Tanzania’s Farming Cooperatives Struggle to Bear Fruit – Inter Press Service

John Daffi climbs to the top of a hill overlooking a scenic Rift Valley wall and the Ngorongoro forest, where wildlife migrates between the world famous Ngorongoro crater and Tanzania’s Lake Manyara. Daffi, 59, looks down upon his family’s farm below and reminisces about the time his father first brought him here as a boy.

“Upper Kitete was a model farming village set up by the government of Tanzania. My father received a call while he was in Arusha from his brother in Karatu telling him to apply. We were selected as one of the first 100 families,” Daffi told IPS.

The Door to the Garden #atozchallenge #poetry #art

penned in moon dust

d

entrance to another world

crack it open

songs stream through the opening

throw it wide

sunlight treasure dusts your path

go through the door

look upon adventure

don’t look back

behind you is gone

your past is a closed book

keep walking

surprise in the garden

 you are never alone

love grows here

 its fresh scent opens your eyes

awaiting spring

Poetry is the opening and closing of a door, leaving those who look through to guess about what is seen during a moment…
