Do they know?

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

African voices

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

Women of Africa

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

From my window, Windhoek, Namibia: January 2017

in soft morning clouds ~ it’s so easy to forget ~ the land’s thirstiness

To simply be

this is where we are ~ no pretense or boundaries ~ simply in silence

No shoes

now your are the path ~ along which I walk again ~ brave and barefooted

Sun-kissed

captured in the poems ~ love letters from Africa ~ in sun-kissed raindrops
