I write what I feel…



Post No. 848




Father raise me up,

Set me down on eagle’s wings

To soar on streams of air

High above the clouds,

Above the mountain peaks,

That I may see your glory

All laid out before me,

Witness to your majesty.

The rising of the sun

Lights the beauty of creation,

Designer of a universe

Too wonderful for words.

Nightmare –

Post No. 826


Nightmare –


Air as thick as watery jelly

Sluggishly runny

Deep breaths he said

His voice echoes

Through a hollow tube

Deep breaths

Where oh where is the air

I grope blindly

Sightless eyes

Can’t recognise…

Post No. 821




Wrapped in blankets,

Morning air as cold as ice,

The queue not too long today,

Getting to know the price

Of rising late…


Here and there a baby grizzles

But seldom cries – snug

As a bug in the layered rug,

Wrapt against its mother’s breast.

Many have another –

A sister or a brother – holding

Tight, safe and sound on the ground.


The line shuffles forward,

Breath condensing, compressing,

And warming the air;

Five minutes more,

Another five minutes

Until they open the door…

Post No. 811




Heat shimmers

Air expands

And smoke drifts

Lazily twists and twirls

Gracefully whirls and curls

Ever upwards

Slowly gently dissipating

Dissolving in air

But still there

Smelled but unseen

As in a dream –

Doors slam

Dogs bark

Have you started the braai

They cry
