Ojinwayo: Ochie Dike Mama!

By Nwachukwu Egbunike

This cord
eternal
maternal

Ties the loop
to the base
to the root

This bond
breaks space
makes peace

The firmament
arrayed in grace
fades in littleness

For angels
stare with awe
so deep a love

For those eyes
sees into the heart
bores into the being

For her love
so unrepentant
admits no shame
