She Poem

She

Who may she be?She who has captivated my mind,She who has woven my heart,And gave me immense joy under the sun. Who may she be? She in whom I find serenity,She in whom I find happiness,She, in whose eyes I see love. She, Oh! She. She who is clothed in purity,Who wears a Kongsang of righteousness,And holds […]

Kongsang Philava Oh iwui Kongsang Philava; Khina shemlo nali. Ngachanlei okathuina; Oh, nawui khamatha.

A timeless love letter

A VALEDICTION TO ROSE

In the silence of the silent night,  When the breeze is at rest.  She took her last breath with all her might;  E’er wanting her breath to last.    She closes her weak innocent eyes,  As death grip hold of her life.  Set forth a journey beyond the skies,  Ne’er to become a man’s wife.  […]

Morung: An Ode

Amidst the land of my forefathers;Stood a Hall praised for its excellence.The whites who roam our borders;Extol it greater than theirs. A hall filled with great carvings;Of horns and skulls that fills the pillars.Decorated by those dexterous hands;The hands that are molded in such Morungs. Music of different notes echoes.Echoes out sweetly from the Morung.Laughter […]

mothers day poem

A Letter to my Mom..

In thy laps, I grew, Nested in your unconditional love. Tuning into your ‘Naokhot Laa’; This still echoes my ears. You brought me up like a king, Whose every wish and whims were met. Like a bird who flew beyond the sky, Just to get a food for her younglings; You fed me. My rivers […]

Her beautiful smile is brighter than ever and her radiant skins glow like a morning sunrays. It’s been three years already since he knew her. And while he stood there at the altar, […]
