The Color and Shape and Smell

The color and shape and smell and sound I imagine in my head - I see black and orange, big and small, while the sharp smell of food and spice connect themselves with the sound of drum and voice in the open air under the famed African skies.

As I imagine this I grow homesick yet excited and ready to be in this place I can only dream of today.

I realize I will want to return to these skies, colors, shapes, smells and sounds one day, with you.
