Mulanje Mountain


The flavour of mount Mulanje grins
In the thick of low clouds it grips
The palace of peace wrapped in sighing love
While species of birds, fly in amazing gaze

And up the thickest sleeps the king of the game park
As the spirits welcome new comers at such traditional table
That table of flavoured soup
That sinks in the touring level
The mother's love that hisses
The great ancestral home

There, Sapitwa wears on a frozen dome
and comes out like a cursed torso
that leads height of the time
above nobody's reach

Here mysteries of the land
hide and settle
As it provides unit scorees of running noses
The spirit drink and dance
Adorned in odd shaddows of humanity

Mountain of hope to run ancestory life
In the midst of our political rife
For we are no more ignorant of
your kingdom
That elevation of hope
of pride

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Mulanje Mountain is found in Malawi and is the second largest in Africa. Alot Happens at the Mountain, there spirits the welcome people with a delicious food, people just disappear if they do not abide by the rules and found dead. Each and every time you are there you will hear whistles, people laughing, people pounding. These are not real people, they are spirits. For us we say it's asource of money, asource of tourists attraction. To others it's a mystery, mount Mulanje

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
