a Calgary train

a melange of people

I see his fist curl

For Lahore

may your souls soar fee

from the pain here on this earth

fanatically spawned

Weathering storms

when I stack my stones

balance in life is restored

even though storms rage

Intolerance, racism, hate, violence, war, terror . . .thinking of Brussels

through bent perspectives

we cannot see each other

our worlds collide

Lonely grave

gravestone in the veld

a story long forgotten

ashes in the wind

Cambridge UK: July 2011

it is here I come

to sit in your old churches

to gather my thoughts

Marabi

your rhythms were heard

in slums of Johannesburg

in pebble-filled cans
