Writing soothes the soul…

I have always wanted to publish some of the poetry I have written over the years. Amazing how dreams do come true, sooner or later. Over the next couple of weeks and months I’ll post some of my favorites. Some are written in English, others in Afrikaans. Feel free to comment. Welcome to the world inside my head…

eyes

the way your eyes

search my soul,

such brown and loving vessels

i desire

sinjaalrooi…

jou lippe sinjaal rooie

woorde wat deurboor

in silhouette en donker skaduwees

op ‘n weerlose hart laat val

sonder besef of geringe gewaarwording,

verterend, skeppend, uitdagend.

jou stem; eksklusiewe handelsmerk

wat blou breek oor rotse heen

en gewelddadig, sag om my val

verkyk ek my

aan jou roes bruin hare

waarin die herfs opkrul

en saggies nes maak

in die melkwit van jou nek

waar ek my vreugde vind…
