Kemunto

written by: Daniel Gekonge

@Dan_Gekonge1

 

I want you to touch me
Like the sun does to the trees
So that I can shed off every garment

I want you to touch me
Like the moon does to the seas
So that I can dance with waves in torment

I want you to touch me
Like the sea does to the shores
So that I can feel your scratch in a moment

I want you to touch me
Like the plain does to the skies
So that I can look up to see a sky so inclement

Kemunto,* if you touch me
Like the snow does to the plains and the seas
So that I can fall to worship you; it'll be an elopement!

 

*  Kemunto - a Kisii (African) name that is common amongst many Gusii speakers (bantus)
