IN THE MIND OF A POET By Olaseni Kehinde Precious

Written by Editor

In the mind of a poet stands a house of Gold
Painted with imagery and symbolism
Oh!, this house is as glittering as a star
The house that is an Elephant

There is a stream at the beautiful garden
Coloured with the saliva of pen
Holding pistol and sword with both hands
I could hear the mighty wind speak angrily in an hidden language

In the mind of a poet lives what had lived and lives
The plays that were blind to the eyes but visible to the head
In this house lives Lions that could be seen from within
Where the hearts whose hands were handicapped pick up sticks for the earth to remember their names.
