Tropical Rain

12 August 2013 - 9:56pm -- charles

 

Clouds have formed while I lay in slumber

The early morning sky is grey as nightfall

And I wake to the sound of rain falling

It plummets heavy and fast

 

As the rain falls it leans sideways

Easterly it dances with the wind

It leans toward the ocean

Like young take to milk

 

The rain shows its many moods

Coming and going as it pleases

From a heavy start it settles slowly

Afrika, We need Ideas, Creativity & Innovation to Develop Communities!

Endimi elima emparangwa etaha. (Haya)
Kila mtu ana kipawa chake. (Swahili)
Individuals have different talents. African Proverb (English)

Africans have the ability and the skills to create the future they desire. In order to create, it is necessary to come into contact with one’s true identity. This knowledge of self allows for people to pursue their passion and purpose in life. Clarity of purpose infused with passion inspires and fuels great ideas allowing creativity to reach its full potential and people can positively impact their own lives and those of the people around them. Whilst ideas may seem small and simple in the beginning they, in the long-run, can change and greatly impact our communities, nations, and the world over.
