Voice Of Heaven

Voice Of Heaven

You have never heard that voice?

The voice of heaven

 

What is it you call the dribs of rain

On

The

Roof

That

Is

Over

Your head?

 

What is it you call the waft of breeze

that     peels    off         your      ceiling?

 

The melody of pellet drizzles

That remands you for the while it drips?

 

Whose voice is the angry thunder

That crack your eardrum?

 

Okay wait!

Wait until the eyes of heaven weep you a deluge

Wait again until the deluge meets a tsunami

And makes its way into your fortress

Wait until it pays you a visit at night

In the coastal plains of lekki

Wait…

Please wait

For Heaven to speak again.

  3. @writefight I av always loved stuffs that go beyond just putting words together that rhyme…or don’t. However, I av loved more writers who know that beyond putting these words together, there is also the responsibility of arranging them in ways that does something for/to the reader.
