Umuna’s arm draped over her shoulder. A smile shone from ear to ear & it was not purely for our arrival
As we made our way through the dusty village Umuna’s arm slid from Riapama, his smile never wavered. He was happy for a number of reasons, the girl being reason number one
As we stood & passed on our greetings I could see Riapama staring at us, she was unsure what our intentions were. Umuna yet to introduce us.
I asked if we could stay a few days. A question I always pose knowing full well what the answer would be. The answer inevitably, yes.
With the greetings & respectful inquiries out of the way it was time to explore the village. A time to say hello to the old faces & a time to meet the new. Obviously Riapama the first we were to greet
She stood like a fashion store mannequin. All the attention focused on her, silent & still. She was unsure why we ogled her motionless form, then Umuna blurted in broken English; Girlfriend.
His joy was obvious, the smile grew as I laughed at his English attempt, he a very proud man. Riapama still unsure of the situation.
Cameras were ushered & it was time to take a number of pictures. Umuna wanted a keepsake of he and his new beauty
There was urgency in his requests as his first wife was due back in the village soon. When she returned, the dynamics were sure to change
Over the following days it was obvious to see how smitten Umuna was. Pangs of new love or lust showed in all of his actions. Riapama a stark contrast. She, an outsider thrust into the limelight inside a village that had a clear pecking order. She wanted the man but not the attention or drama
During the days she would sit with the women, silent & still. Only included in the group when Twakara, Umuna’s first wife was not around
Each day she inched closer to the close knit group. Her inclusion would be a long & bumpy road. Only time would tell of the outcome once the novelty of new love wore thin.
Was this this meeting the start of a new chapter of life & conflict in the village, or was it another passing dame that took Umuna’s eye.
Only time would tell & I will have to wait for my return to uncover what the following chapter will be.
• Bu Akdeniz bitki örtüsü makiye ait bir meyve. Murt, mersin, hambelis, hambeles gibi isimleri var.
Anne dedim bu murtlar hep ezilmiş. Hassas olur onlar, ondan dedi. Hassas insanlar gibi yani dedim.
Zihnimizin değirmeninde kendimize ettiğimiz ne çok nasihati öğütüyoruz. Baş edemeyişlerimizi, örtülerimizin, perdelerimizin, duvarlarımızın kerametine zorunlu bırakışımızdan bu yana söylenerek israf edilmiş her söze arkamızı dönüp koşuyoruz. Öğüttüklerimizin ağırlığı boynumuzu kalbimize daha çok eğiyor.
Pirincin içindeki beyaz taşa dönemeyiz biz, olsak olsak böyleyiz. Yaralarımızdan biliniriz.
