Day 22. NaPoWriMo- Celebrate Poetry, All Month Long!
Poem: Fare thee well, sister!
(In loving memory of OluwaTosin Adepegba, RIP)
Memories of youth adorned in her innocence
Juxtaposed with a jarring reality that makes no sense
Lost in childhood dreams, we recall images so familiar
Of visions and scents of Zinnia and Bougainvillea
Colours of spring, rains of laughter and pain now merge
As we gather in mourning and compose a heartfelt dirge
