~A TIME OF TRANQUILLITY~
The elements; magic in its purest,
Africa: the origin of life,
The grace and glory of the sun beams
radiantly in golden yellow; bringing to life the bronze terracottas.
Intelligent and magnificent women,
Ingenious and handsome men,
Skin; endowed by heaven with a tremendous glow,
Beautiful & playful giggles of younglings echo around the stream,
Red warriors; the protectors of the golden land.
Antelopes sprinting around the thick forests,
Hunting and being hunted,
Love, honor and integrity; the land’s cornerstone.
When the sun kisses the horizon;
each house gathers in front of their gold-plated huts
to tell tales of their great lands,
Till the sky darkens,
letting the stars shine
as the moon caresses the continent.
