Charles Jagongo Poems
Beat Of Love
Drums, trumpets, jingles and Flowers, colours and A union born.
Mandela, A Star of Hope
Yes, only him and out in open Could whip up their emotions Could make fire weaves of words Sweet, provocative and with taste for freedom.
Rain, Rain, Rain!
Rain, rain, rain As kids, by then We played in pools And chased butterflies
My Love, Don't Make Me Cry
The stars are up, a spectacle of splendor The moon so clear and winks You said you'll be here And like babies would play
Key to my Heart
The smiles, like a goddess over mountain peak The smiles, that melt hearts fallen for pick The smoke, rising up to kiss clouds underneath fire
Sweet Whitney, Our Tears Roll
Breaking news, breaking mood Angelic, Whitney Houston, has left the hood Our tears roll, a voice so graceful Whitney Houston, woman so beautiful
Child, Baby and Doughnut
A penny please, Slim shaking cold fingers Stretched through the window In my face
Pearl of My Heart
The sky is blue, clouds are clear I know the stars will do the sky, Here I sit and wait, for one so dear Pearl of my heart, so lovely and pretty.
Not a stone Falling and be broken Unbalanced is this position Steadily. My desire
Me and God
Eternity is the Universe, Swaying are the leaves Rain splatters Around I see lives
Letter to my Mother
Mummy tell me, did I bother you While in comfort of your lovely womb Mummy tell me.
Song In My Ears
My heart is filled tons of laughter, tons of merriment your eyes sparkle as pearl in milk.
Bloody banana leaf, confirmation!
They had brought her here, would sing and dance Her peers would add wood to fire A night so divine, a wedding of time A wedding mark in space bound for
Burning leaves, Stinging scent in nostrils, Tender leaves resurrect on Earth.

Beat Of Love
Drums, trumpets, jingles and
Flowers, colours and
A union born.
Take my hand
Straight like a torch illuminating a stream
Appetizing as beef stew in steam
Take my hand
I’m up in universe and
Your pulse, my beat.
