Yebeal Kene Ken

Enlarge poem

This is a powerful poem, about a man trapped in dreaming and contemplation of his future. The poet makes an exceptional use of imageries to explain this man’s state of mind but also his environment. The man is day-dreaming and plotting towards his grand ambitions by the cool waters of the Blue Nile gorge. The poet’s strong writing skills are demonstrated in the ways he uses the interplay and mix of words to draw attention to the complexity and deliberateness of the man’s thought process.
