Kgale Hill

copper red rust

lichen leaf red

flower red feathers

t-shirt reds


weathered rock


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
