Sunlight on the far horizon
Shades of gold and gray
Songs of birds, a shrill “Awaken”
Young giraffes at play
Lion standing on the headland
Oryx far below
Lake shimmering in the sunrise
Mountains all aglow
Sandy streambeds dry and dusty
Waiting for the rains
Green acacias spread their branches
Form a winding lane
Twilight on this barren landscape
Shadows through the years
Winds rustling through the outcrops
Whisper in my ears
Endless fields of ripened starlight
Shining cold and bright
Crescent moon, a silver sickle
Sweeps across the night
