Artist's Description

Mirakel

’n Klein, wit eiertjie
het op los, droë takkies gelê
in die mik van ’n winterboom

weerloos, oop en onbeskroomd

wie’t vir moederduif gesê
om haar eier presies daar te lê

was dit dat ek stil moes staan
sodat dit aan my siel kan raak

dìs mos wat wonders maak

The photo was taken in our yard in Bronkhorstspruit, South Africa. A dove’s egg in the nest. I wrote an Afrikaans poem about it…..
and my friend, the poet Rick Heller wrote a beautiful English poem for everyone to enjoy!
Thank you Rick!
a simple joy
by RJ Heller

Tenderly placed, they caress and protect,
home for the soon to be traveler
Cupped like a hand, balanced with shear precision,
the waiting begins
Bathed in light, warmth, and a mother’s constant care … soon …

Leaves will stretch, flowers yawn,
wind will retreat and rest,
a cadence in simple rhythm,
measured by time and place
one day will yield, from whiteness so perfect, magical
a pure and delicate gift of perfection,
a present to us and to all,
who see with eyes open
nature present and lovingly revealed
as a simple joy….
