Spring - a poem by Jam es Mui ruri
On a bus window
I look to the world under the sun
The sky is crystal blue
And overlooks the clouds below
Hanging heavy and low…
Underneath stretch the greens
Surrounded by beautiful trees
The flowers blossom away past the horizon,
In the midst crosses a lonely railway
And the sight captures a moment
Too overwhelming to say…
As I watch the true picture of nature,
Along unfolds the perfect setting of thoughts of my
I know now that…
Away from life’s daily struggles,
Of failures and enduring endless hurdles,
There exists colour and beauty
And this world is colourful and beautiful
I sit on this lonely bus
My mind shifting across time..
To the past, back to the bus and to things to come
I know the bus will slow down
And come into halt¬
And I will come out and disappear in the streets
And melt in city life’s heat
My soul will revert to the small fraction of life
Insignificant from the skies..
-Ja mes Ng'a ng'a Ka riuki Mu iruri
Its still not real James. Its still not real.
Theres so much I want to say,so much to say that despite differences, you were truly a friend and I loved you.
Your time on earth was well spent, you were a blessing to many.
Thank you for being in my life, I feel honoured to have known you.
Love you and miss you.
A Ngethustar extinguished too soon
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves,
We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.
We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.
Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.
We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.
Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.
