The Literature Corner, we have been in deep thought as to how to get more people interested in Zambian Literature and then it occurred to us, why not have a ‘Poetry Friday’ segment where we get to celebrate all things poetic about Zambia so here we go:
Today we want to celebrate someone who we refer to as an underground poet by the name of Tasha Mubanga (not her actual name) for obvious reasons but you get the gist of it.
We are going to showcase in the form of pictures some of her work so that you can get familiar with her and her style of poetry so feast your eyes to some guilty pleasure and do comment on what you think about her work thus far. We can all learn from some constructive criticism and grow.
Other than this, we have other pictures in store for you that remind us of the poetry that is Zambia:
There is this saying by I do not remember who but it goes something like you can find beauty anywhere that you look or in anything meaning that there is also beauty in Zambian Literature so here we go!
Here are some pictures of the Earth, the Zambian Earth to be more specific, do with it as you wish because there are only endless possibilities here and the sky is your only limit.
So let us indulge in the scenery before us or better yet, bask in it and let our creative juices take us over as we let our eyes be our guide.
Oh and a big thank you to Ucizi Ngulube and Tawonga Charles Bota for providing us with the breath-taking pictures.
If anything, these pictures can be used as writing prompts for either a story or our main focus here which is writing prompt.
