Poetry

I SAW THE LIGHT By Ahmed Suleiman (Pragmatic)

Written by Bada Yusuf Amoo

I visibly saw the light in the sky,
My friend saw the same light in the sky,
Cascading the cloud hither and thither,
In a pace of not fast style,
As I brushed my morning teeth,
Not slowly but moderately,
My face went up the sky,
Tilting towards the light,
I saw the light.

My mouth was agape,
Looking at mother nature,
Without any admixture,
My teeth was gaggling in the street,
Making me look in awe at the sky,
Beneath the sky is the light,
I have never witnessed in my life,
It was unprecedented,
Not demented,
It ran like welcoming a baby to the world,
The light was not tiny,
It was chubby more than myself,
I saw the light.

As I saw it, my friend saw it,
He looked at it as I looked,
He did not tell me,
But I could read his countenance,
The light was white in colour,
It was delivering a message,
I could not fathom out in my memory,
For running errand in the sky,
My friend was amused,
I was aghast,
I told him,
I saw the light.

No one was familiar with it,
Because it was not from our familial,
That was the light,
As I gobbled the water in my mouth,
It was enticing and surprising.
I saw the first light of the day,
Around 5:40am,
It disappeared later,
Faster to the heaven,
Refusing to wave goodbye to any
Homo sapiens,
Because it was created before me,
I saw the light.
