Back Here Again by Kelvin Mpofu


I’m back here again

Where I left the chemical on the wall

After pitching a tent on the highway sideway

I’m virtually unknown and a legacy is restored

Taps now preside over boreholes

And houses have replaced tents

As the red cross stands on a hill

Side by side religious buildings of Italian origin


Obscured life manifests behind a school

Revealing a lost civilization of a bye gone era

High terrain stands all around

Bisected only by a highway and river

Supported vegetation withstands the simmering heat

As the sun manufacturers anthracite

For handpicking purposes close by……



Poem By Kelvin Mpofu ( Zimbabwe)
