Tambaya’s Wonderland Travel

Tambaya’s Wonderland Travel

Desperately in need of peace.

Crushed, locked up, fearful

Down the high street of wonderland

Tambaya’s flight took off.


Dancing to the music playing but in her head

She drifts, back and forth

Wowing at human inventiveness

Round the clock she recounts a time past.


Desperately in need of peace.

Countless times, she traveled this route

Exploring the pains, the bickering, the uncertainties

Searching for answers

Hoping, hoping and just hoping.


At launch time she met Imade, digging it for the trophy

Stole some tricks from her leg work

Rhythm and lights dictates the moves.


Wondering which hairstyle will heal, she waited hours at the salon

On the third braid, realised her extensions sits on the dresser

“Imade, do you have this shade of gray? No!”

“Can I go back for mine? Ah! No you can’t go back!”.


“I get it, the time and travails

What is my fate now? Take it off!

No! I will turn it into a PB, a Phenomenal Braid” grinned, Imade.

“The pretty, the ugly, the great”

“You will love it, it is my signature style.”

Woven as one?

No I don’t want!

“Yes! You should let me, please 🥺” Imade pleaded.


Imade!, take this your Phenomenal Braid of

Give me my cornrows

My journey is still straight, through the green plains

I just want to go away.


Finally, beyond the deserted cliff,  lay the Magnificent Yard

A mystical place

Uncertain, Tambaya sighed anxiously

Choky and fearful, she prepares to bid her shuttle farewell

And in tears she remembers to murmur “Lord have mercy!”

Hoping, hoping and just hoping.


“Oh! How dare you thunder and lightning

Invade my privacy.

Tambaya made frantic efforts to restart the shuttle

To the fairy place.


“Oh! No! My shuttle is on fire!

How will I get to the wonderland masterpiece mansion?” Tambaya cried out

Could I have been wrong?

I was so close” Tambaya mumbles.


“Be still! My peace I give you!”

Who are you?

“I am the I am, that I am”

“The beauty for ashes giver”

The Lord your maker, your provider

Your healer…


Wow! What an absorbing atmosphere, wisdom, illuminating the mind

Angels ordered at my service?

Why won’t you let me slide into the mystic mansion?

“Will I ever need that shuttle again?” Tambaya hysterically asked.


“You won’t be needing it, see all I have in stock for you” the soft spoken voice stressed.

Hmmmmm, an all-encompassing peace and gifts

All these for me?

It is really beautiful here, stated with a sigh.

 Peace beyond comprehension, beauty, joy and grace:Peace beyond comprehension, beauty, joy and grace:

I made to say but the euphoria of sound rest took off already

Once again, I know the meaning of all-round rest mumuring, Tambaya sighed Peacefully, tucked in the hands of His grace as she sleeps.
