Shairi
(Poem)

shairi sio mada
mshairi sio kada
shairi ni hisia
halina majibu
halina utaratibu
shairi hutekenya
hisia zilizojificha
uvunguni na mbinguni

Poem

A poem is not a leitmotif
A poet is not a cadre
A poem is emotion
It has no response
It has no formula
A poem tickles
Hidden emotions
In closets and high in the skies
