We are all words, in our entirety. Man was marked by it from inception, at the outset of things, and it in-turn measures his life to the very end. There are no limitations to the functionality of words: poetry, prose, drama or even art. The artistry and mastery, thoughts and imagination of words are subject to writers; but how to obtain these words, its taste and texture, is left to the readers.
Dear readers, Lunaris Review’s Issue 7 is a tasteful compendium of art for you. It habours Home by Covenant Chimnonso who expresses: “I am a failed artist trying…to tell the story of the colour in his home”. The post-colonial disillusionment of governance in most African countries, very disappointing, is projected in The Ballot by Wafula p’khisa. You cannot resist the wordplays, metaphors and enigma in the works of Ross Stager and Akor Emmanuel Oche. Abayomi Ogunniyi gives a stimulating description of Ibadan as “The art of clay painted in the mind of solitude…” Tchilaah Haitan offers you a tasteful art of a rural landscape punctured by people. There are even more to taste in works of C.J Anderson-Wu, Francis Dobbs, Robert Ebinabo Fortune, Pijush Kanti Deb and others.
Dear reader, this issue is loaded with insightful and marvellous works for you.
We are grateful to the contributors for entrusting their works to us. Thanks to you, readers, for without you, there will be no Lunaris Review. We will always give you the best. Thanks.
