Whisper of Wisdom

She sought for the 
sunshine of yesterday
to wipe the cascading tears 
of today,
alas, all she got was a 
shadow of grey
trailing her tears like an 
enslaved prey.

The lores of her past 
clouded the skies,
all she is left with are 
legacies of lies,
fermented fantasy 
immersed in iniquity,
no dust and ashes in sight 
as indemnity.

Her nude heart drips like 
icycles of autumn,
no where to be found like 
sparkles of gloom,
the sun she sought for 
came back in a trance,
reality resumes with drops 
of disturbance.

The whispers of wishes 
stormed her soul,
echoes of nothingness 
roamed in her world,
yesterday and today met at 
the end of never,
no faith to fratenize, she 
played the fool!

I peeped into the valley of 
dry bones,
and found flesh and blood 
eyes that would not see 
and ears that are 
deaf to the whistles of 
wisdom and freedom.
(c) 2012.
Adeleke Adeite.
