I have been writing and rewriting this post for days. No words seem to be able to capture the feeling that comes with. But as do all good things, the end for Scenesanaa as we know it has come. *Sigh!* For now at least. Think about it this way; roughly 2 years ago, we had a… Continue reading Thank you and goodbye – for now!
Yes, I have been lonely, In a crowded room, When faces were bright and smiling, I have felt the gloom, Of secrets, crushing on my heart. Yes, I have been lonely, When texts, to and fro, Were exchanged from smart handsets, I have seen the harrow, Digging out sorrow, in messages. Yes, I… Continue reading Lonely
I thank you for the mundane things, The cock that crows, the bird that sings, In mornings that days begin; The food that fills, the thirst that’s quenched, The rain that has me completely drenched, E’n in places I’ve never been. I thank you for a perfect day, The brief repose, pain kept at… Continue reading I thank you
Let me guess: you want to lose weight in 2017, or maybe just eat healthier. Perhaps you want to spend less money or spend more time with your friends and family. I know I do. Self-improvement, or at least the desire for it, is a shared hobby for most of us. It's why so many… Continue reading Turning Twenty-Five
I was hoping that this year would slide away effortlessly and quietly into the next and I would not post anything here because, well, I can. But a scroll down my timeline and a walk in the streets reminds me that I really cannot. I am no monster! So yeah, I may have quit WhatsApp… Continue reading Christmas is here again! Enjoy it. Or not.
Seated on the seats opposite the Kenya archives, at a spot directly opposite Chicken inn, one Sunday afternoon I observed people; dark people, light people, tall, overdressed women in their Sunday garb, Nairobi ladies in these chiffon tops that have refused to go out of fashion, men in shiny suits and others in casual jeans,… Continue reading EDWIN
Limited by imagination rather than experience, Experiencing life only within your limits, Pleasure a thing you do not think you deserve, Deserving nothing but to please everyone… On and on you tread the shores of life, With your broken oars at hand, Wanting nothing but your deserved pence, Getting nothing on any merits, Life is… Continue reading CIRU
She is not an open book. She is not what would be described as a warm personality especially if what you are going on is the first impression. She is rather like a bad case of malaria, terrible on all fronts except for when you get to read a book or two undisturbed during your… Continue reading ON MATURITY AND EMBARRASSMENT
The hall is quiet except for the crackles on the roof and a few foot steps here and there. I look at the empty blue seats at the pew. At the back of most of them is the inscription 'TBC' followed by a number. Those without the inscription have remains of what must have been the… Continue reading TBC 95
I had decided that I would do a balcony post. You know, sit (or stand) at our balcony during the day and take in the dust while I think of something to write about because let’s face it my life of late has been a little boring. A little short of adventure. Okay, maybe a… Continue reading Such is life
