Francis Annagu - One Poem


The blue Carutu river
Throbbs, throbbing
Flows, flowing into
Black canvasses of the garage.
The day is full spring in
The scabrous sky of birds,
Egrets winging off up upon hills,
Peaked pointed hill's gaze,
Gazing to clouds of coloured
Rainbow portraiting the orchard;
Rainbow. Painted orchard.

Francis Annagu is published or forthcoming on Galway Review, Potomac Review, Tuck Magazine, Ayiba Magazine, Lunaris Review and others. He lives in Kaduna, Nigeria where he is working on his debut poetry book.
