And you thought Africa was all brown?
Dust blowing over the dry savannah
animals desperate for water
and the tall elephant grass withering in the heat.
Or maybe you pictured Africa as green?
When the dark clouds drop torrential rains
everything changes into fresh green
and the big herds migrate to green pastures.
But did you see Africa as blue?
The sparking blue oceans that surround it
its azure skies that always bless the land
and its silver blue stars that watch the birds sleeping.
