*Prof Akinwunmi Isola*

Flowers were born
of different mothers
on the same tree.
They lived and shone;
some by the right,
others hung at left.

But there was One…

Through the July rains,
to the brown harmattan seasons,
this cherished flower lived
for 84 years of creativity
waiting for the autumn
before it fades away.
We still want it on the tree!
the tree of playwright!
The Yorubarian spear.
We saw his dahlia.
Its leaving
but it blossom’s
still raining.

…………………..
And a writer left the realm.
Akinwunmi Isola.
_Your second life lives on._
