Adansonia digitata, Baobab, Kremetart boom, Oil on Canvas, 500 x 1000mm

Transkripsie

 

Maar wat wil hierdie breë boom

met sy geskende huid en plooi

van buikvel ons aan die verstand

tog bring?

 

Dat hy die ou legendes van die bos

al eeue lank in kraal-en aandlied

hier hoor sing?

 

Die grys boskaas wat so verward

sy wortelgreep herhaal – is dit

nie Afrika se alfabet?

 

Sy takskrif teen die winterlug

noteer: die duiwelboom, die kremetart

versamel duursaamheid en brak geduld

in hierdie klipperigste vrug.
