Poetry: Love by Abiodun Promise


Together we’ll scare the dark away and watch the sun rise
from that horizon
beyond that garden
like a smile that found home on a maiden’s face
like this smile I smile now when I see you laugh
like you always do
through your teeth that is
white like this one
and that white, I mean the
coming from that horizon
with the ray sprayed
upon this aray
of flowers.
They don’t know anyway
but we see them,
don’t we?
So we now
may play
the ray
the way
the children
always did.. Pray
the rain
will fall
