Lugha Na Maarifa

Sasa kwasababu nimejifunza kidogo lugha ya pili ya ughaibuni ... nimepata hamu ya  kujifunza lugha yangu asili ambayo sijawahi jifunza kuongea au kuelewa... na mbinu yangu ni ...kutumia  mtindo mpya wa vitabu ... teknologia ya kisasa kielimu ili utamaduni  wa kale usipotee. Tukumbuke kuwa lugha ikipotea nazo mila desturi na maarifa pia.

Hebu nijaribu kujikumbusha yale ambayo sijawahi kuyanasa...kujitahidi hata kama miaka kumi yatapita.

Kwa wale wanaopenda ufasaha na usanifu... sijahariri kikamili baada ya kuadika na pengine ngeli pia hayajaambatana lakini ujumbe nimepitisha.

Basi kitabu ni hiki hapa...sijui kama ni mtindo mzuri wa kujifunza lugha yangu lakini hakika baada ya miezi kadha nitaweza kuwaeleza kama nimefanikiwa kuhifadhi baadhi ya maneneno na sentensi mapya kwa akili na baadaye kupata kuyatamka.

Gardening

This is my new garden
And a few seeds have been planted
And when the flowers come out
I will pick just the ones that stand out
Those that bring gladness and make my spaces mellow
The reds, the whites the blues the greens...
But I do not mean these colours literally
Planting and watering what I will
Tag and post what is as is
Clear the space pull out the weeds
Start afresh... new ground to till.

J.D.A ........................................

Like this definition (from google) and had to look it up after editing

mellow ˈmɛləʊ
adjective 1. (especially of a sound, flavour, or colour) pleasantly smooth or soft; free from harshness.

Punctuation Marks (...the absence of...)

All my spelling mistakes...
and misplaced and ommitted
Punctuation Marks
Repetitions and
Hesitations and
Continuation and
Stops and Starts
And breaks in
Rhythm and intonation
Between Results and causation
And Complication of chains
of consonants and vowels
processed in thought
coded in another alphabet

In the mind they float
Then some words
Mistakenly deleted
Lines lost in an instant
Were but now are not
Now searching
In the jumbled chords
There goes another lost sequence

But its all OK in capital letters
its me expressed and me at best
Me with all my selfselfness
And no.. I did not write like this in school
It was more close to perfect
...Less disjointed
But I know I'm not sitting any test
In complete sentences
But I can completely express myself
In exact thought process
With no word symbols ommitted
Thoughts in random order completed.
... uninterrupted
Mind reconstructed
Me

Silence

Silence isn't always golden
Sometimes it looks like a still place
A gently ebbing lake> but with deep undercurrents

At times
The place one is before learning to speak
Where one listens more and gets to
Build real words rather than
Stutters mumbles, sighs and clicks
vocalizations that no letters in the alphabet
can accurately depict

Silence is best observed
With closed eyes
Not needing to believe in anything
But becoming a believer all the same
that many truths to many are just make belief

Again....

Silence can be taking deep breaths
and opening our ears
Blowing our noses
And coughing our thoughts clear

Silence is like laughter
jumping on a chair
Stubbing a toe
Screaming in a crowd
whistling along to ones own music
Being well enough aware
To call ones own kind of noise
Beautifully silent

I am .......

Often we find ourselves in places where we forget... Good music to remember

...listening to this I remember my high school principal posing a question to us every week in first form during his talks... wonder how many of us might have figured it out. His question... "Who am I?" I don't think it was ever supposed to get an answer...then just wondering if one of us... (13 or 14 year olds) responded by saying "I am light" ...wouldn't that have left the whole bunch of us all too puzzled... Light!!! from where ??? ...

good music...
