Ekuri

December 28, 2012

The mountain waited.
Gorillas called.
Strange stars held the sky
And the drums –
the drums owned the night.

Trails polished and honed
by bare feet.
Rich, dark harmonies
in a jungle
that holds its secrets close.

I watched, silent-

was energized
by waterfalls
by exotic life

was mesmerized
by dark eyes
dark skin
dark grace, and
pride.

Your strength
seduces me.

And
I am left hungering.
