The wind brushes through the leaves, then ceases at its own silent and slow pace. Birds chitter their way up into the sky and fade away as they hit miles and miles out. Afar, the sounding of the tiny crawling bugs on the ground depart my ears, as they attend to their many youngings .… Continue reading Stephanotis
A clear ringing of the last words you said, pull me back, to the existence, that makes me dread, of how I even conceded to the emotion of closing ties, bound to a distant adventure that we alone would witness. A space, as I call it, is where I don't draw this and that, and… Continue reading Gone are the winds
Reading connects us. It was around July last year (2020), when the thought came to me about driving people to read Kenyan works and support the unknown voices. I had initially started a BookTube channel to see that readers get to know about Kenyan authors as well as thrive in my favourite element, being a… Continue reading The Kenyan Readathon
An escape? yes. But certainly not a forgotten stain. The events play in my head continuously, like a so forgotten tape left running alone in an empty cinema hall. Hollow, empty, with no actual abode, i cling to the last of the memories hoping they would draw back, all that was. Silence, anger, with no… Continue reading No escape

Dear diary, It happened again . For the fifth time and this was the awakening I was waiting for. Yes, as I had exactly shared yesterday, it did happen.

Be kind to yourself, admist of any heavy winds that are so ambitious to push you to the ground. Be kind and steer your energies to hopefullness.
I hope you listen today,Just this once.The pain, the ambition, the guilt,Builds up like a fire mountain.The thirst, the need, the doubt,Dominates my body like a plague. Moving on won't do any good,Suppressing my dreams won't clear a thing,Erasing my mind won't bring the old body back. Listen,Just this once.I do not need the sound of your… Continue reading Nesting
