    KUBARA

    He looks in the mirror
    He likes what he sees

    No need for a shave
    He likes what he sees

    He likes what he sees
    because every nation
    (past and present)
    has a place
    a space in his reflection


    He runs the bath...

    The Caribbean Sea flows from the hot tap
    The Pacific from the other

    Adding 5-6-7-8 drops of Cuban salsa,
    his spirit slides in


    The bennu bird taught him
    how to breathe
    how to be free
    how to float
    in the creative sea (of Ka)
    and now he soaks
    in the sea that resides within him


    He steps out of the bath
    dries himself with the warmth that flows
    from Ra's devoted gaze


    Holding sunbeams firmly
    in the palm of his soul,
    he smiles.


    Now he can teach the caged bird
    how to be free...

    Thank you... I wasn't expecting such prompt replies! Appreciate it.

    Poetry never ceases to amaze me and leave me awe-inspired. I am humbled by it.
