Nkwachukwu Ogbuagu

Piano for the Deluge

Soft on the wings of the raven,
Loud on the beak of the dove -
The harmony of rain.

The decibel atop the wanton grey waves
Rebukes loudly, the soul of the deluge
To sound the death knell on the confrontation
Of waters.

Sleeping Seas

Tumultuous clouds above keep vigil
On a cold, grey night, mourning the
Killing of visible stars...

Soot-darkness veils the brows of the
Skies in one orgy of perfidy, transmuting
The agelessness of heaven into a

Yolk of newness, fragile and tendril-tender.
Arrogant terns weave mock baskets for
Tears of heaven, plucked from the burning

Eyes of disconsolate clouds, mourning
This siege, the holocaust...
Underneath this hostile breath,

Moon rays crown the gaudy rim of seas
Down under, resplendent in their dreamy
Somnolent essence only.

A weaverbird's contralto, in one
gale-sweep, lays bare the lower balustrade

shoots the long throat of the clarinet...

O'classicals, on wings
ye come;
leaf cusps and petal ears -
classicals, swearing oaths of
mellifluous assembly...

Calm rhythms hasten to the
ears of Beethoven -
summon him for a serenade,
lest the dark shelter of a
decrepit day strips this solitude.

Deluge Aftermath

Deluge aftermath
lies on a pyre of laughter -
sardonic laughter -
holocryptic in its litter of
charms and pangs of incence.

Deluge aftermath
swears oaths of allegiance to
waning day, refraining from
tales of calm and religious prescience;
it recalls the aftermath of the
Deluge of Noah.

Deluge aftermath
rests with inveterate slumber
earned in the cataract of
puissant vices upon lonesome,
green artifacts of a laconic culture.

Deluge aftermath
