The Nubian Night

my soul grows stronger
and stronger as the rainbow lorikeet sings
the song of freedom
turning the Nubian night of hopelessness
into the golden dawn of optimism...
wiping away the tears of many

the delicate drop of joy
lies like a lover in my arms.

then, as the love molecules dance
to the rhythm of the earth; opening
the tender heart of mercy
the new dawn sows the sacred
seeds of harmony; feeding the
hungry mouths in the ‘hood

now, even the gods also speak of the Day of Light 
when the refugees from Eden play the divine melody.

always in motion, the wandering moon
comes to the party with a bagful of dreams
capturing the spirit
of the moment; (musing of happier times…)
banishing poverty and inequality
across the ancient land of many colours

how sweet is the moment when
laughter finds a new home of desire?
