Kwaghkule, Jacob – Contributing Editor (Poetry)
When the lightning smiles,
let fear not boil your blood
for my voice will be deep in the thunder scream,
give ears when the cloud gets shadowy
and the rain is dancing on your roof,
listen to the wind when the trees dance
look beyond the wave of the oceans
as it chases itself off the shore,
for my eyes will be smiling in each tide
when the sun oozes down the ocean,
as hummingbirds sing lullabies,
as the wind stands still,
listen to those lyrics
from the sounds of crickets beneath your window
for I’ll be flying on the wings of a butterfly
listen to nature
for I am in every sound you hear.
to paint your heart with kisses,
