What does "Anwo pa desann, anba pa monte" mean? Thank you.

Anwo pa moute, anba pa desann
Nothing’s moving (as if at a standstill).

We also say:
Anwo pa moute, anba pa desann, Ti Mari rete rèd
Anwo pa moute, anba pa desann, Ti Mari rete tennfas
Anwo pa moute, anba pa desann, nan mitan rete rèd
(same meaning)

A somewhat literal meaning would be “nothing moving up there, nothing moving down here and it’s also stiff in the middle :)
