In the Wild

In the Wild

.

Driving at a snail’s pace corrugations rattle

As the road runs over arid riverbeds

The scenery loops round and round, over and over

A recording stuck in the groove

Then slowly a change takes place, a small dam ~

A large puddle ~ and just around the bend a trickle

As water dribbles along between giant rocks

Growing gradually longer, wider, stronger

Yet the overall emptiness of the riverbed remained

Small antelope could be seen now and again

The young kicking up their heels with frisky leaps

And majestic posing of adults in their prime

Making us aware of their entitlement and our intrusion

Thirst

Thirst

.

Dry heat dances above the tarmac

Eyes burning, searing, searching

Dense bush along the roadsides

With glimpses of clearings as we ride

Dirt replaces tar and rough replaces smooth

Saplings predominate

But some giants stand proud and tall

Greenery is mostly grey

Riverbeds lie yawning, boulder-strewn, bone dry

The rains are coming by and by…
