Rookie (Mbeya)

Countryside


Treading the road that narrows
into grey and green infinity,
while listening to a sparrow
Chirping above in the vicinity,

my contact with nature begins.

Here I put my troubles aside
in the delights of a countryside,
a paradise-like landscape
and quietly view the moonscape.

My thoughts are in wander
just like I’ve wandered the world.
I was born here - I’m thinking – and
would like to count my final days
by playing a piano and reminisce
my life with a nocturnal audience.

To fight for their country and Kaiser;
