Cleansing Rain

Cleansing Rain

Passionate winds snake through the undulating trees

Sweet decay of elephant dung carries on the breeze

Scorching sunshine and shimmering heat

Pulse of Africa throbs beneath their feet

A small herd of elephants amble: muscular trunks held high

Billowing clouds hustle: raging across the sky

Elephants… powerful and majestic: light on their feet

Echoes of harmony where land and giants meet

Fold upon fold of wrinkles: Africa shaped ears fanned wide

Wearing coats of dignity and creamy tusks…their pride

Thunder roars: tensions run high

Lightening flashes..jagged across the angry sky

Stinging needle like rain falls…beautiful cleansing rain

Washing away the corruption: easing Africa’s pain

Spiderwebs sparkle like transparent lace

A warm wet breath blows in this magical place

An orchestra of crickets seduce the fading light

Earthy scents linger to welcome the night

Moon spills gently caressing the trees

A twinkling of stars peak and tease

Peace spreads it’s wings over Africa’s sunrise

Brushstrokes of fiery gold saturate the sky

Whispers of life celebrating the fresh new dawn

Anticipation hangs….an exciting new morn

Where there is life there is hope and we continue to fight

Wildlife guardians putting wrongs to right
