THE INTRUDER by Ewuola Damilola Michael

I saw the mist kissing the mountains Stroking it gently with soft airy hands Whispering tales of love As the envious sun intruded. Reluctant to wake: The trees sweat—cold sweat Reminiscing the night that hurried away When it heard the footsteps of dawn Galloping from the east.

(H)EART(H) OF DARKNESS

What a wonderful world! A beautiful composite of opposites: Behold nature in her beauty And man in his foolery Ravaging everywhere like a colossus; His heart, dangerously obnoxious Who can understand the pit? Heart of darkness! Earth of blessedness! What a wonderful world! Written by: Oladipo Gbenro Eyitayo Edited by: Kukogho Iruesiri Samson
