Spotlighting Pan-African Poetry

Biography

Enlarge poem

Nothing seems sad and grey
while gazing up into the sky,
my thoughts have wandered far;
Sure i saw the rising moon
but
why does love distract my thoughts?
disordering my will!
I’m like the pattern on the cloth
all in confusion still.
Left in my lonely plight,
Is this unending night?

Fikir Kiflu Adane

Featured Poem:

Before you are gone

Enlarge poem

Thoughts are turning in my head I wonder where peace went
the charms which once we prized so much,
are also on the wane!
In me all that heat is steady
it’s you whom i do adore
in me nothing is faux
you mean so much to me
But i have to tell you some more your devotion has gone off
tenderness has evanescence
i guess our love is lost
i have started to feel blue
better is to be alone!
