GREEN LIGHT CANDLE by Ray Ndebi

AND WHAT OF IT, IF THUS YOU LAID? by Oyin Oludipe

AND WHAT OF IT, IF THUS YOU LAID? For Albert Jungers, poet and teacher And what of it, if thus you laid? Your worlds yet danced, for so did they Whose naked lode yours sagely warms And what of it, if thus you laid? And dared the storm where tart it thrums Reap I a...

DEFYING GRAVITY by ‘Bukola Ibirogba

DEFYING GRAVITY by ‘Bukola Ibirogba

NIGERIA, HOW FAR? by Kanyinsola Olorunnisola

NIGERIA, HOW FAR? Nigeria, when did your beauty, Doused in rarity and clement grace, A feast to the captured eyes of suitors, A muse to the enthused voices of minstrels, Become the protagonist of tales told About remnants in the bowels of yesterday? How did your wild...
