Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls


It’s April of 2021 and Day 26 (Finale) of the A to Z challenge. This year, I am doing the theme – “Travel the World.” I am visiting countries from A to Z and presenting stories with 8 line poems.

Day 26 Country: Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, is shared by two countries: Zambia (to the north) and Zimbabwe (to the south). It’s approximately twice the height and width of Niagara Falls. It is said that the noise of the falls can be heard from 40 kilometers and the spray and mist of falling water rises over 400 meters above and hence can be seen from a distance of about 50 kilometers. For the same reasons the local tribes called it as Mosi-o-Tunya, meaning “the smoke that thunders”. The water makes a roaring noise as it falls over the cliff and down into the Zambezi River below. The waterfalls has a width of 1,708 m. The falls is at its peak during April and lowest in October and early November.

Poem:

How can one,
Honor the limits,
Give them medals,
When you know,
The more you know,
The less you become,
The more remains,
In the more of unknowns.

One fine day, nothing will makes sense. Then another day, nothing still will make no sense. One fine yet another day, we will find the true meaning of what it all was.

  2. Z already!
    What a lovely place you chose. The smoke that thunders is poetry! Maybe because of the mist that rises and the sound it carries with it.
    What are we humans even in this vast, vast nature?
    Congratulations on completing the challenge. 😀
