DRUM BEATS OF THE SAHARA

art-179

I hear the sounds of the morning
The sun has already peaked from clouds
It is a land filled with expectations
Africa my motherland
Born out of determination
Created from experience
By our ancestors who lived before us
As the skies turn blue then white
I look at the horizon
See futures that we yearn for
Happiness that is sometimes fleeting
We all want a hope that stays
Deserts call for their thirst
As life begins from a hatched egg
I dream of a better life ahead
Life made to be lived to the fullest
I watch the sun descend the horizon
Dances split the stillness of the air
As night approaches
I hear drum beats
In the middle of the Sahara desert
Life begins anew
Children are born
Mothers celebrate life
Africa my best life yet lived
On a land that never sleeps
Refreshed by its Spring waters
Comforted by its diamonds in the soil
Love made in the African pot
Brewed into expectant hearts

HER PEARLS HER ONLY POSSESSION 11

coupledancing

She stood on the river’s edge
Watching as her pearls slowly disappeared into the depth of the cold water
It felt freeing
Yet terrifying at the same time
Feeling the soft breeze sooth her jaw
Memories she would wish to forget
Love was a lie
Everything within her resolved never to give in
She would be strong again
Never to leave her heart out in the open
Watching the water ripple
Told her time had passed to stop mourning
Slowly she walked away from the river’s edge

Nightly owls have quited down
Wind softly whispering its song
Moon high above the dark skies
Stars will not stop singing
Here you are in full delight
Here i am in magnificent joy
We have come to dance
Music is in our hearts
Ears listen to the rhythms
Slowly we embody special sentences
You speak of tongues foreign
Lips bound to sweet words

DAME OF THE NIGHT

She danced seductively to a slow song
intertwining on the pole like a vine
A snake slithering around a tree stump
She had mastered her craft
Knew the pole like the back of her hand
Dancing around it
Sliding down its height

ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS DANCE

Our eyes met in an instance from afar
You had that look that called out to me
Biting my tongue to stop a giggle
Staring quietly at your face
Questions rendered answer-less
Fires lit up then drizzled with water
A heart beat roaring like a lion
Should i fall behind
