HE HAS LANDED   

Woke up with a jolt
To find
The rivers are flowing faster
All smooth
As if the river beds have become well-oiled now

The kites are flying higher and higher
Humanity mesmerized by their graceful dancing
High up in the sky
Wind singing everywhere
Strong but cool breeze
Soothing like massage over my shoulders
I swoon and get swallowed up
By Mother Earth

Night time came
And I peaked through the porous soil
The Moon
The Stars
Glowing in the sun
Insane

Woke up with a jolt
To see birds singing everywhere
All melodies
All sounds
All voices
Universal glory of song
I swoon and get swallowed up
By Mother Earth

At first
I heard it from a distance
It grew, and grew, and grew, and grew, and grew, …
And then faded, and faded, and faded, and faded, …

Woke up with a jolt
To find odours of bodies thrilling my senses
Gawd, am I in National Geographic now
So many bodies
All shapes, all sizes
All tones of skin colour
All hairs, all bald
All humming, all staccatoing
All sweating, all smelling
As one
In the name of Peace
In the name of HOPE

And The Drummers
Groaned
Se ifikile Imbube!
The Lion has arrived
OBAMA IS HERE!
