silent whispers to self
safe in my cocoon
snug
in a tight embrace
that
spins and spins
till
life transforms
the silk
of solitude
a young pigeon
nesting
with a slightly
drooping wing
tears
as his mates
follow
the tangerine glory
dipping behind
the blushing
snow-capped
Mount Kenya
stretching
it's hopeful wing
feeling
the tranquil warmth
slowly ebbing away
as twilight beckons...
majaribu means trials in swahili.
we pass through trials to eventually overcome themūüėä
the bird flew
away
with every flap
of priceless memory
drew hues
of sorrow
as it flew
out of sight
folding it's wings
nesting on
the lantern
of death
as time
rebuilds
the eggs crack
to chirp
once more
the pain away
the humid warm air blows
as I stroll
along the beach
feeling the soft wet sand
between my ebony toes
entranced
by the rich blended hues
upon the blushing sea
as the promising glory
descends in the horizon
whilst
the strong backwash
erases our footprints
carrying strewn refuse
into the sea...
the nightingale
in the
golden cage
singing his heart out
gazes
as the
dancing silhouette
of the
free birds
following
the orange rays
of
the radiant sun
daily
mesmerize!
In the heart of darkness
the seed of light is spawn
Births to life the wondrous nature
emanating a breath of fresh air
amid shoreless uncharted waters

The symphony orchestra of
Earth's musical animals
sing it's divine glory
with the warmth
of the radiant sun or
The splendor of
the moon lit starry sky

In his image
man is sired
to nurture
this pristine beauty

Resting,
marvels in awe
of HIS masterpiece
worth to love a lifetime!

Anger masks pain,
Erratically projects
        thy defense,
Pain imprisons
        thy inner being,
 Emasculates
         thy identity,
  Impoverish
          thy soul,
  A monster
         thy breed,
  No longer living,
   Dusk till dawn,
   Immersed
         in utter misery,
   A concubine
          till death do part.
