About Me

My photo
Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
I am a white African. Contradiction in terms? I think not. Sometimes my blog will be serious; sometimes sad; sometimes irreverent; sometimes witty; always my truth simply written.

bloody-bearded, sleek tawny cat
pads gracefully across the veld;
languidly menacing,
magnificent head with heavy mane
swaying guardedly to and fro;
topaz eyes
aglow with fire and ice as,
lazy and sated,
it collapses beneath the shady doringboom
while mate and cubs move in,
noisily ravenous,
to gnaw and tear the mangled flesh
of the glaze-eyed prey
