Plains of Africa

Summer rains have fallen,
The deluge just begun,
The brown of winter lifting,
Green leaves sprout for sun.

Landscapes change, as every year,
Desolation falling fast,
As nature begins painting,
The canvass endless, vast.

Land stretching to infinity,
Rolling from the eye,
Touching  heart and soul,
Reaching for the sky.

Dead brown plains of Africa,
Bursting with new life,
Show naturally how dreams evolve,
Sweetness, brightness, light.

  1. What mixed feelings to read this delightful verse this morning, Rob….when I looked out my bedroom window this morning, voilà! the first snow of coming winter graced the tops of the bushes like confectioner’s sugar…’s always spring…somewhere!
