Chants

I hear chants, Chants! Chants! Chants! Behind closed doors. They assail my ears From The coven The temple The church The mosque So much in common But they beg to differ Do you? Sun asks sea and land "Who struts like he owns the earth?" "He who makes fire." ❤Aweni Adams July 2019

Rain drops

Rainbow

The Oomph

Unique style in spades Cold shoulder to naysayers Dreams in abundance Attitude oozing from pores His Oomph will light the darkness ❤Aweni Image and poetry ©Aweni Adams 2019
