Belofte
Die lente kom en reeds droom ek
‘n feller son en brandende sand
en blindende bloutes van ‘n see
en teen die aande se kant
wit kuddes stof en skaap
wat swel en stroom
tussen bepoeierde sipres, knotwilg
en wilderoos deur.
Hoe goed om dit te weet: dieselfde
hoeveelheid somer kom vir seker weer

Sheila Cussons 1922 – 2004

Flowers in Winter
by John Greenleaf Whittier

How strange to greet, this frosty morn,
In graceful counterfeit of flower,
These children of the meadows, born
Of sunshine and of showers!

How well the conscious wood retains
The pictures of its flower-sown home,
The lights and shades, the purple stains,
And golden hues of bloom!

It was a happy thought to bring
To the dark season’s frost and rime
This painted memory of spring,
This dream of summertime.

I was born and still live in Africa.
Live a life close to nature, where I get the inspiration to do what I love most…., “Photography”.
Where I live and what I do is my destiny. I am grateful for the privilege
