My Beautiful Nonso

Nonso… How so? Our love – a mammoth colossus Now laid waste in tha valley’s low Shattered glass on plastered floor Sweet dreams gone with the night Like hidden shadows Nonso… Oh Nonso Our love – a mammoth colossus Now a lethargic dance to distant drumbeats Like dying evening roses Without passion without glow Like broken petals on the wind "This poem is dedicated to all Igbo beauties I have been honored to meet and perhaps love at different points in my life- Africa is Beautiful and Igbo is golden."
