Sample text

Can it disperse so quickly like winter clouds Can it wilt in midday like a flower rose Or fade skyward staggering like a smoke cloud? Some say: it’s charm Others say: it’s love for woman Whatever they call it It never ceases to be treachery A treacherous twin brother! 29 Zimpeto 3 O’clock in the afternoon It all started! Booming guns Whistles of lethal bombs Filling the air with deafening noises Making the countryside to roll and lull And bellies of the adults to shamelessly parade their gastronomic secretes All out of fear Echoes of piercing cries of agony all over Contracting the muscles of all body And twinges the veins of all head Stunned and scared The survivor of the explosions He sat, knelt, prayed For God to decide his fate The evil of weapons of mass destruction!

Some rain clouds but not as black as the ‘real’ rain clouds Northwest! Violent wind, strong Could this be a sign for the rains to cool the dry land Or a sign of rebirth Or a sign to sweep away the struggles of yesterday? I can see all singing with joy Others ululating and whistling Looking aside! The sckeptics, the so-called big brains All reluctant to join in the celebration As for them nobody knows Could this be the real sun rising to shine Or sun of the clouds, appear to disappear again into the clouds?
