In memory of a murdered child: Colighny South Africa April 2017

it was just last week ~ I too picked a sunflower ~ yet I got to live

Private music

sounds of our dreams

singing our own melodies

beating our own drums

you don’t give a damn ~ is what you have to pretend ~ we know differently

Today: April 2016

the delicate touch ~ of autumn on the Highveld ~ today’s little joy

By chance

without intention ~ my soul found its resting place ~ leaving me stranded

©Lize Bard


tumbling through my thoughts ~ itinerant in my mind ~ I’m releasing you

© Lize Bard @


I’ll explore with you ~ as far as you want to go ~ on each different path
