The dew of a single gingko leaf
I will search for you through 千 worlds
and 一万 lifetimes until I find you.
The way forth faced within.
In the rush of rolling currents;
In the quiet ease of colored grass
and golden patterns paved.
An instant more, the slightest tip
touched one platinum leaf; peculiar.
Twirls in twos, it twists;
like the eyes of a curious child
monitoring the boat drift and drift
away to the belly of a thousand waves.
I will wait for you in all of them.
Bongani Zungu/Singular Poet is a South African Poet.
He threads his words with the intent to reveal the subtle sophistry of knowledge and what he believes to be a hidden expanse of human experience beyond just love in a simple, relatable way.
Often using short sentences and fragments skillfully, which then contribute to the rhythm of his pieces, his poems touch on a number of themes guided by life experiences, investment in knowledge, awareness of changing times, and a sense of imagination.
Bongani Zungu has had his work published in Poetry Soup's second Anthology of Contemporary Poetry from Around the World, PS: It's Still Poetry, in a number of online magazines and journals, and Waldorf Stories - in honor of the Waldorf Astoria's 90th anniversary on Park Avenue.
