African Sunset…

The burning heat of the plain rises up creating ripples in the air.

It is hot and humid, like a sauna, causing your breath to catch in your throat.

The grass is dry and stretches almost as far as the horizon, a vast ocean of stubble.

Distant trees silhouetted black against the blazing apricot and cranberry sky.

Voices as old as the history itself whisper across the plain ‘God is here’.

A distant lion roars as the sun sets ending another day in Earth’s womb, Africa.

A Rose and a Poem

original title: Death of a Rose
Drawn: August 2009,
Medium: graphite and coloured pencil.

Untitled poem

A moonbeam pierces this heart of darkness,

it is a salve to the wounded.

The blood flows, purging, cleansing,

dark and red.

A single drop falls,

enough to make the flowers bloom.

Bringing life to the barren landscape,

that is my heart.

Date written: unknown – possibly early 2010
