COMMUNION By Nwandu Victory Edmavino

Written by Editor

Silence broke the cool of the evening
As I recounted a tale:
My story of initiation
Into a fraternity

It was twilight’s morning
When they came, speaking words;
Turns of phrases which swept me off.
They let me have their
orientation
And I followed them to the temple

We tarried that night
Held hands in solemnity
And communed with the powers that be
We died in flesh and spirit
The sensation of the arena
Aroused my feelings

Then there was a flaming touch
That melted my soul.
I began blurting the language
The coded language of the gods
Meant for the initiated

The language that took me to trinity
Where we fellowship with immortality
The realms which were meant for the communicants
Of the fraternity

This communion that took no pain in me
This Communion left no scars on my body
It was the Communion of the saints and
The fraternity of divinity I belong
It was my choice to join the brotherhood
The brotherhood of eternity
