Rainbow in Fall

In the chilly sunset's pall,

the bleeding Fall

makes tones of orange

beyond the horizon.



The skin of the sky yellows.

Some hopes slip out of the cloud pillows.

The powerful green leaves the life.

The shining blue breaks up, in a strife.


To treat the agony of the soul's feelings,

the violet, downcast wisdom's eyes

search for some holy, hidden meanings

of the written truth ~ words in ruth.


The time silently pulses in the veins

of those aged Tuaregs dressed in indigo.

They seem to be gigantic statues guarding

the temple mountains of the Sahara desert.



Poem by Marieta Maglas


Tuaregs are nomadic pastoralists, also named "blue people" due to their indigo-colored clothing covering their tattooed skin stains. They can be found mainly in the Sahara desert. The Tuaregs played an important role in the conflicts of the Saharan area. The meaning of this word is "freemen". Their astral connections include Orion for the desert warrior, the Ursa Major for the waking up moments of the camel mother, and the Ursa Minor for the sleeping baby camel. Tuaregs drink the goat's and the camel's milk that gives them power to use some weapons like swords, lances, and shields. They play music like Takamba using the violin and the drums. Their poems are called Tisiway.

Your poem took me on a journey of discovery, beautifully written. I appreciated learning of the history of the 'Tuaregs' and so interesting that they write poetry and play music.
