One gleamed with tales of proverbs
that mended history

the other called history
to a dialogue with conscience

metaphors burdened with messages
mantras brimmed with morals;

two sides of a coin.
each, an inscription of dreams
fulfilled in the pages of freedom;

each, seeking a Sahara of hope
and calling a people to a festival beyond self;

Elders transformed!
Now with a commune of watching ancestors
grateful that these too lit candles in the hearts of mortals.


James Yeku is a writer and academic based in Canada.
