TALES BY NIGHT (a poem by Yugo Gabriel Egboluche)

magic butterfly take off from glass jar

Read Time:33 Second
Stare into the night, so you’d
see the moon, swimming thru
buoyant ocean of clouds. Stare,
so you'd perceive from its trail,
a desert of astounding grandeur
Steer thru the night, so you'd
find, mortal shadows hide oddly
behind light beams. Steer, so
you'd see in subtle luminescence,
a parody of impeccable earthlings
Stir the night, so you’d
summon the wisdom
of spent sires.  Stir so
you’d  learn from counsel,
a secret hidden from babes
Stay the night, so you too
would hear the muse whispers,
in the silence of dusk. Stay, so
you'd receive in its glorious wake,
a lavish bouquet of fresh dreams
