Veld Fire

.

Skin crackling crisp

Blackened, peeling,

Exposing raw tissues

New life, new blood

Sanitized, purified

As the fynbos* renews

Year on year

And we watch

The regeneration

Following

The degradation

Full circle again

.

*Fynbos

Fynbos is the natural shrubland or heathland vegetation occurring in a small belt of the Western Cape of South Africa, mainly in winter rainfall coastal and mountainous areas with a Mediterranean climate. Wikipedia

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!

  1. Whew, some rather intense descriptions. Imagining the blackened skin bursting to the new life below. I was rather thinking of a human, which would be pretty nasty and messy. To be born anew can def be a messy thing.
