#Bilum.. Tanka

Our identities,

woven into the fibre

of this lovely womb

hangs my beautiful country,

Papua New Guinea’s life.

Telling the story

of birth pangs and growing up

our thirsty souls cry

to find answers in the race

choked with information age.

God of this nation,

unrighteousness and doubts gnaw,

as the bilum hungs,

with our precious souls treasured,

is exposed to rats and thieves.

Pour your anointing

oil, unto the dormant seeds

of your words to grow

so the flowers shall bloom in this

land of paradise again.

Dancing Garden #Haiku

Photo by Teona. Swift. Pexel free

when the sun is out

together with the low breeze

swaying leaves rustles

I’m in the garden

feeling the breeze caressing

sun’s warmth feels cozy

blooms in the garden

clothed with many colours

swaying towards me

I dance with the blooms

to the rhythm of the wind

the sun dances too

… “” “…….” “……” “”… “”… “”…

sun rising

low wind blowing

falling leaves fly

….. ” ”…….. ” ”…. ” ”…….

(Tokpisin) Translation #haiku

win i strong tumas

ol lips pilai

HAIKu.. Morning light

Photo by Maria Orlova on Pexels.com

II’s a lovely sunday morning, the sun is not strong, a clear sky with this wispy morning wind. Light penetrates through the iron door frame. I am sitting behind the table infront of the open door leading to the verandah outside. Morning greets me with this beautiful velvety cool feeling. The guava, palm and bougainvillea leaves rustling as the morning wind blow past through them.

morning breeze blowing

rustling leaves gracefully swaying

nature’s cooling fan
