One With The Universe by Tefo Tlale

Tefo Tlale | April 21st, 2023 | poetry | No Comments


I am the giant baobab tree, glorious in her watch over the African plains.

I am the sonorous sound of the mating birds dancing in spring.

I am the sound of a newborn screaming for air whilst clasping her tearful parents.

I am the sweet sensation of music on a most auspicious day. The blooming purple jacaranda with her intoxicating fragrance. The cherry blossom’s distant lover.

I am a mother’s warm kiss that assures one that all will be alright. The gentle hug that heals. I am the song of existence

I am the sun that rises after the hail storm.
I am life. I am light. I am love.
I am infinite.
I am, Yes!
