The Journey Begins Here!

Poet!K Flavour is a blog for upcoming African poets to share their work with the world. The blog features poems on Africa, life, nature, friendship, Love,...and everything that people care about.

This year, the best poems featured on this blog will be compiled and published in a single poetry book and the proceeds from sold copies shall be donated to charity within Africa.

This is a project for charity, get involved, join as a poet, tell friends, post comments, follow this blog,…take a step to solving the problems in your society….if you believe that Africa is not as it should be, join Poetik Flavor, the journey begins here!

To join as a poet and obtain blogging rights, contact the blog founder Imran Nakueira, be sure to send two sample poems and an Email Adress.

Being a charity project, poets will not be paid for any of their works published in the final edited collection. Poets with works appearing will however be credited for their work and, of course, receive at least one copy of the final publication. No poems will be reprinted without the permission of the poet. More info about the final publication will be layed out at the appropriate time. Thank you.

The Photograph

Looking at this photograph,
That we took in happier times,
I see our blissful faces,
With smiles dancing in our eyes.
My jealous arms holding you close
Like they would never let go.

A sadness surges through,
My wounded heart,
As I remember the promises
We made to each other,
And how it hurt so much
To break them.


A tear of joy glides
Folding my long face,
Into one humble smile.
Bright tender memories
Of the precious times we shared,
Find a way into my gloomy thoughts,
And I am only left with one conviction,…

Looking at this photograph,
I know,
Though time has thrown us apart
And different dreams have taken us
To different places,
There will always be a part of me
Ready to forgive…
….and Love you
