A Ghazal For Zanele

http://www.facebook.com/WRRPoetry [A Ghazal For Zanele]

Someone please take this message to Zanele
“The family wants you back oh! Zanele”

A budding star in her own respect
I already miss your flow Zanele.

No matter what you should have stayed
This is a devastating blow Zanele.

I wouldn’t call what you did childish
Yet I’ll admonish you to grow Zanele.

Wait! What am I thinking?
To a man? They want to throw Zanele?

I am sure she misses us even more
Who is doing this to Zanele?

What is happening to you…
Hope no one is about to plough Zanele.

Hope nobody is standing by againt her will
To snatch – take home and – stow Zanele.

If you left this noble family on your own
Is it right to have left us so, Zanele?

Losing you – temporarily? – the way we did hurts
You are alive and sound though Zanele

Ikechukwu might never feel like telling you this again
You are lovely and comely – an enchanting beau Zanele.
