Vibrant Welcome

Welcome, guests, into

Our midst.

Join right in, you’ll

Get the gist.

We’ll dance you

Through our jungle greens,

‘Twixt crops in fields,

Across ravines.

We’ll sing and chant

And strike the ground,

With feet and poles

And hearts and sound.

Welcome, guests, into

Our midst.

Where mists among

The mountains

Roam,

And culture bursts

In vibrant

Song.

 

 

Dedicated to the amazing villages in Papua New Guinea, who came out in their young and old and in betweens, to dance heartwarming welcomes to my nephew and his friends who stayed as guests in their midst.

In the mood for some tea?

Come along here with me.

There are pooch pots

And kitsch pots

Elephant tea pot, too.

There’s a cow,

There are cats,

Which will be right for you?

Like the goddess of the rainbow

You stand tall

In every hue,

And lend credence to the story

That it’s gorgeous

To be you.
