She Is Woman

The banging sounds of the pistol against the mortar
The shriekings of the offspring for water
"Folake, come and see your daughter"
The resting place of them all, on her shoulder
Different faces the world has showed-her
Her eyes light up the internal glow of her lover
His sole source of gaiety
In the endless outburst of joy for the little things
In the beautiful sight of her clothed in kaftan
In the kputukputu sound of from her pot of banga soup on fire
In the soothing effect of her words
She is WOMAN
The strength of a tiger
The swiftness of a cheetah
The meekness of a horse
The wisdom of a dolphin
A privilege to have koinonia with her essence
Mind-boggling wisdom, ayond common sense
She is WOMAN
