I`ve been to ancestral

burial sites

to pick on

their wisdom

learn their tongue

of

stars

flowers

butterflies

the brave lion

and the elephant

can you therefore

still dare the gods

by playing deaf

to my solicitations

when my language

is the splendour

of stars

scattered artistically across

the velvety face

of a dark sky

my language

is the roar

of the brave lion

kaleidoscope of flowers

sweet smell of roses

and so wil you

now listen

 to

the stars

lion

elephant

roses

and fulfill

what the ancestors

in their wisdom ordained
