Poetry Collaboration by Christina Chin (Malaysia) & Uchechukwu Onyedikam (Nigeria)


casts a love spell

night stroll

the moonlight's shine

hides my shadow

day's break

the sun draws nearer

we become


to the phone



amid cool waves


step by step

a butterfly

moon blackout

the twelve o'clock folktales 

underneath the baobab tree

send thrills and chills

of witching hour


of a star… 

cracked dawn

a virgin mary's birth

of a child


car battery 

at midnight

the day before

only to die again

the old


vulture appears 

on the pathway

a green dragon's 



home we go

aged dream

no use worrying

despite hardships 

wet feelings

of the night rain

street sweeper with a stranger

making conversations 

in sign language 

on the rail

a newly wed couple —

akin to 

two white pigeons

with a lot in common
