Dancing Samba Touré

In a Saharan Samba Touré,

a new, blue dance

hits the hotness

of the sand grain and impregnates

the souls with love. There is no chance for God

to be seen , but to be felt

in a high- spirited way . The same tattooed sadness

and its subconscious ascesis

are released in the burning ,

hypnotic air. All the feelings can return

to what they have been once ~

a cyclic evolution in perfectionism. Those free people

being like blue birds of happiness touch

a sky dancing Takamba. Some shadows of the day

fly in the moonlight

to cool off. Old ghosts of memory

are penetrated in their grain of thinking

by the whole world's ancient spirituality~

a need to survive.
