Kijiweni
(At the Rock)

jiwe haliishi
jiwe huishi
milele, daima
jiwe la kale, jiwe la juzi
kokoto, vijiwe, miamba
hukutana, hubusiana
ya Kijiweni
ujiweni hauuliki

~~~

At the Rock

The Rock never ceases
The Rock exists
Eternally, forever
The Rock of times gone by, the Rock of the other day
Pebbles, stones, reefs
meet, kiss
in Rockhood
Rock spirit can’t be extinguished
