To The Spirit of Creation. (Kenya's Delight 5)
"I was all set, to let you rest today,
But the rain and cold came, to my dismay." -Manatita
This April day is intensely cold in Kenya,
And I'm caught ill-prepared.
Zephyrs beat against my warm-blooded frame,
Their chilly breath, tearing into my bones like cubes of ice.
A Kenyan woman,
Additionally clothed with boots and jacket,
Noted that it is the worst its been so far
And speaks of global warming.
This offers me no solace,
As this unusual weather seeps into my core.
Even as a child I loved the sun!
Spoilt from the beauty of
Blessed temperatures; translucent skies,
Coping with additional thermals, was still a challenge.
Some beings are happy though.
Birds still sing; the palm trees glisten with the rain.
Adjacent cars are spontaneously washed clean,
And swimmers front-crawl up and down with zest.
As I write, the clouds begin to clear,
The sun peeps through and smiles upon us,
Bowing in sweet reverence,
To the Spirit of Creation.
