Paradise succumbs to my imagination…

 

 

Lagoon

By Funmi Tofowomo

Paradise succumbs to my imagination
The unforeseen temptation
I see
I hear
What do you know?
The tide turns and turns like a barrel in a lagoon
The ships sailing into the deep sea
Sands blowing by the wayside
Tell me, what do you see?
What is it that you hear?
Is this paradise or just my imagination?
Tell me
I hear
I see
What do you know?
