rresistible woman~by Prince Ibekwe



irresistible woman

Image may contain: 1 person, smiling

an iroko with roots channelled to the sea
she stands firm in the midst of turmoil and turbulence
in the desert of scarce herbs
she toils day and night to put bread on the table
as merchant’s of old
doesn’t mind going far in search of meat
she blesses the soil and enriches the ground
beneath her feet
like the candle
she lit our way with light
showing the way in darkness
with spindle she weaves silk
for her children and her kinfolks
sing her praise
she protects her household
they never feel the cold of the night
her lips are anointed with oils of peace and grace
she is the irresistible woman!

Sept 2018.
