Rwanda 1994

The Kagera River rises in Burundi blue
It sweeps down from the highlands green.

But then why the river runs red?
Why does it look so sinister?

It hauls the bodies of the dead
Its currents carry your sister.

The Kagera River rises in Burundi green
It flows wild to Lake Victoria blue.

But then why the river runs red?
There is no change in the weather.

Yet on the waters float the dead
The currents carry your father.

The Kagera River rises in Burundi white
It drags trees and elephant grass green.

But then why the river runs red?
The day sunny like another.

Yet the streams tow and haul the dead
The currents carry your brother.

The Kagera River rises in Burundi blue
It flows through Rwandan gorges green.

But then why the river runs red?
Why does the village camp smother?

It hauls the corpses of the dead
The currents carry your mother.

Million Dreams In River Bhogdoi

Million dreams in the river Bhogdoi
Listen to the river Bhogdoi!
she is singing like in ancient Greek drama- a parodoi?
The descendants by the river the soil and its nature,
The piece of music she plays is of your Life and culture!
She has written the lyric for her own song,
It tells your happiness and pain for long!
Oh River people! Your actions remain concealed and secretive,
experience of Bhogdoi makes you more resourceful, more creative!
The Egyptian civilization grew on the banks of the Nile
River Bhogdoi carries the story of cries and smile!
The story of a freedom fighter or a dancing monk of Majuli,
River knows their story of joy and sorrow equally!
She sings love and tragic bihu songs of Malow Pathar at rise and fall of life,
Farmers bumper rice production since time immemorial, sometimes river's strife!
she is a witness to Burmese invasion and the Moamoria rebellion,
She flows strong despite the severe infighting of millions!
She speaks suzerainty of her people in the valley,
Happiness and worries, unification and separation valiantly!
She was offered religious meal to change her name,
The shame and hesitations of first attractions are spontaneously inter-woven!
Her haunting beauty is the inspiration of Aainaam, Biyanaam, bihu and Oinitom,
Her water is used equally in birth, death, wedding and ceremonies perform!
Millons of dreams reside in this river Bhogdoi,
she is singing like in ancient Greek drama- a parodoi!
(By Mr.Monoranjan Thakur, Nongrim Hills, Shillong)

*the Memory River*

The memory river painting all of our memories *
Together we passed all of heart solitude*

Followed swift the life flow*
Hoped we love never death*
Constant we needs wrote the story*

The memory river was the picture we have long hopes*
Where all followed the lines of the Lord*
We said was together we have the sorrow*

We said was broken become two*
I'still remember we have ever sitting near in the silent river of silence*
I'still remember we have conscience crying*

Your conscience always said*
Where i'saw sincere from my heart eyes*
The memory river flowed heade the area ocean*

The memory river never dry forevermore*
I'need we said like the river memory*
Never dry we love forevermore*

Mountain Peak

We came together on the highest mountain on this earth.
As years went by we separated into rivers
from the tears this mountain cried.
We all fell into different rivers flowing though
forests, rocks, and waterfalls.
No matter what season we came across
we continued flowing.
We are rivers that started in the mountains,
and rivers that separated as we went through
many waterfalls.
Sometimes we travel together,
and other times we travel alone.
Always remember that these same rivers
that travel many miles through the earth
are once again together when it reaches its final destination
the “Ocean”
So, rivers that started up high in the mountains
and then separated are united
again as a family.
