This used to be our secret place
Where the still water stirred by our rosy kisses
Frantic hands hidden in the bush laden inlet

Sacred kingfishers were jealous of our playfulness
Darting through the green and grey branches

Pied cormorants were watchful of the riverbank
The green and blue river rippled perfect reflection of their orbs

We sailed our little yacht along the stretched yellow mangrove
Left our sanctuary behind in the tangerine sunset
