I stray into the dusty plains of Africa where magnificent animals run wild...so incredible..morph it does into the greed of men who went and disturbed the tribal glory to sell as slaves..

In Perfect Symmetry

With feline grace she rises
High over ground
Legs outstretched in motion slow
Llghtning quick reality

In perfect symmetry this one
So graceful in every way
Head held high never moving
Long sleek all

Fur spotted so perfect is
Circles of white and brown
Golden from head to toe
She shines

Populace

Cross dusty plains under burning sun
Stunted bushes grow
Along solemnly trudge
Elephants other animals too

Zebras ringed in black and white
Fast their hooves hit ground
Rhinoceros their shaggy fur hangs down
Stirring up the matted growth

Underfoot red ants run wild
Scattering as if provoked
Snakes slither restlessly
Avoiding pounding feet

The Ways

Majestic lions golden maned
Black panthers mean
Slitted eyes of deepest green
Observing horizons far beyond

Waiting patiently for prey
Again to happen in their way
Gazelles with heads alert
Signal one to another so very wise

Hyenas drag their low behinds
Closely to the ground
Laden down with morning's kill
Always waiting for more

Magic and Majesty

Magic and majesty of Africa
Whoever wants to see
It goes on incredibly
Panoramas vast perceive

A culture old in time
Practicing a loving way
Until the white man came
Changes he did make

Robbing them of birthright theirs
Making into slaves
Shipping them to far off lands
Away from all they loved

Pity needed yes indeed
For them and those who
Awful things did do
All return-ed it will be

As the hand on clock goes round and round
Returning to whence it came
So greed and lust for power
Cometh back in many ways

We all have debts to pay
And paid in full will be


as it will be

I would love to go to Africa, my family doctor is from there and he goes back and always brings back the most amazing animal pictures that he has taken. I know some areas are less safe and would only go with a group.

Beauty of Africa so well captured through words, video and images, well done Carolina. Yes, we all have to pay for our follies and more for deliberate actions that have harmed many innocents - siva
