Acholi #Uganda #atozchallenge #poetry


Kind-hearted people

displaced by war

twenty five years of waiting

 return to ancestral land

centuries of farming

the earth welcomes

dance steps echo

stars harmonize

our adopted family

Acholi – filled with Grace

Today is the beginning of the A to Z Challenge. It is no challenge to share the beauty of Uganda in particular the Acholi people (Northern Uganda). I dedicate this month of  poetry to my dear “family” in Gulu!

Everyone is welcome to join the month long A to Z blogging challenge. It’s a great way to meet fellow bloggers.

Thank you A to Z team for hosting another year!!!

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.

  1. It’s wonderful Moonie ‘to share the beauty of Uganda’ in your first posting. One can never understand the unfairness perpetrated by greed to result in a displacement of large groups of the population.

  2. Too many displaced by war, and some never get to return. Powerful and topical theme for your A-Z.
    Thanks for visiting!

  3. That is an amazing way to tell the story of a war-torn land. The picture and the poem did justice to the store. Beautiful! lines “return to ancestral land” & “the earth welcomes” made my heart filled with hope!
    Thanks for sharing!
    Best Wishes!
