What we have

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

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

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
