Nature’s Welcoming Band
As i walk down the dusty narrow road,
where trees sway from right to left,
well the leaves clap with excitement,
birds singing with their melodious voices,
hello! what are we singing today,
chiiip chiii chip chip chhhhiipp,
i join them and sing along,
this was my favorite part
nature’s welcoming band.
From a distance, i could hear
the ocean calling my name,
i closed my eyes as i listened
to the wave’s secret talks, feeling
its cool breeze touch my smooth skin,
what a breathe taking site.
I continued walking down
the beach, as my house was
not from where
i was, the houses are identical
built in the swahili culture,
for we loved been close
to our own traditional roots
and preserve the nature.
Its funny how i was writing this piece as i closed my eyes, recalling this images in my head. For i wanted them to come to live as i wrote them, hahah.
