Elixir, the begetter of a merchant’s fortune
Music of love, an expired tune
Whisky, the comforter of a broken heart
While memories spurn to depart
Actions are slow and quiet
Thoughts unable to kick the bucket
Roses wither alongside smile
A sweet virtue, cursed and defiled
About Ijagun Poetry Journal
Ijagun Poetry Journal is a quarterly journal that provides a platform from which we can tell our own stories in the authenticity of their multiplicity through the poetic medium. We don’t want to hear these stories from our master “griots” alone; we want to hear from those mastering their art, too. Hence, we aim at publishing new and emerging poets. We also welcome the works of established poets in order to encourage the poetic genius of those mastering poetic art. We prize original works that conform to, break or reinvent conventions. Again, we accept reviews and critical essays on poetry. We also accept powerful art works and photographs that make us appreciate the "poetry" in everything.
