Strange Light ~ (Paramaribo, Suriname)


Downtown Paramaribo

Traffic screams hell all over

Dazzling light and burning sun

Sweat-soaked faces moving on

Quiet late afternoon

People relax in wooden houses

Rocking chairs behind blinds

Flaming red sinks behind roof tops

Siksiyuru commences it’s night call

Dogs creep out from under floors

Strange light draws long shadows

This is when old spirits  come out

Grandma used to say
