Le Tableaux Senegal
By Phyllis C.Murray
If I could paint a picture on the canvas of your imagination,
There would be a rock
as strong as as black as my brothers
the sculptures black.
There would be rivers
as clear and as wise as my elders
.the diamond glistening.
There would be the Hibiscus
as sweet and alive as my children
the dolls so pretty.
There would be markets
as beautiful and radiant as my sisters
the fabrics so delicate
Now my painting is complete
I will absorb myself withing its texture,
My arms will be the frame;
And I will call the painting…
I’ve seen many countries but none had the impact on my soul like Senegal.
It’s a marvelous place to visit and the people are what make it so special.
There are so many warm people that gladly invite you into their home to
share a meal or memories, even if some are put off by the Toubabs ;)
