Currently translating my life into poetry…

Yangairipano

Tirikungodzungaira.
Magitare anyarara.
Mhepo iya yapfura nepano,
yatonhodza nyika,
yashevedza mhere.

Nekwanga kwakanyarara,
zvanzi Nzou iripi?

Hapana angadaire,
Asi yangairipano,
tsoka dzayo dzizere,
nyika yose, dzizere,

Nzou yangairipano-
mashoko ayo
achiri kupoterera mumhepo,
achiri kusimudza makumbo,
achiri kunyaradza kuzhamba.

Yangairipano. Murikuiona. Murikuinzwa.
Iripano. Ichiripano. Mumweya.
Mimanzi. Magitare. Mhepo.
Iripano.
