My homage to the continent of Africa, which stands for more than monkeys and misery- eight haikus



Merciless desert

Dark shade rocks, sands to the end

Crescent, sparkling stars


Sun-kissed palm groves

Sweet smell soil fertility

The pyramids loom


Lush shades of green, breeze

Gently embraces red sandstone

Antilopes roam free


Dark dense canopy

Night elephant forest trails

Leopard's eye blinks fierce


Dark rivers silk sky

Water thunders, ocean spray

Bacalao shoal bliss


Born out of clay dust

Happy red night life and beer

Unleashed city joy


Music and danse

Vibrate through a starry night

Smoke of grilled fish


Sweet Congo woman

Fire blazes between your legs

Heroism and smile


(c) 2004 by Franz L Kessler

I just brought home some books on Africa, from the local
library. Have been in love with that country and its people
since I was a child, but have never been there.

Africa has always stood in my mind as a strong, proud, wild country with nature singing her best. Your poem does her great justice.
