Match made in Africa

November 24, 2020 - Heart matters, In Love
Match made in Africa

When we stand in the village arena near the merry-go-round
We interlude and smile, delighting in grace
And we are trapped in an air of wild chemistry
All because we write our own highland story
We are the owners of our honey-glazed & match made African melodrama

Our home is in the “bush” that knows no extreme seasons
No winter, snow, spring or autumn here
Our seasons are only the planting season and the dry season
We only know of animation of sunshine and rain
And we and our cattle love it that way

We walk around and we shine by our own light
When we look at our relationship, we are swamped by happy feelings
The chaff in our meals and the dirt in our eyes is nothing compared with the excitement in our hearts
While others think we are backward and troubled
We chime with the sounds of good merry

Our mix and tangle is birthed out of transparency of our affections
The irony is in the simplicity of our lightheartedness
Our hearts are lifted with the mildness of our smiles
And every day is a picnic
Our love story has been roast-fried in the African kitchen

We are unapologetically African with the tint of clay
The colour of our skin is darker than the shade of the ideal stain
Our feet speak of the travels taken from faraway places
And our eyes are pegged on our lifelong journeys ahead
Because our adventurous love journey just started
