Big Man

Clouds collide
The Big Man
Upstairs is moving again
Packing his bags
And stomping his feet
Thunder rolls across the land
Rain falls in sheer sheets
Hanging heavy
Pregnant steam
Electricity in motion
Sparking an arc
Lightening issues forth
Flashing an angry stab
Vicious energetic force
The Big Man is angry
In fury, he spits
The elements
Fire and water
Sound and fury
Thundering flashes
Of Godlike rage
The fire of His anger
Soon subsides
Water falls more gently
Washes away the ire
And soon peace returns
Radiant warmth in azure sky
Free of all concerns

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.
