You

I see the smile in your eye
the curve of your lip.
Laughter in your step.
Joy in your life.
I see you in all.

Don’t

You look over my shoulder and say
the sea looks calm today.
What do you know of the might and fury
of the moods and swings.
Do not say. The sea looks calm today.
Swells like dunes, becomes mountain’s
and cliffs, e’re you blink.
Currents to pull you down.

Do not say, the sea looks calm today.
Ye from the land that knoweth naught
The clammy hand of Davey Jones.
Do not say the sea looks calm today.

Undercurrent s, white caps and banshee scream s
of howling winds.
Ye of the land do nor say
The sea looks calm today.

Fighting waves and suction troughs
to come home safe again.
Ye do not say the sea looks calm today.

Summer

Dirt under my finger nails
memories of planting flower seeds
colour bursts in spring
to herald in the summers bloom.

Sea and Sand

Prancing dancing twirling
Banshee Wind.
Thunder.
Lighting split
night to day
in the flash, towering gray
wave curling down.
Smashing power on the rock.
Flecks foam banished from the sea.

On the other side
sand shifting wind.
Horizontal flying
rasping pain
removing skin exposed.
Beachcomber
nemesis.
Sea, sand and banshee howling wind.

Rivers in the sky

Floating up high on air current rivers in the sky
No flapping of wings, they soar and fall
Controlled in their flight.
These knights from the sky.
Be yea Albatross or Vulture.
You do fly high.
On these rivers in the sky.

Rain

Rain drops tingling down mountain spines
The heavens open wide.
Blessing’s from the sky
to feed the earths dire need.
Come together drops of rain
flow together, become as one.
Stream’s then rivers to the ocean flow
feeding land and animal as you go.

My Way

Live your life your way.

For me the open veld or crashing waves
gives freedom to my soul
The net of civilisation’s binding strands,
cut my life to shreds.

Humans I do not trust, but animals are so pure.
To them I give my life to hold.
Pon mountain and vale, shore and wave
my soul I cast, to float free as a bird.

The Sign

Soft as the tread of the cat
the moonbeam spread o’er the veld
to gain a footing in the dark.
Glimmerings on water in circle’s ever expanding.
The owl’s noiseless flight
to surprise the unwary prey
in the middle of the night.

So is the emotion of love, silently with no warning
to ruin the single mans life.
To be caught in the web, with no escape.
Sweet the taste of love.

Memories

T’s the scent of flowers
that brings the hue of colours
to mind.
The strand of a song
long forgotten
an opera again.
A whiff of smoke
friends round
a braai
memories re-lived
of days gone by.

Life

The pain is excruciating
throbbing through your body
Blanking all thought.
Senses reeling in the mist.
O God when will all this end?

Vibrant colours floating
Music soft to the ear.
Peaceful the pain subsides
as morphine takes the stand
of life so cruel.

Beware the artifical.
Cling to the true.
Pain is the sign
that life is still there.
