Dear future boyfriend

Listening and watching  Diamond Platnumz song,( nasema nawe )makes me realise that Africans were twerking long before Miley Cyrus came up with that name twerking somehow. He is a talented musician in East Africa and Africa at large and I am always looking foward to something new from Him. African kind of dancing, though at … Continue reading Dance

The Jumbos

I  am  four years old again and a herd of elephants has  crossed over the stream. The screams and shouts of the villagers wake me up from my sleep, and I can smell old car tyres burning. The villagers descend upon the jumbos, singing, yelling as if in a trance but keep a safe distance … Continue reading The Jumbos

Drip after drip Trickle after trickle Drops of water join To wash away dirt and fatigue Standing under the shower She thinks of the lecturer that didn't come The afternoon sun scorching at its best Seemed to be in cahoots with the lecturer No one wants to walk a long way for nothing One can't … Continue reading Shower

Mind In Delirium

Meenas Poems

deliriumA mind which cannot rest at ease
involves itself in gossip limitless
talking ill of others is one way
slandering unmindful is another way.
Why and what makes me do so?
makes one wonder ever so.

That mind should be extremely disturbed
with issues that keep it constantly perturbed
either by a heavy irrevocable financial loss
or by erroneous repeated flaws.
The monetary part sends a shiver
while the mental agony sets in a quiver.

Talking incessantly about a person
whom you do not like for no reason
impressively tells that you are jealous
of he being progressive and prosperous
and wish to inflict a dent to his image
by reversing his trend by a senseless barrage.
