Symbolic

giving it to me ~ to hold and to protect it ~ as token of trust

Like glass

for just a moment ~ the sky a blood-red marble ~ captured in suspense

@ Haiku out of Africa

What we have

a red footpath ~ to the distant horizons ~ a bluebird in hand


©Lize Bard

Scatterling

in all the places ~ that we were once together ~ the fragments of me

Do they know?

the child is not dead ~ young Africans lift their fists ~ not sure against whom


©Lize Bard

African voices

it’s a melody ~ that caresses my still heart ~ ’till she falls apart


©Lize Bard

Women of Africa

colourful and strong ~ the women of Africa ~ we laugh with our tears
