A New Dawn Flaunts A Rich Golden Hue

My poem is

dedicated to wildlife guardians worldwide. We salute each and every one of


I am so proud to be a part of Chengeta Wildlife.

We train those who are wildlife’s first line of defense against poachers and poaching syndicates.

‘We bag poachers

before they bag elephants’

Standing so tall….knotted arms reaching to the sky

Leafy canopy stargazing ….swaying to a gentle lullaby

A limitless twinkling heaven for as far as the eye can see

A wondrous spectacle…a cosmic mystery

A timid midnight moon shimmers from behind a gossamer cloud

The ghostly call of a night jar….hauntingly loud

The magic of darkness…midnight’s warmth by her side gently flows

Moonbeams caressing deep shadows with an opulent glow

Crystals of change …..sparkling anew

As the 2016 dawn flaunts a rich golden hue

Out of the morning shadows they lollop…long necks stretched up high

Rejoicing their freedom under the African sky

Yellow billed horn-bills gliding…..Nature’s call of perfection

An iridescent malachite kingfisher beguiled by his own reflection

Gigantic ‘water horse’…sentinel of the fast flowing rivers

Yellow eyed lions….their tawny manes aquiver

Stealthy sleek leopard…yellow rosettes gleaming with pride

Flight of the fish eagle…handsome wings spread wide

Prison garbed zebra….and battle scarred buff

Menacing crocodiles ….ruthless and tough

Towering giants…graceful ears fanned wide

Muscular rhinoceros….rippling with pride

Water-buck and kudu…stately in their stance

The sun burnt African bush holds the power to enhance

Magical wildlife ……ours to cherish and protect

Leaving footprints….of compassion and respect

Organza spiderwebs spun with sun glazed thread

Peace on all wildlife guardians as in silence they tread

 2015…a year full of horror, happiness and tears

A year full of courage, hope and fears

2016’s earthy breeze swirls….a heart beat of elation

Safe blessings on all wildlife….

We hold their future in our hands…we are their salvation.

Rangers Risk Their Lives

Let’s give them the skills
