Nama

click sounds in the sand ~ desert land coming alive ~ with ancient voices —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Spitzkoppen

ancient hills hanging ~ distant fata morgana ~ of another world —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Namib

the place in my mind ~ where I find a wild stillness ~ filled with your beauty —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Namib

the land, sky and stones ~ and then sand, and sand, and, sand ~ and nothing more  —©

Of rainbows

a few drops of rain ~ the Kalahari blooming ~ and colour erupts — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Tinted

in soft morning clouds ~ it’s so easy to forget ~ the land’s thirstiness — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Outline

when the desert dances ~ with all its hued silhouettes ~ my heart wants to sing — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Musing

in your reverie ~ hands mimicking the stillness ~ that I find in you — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Ancient desert

the dry wild Namib ~ fog rolls in over the sea ~ and endless red dunes — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

It is here

the place in my mind ~ where I find a wild stillness ~ filled with your beauty

Aspirations

we’re chasing blue crabs ~ across ancient red sand dunes ~ in tomorrow’s light

Exposed

naked like water ~ its ephemeral beauty ~ washes over me

Calmness

we are all alone ~ this is where we find the calm ~ amid a mind storm

Recollection

walking together ~ in the rain and the sunshine ~ of this lovely land

Namibian Kalahari: January 2017

a few drops of rain ~ the Kalahari blooming ~ and colour erupts

Far away from city lights

wide-open spaces ~ there are some who’ll never know ~ our precious wild souls

Swakopmund, Namibia: January 2017

alive in stillness ~ the endless sound of the dunes ~ gently tucks us in

Desert song

when the desert dances

with all its hued silhouettes

my heart wants to sing
