'n venster na 'n ander wêreld

Maand

Julie 2015

die konstant van tussen

tussen die klap-klap van hout op die vuur
en flik-flik van die sterre in satynswart nag
tussen elke sekonde van elke uur
die spasies tussen woorde
tussen die knip van die oog
is daar altyd ‘n oomblik
jy leef daarin

tussen die ontstuimige seegolwe
en die kedoef van die hart
tussen geloof en glo
tussen heimwee en nostalgie
tussen en in
is daar altyd jy
jy leef daarin

in die tyd-ruimte kontinuum
is jy die konstant
en al is ek verlore in tyd
tussen dinosaurusse en oermens
is jy die lig in my kers
jy leef daarin

100_2023 Belfast begraafplaas in Mpumalanga

Cemetary – the word come from a Greek word that means “sleeping place” The older term graveyard is often use inter-changeably with cemetery, but primarily referred to a burial ground with a churchyard.

“Graveyards are oases of tranquillity in this chaotic world. They are places where some people finally find in Earth’s welcoming bosom the peace and solitude they craved for their entire lives. Are there really an after life? No one really can tell for sure. But it would be grate if there were one ” – Jaz Jaz

“Graveyards are a house of the death. Little more needs to be said to send chills down the spine of many people. Death is an instinctual fear that most people have because of their fear of the unknown, compound that…

Ons Sterre (astrologies gesproke)

Vanaand verskiet ek vir jou soos ‘n ster,
hou my styf vas, jy vat my ver,
duskant die Dogon se ster
wil ek vir jou ‘n blom gaan pluk
jou sagte hare daarmee rangskik.
Jou vat op ‘n bootreis op die maan
Mare Imbruim en Mare Crisium deur vaar
tot ons seilbootjie wil dapper vlug
op ‘n sterrewind se rug.

En die sterre sal in jou oë in klim
en ek sal hulle in jou opsoek
en ons sal mekaar duskant middernag vind
in ons harte is ons vir ewig kind…

Ons sterre sal vir ewig wees
dit is die astologie in ons gees…

Life and Line

prayer wolf

Following the lines and cracks
memories in greys, whiteblacks
the day I almost died
the day I died and came back again
the day I met the me within
the day I fell in love
the day she died suddenly
the day I became a man
all written in cracks and lines
in my hand

and still more lines to be fulfilled
a scar lined path of mystery
yet in truth every line is mine to make
every good and bad mistake.

Goddess I am just a man
lead me on hand in hand.

My derde bundel

Julle was lus vir nog ‘n digbundel deur my en ek is ook lus vir nog ‘n bundel. Die keer het ek en ‘n talentvolle digter saam besluit om ‘n bundel uit te bring. Hou die spasie dop, want nog ‘n bundel is oppad.

Mea Culpa (Alleen)

vergewe my as ek dit wat ek nie verstaan nie
summier op ‘n ashoop gooi
ek is bang vir wat ek nie weet nie
en dink alles wat my verstand te bowe gaan
is alles behalwe mooi
vergewe my as ek
slegs raaksien in dit wat ek nie ken nie
ek is maar net ‘n tonnelvisie-ou
moslem, hindu, vegan, gay
ek verstaan nie, gaan hulle vermy

ek lê so bitter alleen in my bed vanaand
hoekom is ek alleen?

geinspireer deur Tears for Fears se Mad World

My inspirasie is mense wat niemand aanvaar vir wat hulle is nie, wat nie die mooi in ander sien nie en my inspirasie is ook die feit dat ek nog altyd sulke mense sien alllen opeindi… sonder liefde

Kaapsehoop geskiedenis les en spookstories….

Maak julle reg vir ‘n spook storie want Hanneliese vertel ons van die spoke van Kaapsehoop. Is julle dapper genoeg om te lees….?

Kaapsehoop het verskillende spel vorme; Kaapse Hoop, Kaapschehoop, Kaapsche Hoop en is ‘n dorpie in Mpumalanga (voorheen Oos Transvaal). Dit is 1486 meter bo seevlak geleë op die Hoëveld se platorand, 25 kilometre vanaf Nelspruit. Kaapsehoop lê tussen twee natuurlike oop ruimtes in die rotsagtige veld naby die boonste kranswand, wat oor die geil De Kaap vallei uitkyk, met Barberton en Nelspruit as uitsig.

Kaapsehoop word vergelyk met ‘n kaai vanuit die ‘vasteland’ van die Drakensberg platorand tot in die ‘see’ van die Laeveld.

100_2179 Van die blyplek daar – gelukkige mense!!!

Oorspronklik was dit “Duiwels Kantoor” genoem na aanleiding van die hoë sandsteen struktuur wat die vorm van ‘n kamer het, met ‘n tafel en stoele en met die wilde bome wat rondom groei, het dit ‘n somber en onheispellende voorkoms.  Goud is in 1880 ontdek en in 1886 is die naam na Kaapsehoop verander wat verwys na die hoop van die prospekteerders om…

Blik-skuim, die ouens is fantasties!

As you’ve probably guessed, we’re fans of modern dance, from World Order to enthusiastic otaku to Kenichi Ebina. Of course, traditional dance is very cool as well, but we have to admit we have a particular soft spot for the many modern dance groups you can find around the world, and so we felt compelled to share a new video released this month that shows off some of the coolest modern dancers we’ve ever seen.

Featuring a collaboration between the Dancing Strawhats and Koharu Sugawara, you definitely won’t want to miss this video!

Letter to The next Generation

To the next generation

Hey you, it is time for my generation to let go. We have done some pretty amazing things and done some pretty screwed up things, it is now your turn. Learn from the mistakes we have made, please see if you can fix some of those we made and tried to fix ourselves. The earth we give you, we have broken a lot of it and fixed a lot of it, and we hope you can make it better for your children and children’s children. We give you our hopes and dreams that you may fulfill it and rise above our generation. We give you our hope because it is the second most precious gift we have been given. Our most precious gift you already have. You have our love. We gave it the moment you gave your first kick in your mother’s womb.

Go forth and be the light for generations to come.

with Love,

The previous generations

Afwagting

in my hart ruik ek suiwer nat aarde
en my geestesoog sien silwer druppels plons-plons
val
my afwagtig jubbel dans
somerreën weer sal kom
reën weer sal kom
nou in somber koue
van gryswinter
wag ek dat winter in warmlente kleure sal sterf
en ek sal na jakarandabloeisels kyk
reikend na die son
