where day darkened
and I forgot my memory of remembrance

on the mountain-rill of sorrow
your love lightens my path
before the noisy clouds fall……

to the cabinet planet of poet’s
prime angels of words and versification
with hearty dictionary of your love

my chest became an impregnated cedar
in my heart you are the big moon……
and my verse in hours of silent singing.

*Dedicated to Farida Aliyu
