A tribute to Kika

The dust has forever

Settled

Even in the prime

Time

 

When blossom the

Flower

And glowing the

Sun…

 

Testimonies

Un-defiled

A young lip

Traversing a Bosom

Path

 

Leaping out

The universe

The toddling

Steam

Evaporating

 

Like the

Cloud

After the

Rain

 

When her salt

About to

Savour

Her bees

About to

Comb

 

And her ray of

Light about to

Beam and illuminate

Her generation!

 

Tears of families

And folks

Rolling down

The cheeks have

Formed an ocean

At the jaw

 

Dropping like

Ice

 

Yet not metabolic

Enough

To resurrect

 

Dust; we were formed

Dust; we will form

Kika; where art thou?

Your dust has

Forever soared unto

The Bosom of

The Lamb

 

Without wrinkle

Or blemish

 

A fulfilment of

The inevitable

Close of the

Age!

 

Kika; our dearest

Great!

Adieu! Adieu!!

NB: It is pertinent to note that I have never met Kika Ebiye-Onyibe here on earth but surely we will meet in the Bosom of Christ someday (not soon). But a student; Yemisi AJE-OJO who I taught sometimes in Nigeria (now based in UK) wrote something inspiring about her as they were friends. So, I wrote this tribute for our dearest Great Kika. RIP! Yemisi please, accept my condolence.
