Life, love and language

South Africa

While I’m in a poetic mood here is another one I wrote years ago, after a visit to the UK and Canada, and long before I realised we would one day be living in the latter country.

Last week I stood above the Mother City

and watched her lights spread out beneath my feet.

the shelter of the mountain dark behind me,

while cars made mobile patterns in her streets.

Last week in ancient crags of Cedarberg

I drove between the gargoyle sandstone towers.

Then, senses satiated, sat and dreamed

in Biedouw Valley’s rainbow fields of flowers.

Last month I walked through England’s gentler fields

and flew over the Rockies mighty peaks,

watched orca play in the waters off Vancouver,

but here, my heart was caught again, last week.
