Jinja

Today, I saw the gray, misty clouds
Descend from heaven and rest
across the Nile…a gush of cold wind kneeling
to kiss the earth.
I was overwhelmed,
by the deafening silence of the morning.

In the distance, I saw the sun
cautiously peek over the horizon.
As if afraid of being hit.

As it got closer to dawn, I gazed towards the heavens,
Mesmerized by the glitter of diamonds
Embedded in the depths of the black abyss.
I stood in awe as I caught
A glimpse of eternity.

In the distance I heard the hadada ibis argue with the moon,
and down by the close of the river where the birds perch,
I heard the owl call your name….

I made sweet love to nature…mesmerized by the breath taking beauty, i dropped my defenses to the charm of the sun and the kisses of the wind…arrrt

Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
