You don't know where you are going. You don't know how to get there. And you arrive just the same. Ghanaian saying

Symphony of Old and New

The cooling AC softly whirs
New day’s light shining through the trees
Creates a lacy pattern on warm brick wall
Outside my window.

Flame of small red candle flickers
Smell and taste of coffee steaming
Tick of clock hanging on the wall
Companions to begin my morning.

Every day for many years it has been so
Today there’s something new.
Leaf of philodendron on the table by my side
Has on its tip one crystal water drop.
