I remember

posted in: Poems / Gedigte | 0

I remember
red sand dunes
the sunbaked wind
reading in the tree and
the tracks of a toktokkie

I miss
thunderstorms on the low veld
running carefree through forest
finding hidden waterfalls and
having a treemade cave

I think
back and smile
at what was
and what I gained from it

I wish
I can share
and express
and prove
and communicate
what it is that I believe, trust and

I feel
the rush of the wind
as I run through the spray
the water drops flying up to kiss my skin

The humming rhythm of the seasons
reflecting time and memory
The touch of energy
breath of life
and taste of freedom, found…

I remember. I feel.
