REALITIES OF WALKING INTO THE NEW AGE OF THE NEW NORMAL: Writing my paradoxical eulogy for the year 2020 (A Personal Essay by Mbizo CHIRASHA)


The dawn of 2020 rose   with rays of promise alongside a dark cloud pregnant with the   iron wind .The life sapping and hope scorching iron wind perilously strangled every corner of this our earth of God. It ruthlessly  unleashed  wings of death onto  the  brave- land, America , into the oil sodden sand dunes of Persian Gulf  to the dreamlands of  South America , Trinidad and Tobago  , Naracargua and  unto the rice fields  of the great  Mahatma Gandi ,  the supreme land of India  up to the vast rainforests of the Amazon basin , the Brazil  . It raved through the British Columbia .The dark cloud and the heavy wind screeched their fart into the holy valleys of Jerusalem, the land of promise into Teleaviv and Gaza Strip.  The Iron Wind skidded to a sudden halt in city squares of land that was once ruled by the iron fist of authoritarian fascist Benito Mussolini, into the Roman Catholic capital of Vatican, Italy. Pakistan and Palestine were not spared either, by the virulent Iron Wind. Then into Africa North of Sahara and Africa South of Sahara.

Naturalist Georgette Howington walks onto literary podium singing Earth Poetry.


I have read poems dressed in hot gowns of political metaphor. Most verses are fat with protest as Juvenalian satire is always carved onto the plaques of resistance as word-slingers spew resilience against unending earthly struggles. Poet Georgette Howington creatively changes the regular political narrative, she confidently struts onto the literary podium and her earth poetry dons green imagery. The rarity of her subject- lines is profoundly astounding given the current trending settings of pain yawn and groan. Poet Howington delves onto a unique but a special theme of environment and soil sciences. A multi-gifted wordsmith, environmentalist and conservationist. Her dictionary is in sync with natural life . We interdependent and interconnect to both earthly and water ecosystems. They play a pivotal role in our lives and we profoundly attach more value to them. Poems by Howington are gems of green revolution and glints of climate consciousness. TIME OF THE POET REPUBLIC embraces diversity of ideas, cultural tolerance, inclusivity and creativity in the personality of distinguished environmentalist, agronomist and green earth revolutionary poet Georgette Howington- (Blurb by Mbizo CHIRASHA).
