“We can never have enough of nature. We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coast with its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, the thunder-cloud and the rain.”
Henry David Thoreau quotes (American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher, 1817-1862)
This could also be titled: Summer somewhere in South Africa

Thanks to Rick Heller…… a beautiful poem!

clouds …

Rippled and full
With breath
Tongues touch

A language pure
So fleeting
In shapes

Listen with your eyes
They speak
Voices soft, subtle

The light is on
I can see
Time float

Full of life
Empty of regret
At play
