sudden trees


so sudden were the trees
they too searched the sky bend
in groups of solitary living
i who have nothing left
stood within them
and thought of the dried river
and its soil brittle amongst
stars at night
did i disappoint u
did i fail to answer
did the sparrows wait long
did i touch your hair
and yes again
and that was just not loving
years after the trees
grew wild and so did
a blatant sky
a far window to
your once home
still remains closed.

mdantsane far off


far off from mdantsane
the hills rose in unison
over another thought
the earth here is a mere straggler
memory is bestowed
as unseen remains the fog
and our meeting in distant

a train seems to have
left from somewhere
