Treasure Island

Obed Akuma

(1981 / Nyamira, Kenya)

A Two-in-One Smile


Everybody caught it, none missed it
The aura it permeated, the swalloship it punctuated
Trickling into the heart, dripping into the emotions
Seasoning the conversations, spicing the discussions
The bright homily smile is always in handy
At the right time it appears
Not one smile not three smiles, but a two-in-one smile
From the land of 'great houses of stone'

And so the copyrighted two-in-one smile is departing
Departing from amongst us to other lands
As it has done in this land, to bless these other lands, it goes
To anecdotize the heavenly happiness in the hearts of the dwellers of these lands
From us to the two-in-one smile we say:
May He who wonderfully and fearfully formed you
Keep intact and keep that two-in-one smile always on
Always to radiate the gloomy burden stricken hearts you come across
To unveil and testify of His love, to reflect Him and His goodness,
Until that bright morning when His holy gracious and lovely smile we shall behold

To the Ndlovu’s all the best in your endeavors
Bon voyage in this pilgrimage, is the theme of this piece
Adieus!

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
