there are ways ~by Tukur Loba Ridwan


 

 

there are ways

there are ways
to speak English
beyond the lexis of grammar
and structures of tenses.
ask from figures of speech,
they would show you the way,
with their left hands,
to their father’s house.
if you are allowed into his household,
open your five senses
to the animation that displays
in your presence.
use your sixth sense
to induce your observations
into a page like science.
write them in lines: rhythm,
like the whispers of winds
in cadences of candor.
let your seventh sense
deduce poetry when you
spell the beauty of your handiwork
out in their lyrical order.
