Garo Matana, the blue-eyed child – Part 1
What an odd life

Simbu Courtship


Heavenly flame caging its eyes
Within the shadow of darkness
Before the fire’s soft glow
At the edge of the women’s hut
Align parallel facing each other

The midnight princesses align
With their tender oily flesh
Bird of paradise framing their face
Through dim flame a golden brown
Alongside eager encircling kumuls

Sweet courtship songs intoned
From their lips in eloquent voice
Touching hearts for deep meditation
Seducing, pinching, some giggling too
Ambling in pair into a dense forest

Even proposal plans are common
At the watchful eyes of the maiden
Beside the fireplace commenting
As the climax of courtship mounts
Like wandering in Eden’s sweet garden

Sweet romantic songs propel
From the hearts of princesses
To solace the hearts of nighttime kumuls
A destination for alluring songs
Ending a night of romantic courtship
