Letter To My Art -By- Ogechi Precious Francis
Ogechi Precious Francis🔔
An undergraduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) studying English and Literature.
Ogechi is a young lady who had an intimate relationship with poetry, but along the line, the passion and love in the relationship was lost somewhere in the high weeds that grew between life and time.
Gratefully, beyond all odds- the lost is now found, as Ogechi and Poetry are now back together. Her love, passion and muse (for not just poetry but writing in general) keep burning, never to get cold again. 🔥🔥
Today on Express~Shun from the very depth of her heart, Ogechi writes a
Letter To Her Art~~~Here’s the beautifully written piece~
I had it all worked out,
My vibrant pen
Ever responsive note pad
Where did it all go to?
How can i think i could do without you
You the brain behind the …….
The eyes i see through
You write faster than my head,
I’d think of a thousand things undone without you
I had you all burning up like fire with no match
Wood without smoke
The world would be nothing without you
You are the life penned down
You express words unspoken loudly
In the hearts of your lovers
I’d never leave you again
My Dear Art.
This week we have an extra piece to share (by the same author)
~U N T I T L E D
TO avoid the pressure of youthful age
And savour the sweetness of creation,
In the image and likeness of an eternal king
I whirl in my bubbling gown
Laughter stricken my heart ,
As i stare at nature’s best
So engrossed in myself
I disengage/forget the bitterness of earthquake
The unorthodox craving of sickness
Disheartening beauty of break up
I take all the time to love myself.♥
Indeed! The muse is back!
Keep writing dear!!
We look forward to seeing you leave a positive mark on the shores of this literary field.
