Biography of Gaylord Munemo

Preface

I, Martin Musasa do appreciate and honour this privelege of being granted the autonomy to give an express manifestation of the prelude to the copacetic and applausible diction of the Lovers Voyage book of love poetry by a brother and a colleague, Gaylord Munemo. Gaylord Munemo has an excellent lexical expression which I personally credit and adorn. His words can make you smile, laugh or even shed a tear. This book has typical magnificence in it and carrries all the elements of brilliant poetry. I have known Gaylord Munemo as a skirmisher of wit and as a role model to many, I can trace this to the period in time when he was President of Mucheke High Debate Club and Drama Club to the moment he was appointed Captain of debate team Masvingo Provincial team and lastly his enrolment in the national debate team where he proved to be a guru and skirmisher of wit. A round of applause I owe to Gaylord Munemo for his outstanding collaborartion with Fihijin that got merited and awarded in 2010. His poems in this book are love personified, a reaction to love, be loved and to leave. He defined love in a way that makes one ponder more about the phenomenon. His verbatim was highly remarkable and outstandingly credible. The verisimilitude found in the diction of Mr. Munemo can sooth those even relegated in the periphery of love in rememberance soliloquise and abject solitude. His method marks a great epochal departure from the classical poets he himself was inspired by, Nikki Giovani, Ezra Jack Keats and Edmund Spencer. His perculiarity and uniqueness attracted my best regards in the realms of the poetic world. The hilarious dynamicism reflected in the understanding of love in the Munemonic expression was simple, less sophisticated, free of complexities yet highly rich in immediate meaning and easy interpretation. This book shows how poetry in modern times can be witnessed as an immediate replica of fine art and not mystified and meaning hiding phenomenon. It is in this piece of work that Gaylord Munemo has examined the paradox of love within the paradigm of poetry. I credit Mr. Munemo for taking Zimbabwean poetry to a higher level even in his collaborations with Donald Kuutsi and Miranda Mabuto. Hopefully he will develop in progressive movement in all his poetic endeavours to reach the climax of all his hopes.

Oblivion

Watching the rain fall down through my window,
I wonder, will i ever be your hero,
I see your hero in the mirror,
I close my eyes and take the pillow
My pride i swallow, love never narrow,
Dont attack me with the arrow,
Lest she becomes a widow

I shed tears in sorrow,

[Hata Bildir]
