Rubbled Place

Golden beams, a day breaks softly,
doves slow calling, summer's ripe.
Joy kept silent peers out slowly,
gingerly I take a chance.

Days in Africa rise gracefully,
a woman with a baby upon her back.
Home, home my heart says shyly,
leave me here in rubbled place.

Shining on the sun covers mielies,
open plains and dusty towns.
Each day a heave with burdens,
dense and rich her hollow cry.
Scattered stories bake in daylight,
dirty feet beat heat in time.
Dignity so torn no mention,
life's long day a ruthless climb.

I wake on this new morning,
back once more in the place I was born.
God help me to do your work here,
to carry hope, to grow, be kind.

How expressive, exquisite, and with the perfect touch of delicacy and realism. You painted a picture, told a story, performed a dance, and sang a song all at once. So personal yet so universal. Bravo!
