People of the Sahara

We live by the sun and the moon.

Our boo boo's billow in the wind.

When I see the moon, I know it is night.

The rising sun tells me day has come.

When I feel pain in my stomach, I eat my couscous, then.

When my eyes no longer open I lay beneath my tent.

What is time?

We have no need for time.

We live by the sun and the moon.

We are people of the Sahara.

(by Ruth Garvin and Jere Witherspoon - inspired by our experiences in Mauritania.)
