"... brevity is the soul of wit ..."
- William Shakespeare


Afzal Moolla was born in Delhi, India while his parents were in exile, fleeing Apartheid South Africa.

He then travelled wherever his parent's work took them and he still feels that he hasn't stopped travelling.

Afzal works and lives in Johannesburg, South Africa and shares his literary musings with his most strident critic - his 12 year
old cat.

Afzal Moolla


Hidden between fragmented shades,
mingling within the folds of thought.

Dreams ceaselessly wander on,
soaring above the day's tumult.

Hope burns the fabric of today,
as this afternoon fades.
