Omen Songs (Poem)


Omen Songs

I no longer speak
half-God but I can still dream
of firefly lanterns

cricket serenades
bull frog brigades bellowing
cicada warnings

with each passing tick
tock tick tock the truth tells time
in translations lost

I understand still
yearnings sung across lessons
marking aged landscapes

because God speak dwells
inside life come full circle
native tongue regained
