Viii. Drift - Poem by Igwe Kalu

The sun sets it shining
In fine orange oil
Drawn from inside beneath

The sun sets it blazing
Dark mounds and fine talc
Dispersed underneath remains

Then the grey rises
And a fine black lifts
From the mass left to smolder

The grey drifts into the eye
The black upon fine panes, would rest
- And yield to fingers against it.

    Igwe, the imagery is quite sparkling. The flow is relaxed and made it easy to read from top to bottom. Top marks my friend. Thanks for sharing it.
