A Barren Harmattan

Author • Steve Ogah

I am searching for you

In the expanse of this star-infested sky

Searching for that face that holds the ace

I’m seated here, alone, at home

Longing for your voice, your face

In the barrenness of this harmattan season

But will you ever come back to me

When the New Year breaks with new rains

Was that not the promise you left in the air that night?
