I wonder in you The wind blowing as I watch atop the hill, The humming sound of the grinding mill. The squadron to the east performing a battle drill, Each a tickling stitch that makes me feel Mesmerized, mused, and coerced to stand still. The deciduous, leafless and smooth baobab tree. Standing, naked and proud singing let it be, in Fuhrer Nature you're are the law, I follow thee. The seasons, the climate, that’s you we see. The spreading sheet of the sky's blue, The spartan expansive oceanic hue, I wonder in oblivion forgetting I am a speck of you. Dice is the game you play to stay anew, So I am a chance that you did yourself threw. Now I am anxiously struggling in dear you, wishing they taught more about thee at school. The shimmering candle daylight that's our sun, The romantic candle nightlight that's the moon. Twinkling stars; some are history books of a time long gone, Some our destiny in a time to come soon. Sagittarius, Sarus, Orion...; another far away place to be born. As it rains Standing by the window as it rains Drenching the ground and filling the drains Croaking frogs in adjacent plains Scuttling pupils in muddy grey pants My widow neighbour with her little kid Walking down along the gravel road A plastic bag covering her head Smiling at me but she looked sad The boy speeding with a green wheelbarrow Rushing for the bridge before it overflows The girl standing akimbo next door As if a ritual to make it rain more They were cuddling as they went My uncle the other I guess was a whore These two were elusive as a riddle Why when raining they go for the jungle
