Our Desert is Blooming



Come,take a look
At this auspicious wonder
In the heart of the Sahel
The savanna of the Sahara.


The dry lands are disappearing
Into a caste of gold
The brown sands are vanishing
Into worlds unknown.


The land is becoming green
Our streets becoming clean
The desert indeed is blooming
A plenteous harvest alooming.


The snakes are slithering away
Into kingdoms faraway
Scorpions also going into exile
Leaving our lands very fertile.

Let’s listen to the melody
Of the whispering leaves
Let’s dance to the smiling rhapsody
Of our sprouting sheaves.


(Excerpts from Featiler July edition).

Running Slowly



I was wandering about in the palace of thought,
Gazing through the confusion of my mind.
I’ve been told that life is a race
But sometimes I wonder if we get to run it on tracks
Or it’s just a marathon, free race

With the way I’ve perceived life,
And the sweet-bitter aromas I’ve smelt,
I don’t think life’s race is on tracks.
For me, in the pavilion of my mind,
Life is a race but not on tracks

Listening……I can hear the canaries

Hey, sit down
You’ve been seeing much around town
Calm down now your nerves
Let them not get wrongly swerved
Can you hear it?
It’s the clock ticking
Ticking away all your worries and easing,
Easing you into a bliss welcoming

Can you see it,
Though it’s lit?
With its fading silver lining.
The sky is not always dark even in the dark
There’s always a light lining it’s lark
Look up
It’s there for you to wonder
And triumph even as you ponder.

Listen now
Can you hear the cricket chirping?
Saying that life exists,
Outside the honking of traffic down the street.
Can you hear the gecko clicking?
With its ‘we all come back to nature’ sound
And it’s true
Nature covers all.

I’m listening…..
The church bell is ringing now
Ringing new day and ways
To my weary ears and heart.
