The Month of Mango

by Aiko (Dreamsurfer)   May 11, 2021

The fifth month is always special in Arua,
The Sweetest Place on Earth.
It marks the end of spring,
With mangoes ripening.
I feel it should be renamed to the month of Mango, not May.
That would be Mengu in the native Lugbara language I must say;
So a-May-zing!
Harvest fresh maize at the end of May and the month is full!
