The Shade of the Baobab …

the wandering soul rests,

a Baobab tree offering sanctuary,

the South African sun,

ablaze …

the wanderer gives thanks to the ancestors,

a moment of respite from the unending journey,

sifting through the dust,

divining the road ahead,

a time to reflect,

on all the miles lost to the sieve of time,

and,

on all the paths that have yet to be tread.

the charade swoons ever on,

moulted remnants of dulled pain,

lie scattered across the blank page,

as slowly approaching dawn,

offers a glimpse,

a fleeting mirage,

of a fragrant new morn …
