Nightfall
Poem by Koffi Mtonga

The night falls from interstices of burning clouds, lumbering through the broad sky like grazing herds of sheep.
Along with it a great forlornness through the deep forests of Transylvania
Land marked by Withered Tallowwood branches, that once covered...Read More

I’m not sure what you expected me to be
What path you were hoping that I would follow
You tried to keep my spirit from wandering free
Mould me into someone completely hollow.

I’m not sure how you expected me to be
What plans you...Read More

Premium Member At The Back Of My Mind
When I go behind my mind
Am I wanting to explore?
Will I like what I find
Of all my life that's gone before?

All the things I've tried to hide,
All the choices right or wrong,
Are they waiting there inside
Like some half-forgotten song?

And there...Read More

Cross the river Charles
Steady stream of steam the bogs envelop 
Sweaty air resists your passage
Drift to town a short distance down

Woolly summer wonder wrought
All move and sing at once
A billow from his pipe
His bellow calls you up to join him

 It runs across the land;
Golden dust bunnies over wheat fields;
Wind-blown particles from the Sun dirt flows;
It runs across the land;
Brown paper packages;
Antique brass mountain towns;
Midday primrose pass fireflies; 
Soars at the cool full night moon;
Endless Dunes waterfalls aqua...Read More

Snow gathered momentum to a chorus of confusion

	Echoes of tortuous silence

	A vacuum of restless reprieve

Like moist drift sand it spread its treacherous message

	Opened trap doors of innocence

	Coalesced sinkhole’s dredged mud

Answering unspoken questions it decanted crystals of pain

	Touched sentient clouds in...Read More

A Full Moon
A full moon punches a hole in the darkness
the stairs (like my bones) creak on my way to bed
I know I shall not sleep well for fear of death.

I am greeted by a blinding new sun-
as it creeps through the...Read More

Little Horrors
Pedro was a Mexican who lived in Mexico
Pedro always wore a hat, a big sombrero
Pedro loved the sun he sunbathed every day
He tipped his hat over his eyes to keep sun-rays away

Some cheeky children passing by saw Pedro in repose

Shun us all like needless chaff

While you dance within fairy fields of your own making.

Singing birds emerging.
Pretty flowers are blooming.
Rabbits are hopping.
In spring things start living.
Nests of eggs are cracking.
Gardens are now growing.

No more poetry,
say it's not so.
How do I live not writing any more, 
no more words and stories to express.
No more rhymes,
to pass my time.
How about acrostic,
running down the side.
Free verse loved by all,
it is now all gone.

The snow lay white on Schuman lake
this afternoon. The ice
gleamed in the sun. I went to take
a picture. It looked nice.

White lay on Schuman lake the snow,
I took my phone to capture
where near the bank the cattails grow.

Then I would have taken the blow and groan

Premium Member The Third Christmas Poem
Two in the morning,
and the long drive home
from an afternoon and night
of Christmas Eve liturgies,
the air is bitterly cold
as my car and I climb
the long, steep hill out of
the Minnesota River Valley of Tears
to our home fifteen minutes away.

Beautiful world
Beautiful world where miracles begin.
World of glory, stunning nature hear her sing.
Rivers flow into oceans, creating life.
The sands hold a million crushed diamonds for us to rest.
Skies are blue and filled with puffs of cotton candy.
Birds surfing on her warm...Read More

This Is Uganda
This is Uganda
My motherland
My home that I love so much
Boom, boom, boom,boom

Who is it?
Abiriga, the yellow man

Some arrests here and there
And that’s it
He is gone

Dark lines betray
A lover's soul
Shadows cast
Within the tunneled alleyways
Hidden beneath
Sun sparkled peaks
Traps sprung in loneliness
Baited in despair's longing
Scented
With false hope
Watched over
By predatory pain

A rat scurries
In the silence.

On Pendulums And Rocking Horses History Is Made

Going nowhere closer to the sun or faster there 
When swinging pendulums from Democrat to Republican

Remains the same with nothing...Read More

Premium Member blankness
there's a quiescent muse
locked away in a poet's mind
trapped in the hush of silence
that befalls amidst blank pages

his pen sits in a well
suspended inkless of time
unable to scribble words
of romance in verses

no morning rises
risen through his mind
to brighten days
that linger...Read More
