In African fables and tales, it’s believed that people have met with good luck just by greeting strangers Welcome to the beautiful morning of June 1st, 2021. By African tradition, it’s formal to say greetings to anyone encountered on the way. Some cultures consider it taboo not to say greetings to people (especially the aged). […]
Cool waters Rush in peace, Hot noon bath
The humble morning rise from her sleep, Her twin rise from lands of unknown deep Smiling at boroughs, the sun leaves for solitary slumber Going before all; fauna & flora to a place of graceful wonder
Sail bright rays Scramble fair clouds, Dawn your mistress
Tall tree canopies, Sun rays filter Morning their phantom
Night fall dreams A ride through moonshine Home may tell tales
Clouds mock me Yet I touch the sky, I have no wings
Happy hawk surf, King of blue clouds, wind While silence look on Start blogging today.

Stars sing your herald Cold night, crickets quiz In quietness I lay alone Start your blogging experience here.
Galaxies shine, Cloudy night they belong Sea breeze play with waves
Night is falling, I wait on the stars To tell a tale or two
Two snails approach rail tracks Skies are grey Train horns afar
Fast the sun traveled awayHappy birds fly homeWhen evening breeze came
Green things are brown Harmattan made them so Even trees turn mad dancers
Sunlight rays peep through leaves Playful squirrels own the branches Mushrooms sit amused when nuts fall
Airy evening for all tree dwelling fellows Sparrows sing, Robins bass as crickets chirp Two happy lovers sit listening *** Hello everyone. I promised to post more about my hometown. I’m having issues uploading images, so I’ll do that once I’m back to town.
Soft wool, fluffy pillow, starry night Three fellows bidding a shepherd sleep Crickets sing from cracks in the wall
Sun rays, sea breezes; gold and blue fantasies, Twilight muse from clouds when evenings approach Noisy monkeys play beside the raffia palm forest
Even before mists and dews evaporate The green forest was awake, tending to her residents But the cold iron snake will have none of her benevolence
Sunshine, blue skies and approaching tide Brown crabs crawl away, walking sideways Amused egrets follow, escorting their trail
See these sparkle of gold Brew bubbles across the clouds, While they sail away to other lands
This is for you humble castle, beautiful succour and living citadel, You whose roots are soft seats; you who shelter ants, mushrooms and birds, Your leaves are shield from rain, you are a friend to all that may come *** As we read through, let’s remember to play our role in protecting Earth’s vegetation and […]
Smiles are colorful dresses, Bright are the clouds that sail by, Brighter are lips that wear loving smiles *** Image by Botlhale Nyandeni
Grey shades fall on the land, fast travels the sun through the clouds Songs of slumber, dog barks, the airy evening’s last memories, Time to wake all night creatures, crawling or walking
Smile beautiful flowerLet your tissues and petalsBring warmth to all that see
The unhappy hawk search the burning bush Folk say she was scouting for her old granny, But an escaping rabbit caught her attention instead
How happy, the wind surf the sea! Bending double to strong waves, To escape the doom before her
Twist and turns, that’s the song of life and the road But crawl, walk, run towards those brown hills, Dust shall become a dress or a travelling companion
Take a summer stroll down the green bush Find three squirrels play by fallen tree logs Splash! A frightened frog jumps into the quiet pond
For our love’s memory I cherish your love dose, Your care and your beauty, Each time the swift sun rose Gracefully, I recall our hopes… But the candle light dwindles And I miss you, now that it faints Teach me to love you again Embrace me when I fail; The hugs, cuddling, I’ll relearn- For […]
The world sat on pepper crags The pain that came and went Hunt the rest that sat beside her
The night came and went, but we are awake to Gods call Though the night brought darkness and bricks of wall To everyone, men and women, great or small Yet the love of God wakes with us to perfect us all Good morning from Africa!
There shines a chain of stars, lined up the night sky Glittering to the quiet and queer custom; a perfect night style Lighting up the hill top; a spectacular view of these forested lands Let’s hope on Divine providence; it will never forsake our hands
Memories and tales will be told Hopes and dreams, in shield And all will pass into legend If our paths ever pass again
When I found Your light amidst the darkness, it made my life so beautiful Up the mountains, down the valleys, in the hamlets and in towns The nights bring her blanket upon me, making my heart faint The cold feast upon my flesh, making me shiver and cry out But Your Providence surpasses all my […]
Tonight it all became clear that the end was near All seemed absurd and unnecessary vain here The Earths’ toil, the men who strife Asking what is the essence of life?
For the consciousness come thither to my weary soul The light shining upon the shades of my life The hope and love burning above all, in my heart I say Thanks Lord!
What is more beautiful than to build bridges To bring two different worlds together To bring in two nations to one embrace To bring land over a wide spread of water?
On the day that breaks forth On the blue clouds up the skies On the surprised stare of an infant There is God everywhere
