Shairi: Njigi na Njege

Standard

Image result for coconut milk

Rafiki na mnafiki, mchungwa na mchenza,

Mitiye na suraze, kutofautisha kwatatiza.

 

Mwizi na mlinzi, karibu wafanana kwa kazi,

Angali wachapa usingizi, wao wafanya kazi.

 

Mbwa na mbwa koko, mnazi na mkoko,

Wafanana sura na mibweko, huyu jasiri yule doko

 

Rijali na choko, shatashata na boko boko

Wote wana viboko, huyu huchapa yule mla mboko

 

Chuki na upendo, hii tisa hii sita

Lau basi si kwa vitendo, apokeae ajua anachopata

 

Jogoo huyu huyu mtetea, majibu ishirini na mosi

Twajuaje ngali yaini kajifungia, subira  subirini msende kasi

 

Msemaji na alojinyamaziya, gazeti na radio

Tofauti njia wanazotumiya, lao moja kusudio

 

Akukwazaye na akupozaye, huyu kipanga huyu mwewe

Asitake bali faidaye, waseme wanajali ila wao sio wewe

 

Pata vyote kosa vtote, hakuna afueni kotekote

Utu, mali si chochote, tamaa hayeshi, ridhika na chochote

 

Niandike yote nighane yote, katu siwezi sema yote

Msoma yote na mwacha yote, katu hawawezi kuelewa vyote.

 

Ukiona njigi utadhani njege, ukinjona njege utadhani njigi

Kifaa kufanana, tui na maziwa.

SHAIRI: Malenga mwaamba mwafanya nini?

Standard

Image result for POET

Mwayatamka mabadiliko,

Mwayaandika mapambazuko

Mwayaanika ya walo huko

Kwani nyie mwafanya nini?

 

Mwawasema walo juu

Mwawachoma walo wakuu

Twayasoma mno nukuu

Kwani nyie dhambi zenu nini?

 

Kukosoa na kutumbua

Kutoboa na kuumbua

Kuongoa na kutundua

Kwani nyie mwafanywa nini?

 

Mwatuhubiria ya kunena

Mwatughania mnoona

Mwatutambia zenu dhana

Kwani nyie miungu gani?

 

Yenu kalamu na karatasi

Wenu umaamumu maneno basi

Yenu hatamu kusema tu basi

Kwani mikono yenu kutenda kazi?

 

Kuandika kwa mtindo

Kunena pasi vitendo

Mkisikia tu vishindo

Kalamu chini mwachapa mwendo.

 

Malenga msemaji

Malenga mnenaji

Malenga mkosoaji

Malenga malalaji.

 

Asiende atende

Asipende aponde

Sirushe konde chondechonde

Malenga mdosi.

 

Mkosoa vyema ajua bora

Muondoa kiza hashiki bakora

Mwenye hekima hawi mkora

Kwani zaidi ya maneno mna lipi?

Machweo bandani

Standard

Vikombe viwili vya Kahawa.

Nimekimbia mbio za nyika
Nimekanyaga nge na nyoka
Nimekimbia jangwa na milima
Nimekimbia, ikinyesha, ukivuma.

Nimekwepa mishale na manati
Nimehepa bunduki kwa bahati
Nimeponea mawe ya umati
Nimejongea hata giza tititi

Nimejificha kama fungo
Nimelikinga jua kwa ungo
Nimejibanza kama panya
Nimeziba kila mwanya

Nimefungua kila mlango
Nimepangua kila mpango
Nimesambua kila ngoma
Nimeambua vingi viweo

Kumi na mbili kawika jimbi
Mie huyoo kima cha mbilimbi
Bandani mie huyo nimeingia
Kimbia kote kimbia penzi kigoni lakunyatia.

SAA YA SISI

Standard

SAA YA SISI

Chonde na saa ya sisi, teke linakujia

Chunga ukikaa na sisi, hasara takufikia

 

Kutwa bofya vya sisi, kazi watufanyia

Kucha kesha na sisi, faida watupatia

 

Jumatatu sisalimie watu, ujumbe tawatumia

Jumanne sivae hata viatu, nje kujitokea.

 

Mkutano siitishe katu, simu tawapigia

Ya nini sumbue watu, baruapepe tawatumia

 

Kitabu kwani cha nini, mtandao maarifa umejaa

Hadithi jioni za nini, kiganjani nasoma nimekaa

 

Barua anaandika nani, pepe bora na haraka charaza

Fotomi namtakia nini instagramu nimezijaza

 

Mkahawani nazungumza nini fesibuku nawapasha

Sokoni naendea nini mtanadaoni tu navishusha.

 

Niacheni na saa ya sisi, teke nalisifia.

SIJATUPA MSWAKI WAKO

Standard

SIJATUPA MSWAKI WAKO

tooth brudh

Nakumbuka ulivyoondoka

Hata hukuaga.

Nakumbuka ulivyonichoka

Hata kunimwaga

Nakumbuka ulivyonitenda

Ukaamua kwenda

Nakumbuka ulivyoniponda

Ukanita mdananda

 

Pia

 

Nakumbuka yale mahaba

Nakumbuka zile huba

Nakumbuka mapochopocho

Nakumbuka michokocho.

 

Nakumbuka ufukweni

Nakumbuka ya faraghani

Nakumbuka nyakati zile

Nakumbuka sana yale.

 

Sijasahau matusi yako

Nayakumbuka mashushu yako

Nakumbuka mabusu yako

Nakumbuka maudhi yako.

 

Sijasahau ulivyobamiza mlango

Sijasahau ulivyonikanda mgongo

Nakumbuka ulivyoning’ong’a ming’ong’o

Nakumbuka ulivyonisonya msonyo.

 

Nakumbuka zile asubuhi bafuni

Nakumbuka laini povu mwilini

Nawaza yatarejea hayo tena

Nawaza yatakuwa hayo tena

 

Miaka kenda kumi rudia

Vyote sijajutia

Vyote fanya ukijua

Bado sijautupa mswaki wako.

I STILL HAVE YOUR TOOTHBRUSH

Standard

tooth brudh

I essay a thing or two
But bitter emotions have chocked
All utterances
Am left silent as a dumb
Yet so loud in my mind
My love,
I still am not the same.
You rushed out in a haste
I remember
Yelling to me as you opened the door
That you’d be back in a while
Its now million whiles and still counting
The all-happy moments that i never
Imagined to end,came crumbling to ashes
Seeing lying there dead
Wearing my black t-shirt
Which was your favourite
You did come back as you said
But only a body and without a soul
My love,apart from the memories
I still have your tooth brush
That reminds me of every morning
Shower we shared!
I look at it and imagine you
Holding it,standing in front of
Our bathroom mirror
Ooh! What a beautiful view
Sad how short-lived our love was
Every single day without you
It’s as if am sinking amidst
The bitter waters of misery
From the unfathomable depths
Of which I should never rise again
Like a chimney casting a faint ray
Of light across the dark hall
I hope a day will come and we’ll be
Together again
Yes my love, a hope that’s what I have
Together with your toothbrush.

This poem is all written by a friend, a poetess, who we once had a conversation on the idea. I had  the idea of the title but I didn’t know what to write down at the time so I thought of passing it to someone who I believed could. Well, I must agree, it was well done.
