An excerpt from my book "Mutual Discovery, at the end of the tunnel" recently published by www.lulu.com. There is also the French version of this poem.


Sunset in N’kamba

The sky was ocher
And the countryside glowing.

Far away,
On the horizon,
Went down,
Towards the slate-gray mountain,
A mighty pink ball,
Like an all-embracing curious eye:
The African village
Plunged
Into a riot of colors.

On the top of giant eucalypti,
Before enjoying a long rest,
Were singing birds.

In the street
Bathed in flickering daylight,
Children were playing,
And grown-ups were sharing
Innocent secrets.

I couldn’t stop admiring
This magical scenery,
I wished eternity.
But, slowly,
Inexorably,
Unfailingly,
Merged the colors of nature,
Under the cover of night.

  

Mutual Discovery, at the end of the tunnel
