Snow Day!

Walking in the mid of afternoon

Crowded children come together

Snow day!

The graceful falling of the impeccable

Snowflakes bind like piles of the virgin

Shed Persian like rug touch of the surface

In the backyard of the crowded

West side brick layered houses

There are days like these

Where still, as animals, we put aside

Our immaturity and play like the infants we are

And the only soundtrack plays is the natural brethren breeze

And underlying are echoes of whispers between the trees

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.
