalm
Swinging their fingers in various form.

The angry thunder's bellow
Market women in hasty confusion
Our children screaming below
Rain is coming in quick diffusion.

Now it finally cascades
As it clatters in cacophony
Upon all roofs in the villages
Like songs of sonorous symphony.
