An African Adventure - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana

How sweet are thou
Midnight oil
In the presence of a goddess
To trace her flawless perfection
In our candle-lit heaven
To thaw to her glowing hearth
To kindle tides of fervent desire
As my fossilized heart
Found my perfect match
In a mud-crafted hut
On the banks of the Zambezi
As love incarnated like a germinating seed
To sprout the genesis of mirth
On a serene night, under the African moon
