Eyitemi Egwuenu

  Will it hold
  My spirit
  As it climbs?
  My soul
  As it rides this curl
  Of smoke that creeps up the thatch?

  Pure,rainwashed
  Prodding the murk
  Probing Erebus,
  Sowing light.

  Vaulted by this rhapsody
  A web of notes
  Strong within me
  Against the Wind.
  
  Will it
  Hold my Spirit,
  Will it
  My Soul?

  As visions lie
  Cremated,
  Wombed by impotent
  Ash.
  Longings withering
  In the stale breath of years
  As I lay snared
  By dreams unlived.

  Will these
  Offsprings crumble too,
  A spectre
  Of bygone years?
  Will the
  Footprints grow sunbaked
  With no sprout of green?

  Therein
  Is the dream that strains,
  The stealth
  That stumbles in...unbidden,
  To pull
  The silent strings,
  To birth the notes,to
  Rapture me
