Kgale Hill


copper red rust

lichen leaf red

flower red feathers

t-shirt reds

.

weathered rock

black

bark black

tree trunk grey

quarry mint pebble grey

dry leaf blend

in desert dry statue air

.

ringing bird calls

yoga laughter puffs

and baboon bark lament

.

rock clasping ficus green

new leaf spring green

after rain pond green rock pool

primaeval bird well

plastic clatter of human down draught

weathering footpaths by the generation

.

to the summit, sentinel height

for ancestral views

now inhaled and insighted

for quiet oxidation

.

the chaotic juxta jostle

of genom on geo

above the city that aspires

to ascend the spire of ambition

.
