The Nubian Adventure

the Nubian adventure
living with the stars after the turbulent
moments of creation

earth-like worlds in motion
orbiting the giant stars trillion of miles away
the rhythm of love foretold!

the solar systems...
dim lights from the baby planets
but where’s the parent star?

love birds in space
i watch as hot heavenly bodies emerge
from the cosmic shade

the Nubian child in the
timeless vortex of the Milky Way
making a splash!

the kangaroo
in my spaceship; feeding
the fallen star.

from darkness to light
bright stars in my visual field
face to face with ambition!
