Die mag van gewoonte


Die mag van gewoonte



Jy was gemaklik. Gewoonlik kan jy bekostig om kos te koop, om die hele huis te voorsien. Jy betaal kos, water, elektrisiteit en die gewone maandlike rekening en het iets oor om jouself mee te ‘treat’. Daardie klein bederf wat so lekker is.

and how with just a dash of the sun’s kiss
a rose can open up her secrets and bloom Lees voort “forces unseen”

“Oh my.”

The Voice

I exist not just in your fantasies
I am nothing new
yet you still have not discovered me Lees voort “The Voice”

blomme op grafte en oorlewing

Al ooit gevoel soos plastiek blomme op ‘n graf in ‘n myn dorp, daardie iets wat iemand met deernis geplaas het om afskeid te neem, om liefde te betoon, dan kom ‘n skerminkel Lees voort “blomme op grafte en oorlewing”
