Aloidendron dichotomum, Quiver tree, Kokerboom, Oil on canvas, 750 x 650mm

 

Ek stroop die lae

van sy stam, die

hartpatrone op sy bas;

blaai dit tot ’n ope boek

van al die woorde

wat ek vir jou soek.

Maar ek blaai my vas

in vesels van die tyd –

die twyfel

of jy in hierdie dorre land

’n koker vir

my hart sal bly.
