Ribbon Eel

Blue Ribbon Eel

The world has amazing creatures that we barely know of their existence. We have different of them lying in deep seas, oceans and on land, amazingly, they are unique and mostly beyond our imagination.

The Ribbon Eel is one of the unique ocean creatures that have trumpet like nostrils and a lower jaw with three tentacles. Well, this sea animal has an ability to change sex nature, the male ones regularly become females. The change of color and adopting a nearly yellow hue apparently helps them in suiting in their feminine side.

How to Approach Your Goal

Ever had a target in life? Definitely, everyone has had a burning desire to own something or just to acquire a certain item or goods for some reasons. Anyway, that is the best beginning of a long and winding journey before you have whatever that has been your goal.

Approach To Your Goal
However, everything does not just come the way you want it to be, you have to give it time, energy and hope that one day, you would manage to have it. If you have such drive, the only thing needed is to have a reminder, something to keep your mind at par with your target. Nevertheless, do not give up!

Having your mind at rest, draw a simple plan. This could give you the pros and cons of how you should approach the target.While, keeping in mind that nothing is simple as it appears, give it an attempt and see if your plan might work.

If things go as planned, modify your arrangements or include other approaches relevant to your goal. Relevance matters a lot as it forms a good foundation that can easily transform into your aspiration. The hard the going, the higher the chances of reaching there!

Sometimes you may not realize how far you have pushed for your destination goal, the greatest advantage of letting the drift take the course of your trial is that it takes control of your mind and draws the target much near.

It is also recommended to keep close to people with the same goal, exchange of ideas and learning from each others mistakes could lead into achieving your primary objective much easier that having to go a long way -trial and error.

For anything to be successful, patience and determination should be the leading aspects. With these two, nothing is impossible! Just let your base be your motivation and keep in mind -hope- that success is just at the corner.

Tana Delta Fresh Attacks Claims Over 30 Lives

Tana Rive Clashes Photo From Kenya RedCross

Revenge attacks in Tana Delta has claimed 32 lives as reported by Kenya RedCross: 16 men, 5 females, 8 Children, 9 police,167 houses burnt in fresh attacks on monday Sep, 10 2012. Police and RedCross personnel on ground have also confirmed that  there is over 1000 internally displaced families. 

Who is proudly Kenyan now? Yah, I guess so. With international and local media reports of terrible happenings -massacre in Tana river delta, this is understandable as to why we are quiet now. I don't wanna think about it, but it is beyond my imagination that we are experiencing this in this time of age- twentieth century. Kenyans, does common sense ring a bell in mind? Why fight when diplomacy can work it out nicely! And over what that can be equivalent to shading human blood. This is so disgusting.

 Tribalism? Hell no! This is a minor issue boiling at the epicenter of these clashes, something big is out there waiting to be exposed. Think! Think! Think! We need non partisan leaders, good governance to distribute national resources equally, a national security council that is capable of detecting a brewing hazard before it happens and a unifying leader who feels the hearts of common Kenyans. I hate evil!

New Terror Tactics- Al-Shabaab

When Kenya government launched offensive encounter against Al-Shabaab in Somalia, the main reason was to flush out a terrorism group breeding on our neighborhood. Through this, the government had another plan to stabilize Somalia –a break through to a stable government on the horn of Africa.
Since the merge between Al-Shabbab and Al-Qaida network, there has been an influx of foreign fighters joining the terror group. This has also introduced a new tactic for Al-Shabaab sympathizers in the country; it seems they have switched from hurling grenades (explosives) in crowded areas to the use of explosives and gunshots to accomplish their cowardly acts.
What we should learn from recent attacks in Garissa is that, the terror group is now emerging with a new strategy to create enmity between Muslims and Christians. In attacking churches, they know such action will anger Christians and would cause peace instability between the two religions.
This kind of terrorism has been in the rise in Nigeria as Poko-haram terror group’s main attacking tactic. By now, it seems Al-Shabaab leaders are highly relying on foreigners to lead the way forward for a weakened group. This comes after media houses reported of Poko-haram bomb makers making their way to Somalia to join their fellow terrorists.
With terrorism on the rise in this country- Kenya, even the Mosques are not safe. We have to remember the motive of this group, they do not care about anybody as long as one is in Kenya, that becomes a target and their main goal is to cause maximum damage in this country.
They have already tested how sensitive religion issue is in Northern Eastern part of Kenya. We never know what they are planning next to cause total confusion or even clashes –religious war- in the region.
The only thing we know is they have assaulted one side. Weighing on the outcome, they scored. If my guess is right, they might do the same in a Mosque for it to be seen as retaliation attack by Christians, this would be a big blow to fragile peace between the two religions in the region.
It is good that the government has increased security in most regions in the country. As citizens of this country, we have a duty to work closely with law enforcement arm of the government for our own good.

Kenya's Politics In Question

Relating past political scenes to our current political games will lead us to discover some connections, which our politicians are using to gain fame and power, in so doing, to keep a guardian angel in their dirty tracks. 
If you remember, by the time ODM Kenya was a strong political party in 2007, Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka started some rankles within the party. This led to departure of the other members of the party to rejoin the original ODM party.

  Back to the current situation, we find Hon. Musalia Mudavadi very active in the role that Hon. K. Musyoka played in 2007. The difference is he went ahead and formed a political party to run against his former colleague Hon. Raila Odinga.
Now that we know, who caused political rankles in ODM-Kenya in 2007 by using a ‘political project’ –Hon. Kalonzo Musyoka-; it does make us think our man of the match is once more having a running project. For now, it is just rumors that Hon. Musalia Mudavadi is the one. This maybe true based on newly evolved Musalia we used to know.
There are some facts which most of us have seen, although the main players have denied being ‘political Projects’. This leads us back to Hon. Kalonzo, and how he denied claims of being a PNU project! Nevertheless, everything came to be true when he became the Vice President of this nation –Kenya in President Kibaki’s administration.
In Kenya, we lack genuine politics. Most people we love and support may be someone’s political project. We have external forces that control our politicians, and exchange of money plays a major role in this country’s politics. This is the reason why it is hard to eradicate corruption, as its roots feeds in high-ranking public and private offices.
In every electioneering year, Kenya has always had a ‘hotcake’ politician since the beginning of multiparty system. In 2002, the late Hon. Kijana Wamalwa was a man to tame, then Hon. Kalonzo in 2007, and now we have Hon. Eugine Wamalwa whom every Presidential aspirant wants to snatch, will he choose wisely?

Peace and Stability, Still Our Dream | Trifter

Peace and Stability, Still Our Dream | Trifter

The country is now green with hopes of good future harvest, not only in farming but also in restoring our nation-wide peace and stability. Here is a message to all Kenyan citizens at heart.

Through the reshuffle of politics, and keeping the game, as it was yester-years, we are going nowhere. Change in leadership is what brings about real change. Before these, let me highlight a few things that I think most of us have forgotten, but are very important facts in politics in our country -Kenya.

My Body, a Kiln of Fire.

Oh I wish medics could work,
The pain, I can't stand,
It is as if I'm on fire,
The kiln of suffering,
That is how I feel.

So bad, my days are,
Missed a lot to keep fit,
Abandoned what I love,
Still, not spared by the pain.

Do I have to endure more of these,
But till when?
My happiness is gone,
Just agony is what I have now.

Sleeping in pain,
Waking up in pain,
Dry eyes.. loveless and sorrowful,
Waiting for a better day.

My mind cannot think,
I have nothing to write,
Just listening for the pain,
That only me can feel.

I hope for a Better day,
Painless tomorrow!
Where happiness is,
As for now, just pain!

Nurturing An Ambition

By ambition, we refer to human desire to accomplish a certain goal in life.
Personally, I believe there is no life without an ambition. These can be true words for each one of us if we think over why we are alive and what expected of us. 

Life is very simple: As long as we find our centre of gravity, utilize its balance and let our ambition be our driving force. No failure would rob us success when we know it exist.

You and I have read a lot about great leaders and inventors. Their humble start- up could be unbelievable, but their accomplishment is what we should be interested in: learning from their struggles, endeavors and risks in order to maximize on our efforts for success.

Before that, we have a challenge laid out by our dreamy ambition. This dream is visionary, but for us to reach for our destined a goal, we have to keep up the fight -defeating all odds that may result from our struggles- and patient enough to avoid giving in to failure.  

Sometimes it may need us to volunteer for experience. This is the good way of gaining exposure to more skills and knowledge through sharing of ideas. Being close to people who share alike dreams, practicing and learning through experience helps one to know all pros and cons of an ambition, hence forging for a better way to avoid a backlash.

Another thing that can help accomplish our ambitious dreams is to use the internet. Here, it is good to understand that most of what we think of have been fulfilled somewhere. By researching, we may find relevant materials on the internet that can be very helpful in dealing with our indented project.

Even though some personal ambitions may not be achievable due to unavoidable circumstances, example: resources to finance the project, time for working on, etc , having patience, good research, great like-minded team and a will to succeed could make a difference. 

Believe in something even when no one else does. That is the will, and whenever there is a will… there is a way!

End Of The Animal Kingdom

By then, leadership in animal kingdom was reserved for Lions, even brought the slogan- King of the Jungle. Other animals in big cats’ family- Cheetahs, Leopards and Tigers- given ministerial seats as the remaining animals were civil servants and field workers.
All animals led their lives under rules governing the Kingdom. Punishment for lawbreakers, lazy workers, corrupt officials and cunning animals were normal occurrences and most animals agreed to such kind of treat.
Because of its vast and complicated nature of the Kingdom, it was difficult for leaders to pass judgement to those who infringe guidelines. Moreover, judgements were limited to the size of an animal in question because, a mouse’s punishment was not equal to that of an elephant. In this case, most small animals went scot-free.
Political wrangles and rebellion:
In a particular day, King Lion announced new rules in addition; he demanded every animal species to appoint a spokes leader. These were measures to keep informed also as a mean of eradicating rebels in the Kingdom.
It happened that, cats avoided King’s call and did not appear in the meeting. Only the appointed ministers were present, later sacked from their positions by an angry Lion King.
Rebellious cat’s secret meeting insider revealed the formation of a coalition government lead by the Tigers. The news spread like bush fire to all animal communities, Lions too. It was a celebration for some animals but others proved loyalty to the Lion King.
Tension spread in the Kingdom, no animal had ever seen an angry Lion King. ‘Grreeeee, Grreeee,’ the King Roared. All animals took caver. Fear, suspense, hopelessness were only feelings  almost all animals experienced.
A messenger went round the Kingdom delivering the King’s last chance of loyalty, or to face the worst.  
As immunity from the King’s wrath, almost all-herbivorous type went to the Lion King’s side, but the remainder stood on ground with their rebellion.
Split of the Animal Kingdom:

Upon this division, war broke out between the King’s loyal subjects and the rebels. Since, herbivorous animals fear wars; they provided war supplies and food for the fighters. However, food became so scarce that they could hardly get any, but the demand for food from both warring sides intensified.
Having no any other means of getting food, the carnivorous ones started attacking and killing herbivorous type for food. This infuriated the herbivorous animals but they had nothing to do. There inferiority made them an easy prey –no power to defend themselves-, they had only three options- the stronger to fight, the taller to warn and the weak to run- but their main defense was to walk in large groups.
This is the reason all big cats family fight among themselves, the lions roar when angry and hungry and lastly this is why the herbivorous animals are hunted for food & always mingle amongst themselves in large groups in Maasai Mara.

Balance Of Nature

The balance of nature brings harmony in all inhabitants on Earth. There is joy in nature outlook –blooming flowery plants, bright & happy birds of the air, sweet smelling scents of flowers, cool nice shades for people and animals- as life grows from boring days to lovely environment that every living organism enjoys living in. 

Changing weather can be equivalent to life we live. Sometimes weather goes cold, wet or snowy, other time it gets warm and enjoyable, just like human moods –sad and gloomy to joy and relaxed moments-. This is awesome for nature lovers! However, we may feel uncomfortable with too much hot or cold weather. 

This comes to my piece of reminder, in a poetic tone:

Hope At Last, Isn’t It So Lovely?  29th Dec, 2005.

Sitting under the shade,
Sheltering myself from scotching sun,
Yes! The drought is gonna end soon,
However, I just wonder when.

Winds blowing across the field,
Somehow making the day a bid cool,
Promising the arrival of a wet season,
However, I just wonder when.

As if the message is being delivered by wind,
Just like a letter of orgies,
The message is very vivid,
Somewhat, I’m hinted when.

Dark clouds seems so far,
Scattered like Baobabs in Sahara,
Wow! That brings hope for rains,
In a few days, that is when!


In some countries, there are no extremely cold (Snowy) seasons. Like in Kenya, we only experience cold and wet or hot and dry seasons. Nevertheless, balance of nature has so much to teach us, and it fun supporting nature in an attempt to bring back its former glory. BTW, it likes playing ‘Tit-for-tat’ game.

Ways Of Life- Writing Dreams

Growing up, I had this feeling that I have an unusual talent that has never run in my family tree. Maybe it’s because of exposure or chances were limited in those days, but still, there is no one picking up this #God's Gift as a way of life.

Some years back, in 1998, I wrote my first latter to Writers Bureau -by then the Company was appearing on our Daily News Papers very often- asking if they can help develop my writing skills. Months later, I received the reply latter from them, Newsletters: Fees structure and testimonies from members. How cool! That was my starting point, yet there was something else holding me back -tuition fee-.

It was a challenge that I knew I wouldn’t manage to escape. However, something within kept my writing vision in focus with hopes that from a distance lay not a dream but a reality. I remember writing this Poem as a reminder!

The New Day!   22 Nov, 1998.

Every dog has his/her new day!
Okay, I keep waiting,
For that day of prosperity,
The wail of distress will be no more,
Only joy beyond measure shall prevail,
Dancing a jig, Celebrations,
 Having the best time in life.


It happens that I wrote this poem on the day I took my first Lungful of oxygen -Birth Day- and as a day I dedicated my mind to pursue my dreams in every means possible. Until now, I do!

Life In Poetry- How To live it.

This can be a starting point or the last kick of a dying horse! Anyway, it has been time since I started writing poems, to be exact, from 1998 when I was in primary school. Poems themselves revolve under what I was going through by then, and in other times were my opinions about life. 

 I have lots of them in my note books that I want to share with the world by publishing them online, though I’m having setbacks and negative mind about the whole issue.

Writing indirect poems was my favorite style –still is- to hide my feelings and opinions behind the dark-mask from my readers and those who thought they are smart –the snoops- ,going around my back reading what does not concern them. It was fun asking my readers to explain what I meant only to realize they have picked a literal meaning of the whole thing.

Being secretive sometimes pay! However, there were days when I needed help (council) from my brother, but I did not want to talk about it verbally. In such a day, only my diary came in to speak on my behalf. Bad idea! My brother could not divulge an alluded message, so I forced to elaborate on my writings. 

Here is one of them, a 'heartbreak' Poem that I wrote before going in silent-mode for a full week.

Never Again. 6th March 2006.
 Swimming in a river,
Largely dominated by crocodiles & sharks,
Of course, I know the consequences,
Now I’m wounded.., a call for sharks
Any minute, any time they will be here.

I have nowhere to run.., barred destiny!
The only option is to turn back,
Even though it is gonna be a war,
It won’t last for long, Just a few minutes,
Then peace shall prevail.

Mistakes! Mistakes! No more,
These are my words,
For real, forever I promise.

**By waflay **

It was nice that after a simple clue, he was able to tell my hurting –though I doubt if he guessed right all encrypted words-, but it was worthy a trial and it did its purpose.
I wish to keep them coming in this style. However, I need your opinion how to publish these stories and Poems. You got any Idea that you wish to share with me; I would love to hear from you!

Our Love- Dreams Come True.

Sing me a song, that would make my heart joyful,
Invite me to dance, a love song that unites our hearts,
Give me your hand; hold me tight and let love take control,
No turning back dear, we are lovers forever,
Save your pace, for we have a long way to go.

Take me in your arms darl., and embrace me tight,
Hug me like never before, and let your mind drift away,
All these is love, plus signs of together-forever,
That only us,  can feel and appreciate!

It was an illusion of our minds, now it is the reality,
Like a tiny organism it was, but now our love is mighty,
Over and over again, people admire what we share,
Very sad! They will not feel what we experience,
Extraordinary affection, that goes beyond measure.

On a day like this, I saw you and felt it,
Nothing gave me a hint, that you and I are destiny,
Little I did, to pursue your love,
You are now here, dancing with me.., our love song.

You are my true love, the one I dreamt of,
Official key, that can access my love madness,
Unlock my true feelings, and enjoy our love life.

He Lies to Live

He was tall handsome and smart,
A smile could distinguish him from many,
But his ways of life was questionable.

He came to me,
Soft spoken clear voice,
As usual, greetings opened his needs.

A good listener, I pretended to be,
Nodding in confirmation and short answers,
He thought of scores,.. very wrong guess!

None could tell the guy was a conman,
Nothing could hint the motive of the guy,
He was just perfect, but I was much better.

His lies went in circles,
Confusion marked most parts in his story,
These made me realize who I was dealing with.

At the end he blessed me,
Walked away to another victim,
The same story..., he scored.

Love: Something Worth to Know

By then, love was not an issue, it was considered as something special for uniting hearts and people lived in happiness for the rest of their lives. However, in our current generation, love is like a spark in people's hearts -it comes in flash like thing, and so does it end-. Where did it go wrong? Be my guest!

Well, we have to understand the meaning of love and the effects it comes with in our lives. This is only a starting point to understand why it is worth living in love life, how to keep it going, and what keeps it strong in a relationship.

Meaning of Love:

According to Wikipedia, love is described as 'an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment'. However, an explanation that supports the first meaning of love is what we find to be more interesting, here it goes! ' Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection; and "the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another"  Love may also be described as actions towards others or oneself based on compassion, or as actions towards others based on affection' . Do these give us a hint? In summery, love is an endless strong affection, unconditional compassion and unselfish concern for other.

Living a love life:

Since we live in a world dominated or guided by laws and rights of humanity, love seems to come in second place in a relationship; this is the first wrong turn! Love is what brings people together, and no one is forced to stay with someone if there is no mutual connection. We are humans, we have feeling, we can adopt change -either negatively or positively-, we have rights to make a choice etc, but all these when placed in the right position at the right time would bring so much joy in a relationship and dissolve minor pains -a must- in any relationship.

It really depends on us to make a decision in our lives, either to adhere to love we have or go looking for a better greener love-life -which is actually more of an illusion than a reality-. Nevertheless, we are to rethink of the impact of our actions to our love partners, better to remember, ' Our neighbour's garden is always beautiful, but we never know how beautiful our garden is in neighbour's eyes'.

Things to consider in a love relationship:

(a) Trust- a very important factor in love relationship, for it helps one eradicate doubts.

(B) Caring- this comes as a supporting factor for continuity of love and brings a sense of belonging in a relationship.

(C) Understanding- this is the factor, which unites all other positive measures in a healthy relationship.

Global Warming!

The sun is rising high on the clear sky. Well, one would wish for some drizzles but it seems the rain has finally abandoned its daily free offers.

A day like this in early days in my life, my people and I would be indoor because of rains. Unfortunately, as I grow older and bendy, the seasons and climate changes to something unthinkable.

Should we go blaming actions of man on our planet as the cause of all these? I wish we can. However, life has to continue and what expected to us is to find a simple way to save human home (Earth).

When I was still growing -in height- our then president had a vision to safe our Country, he came up with a slogan 'Cut one and plant two trees'. As if he had foreseen the future of our country!

Now that every nation is fighting with global worming and aridity, we have a duty to make the world a better place for all generations. Reduction of Carbon emissions, good disposal of plastics & Technological rejects and working to invent greener technologies should be our main goal, whose agenda being to save our natural environments.

Industrial revolution was human's biggest invention. Having invented machines to make the work easier for people, and creation of employment hence improving human life -earnings in terms if salaries and wages-. However, something went wrong, or maybe negligence on our part created a problem for us all. We have seen where we went wrong, rectifying our mistake may take year, but it is worth a try anyway!
