Grandfather’s Day
An introduction to the Kafetugu people

The Dancing Waves


On the surface of the mysterious blue
Unseen wind kissing saltwater surface
Curving white clouds of rumbling bubbles
Forcing the waves to follow in a curve
Like morning fog on the tree tops

A dancing queen with a glistening crown
Smiling and swinging in magic rhythm
Like Motu frangipani petals swaying
Stalked on soft frizzy and kinky hair
Waving steadily in ceaseless cadence

Like an image reflecting in a mirror
Rushing to the seashore’s sands
As a herd of woolly sheep might move
Wanting in calmness and serenity
Stained a complexion of its own turbulence

Yet, the blowing strength of the wind
Always making the moving sea grumble
Shoving dancing waves to leap and to dive
It’s the dance of the waves in choreography,
A gift for our eyes from the bustle of the sea
