Jou Hardesool Stap

Jou Hardesool Stap

Jou voetspore stap ‘n pad deur my hart
wees versigtig waar jy trap
die paaie van die verlede is nog rou
jy vrou van my verlede maar tog ook my hede
jy vrou van my hart
met jou hardesool stap.

Lappieskombers

LappiesKombers

Jy lê knus toegevou in jou lappieskombers
botterblomgeel en sonsopkomsoranje
blêrtse pers met groen omsoom
rooi en bont jou rante gekleur
blou met vlieswolkies die lug
ja so vêr as die oog kan sien
Namakwaland getower na die reën.

Jou Spieël

Jou Spieël

Jy dra jou spieël voor jou uit
jy sien jouself
maar nie soos ander nie
jy bluf jouself
soms…
dalk ander ook
maar nie altyd nie.

Die spieël kan breek
aan flarde spat
splinters jy
hoe gaan jy al die stukkies kry
die spieël herstel
tot weer volkome jy?

Doubt

Doubt

In the flicker of you eye
I saw a shadow of doubt
it fell heavy on my heart.

Verbeelding

Verbeelding

‘n Borrelende bron van kennis
tyd-masjien van die hede
toekoms en verlede.
Vertel van die Kind se geboorte
sit in die stal
deel in die engelesang
of dit is in Desember
of Maart is nie tersaak.
Die ou man
met die spierwitte baard
wat jou nooi vir ‘n kuier
in die noorder pool
is dit waar of nie
maak nie saak.
Sien die stok
dit word ‘n magiese swaard
die helder-kleure-blom
jy, ‘n fee-prinses
laat jou stom.

Knip die verbeeldingsvlug se vlerk
kokon die kind
in grys-modder en roet bestaan
ontneem hom sy borrelend tyd-masjien.
Jy behoort jou te skaam!

The Scream

The Scream

It echoed from the mountains
over glen and vale
across the seven seas
from continent to continent
those that heard
were few
those that didn’t
it past silent like a sigh
into the uni and multiverse
to bounce off planets and moons
to be absorbed by suns and dark holes
to be kept for lightyears of time.
T’was the death cry of a planet
our very own earth.

Send of the Sea

Send of the Sea

The bearded waves
whispered past the hull
flying fish displayed their agility above the water
patches of men-o-war drifted past
oh the smell of the sea
it is where I long to be.

Laagwater Plesier

Laagwater Plesier

Seebamboes lê gestrooi
vertel van gister stormweer
guitig skarrel spook-krappies
heen en weer
borrel sand waar slakke skuil
Bloublasie trap
kinderplesier
op laagwater vlak.

The Spark

The Spark

Our eyes met across a crowded room
an instant spark
without touching we knew
no rational
no logic
but we knew
how is this possible
this spark…
this feeling…
And we knew.

Memories

Memories

If you look across the river
the great Limpopo river
you see a land that used to be
a land once free.

If you look across the river
the great Limpopo river
from the land that used to be free
you see a land that stretches to the sea
a land also once free.

Oh Africa what have you done
once wild and free
how you fell
lost your splendour
to the wannabees
now you only live in our memories.

But
I guess it is time
for the young ones
to weave their own memories
in the lands that once used to be free.
