Mayari



  The moon god's light is all over the village.
I have to be up and about
in this wee hour of the morning
 to lovingly caress my strands
and lavish my skin
with sweet coconut oil.
The tall Caucasian man visited our tribe 
on the fourth day of this week.
 He said he will be back today
to teach me how to read this thing he calls book.
Oh gee! I love to touch his curly brown locks
and stare at his blue eyes.
Something in the way he gazes at my body
sends a tingly sensation inside of me.
Oh yes, he smells extremely masculine!
Unlike the men around here 
whose breath reek of tobacco 
and wild boar's stench.
Today, I will tell him who I am.
 My Ina named me after the goddess of the moon
whose beauty illumines the entire kingdom of 
Diwatas.

I am 
Mayari.

  2. Very interesting and beautiful tale that you have woven. I often feel a shame as a mostly Caucasian person to think what my ancestors did to destroy the Aboriginal cultures in other lands.

  3. OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF July 2016, And I saw a marvelous testimony of this powerful and great spell caster called DR Papa on the forum..I never believed it, because I never heard nor learnt anything about magic before.. Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not until DR Papa did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me and brought my spouse back to me in the same 48hours just as I have read on the internet..I was truly astonished and shocked when my husband knelt down begging for forgiveness and for me to accept him back.. I am really short of expressions, and I don't know how much to convey my appreciation to you DR Papa, you are a God sent to me and my entire family.. Here is his website: www.supremetemple.com. His Email: supremetemple@hotmail.com
