Journey North

Sirocco winds,
birthed in the dune canyons
of the Sahara,
push out their breath
with the strength of a woman in labor,
echo the sounds of
Oud, Kora, Shekere and Algaita,
trumpet, elephant-like,
the story of their creation
on the journey north
to wed continents
in a tumultuous marriage
filled with turbulent hot air.
