Summer is Here

Two days ago it was winter
Chilly winds blew in the freezing rain
Clouds hung leaden as if to fall
Clinging to the ground in deep disdain
Today, the Sun shines brightly and
The sky is a deep azure blue
Its now summer apparently
Flowers have sprung as if on cue
Mother nature is keeping us guessing
And with our heads she is a messing
Give the Goddess our silent blessing
Unpredictably wild is she
Constantly beguiling me
Reveling in her deity

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.
