When the Wind Blew Me

When the wind blew meIt was a sojourn.It began on a travel with freightMy feet were almost bare on sun – baked clayMy sandals tired, the soles were but thin graftsMy water can hung like a noose,But I was home.Home amidst the black – faced Impalas,The striped horses, those whose headsBear eyes on the sides, with stumps for horns.The Jackal’s desert home. All was silent but for a short while.Then, there was a rush from the eastA wild gust had…

Picture of Messi As a writer who is enthusiastic about happenings in sports and entertainment, I would not have imagined writing on both topics so soon, let alone trying to reconcile both worlds, but for this recent occurrence that I’m about to talk about. Aside from writing, as a lover of sports and entertainment, I find related arguments interesting regardless of my stance on whatever is being argued. It was actually on this fateful day, the 25th of September when…

Todd Boehly: Chelsea’s new “kid in sweet shop.” 

Following Vladimir Putin’s decision to invade Ukraine at the start of the year, Russia has been struck with several sanctions across the financial and sporting scenes.

MATTERS OF THE HEART

It’s that time again, the season of COMUI’s favourite organ. World Heart Day is around the corner and with it comes the red and white, the heart shapes and the feels.If you’re like me, you must have wondered at least once: why so much fuss about the heart?

Grounded

Play with gravity oh childYour feet unyielding as you wade through the mire ,Your eyes fixed on the treasure you may find . Be not hypnotized by the precarious standRoll with the ton, the lot of themBut forget not to remain close to the land . Choose the way the wand might move ,To incur a curse or to be loved ,Ragged or dressed in the finest tulle. Frogs may leap all they wantFrom mire to dirt ,dirt to mireAlbeit…
