Damn Divisive Demagogic Derelict

Tom Mboya Ndiege
Tom Mboya, son of Ndiege
From the craggy islands of Rusinga
--the craddle of his progenitors
He sprouts like avens in the loamy knoll
And out to the urbs he sets off his journey
A parlous journey to his martyrdom

Look him; brilliant young man
Valiantly he...Read More

Premium Member Black Powder
I lived in such a pretty home,
A spotless home I kept,
But somehow, from a place unknown,
Through every crack, black powder crept,
However much I swept.

On every step of every floor,
In every room, through every door,
Through every crack, black powder crept,
However much...Read More

Love's Blind Eye
Love always thinks it's chosen well,
Discerns no qualities to criticize.
In the loved one all is lovable,
And defects become virtues
In a lover's eyes.

To speak or write or sing of love,
A lover needs no dictionary.
The words come tripping off the tongue,
For love...Read More

The ravens come
 in a flock of dark winged hums,
rushing spatter of clustered migrations done
 hanging on the weather fluctuations spun/

Black and bold ebony swarthy struts
 large bodies birded scruffs,
scavengers of leftover seeds, treats and nuts
 bantering loud and indiscreet...Read More

Each night I wake in the same dream

Sweet and Sour Man
He makes a cradle with his arms 
for the pup to sprawl in
and languidly lets his swarthy body
sag in the rocking chair.

Something about him smacks
of black magic; maybe his eyes.
Sometimes, like an impenetrable 
wall of darkness, they could almost
physically force...Read More

Rapid delivery; no delay

Sailing on Home
While the water’s whitened waves
Flew forth fast in foamy sprays
All amidst an airy act
Blowing, blasting, beating back
Seeing swarthy, seaward sailing ships
Onward o’er the ocean dips
Upward, downward, driving days
Seeking harbors, havens haste their ways
The ships sail sure in stormy seas
Calmly coursing...Read More

Premium Member Reflections of Humanity During a Snowstorm
Bristling yet beguiling winds are
driving snow sheets through the dark,
and, secured by brick and lamp,
I draw a comforter to my breast,
one woven by humanity.

I sense that each quickening gust
is pulling through the loom of time
life's many multi-colored threads.

A hickory brown...Read More

The Smeaton Eddystone's architecture 
First lighthouse protecting navigators
Light blinking, pulsating, luminously
Loud foghorn resounding resonantly
Guides shipwrecked mariners vigilantly
Or swarthy seafarers incessantly
On oceans perilous, tempestuous
A sailor’s salvation eternally
