POET ON RAMPAGE DAY 10 – RHYTHM OF THE UNIVERSE

The pitapat of the falling raindrops
The ding dong of the tolling bell
The dang! Dang! Of clanging cymbals

The chime chime of the grandfather clock
The gbam! Gboah! Of banging doors
The krik krak of falling summer leaves

The koh koh of the Agogo*
The chirp chirp of the Ibaka*
The whoosh, whoosh of Afefe*

The silence of the wee hours
The voice of the rising day
The sounds of the earth
The rhythm of the universe

Note:(Agogo is a cone shaped metal gong usually struck with another metal.
Ibaka is the Yoruba name for the bird Canary.
