Climatophosis is a digital poetry expressed in French and English. It’s inspired by the current climate change in the world. In fact, its title is coined from climate and metamorphosis i.e. change of climate. It affects rainfall in the North-Eastern Nigeria. Noticeably, for about two decades ago, it has been raining from May to October with little rainfall but now it’s from June to November with rainfall volumes increased to the extent that new variety of crops are needed to fit the new climate. In this case, Climatophosis is all about who is to be blamed for climate change? –It is the same humanity that refuses to respect the nature. On the other hand, nature is renewing itself because it’s worn-out. This is a call for masses to respect nature and be freed from the consequences of climate change.
