Awaiting Death

Awaiting death.

The pastime for the aged
is awaiting death
the new frontier…
the new adventure…
be still my soul
your adventure is near.

Te Saam

Te Saam.

Ek kyk deur die venster van jou oë
diep in jou siel
ek sien my in jou kloppende hart
ek voel jou seer
beleef jou vreugde
ons is een…
ons dans die wals van die lewe saam
jy en ek…
ek en jy…
te saam …
ons paaie gedraai
verstrengel as een
jy en ek…
ek en jy…
te saam.

Life’s Ups and Downs.

Life’s Ups and Downs.

As I wandered through the veld
I saw an exaltation of Larks
it made me smile
but as I wandered amongst the rocky crags
I saw a murder of crows
and my day became dark
all in your mind
life’s ups and downs
bind your thoughts
and scramble your mind…

Lewe deur die Dood

Lewe deur die Dood.

Naak staan jy in die son
leweloos…
dood…
maar deur jou dood
gee jy lewe
termiet en boorder
staan saam
jou te ontrafel
af te takel
tot niks…
eens sieraad van die bos.

Pyn.

Pyn.

Kloppend…
kloppend…
tot ek nie meer kan sien
dit weef deur my wese
verswelg my lewe…
“O God, neem dit net weg
heel my
of kom haal my
ek kan nie meer veg.”

Free.

Free.

Relax…
slow breath…
concentrate…
until you can hear
the soft mewing of a hawk
in the crags
the whispering sigh of a tree
in the forest
the slow beat of Mother Earth’s heart
resonating in you
then you are one with Nature
free as a bird
warmed by the Sun.
Relax…

The Stance

Whirling blue
feathers puffed
screeching loud
in attacking stance
he protects…
his perceived demesne
a clear “No trespass”
sign.

The Reflection in Your Eyes.

Nights like this
I shall sorely miss
a sky full of stars
sounds of a thousand insects
and the reflection in your eyes.

Listen to the wind
whispering…

Friends

He went to fight
for the green and white
I for the green and gold
both dressed in bush camouflage
soldiers in arms…
friends…
fighting for our freedom
down from the Zambezi
to the fairest Cape
Flame lilly
and Springbok
together we stand
against terrorist
and the world.
And Lost.
