Search for meaning

By: King Buohien Ediare

The cloud amassed ingredients
for the funeral of the day.
First, it was bright
we were masters of the day.
Later dusk
we started returning to our roots.

Now as
black as beneath the grave!
Those behind time stumble and trudge
in the black cloud
in a bid to reach home.

The nocturnal species saturated the atmosphere-
their display, their songs:
The Crickets,
The Owls,
The Fireflies
and many more
all underneath the canopy of the Moon and Stars.

What a great dichotomy of nature
Justice only lies with the creator!
