Médina Marocaine

Painted with a palette 

of a thousand ancient suns

and paved with soulful prayers 

of a thousand wildish tongues 

and remembered with those echoes

of a thousand greeting songs,

the ever-giving delta lies there

as it’s only ever done 

and awaits those new-born lovers

who know they need and want

to make their artful meaning 

when in the end, we simply must.
