African Harmony

The African wilderness is alive with stories written in a number of formats, form the scent of the wind to the sounds of a storm, and it is possible to understand the lyricsWe have moved so far from our roots in the earth that we find no inspiration from the wilderness save for the sight of the big game that we have been instructed to appreciate as the ultimate African wilderness experience.

Stories in the African Wind

Do not hide from the secrets of the wind

But attend closely to the stories

Whispered to the senses


You can learn of a passing herd

Told in urine stained dust

And death described in malodorous mutters

Or a scented voice

Telling of the first sprinkling of blossoms

And a distant storm opening a new season

Beauty within and without

Seek out the beauty

Raw and refined

Visible all around

In the scents, sights and sounds


In a sunlit morning of a rainy night

Damp-scented, rejuvenating

Glistening diamonds of moisture

Reflective pools with the breeze teased water

Dancing to the tune of the sun
Seek out the beauty

In the sparkling jewels

Of webs and wings

And breeze-stirred leaves

Brushed by the morning sun

Beauty in the suffering

Abstract beauty in suffering and death

Patterned swirling in a shrinking pool

In footprints of last hope cast in mud

A hollowed carcass cut on an open plain

In the soft artist yellows of afternoon

Melting into the oranges of evening

And the serenading nocturnal voices

Telling of the cycle of the wildernessLeigh Kemp
