Tradition: The African beer

But there is one taste that Africa is known for,  This natural liquid drawn from the palm Sweet as the taste of sleep after a hard days labor Whitish, an admired mess for the tired old and young Mmanya, the older men’s African honey The drink for all, Natures perfect brew Now we drink to […]

Musing:  Stressful Days

1 Stressful days take away the joy in my evening meals With back aches and a weakened body I struggle to feed When the day is spent and my thoughts long for my needs,  The stress will then set in; feverish and broken feelings 2 Before this noon, I have had some tea and milk […]

The Sea 

#i The soft waves wash those shores,  Flying fishing birds, cry up in the skies And dancing algae surfed the waters All defining the exotic blues visible #ii But what do we know about the depths,  What is beyond the sands of the beach?  For when the sun shine, all glittered But the waters danced […]

Musing: Observing you

I look upon your face, it shone in the night moon light In the darkness, where many bodies shuffled about Dancing, drinking, talking, calling, shouting, but I only heard you But will you let this light you bring shine in my heart, will you?  The fine curve of your pouting mouth make me weak When […]
