This is a poem taken from the first novel of the trilogy that gives credence to the title: COLOURED SANDS
She drifted into a dreamy world where frothy water
washed onto a beach of coloured sands –
the colour of people - black, white, yellow and brown;
then suddenly a huge wave, whipped by a fierce wind,
churned and swallowed the coloured sands
that kept swirling and curling, around and
this way and that way until one colour emerged
the colour of tan.
People walked proudly out of those waves –
beautiful golden tan people, the colour of all people combined
and the eyes that shone from those beautiful,
golden, tan faces were full of love and peace.
