The Sun-god at Mount Horeb

Sun-god
sitting still on mount Horeb
amidst the stark clouds,
sweeping towards the swept
open space between trees
and pawing at white and dark fleshy flesh.

Sun-god
your pale, smirky lemon face
like the grapefruit in Ago-Iwoye Market
scribbles dirt patches on my face
and made my throat to swill water
enough to fill up a tank-container.

Oh Sun-god!
I plead,
do not douse us all
from this buzzy day
only ‘dap’ softly softly
into the balmy, cosy night.

About Martins Tomisin

My Name is Martins Tomisin. I'm a talented budding poet from Nigeria. I love painting on paper through the medium of poetry writing... Some of my poems have served as a great muse to some writers in discovering a new stylistic way of writing poetry. Poetry is one of the tastiest outlet I loved most. I have touched souls through my poems, and they enjoyed the beauty that appeals to them. The beauty in it, therefore, is meant to pass message, and readers to unearth the beauty there in.
