Poem: Oh Beautiful Land (Malawi)

Gazing into this land
Beauty prevalent in every sight
Winds calling, guiding me
Trees inviting, talking to me

The dust surrounds me
Making its presence known
Rains in the near future
To feed this thirsty soil

Birds flying in harmony
Singing songs of praise
Tides rising and rising
As fish gasp into the air

Form a cacoon as the cold
The cold pierces my skin
Freezing my blood
My body stiffens

Sun shine, glow your light
Your light to my veins
Enlighten my being
I’ve started seeing
