I've followed Masilo's blog "Poefrika" for a while now. He puts out some great original material that's always a pleasure to read. Case in point is a recent poem he wrote below. You can also follow him on twitter at @RethabileESL.
One day when winter
had snuck into the house,
in the shadow of the poor,
telling them with wind
how to gather at its feet
and tremble, the aged and the new
who hardly knew how to cower from the cold
for never ever having run from anything,
among them several
who deserve respect
on account of age, all
the epaulettes pinned to their souls,
winter tried to push them too
over the edge into the universe.
