Poetry Play #29

Samuel Oluwatobi Olatunji and Ope Tokun


                Come, let me initiate you

                Let me instruct you on how to make illustrations with ink


                Where the words are painted in black on a white mantle as each letter sinks

                My mind goes on a roll

                It perched at hidden words

                And gives it light and a soul

                Then breathes with beaming light


                That’s the light of letters

                Make that light last long into the dark web of the world

                And soon you will become an ace of the artwork of alphabet


                Artworks inscribed in sands of times

                Painted in brilliant hues in its glory view nor in hues of shameful shades


                So I ordain you poet

                Painter of pains and pleasures

                Let your letters flow into lines

                Until your poem stands, a present to very person


                As it becomes the thirst that each soul yearns for

                The longing for every hungry mind and it may wisdom be lies


                Let the water of your words quench their thirst

                Let the hungry feed on the hieroglyphics of your poetry.

NB: Poetry Play, a product of Artilogue in partnership with PenAStory, is a game in form of poetic dialogue for every poet on BBM. It is a game of two poets: one drops a line or more, and the other replies, flowing along until one of them gives up, or the poem gets too long. Every poem formed from this game will be published here (penastory.com) every Friday and Saturday. So poets, are you ready to play? If yes, contact Samuel via BBM: 7f5210ec
