Slow and lazy
The little wavelets they play
Against the sea wall
I hear in a dream their soft call
I was by a swanless lake
Suddenly I find myself awake
In a small room at CWS hostel
Staring out the at a strange spell
lights of the Madang Resort Hotel
bouncing off the little bay
I remember now….
Got in late today
And missed the last ferry
That sailed away too early
Skippered by my pele Nandex the Manam Islander
Past Kranget, past Bilia, past Panutibun, past Samun, …on to Siar…
…tsk….the night has suddenly slowed down to a crawl
tomorrow seems centuries away
and now my heart refuse to listen to me
beating down my chest
somehow reborn by re-discovered sweetness
for a sweet Nuipein
who’s but only moments away ……….
...Mangi-nambis...calling from the South Seas...
