Fritz - Sept 2010

eyes
big
round
hopeful
pleading
watching
my
every move
as i eat
the last bite
he licks his lips
tail twitches
who could resist
good boy
I say
as we go
outside

Scents

Scents

scents…
pleasant memories
of times past
caught on the breeze…
talcum powder
sweet milk
babies’ breath
mother’s faint perfume
dad’s aftershave
close friends
departed
waiting in the light
watching this life
play out

Brain Freeze

Brain Freeze

The white screen stares back
Willing me to type a song;
For me to sing along
But the words won’t come.

No brainwaves or inspiration,
Conscious thought, or revelation;
Might as well be brain dead,
With nothing in my empty head.

My muse has gone, deserted me,
Left me alone in my dire need
To struggle along
As best I can without a song.

Johannesburg – Overview

The skyline of Johannesburg\’s Central Business District as seen from the observatory of the Carlton Centre

Johannesburg – Overview

Jo’burg, City of Gold – Egoli,
Home to the very rich,
Home to the very poor,
Hub of the country’s economy,
Crime capital of the country,
To the rich it is a City of Plenty,
To the poor a City of Dreams.

Feelings of anticipation, animation, stimulation,
Restlessness and tension;
Both good and bad vibrations, sensations;
Hustle and bustle seven days a week,
No time to lose, whatever you choose;
Sinning and spinning day and night;
Cloned cops on the streets, who can tell what’s real?.

11 Diagonal Street, designed by the famous German-American architect Helmut Jahn and built in 1984

Where are the Bees?

Where are the Bees?

Three years ago I planted a little nectarine tree
Which flowered in the spring and was beautiful to see.
It bore four nectarines – just perfect for me!
But I waited too long to pluck them off the tree;
The nectarines were gone, the birds had been there first,
And I was quite left out as they feasted on the fruit.

Since then the bees have vanished from the scene!
The next two years brought flowers but no fruit
Which portends a time of famine and starvation;
Our land, in days gone by a land of plenty,
Could now become a place of want and apportionment
Unless the situation can be healed.

Was he the One

Was he the One

When I was young and innocent
I met a guy who seemed to be
The answer to my dreams,
And now I’m wondering
“Was he the one?”

Looking back it seems to me
All was not as it appeared to be
And I know the truth eluded me
Because I did not want to see
That he was not the one for me.

The years went by and he was gone
And, despite my knowing
He was not the one,
I mourned his passing
Like that of a friend
Whom I loved and pitied in the end.

Now in the dark of night
Alone with the stars and moon
I lift up my face and blow him a kiss
On the breeze, for what was
A dream that we shared
Which failed to thrive in my barren heart.

We fit Together

We fit Together

We fit together
Like a knife and fork,
Bacon and eggs,
Salt and pepper.
You and I are akin:
Two sides of a coin,
Two halves of a whole,
A fruit with its skin.
We think the same thoughts,
Dream the same dreams
And, strange as it seems,
Destiny has never
Brought us together.
