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.

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

Freedom in a Bubble – Repost

Sidey’s Weekend Challenge – 25.11.2011: Bubbles



Freedom in a Bubble


I am in a bubble

Floating in the air,

Drifting in the breeze

To I know not where.

Wonderfully weightless,

Up and up I fly,

Higher and higher

In a cloudless sky.

Oh what a feeling

Of freedom at last –

No more looking back

To the prison of my past.

A Bird’s Eye View

Eagle Pictures, Images and Photos

A Bird’s Eye View

I saw an eagle
soaring on the currents of warm air
high above the arid plains
of parched earth
where the hot wind blows
and the tumbleweeds roll,
keen eyes sharply focused
searching for the smallest movement
the slightest sign or inkling
of a potential meal for the open beaks
waiting in the eyrie atop a krantz
in the distant blue mountains.

krantz, n. (S.-Afr.) precipitous or overhanging wall of rocks

What a Beautiful Day

Pollution in the Air

What a Beautiful Day

What perfect weather:
Warm days, cool nights
And clear skies,
Not a cloud to be seen.
What a beautiful day,
But the sky is grey.

What a lovely scene:
The sea is blue,
The grass is green,
Fish frolic, birds sing.
What a beautiful day,
But the sky is grey.
