WALLS FROM RUINS
Look up above the sky and see what caused
the cracks of what makes you shiver.
Look closely at the wind & see the breakage
that sets your soul free & with it you
come to know that when a clarion sings through
the air, the cruces of antelopes seem not to
be at rest & that when Rome is on fire, the
hair of a hermit becomes a home for demons,
but after the destruction, walls would certainly
be built from the ruins.
Bio: Nwaoha Chibuzor Anthony is a Nigerian poet who lives in Orlu, a sleepy city in the Eastern part of Nigeria.
