Two works to celebrate the arrival of spring

14 Days From Namibia

From home in Twee Rivier we journey;
‘n toer van een plek tot 'n ander’
No roads through borders,
just sand.
And dry trees shelter carcass
as paths stay veiled.
No help from Perrier,
San Pellegrino has deserted us.
Mato Mato behind us
ons vorder van een stadium tot 'n ander.
To Upington we journey
