Acacias are leaning o’er the
breast of the river,
Their sensuous scents spread
smiles in the air.
On a bird’s crest, the sun sips
dews and quiver
As the waves comb the hairs of reeds in dispair
Where i saw stars caressed rainbow last night.
Sweet home! How sweetly
to be here again
To be kissed by breeze and warm sunlight;
To nod in the blues of coral figurine in fain.
Behind me is a Tree with
three branches,
Whose roots often give life
to dead mangroves.
How childhood memories come alive as He watches
The rain’s fingers drum on the thatched roofs.
O! My Woman, we’re far
away full of bitterness,
I’m back to seek life in the sun of your blackness.
