blue and white

the majestic Nile

strangers meet


estranged hues

mingle with each other

see the croc


longest kiss

not strangers anymore

lovers meet


* These haiku are a reference to Khartoum, where the blue and the white Nile meets. The Arab poets call their meeting- “the longest kiss in history”.
