African flies make it all too clear
Safari buzz is near...
A continent no luxury
To domesticate its giraffes and steer-
Plows mud enclaves
As the storm leers

Yet full of good cheer
No worries-
Especially in Kenya

We're all out on loan
To the universe
Let's see what we do

America girl loves Kenya boy
It was love at the start.

Not even the distance of their countries,

 could keep them apart.

Their love climbed many mountains,

and swarm the sea.

Too bring their hearts together,

like a contiguous disease.

Love Deborah...

Bloodied  but not 
down,    red the colour of 
our flag, risen at dawn, to 
build under the sky,  a 
nation under the stars, 
tears flow due to the 
loss,    of the ones  we 
love,   the sons and 
daughters,   forever we 
are one.

Summer of the North
I look at the mist and gloom 
and I'm rapt in thought of
the northern summer
for though I stand on the equator
For that is my station in truth
Yet this is but cold and misty
For if the truth be told
That is how things stand here
On the slopes of Mt Kenya
In the hot summer of the north....

                                    LOVE THOUGHTS AT DUSK

                                         Bathing in twilight
                                    recollections grab my sky--
                                          indigo captive

The setting sun smears the western clouds orange
Africana sunset hue
A Full moon rises on the east
And steals its way stealthily up the heavens
A portable portrait in the vaulted skies
A silhouette painting of a nursing mother
Playing hide and peep between the clouds

             WINDOW PEACE

Bird darts
Behind the blankets and the sheets
Crushed hearts
Tear holes in lives that once were neat
Day shines
On grieving heads too sad to lift
Life that adapts to steely gifts
Moon glows
To ease eyes on a broken place
     I’m told
            My endless peace rests in your face

Lush green fields cushion diamond skies--
Cattle rustlers burst through night
Machetes swinging like a game 
Mid spring blooms whose scent delights

Rifles slung like children’s packs
Hug shoulders that should lie abed
Blood trails flow moonlit from stealth feet
Leaving sixty sleeping people dead

kenya my country
It seems so far yet so near
we must get there without fear
this is something we hoped each year
and now at fifty years we still must steer
to build Kenya our country so dear.
fifty years we are not still at pur
But look back and see we are from far
we have wanted always to shine like a star
and in our effort us nothing is going to bar
to build Kenya our country which is so dear

We are one nation, one blood,
In times of sorrow, we calm each other,
In moments of horror, we cluddle together,
When we slip on the way, we hold each other,
When terror strikes, we defend together,
We are one nation, one blood.
We shed it for each other.

(Dedicated to my beloved Kenya in memory of Westgate attack. In times of difficult we have proved our unit and boundaryless love - God bless Kenya)

Ndege ya unyanyapaa inapaa,
kila siku ni balaa.
Hamna kazi,
 swali hili ni wazi.
Haya sio maneno tu,
bali ni kilio cha waja.
Wengi wanaodhulumiwa,
kilio ni cha haki!
Tumechoka na uhuni,
unaokiuka kanuni.
bei ghali!
Maisha yetu yamo mnadani,
dalali mate yanamdondoka!
Sisi sote ni binadamu,
ni wakati.
tuimarishe nchi yetu.
ni yetu sote.

ROMANCE light thoughts acrostic

Rarely do I find a fragrant love note at my door
Often when I read of love I want to try once more
Maybe golden dalliance is lurking round the bend
Always I am hunting for a lover and a friend
No one should be lonely-- that is what I’m told
Carelessly we treat the kind & hanker for the bold--
Excitement may be nice but I want hugging when I’m cold

Peace Cry
The cry for peace
The pain of innocent blood-flow
The perplexity of having a tomorrow
The losses of our loved ones
The moan and grown for our life security
For it is a new Kenya
Where me you make no sense in a sapiens mindset
Brotherhood a word that lost meaning
Kenya only means boundary to them
Does guilt eat up a mans mind
Does the scene of a cold blood offer a crown
Or is it all under the so called cartels?
Am worried....

         MEN OF GOD

Kenya is a Godly nation
Check on any TV station
Starts at dawn and goes all day
Teaching people how to pray

Then at night it's shilling serious
With the watchers drunk –delirious-
If you want the chance to pray
First you get the chance to pay

“Men of God,” my colleague swilled--
“Deserve a special God-rate bill.
When I do a job for them
Charge them twenty not just ten.”

Morning about talked,
Every household forward looked to,
A country full of political parties is it,
My family we walked to poll,
Stood at all angles,
To give a tick to several faces,
That focused to see our tick,
To elect a new era,
Young all established,
a new rule- constitution,
Prayers marked,
To a peacefull voting,
Kenya it is,
Each tribe looking for there own,
How I payed that God intervenes,
When my country shall vote as one race,
One culture, and one people....

Premium Member In Memory of 148
148 students killed in
a stunning attack at Garrisa University College in Kenya.
You were my friends
we never met

148 innocent young men and women
each with hopes and dreams
extinguished like a candle, in a patch of early morning light.
This can't be happening

148 individuals
each with families and friends
names and faces
stories with details and beliefs

You will never read these lines
about you. 
148 Christians executed.
Martyred in a majestic silence

MISS Kenya 

she is one in a billion coz a million is not on her level

no word can describe her coz she puts me above the see level

i even don't know what to call her coz beautiful is her first name 

in beauty she got no competation she is a couch in the game.

she don't make headlines she is the headline

when she moves she makes everything stop like she is a deadline

she is sweet when I got no stew with her wonna dine

coz every thing she got is so divine.
