Green In The Fields

Poem By chisomo kumwanje

Its green in the fields
Birds sail high
Quivering in ecstasy
Their marvellous melodies heard from afar
I love the birding

Its green in the fields
Birds trill in the tree branches they abondoned
I saw them;
Birds of passage,
Birds of prey,
They patch on very tall trees

The fields now are greener
They continue to be greener and greener
The chlorophyll tends to be poisonous to the leaf
The stomata now very rigid
The spongy mesophyll cells closely packed
The palisade mesophyll cells very loose
The fields continue to be greener and greener
I hear from afar;
The shrill voices of the same birds,
Blaming the whole thing on the locusts...........

Lead Me Through

Lead me through a world of Mechanics;
Where metals breed love
Where innocence is so stiff to earn

Mama Meets Mulopwana

A melodious dawn
Caped in saw-dust
Morning stars riveted with thorns
The faces too cramped

When I'M Gone

When my time comes
An angel will appear on my bed
And fool around
He will take with him

My Rosa Sericea

Tears have grown thick muscles
Eyebrows rose to thy heartless hints
All for a love that never melts
Kindly hardening a tender loving heart
