Moths to flame (by Nyibol Magok)

Like birds in a nest we would squeeze ourselves together Together in a circle, in the middle of which burns a great fire Amongst us is our Grandfather who tells us great stories of our ancestors, histories and myths. Captivating our minds and hearts as the fire warms our bodies. Astonishing stories make us wish we could see our ancestors as they lived, spoke and fought Stories whose impact brought to us the meaning of life and explanation of our origin.
