THANKS so much to Maree Clarkson
who bought a greeting card today! (3 June 2012)
Totius het jare gelede die gedig: Ek ken ’n mooi klein sprokie geskryf en daarin vertel hy van die tortel wat sy water troebel drink. Hier by ons is tortelduiwe, kransduiwe en lagduiwe en ek reken hulle drink almal hul water troebel!
I dedicate this to all bird lovers!

A mounted print

Kyk na die wilde voëls
Sewe uur saans in die somer
blom die rose steeds wit
al krul kromrug vraagtekens
teen al haar bange binnemure
(daar waar wonders en weet-nie’s
soos ou apostels peinsend sit
en vrae vra, beraadslaag,
diep-denkend aan ‘n plan,
‘n wonderkuur vir ieder kommeruur)
dis alleen in die voorkamer
waar gedagtes aanhou
timmer, klop en hamer
waar sy van ver deur donker bome
die aandgeluide hoor:

‘n blou bosduif koer
en drink sy water troebel
waar die klip ‘n holte maak

en sy haar wegholhart wanhopig troos
in die sagte omgee van ’n melkwit roos
