total blackout…

street lamps glow with

mating fireflies

Name: Ali Znaidi

Country: Tunisia



the morning rain falls

endlessly hugging thy sleep

frozen ideas die


NAME: Andrew Herbert Omuna

Country: Uganda



the wind plays

every tree sways to its song–

nature’s musical


Name: Praise Osawaru

Country: Nigeria



delicate mounds

parting soil in the night

to die out soon

Name: Akello Charlotte

Country: Uganda



ringed with its papers

and tracked like jailbird on bail

the immigrant lands…

Name: Adipo Sidang’

Country: Kenya
