Every moment
Is more precious
Than a shining jewel

The play of afternoon sunlight
On high tide water

The gathering of birds
Perched atop a weather vane

The embrace of a loved one
After a shared struggle

The multi-coloured setting of the sun
Over silhouettes of winter trees

Steam rising
From a freshly made cup of tea

The swelling of hearts and dropping of tears
In recognition of a shared emotional experience

This world is full of more beauty
Than I could ever put into words

All that is required
Is surrender to one’s senses

A willingness to see all things
With wonder

The courage to open one’s heart
To the workings of the universe
2nd December 2020
Unlike any other poet
I want to write about you
Remember that
Genre: Haiku
Theme: That's it
Not so far away
Your soul
Is my home
I do appologise for the ill deed but this will is in appreciation of my friends deed
Uqhawule amaqhina
Uwonyuke amaqhina
Uqengqeleke kwamanye amaqhina
Uqaqambe ubeliqina
Kuyenzeka ukuqhatheka
Ufunde ubungqina
Ufune amangqina
Konke kuyagqitha
Konke awunokugqiba
Qina ngokuqiniseka
Yithi gqolo ngokuqhama
Uqhamise iziqhamo eziqaqambileyo
Nabanye ubaqoqoshe
Xa simanyene siqinile
Isiqhelo siyayoyisa ingqondo
Qala ngezokuqala kuqala
Xa uqalile gqiba
Xa ugqibile qala
Konke ukwenze ngokuqiniseka

She was the wind, and he the sea

Her soft kisses commanding his attention; his depth and breadth  embracing her every touch

Apart, two powerful yet gentle beings, existing in tandem

Together, a force to be reckoned with

That is the only love I care to be: unconditional, natural, unrelenting, eternal
i saw a band of angels in my dream one night
each one had a halo and a gown of white
they had great big wings and sat up on a cloud
sat there playing harps sat there in a crowd.

everything was peaceful it took my breath away
i sat there and listened as they began to play
such a lovely dream it brought peace to me
i wont forget my dream or the angels i could see.
