Suffix and prefix

The wind has blown,

The tree now leaves us.

Our body is cold,

The fire now eat us.

Come back to us and back our front,

Come back and show to us your white and black.


We’ve heard enough;

Enough of the screeching sound of affix,

Our eyes most be clear soon a must,

Cleared like the sparkling crystal-line of axes.

Come back to us and front our back,

Come back and show to us your black and white.


Hours of wickedness noun, Turned to weak-end-less now.

Evenings of night, may turn to light verb-noun,

Come now and let our nights night lite,

And let our light light ninth.


Come back to us and back our front,

Come back and show to us your white and black.


I plead on you;

To hearken to this harmonious susurrations,

Hearken now to keep us bound to each other,

Like the coalesce bound of morphemes.

About Author

I am Olagunju Olayemi Joshua, a young entrepreneur, poet and artist who always see an angle in a circle and a circle in a TRY-angle. The focus of all posts here is on of literature – what it is, and why it has the ability to profoundly influence and affect the lives of so many Viewers. Literature has impacted my life in countless ways. As I’ve grown older, stories written by individuals long dead (but not forgotten) have stimulated my interest in history and many other subjects, while simultaneously influencing my personal development along the way. Literature is powerful and has the ability to shape who we become throughout our lives. It certainly has shaped the person I’ve become. i have developed the habit of preaching what literature entails with my writ-ups and i have the mindset of spreading the beauty of art and literature. Art works and all written literary contents are seen as light that is lighted with thee purpose of building a better society where everyone will have a moral understanding of what literature entails. My hopes and dreams; That it becomes a place for sharing everyday encounters which will be of help to humanity.
