HOPE

Spider’s webs like fine lace sparkling with dew

Fresh breeze embracing the golden view

Fingers of sunshine lick the bronzed sand

Silence spreads it’s wings over this timeless land

Africa’s giants: powerful yet gentle

Conscious of their surroundings: sentient and sentimental

Shadows of greed hound them: destructive and tragic

Still, they bestow upon humans their trust: encompassing us in their magic

A crash of Rhinos: magnificent to see

Running wild and running free

Rhinos, prehistoric appearance: muscular form

Some would say, perfect unicorns: two or one horn

Rhinos, also the victims in these times of sorrow

Horns ripped from their faces: merciless horror

Elephants slaughtered in large numbers for their white gold

Rhinos, their horns, a cocktail for customs of old

Footprints

Feel their hearts beating wildly: Burning from within

Don’t look away: share with kith and kin

An intricate part of life on this sacred earth

Blessings: abundance: rebirth

Measuring our civilized behaviour by the depth of our compassion

Flame of life, web of life, wildlife and passion
