The Beginning

It was empty and formless
light and darkness was separated
The First Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

There was an expanse
water was separated from water.
The Second Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

Land was separated from water
so that vegetation could grow on the land
produce air to breathe for what was to come.
The Third Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

Day and Night was separated
by light of different forms.
The Fourth Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

Living creatures formed
in the waters then in the sky
over the earth.
The Fifth Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

Man
male and female was created in HIS image
to rule over creation.
The Sixth Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.

All was quiet
all rested.
The Seventh Day.
Be it done in one day or a thousand plus years
matters not.
I Am the great I Am.

Destriers of the ocean

Galloping with flying white manes
in lines these marching gray destriers of the ocean
beware the unwary seaman
keep your eyes on compass wind and current
ere you be overcome.

Jy laat my lag

Jy laat my lag
jy my plaas in kategorie
oor vertolkte inkvlek op wit.
Jy laat my lag
oor abstrakte kuns wat net jy kan sien.
Jy laat my lag
wanneer jy
my woordwerk nie verstaan.
Nou is ons kiets.

Rain

They sailed in unison
gray ship’s of the line
ready to engage in battle,
a sudden burst of light
followed by a low rumbling sound
then came forth the splashing rain
to sooth the parched land.

ESCOM

In the darkest dark of the African Continent
there was a guy that could make light.
He was worshipped by all.
He clicked his fingers and all would jump
ready to fill his pockets with their hard earned cents.
Oh, but some connected without his consent
others pleaded poverty and would not pay.
Maladministration became the way.

E          for electricity that’s no more.
S          for sanity lost in the dark.
C          for corruption rife.
O         for others must do, not me.
M        for money that falls far short.

Blackouts, stages one to four.

The Killer

He tries to lift his head
red and blue flash before his eyes
“where am I? ”
He recalls the buzz, drinks and flirting
his faltering steps and a nagging voice.
” No, shit, I am capable of driving myself. ”
You fool, that is the wipers not the flickers
oh well no harm done.
Open road ahead
the power of the engine made him feel invincible
no cop car could catch him
he was the king
the unsung hero of the road
speed his throne.
Oh! Shit! Shit! Shit!
He was going to hit the combi
alcohol retarded his reactions.
Red and blue flashes fading.
The Killer struck again.

Twyfelaars Hart

Dis die diep blou see
die wind wat daar waai
en die duiwel wat draai.
Skommel die golwe
skepe wat glip
op die skuimel lip.
Kantel en draai
kolke wat maal
wyl dag se lig daal.
So is die hart
van die twyfelaar smart.
Skommel en draai
kantel en swaai.
Ankerloos.

Ozone

Ozone lingers sweetly
soft brushes of silent waves
mingle with the colours of early morn.
Salty mist parting
paint the rocky shore gray and black.
Little white ghost crabs
scatter movement
tiny tracks
wanderers of the sand.
