Vision by Ariyo Ahmad


I carry the memory of a thousand dream

Like an ocean carrying a sunken ship

Around the cosmos like a blue butterfly

Dancing on a sweet flower arm

Like an hungry fly upon a mighty river

Ready to steal a portion of water and fly

Into the sky with a wide magnitude

Just like a bird with wide wings, flapping high

With a ninetingale voice from the top of a roof

Awakening the slumbering trees and dead streams

Of stream, flowing with a high speed

Fishes and crabs, taking the sweetness of the stream

lines of mind-blowing maiden at the river bank

Fetching a fracture of stream sweetness

I see myself reclining on a memory marble

Visualising the nice nature's gifted gold

Of sweet memories and tender atmosphere

Of a fiery queen with a bright future

On a clad chair with bitter sweet lemon in hand

I shall extract the sweetness of this living moment
