 DO YOU REMEMBER?

Do You Remember...

Excuse me miss! Did you miss me?
Who am I?
WHO AM I?
Don't you remember me
Don't I look familiar
Perhaps the centuries have dulled the memory of our interaction
But in your eyes still spark that eternal fire

Thousands of years ago
The silence would be broken by your joyful laughter
We used to meditate on the banks of the river Nile
Delving into sacred mysteries
Practising philosophy in universities that predated Socrates
Practising religion and spirituality centuries before Christianity
Traversing the universe in in poetic verses
We searched for that ideal that would heal
We flashed with the lightning and rolled with the thunder
Thousands of years ago our hearts beat in synchronicity with the cosmic energy
Our racing hearts meeting the beating drums of an ancient past
you are smiling, you remember now
that same smile that was the rainbow
on rainy days long ago

words dance poetically on a bright moonlit night
stars speak silently, twinkling bright
supernatural forces hum and vibrate
elevate and communicate  
energy massages the budding consciousness
Do you remember when we danced

On lush mountains overflowing with water
I await your lips to speak
Climaxing into wisdom
And evolving into a swirling pool of eternal creation
Graceful in motion
Swimming in the deep blue ocean of our consciousness
Beauty unrevealed, unconcealed, naked and shocking as truth
Yet hidden as the root that snakes deep into the pits of our existence
Yes Princess we meet again..............

I Sit
And listen
There's something I must tell you
I remember when I saw you thousand of years ago
You were a new breeze
Now you see my change
My height, my lips, my hair, my smile
My speech, my laugh, my style
And you are still attentive
As you were
It is a nice tingle in me
Sweet, real, sweet cream
You come along again
Like you did thousand of years ago
My angel in the choir
Then let's take that next step
as I sit
listen
and remember.

Bantu-Kelani.
