Life does not have to stutter no more

Life does not have to stutter no more

Aremu Adams Adebisi

You see how the aging smile
after the fleeting chasm of silence,/span>
and you wish upon your night/span>
a star that won’t disrupt the moonbeam.

You see how birds sing sonorously
and your eyes tread bare in your mind;/span>
you breathe in mists to expel sunrays,/span>
you wear the days on your feet.

The river splashes in fullness,
you trace some down the side of a cliff,/span>
while some lap at shore/span>
to wash the bank anew.

Then a brittle boy laughs right in your face
with all his contagious innocence;/span>
you wish to smooth your scars with each beam/span>
for all is beginning to hold right meanings.

So, cramped wings leave the nest in your eyes,
a broken ship waterlogged by the storm/span>
made it to the shore.

So, yellow-stained leaves aid in fruits bearing,
an air stifled in a corked bottle
descends in whirls down the lowland.
