Summers in Badbar

We used to visit
my great grandmother
in the village of Badbar
in the season of summer
I would say I am hungry
I would say cook fast
she would turn lovingly
and sing back to me
this is not the city
we have to collect logs
and set them alight
only then can we cook
to fill your appetite
I remember her words
my great grandmother
there was so much
to learn from her
Singing lights the fire
to fill soul's hunger

- The purpose of life is to sing
