Collins Aiterebhe

Biography: ...I recall the pernicious vent of inanity, an attorney of songs; a kiss of imaginative empathy that dwells occasionally in artistic isolation!

ELERGY TO JOHN PEPPER CLARK

Night rain thundered endlessly
Out of the tower of faith
Beneath darkness and light
You dropped it on my lap
Your pen yet full with ink
And reluctantly, it fell to the ground

Ozidi saga the wild wind
Gathers cloud
To stand the wives' revolt
We left akimbo
And pleaded your star to stay
But in the early of the morning
Mbari the sun drifted west

The raft rift apart
The masquerade with long face
Danced the song of a goat
Streamside exchanged
And the priestess of Abiku
Sprang like a reed in the tide

It was all too late
The boat has set sail
And the other Clark 
While now standing in
Announced: Bekederemo of kiagbodo
With a decade of tongues
Has gone to see the casualties

Like Mandela 
Bright rainbows
Shall bestride your head
Like a fallen soldier
Tall angels shall relief you
At the gate of yellow reed
You have lived and died a man!

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
