THIS KUMVANA RETREAT

We came as individual islands
…and formed a nation
Holding hands of countries far and wide
…through play and laughter
…on the pate of Naivasha
Naivasha,
Where freedom is like breath for every living being
And opinions are affordable
…for each and every soul
Kumvana,
…a nation of unity and understanding
…knowledge sharing and bonding

II
I saw them all
…the good that added on privileges
…sandwiched by care and love and talents and greatness
…garnished with passion
Even the homely birds
…have spoken of our token of strength
…through their kwaa kwaa
And nature has shown us its beauty even in its wild
Kumvana,
…a nation of unity and understanding
…knowledge sharing and bonding
