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;
Now with a commune of watching ancestors
grateful that these too lit candles in the hearts
