FEATURED in Clouds
17 October 2010.
I love painting clouds. Oil painting on canvas.
ART: Oil
I’m adding one of my poems in Afrikaans about clouds:

’n leeftyd
as kind het ek dikwels
op die naat van my rug gelê
en na die wolke gekyk:
cumulus, cirrus, stratus
nou is my langbeendae vir goed verby,
tog het die bekoring
van wolke my steeds bygebly:
cumulus, cirrus, stratus
spierwit springmielies in ’n bak,
die onskuld van kindwees
haarlokke, krulle en veertjies
jongmeisiedrome een vir een
grys kombers van diep verlange
toegekaros oor grootmenswees
breek oop in crescendo
c u m u l o n i m b u s
rammel en blits en dreun
kyk die weerlig, kyk die reën!
in rypheid so geseën
Tranlated in English:
I remember my childhood days:
on my back, on the grass,
staring up at the clouds,
counting the cumulus, cirrus, stratus.
Now I’m grey,
those longleg days
for ever and a day away
And yet, those happy memories of
clouds in the sky will stay
counting the cumulus, cirrus, stratus
In my innocence I looked up at them
and they looked like pure white popcorn balls
I dreamed little girl dreams,
yearning to be a big girl,
to feel those things that I’m not sure of yet
And in those dreams my spirit crescendos
c u m u l o n i m b u s tumultuous!

(Intense and spectacular
it thunders and it rains,
in adulthood it all came)
