Tim’s poetry premiered in the summer 2012 issue of aaduna.Here is one of his poems from that issue:
Nostalgia (For Kru town, Liberia)
I’ve only been away for two days – but I already miss kru-town
and the multiplicity of simplicity it offers;
the serenity and slow pace of existence;
the quietness of being in touch with untouched quietness;
The chaotic scream of street kids yelling at nothing in particular,
the combine screech of their scream is better
than the piercing, peace-stealing hunk of city cars;
I miss walking barefoot on sand, close to the lip of the ocean where salt water kiss my
brown feet against white earth.
I long to return to the melody of raindrops on my roof;
to the undiluted freshness of dawn
free from fumes and disturbing city smell.
