Celebrating East African Writing!
I had a Desert dream…
Devouring seedless Kalahari dates!
I journeyed through a hot sand-filled stream
Thirst burnt my throat… with passions of first love dates
Tossed by fighting dusts…I heard a whirlwind scream
On vampire rocks I landed…my dreams turned to slates
Together all pieces I glued…ready for a new Oasis dream!
I had a Space dream…
Attending moon’s grand wedding in Mars!
I flew through clouds… playing hide and seek with sunbeam
Weeping rain blurred my vision of flirting stars
Bruised by floating ice… I craved for a blanket of steam
Blinded by a bully flash…a rogue thunder ruptured my old scars
My wounds I nursed…ready for a new Solar dream!
I had a Sea dream….
Swimming with dolphins amidst cheering corals!
Evading storms… explored depths starved of gleam
Hunted by sharks with blood-stained morals
Abused by drunken whales…far from rescue team
On a mucky shore my soul awoke…deformed as ghost murals
My frozen hands I warmed…ready for a new Transatlantic dream!
I had a Poetic dream…
Sculpturing lyrics of sonnets… painted with rhymes of a rainbow!
Mind hypnotized…I massaged my soul with an inspirational cream
Wild weeds of free verses broke in…dressed in rags of a scarecrow!
My pen glided in shock as a hacked classified live stream
On senseless stanzas… each reader frowned… like a broken bow
Wasted words I erased…ready for a new Shakespearean dream!
