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!
