Harmattan Homily

Harmattan Homily

We await the gust of the North-easterlies to smolder us,

soothing balm, our beloved  first  and  only defense


Our feet quiver in anticipation of your cold entry

soon-to- be cracked lips part, only to speak of your imminence


Alas, the wait is in vain for the leaves rustle not in dryness,

the fabled mist is not on the morning list


Where are you, your shiveriness? for our children play on dustless streets

chased not by mothers bearing warmer clothing; weather men wondering whether or not…..


If  indeed this is your season, your continued absence compels us to reason

Ponderous; the rains outside disrupts familiar order and such thoughts,  for time umpteenth!
