MALCOLM FABIYI

 

When Trees Bald

 

He fought through his winter, holding onto

Life through rasping cough and numbing pain

Till spring came with an airy bloom

And a sweet whisper of calming songs

Now autumn beckons with steady hands, to

Where leaves fall, trees bald, and lights

Go out, like torches in the rain.

 

 

With this Kwansaba, Fabiyi won the Sentinel Poetry Bar Challenge October 2005 
on the theme of ‘Terminal Illness’.
