What better way is there to celebrate Worker’s Day than giving you, the Most Special Worker of the Year, a food for thought in the form of a book by WALE OWOEYE, the mystic poet from the heart of the Sahara titled WHAT WAS GOD THINKING?

Yes, WHAT WAS GOD THINKING? when He made the universe. Wouldn’t you like to know? For those curious about the knowledge of Creation as contained in Genesis 1, Wale Owoeye poetically explored the Divine Mind as the foundations of the universe were laid, bringing a post modern dimension to an atavistic act of light years ago.

What do I like about the book, you’d ask me. Well, for one, its brevity. I love the way the poet was able to capture the mystery of Creation in modern language, using words that resonated and imageries that evoked the awesome power of God in creating the universe.

Again, I love the general design of the book. The outlay is avant garde and interactive, bringing magic to the reading experience. The general intention of the book as a champion of CLIMATE CHANGE also endeared the book to me. It is a classic that will be studied for a long time to come.

Have you ever wondered on the Acts of Creation? If you have then this book is for you. Mystical in an understandable way and very original, enjoy this short excerpt:

And God said: “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth”



Galaxies spread out

Weightless and boundless

Suspended in space

On unseen axis

From within and without

A forever rolling ball

Among them

Among these floating orbs

You will find me

Twinkling in the eons

A band of lights

Travelling along the orbits

Once I was a satellite

Reflected from a golden stone

But now

I am a star

With a fate of my own

And a name

Get yours on
