Sinking Deep!!!

I tripped
Lest I tripped
With my humming toes
In the sands of the water
Laid at the feet of poetry

I cried
Lest I cried
With my naked voice
In the sands of the water
Laid at the feet of the evening’s sun

I drank
Lest I drank
With my closing mouth
In the sands of the water
Laid at the feet of the dying drain

I scratched
Lest I scratched
With my peeling fingers
In the sands of the water
Laid at the feet of the insect’s teeth

I drowned
Lest I drowned
With my last breath
In the sands of the water
Laid at the feet of the heaven’s eyes

About Michael Ogundele

A writer, ardent reader and lover of nature. fell in love with writing five years back and I've been engraved in her arms ever since. I share my little way of writing poetry and reflections based on Catholic faith and Spirituality on this space. I hope you enjoy reading as we ride the same chariot to the leafy greens. Do follow me and together, let us jump into the ocean of my ink.
