A Haiku from Andalusia

Greetings! I’m currently on a trip through Spain. This morning while looking out over the Mediterranean, where you can see Africa on the horizon, I wrote this Haiku, which I thought worth sharing. Besos, Luke

 

Afriku

Africa is there –

Beyond the mists and vapours

Of my memory.

 

Africa is here –

Below the bricks and rubble

Of your heritage.

 

Africa is me –

The fire, the burning spirit

Beneath my visage.

 

Africa is you –

The bold, eternal rhythm

Behind your heartbeat.
