Ode to poetess Paida Mudzamba
I feel renewed on this planetto find out that i am not wierd after all. I have written a lot of poems for some time now. I would write and write and no one would be interested in reading them. Then i was told about PH.
PoemHunter was introduced to me by poetess Paida Mudzamba. We live in the same suburb in Harare West, Zimbabwe. She announced on a local neighbourhood Whatsapp group that she had just published her poetry and i was like wow! . I did not know i could post my poems for review by other beautiful poets and so i joined PH and i must say PH rocks.
I have a lot of things i want to say in life but i find hardly any one listens or takes me seriously, but when i write a poem, i feel i have openned a relief valve. I like rhymes rhythms and how after you have written a verse, the words just sit there smiling at you almost as if there were created to be there. You know like;
Fellow humans i bid you goodbye
And this is not a good lie
I am leaving for mars
Taking all my scars
To live among the stars
I m leaving all my cars
Ummm...it just seems like these words are just there naturally and thats what i love about poetry.
So to cut a long story short i want to thank Sis Paida Mudzamba and all the great poets. My favourite incorrigible brothers in poetry Dillip K. Swain and arch foe Robert Murray Smith, all my Indian poets some whose names i can't wrap my tongue around, Varsha Madhulika, because her second name rhymes with mine, Lodigiana Poetess and so many more. Lets continue to joust with Shakespeare without shaking the spear.
