Poem By ...C Cleverly

Faithful come, succumb and crumble
A shadow on a mirror on a puddle
A pungent remnant of this perfumed tune
As I sing a song to me

Fragile chords bind to ford a stream
Of failed reflection yet we dream
To seek to find and speak of a love eternal
As I sing a song to you

Here a harpies harp jars a fallen glass
Hold the line and let time pass
Hold each other and grasp a love eternal
As I sing a song to us

An absoluteness shorn by wind.
Yellow sea, isles of yellow rocks;
Free of contradictions.
No walls, portals nor windows,


Cross rose
Prices rose
People rose
Hunger rose


O Madiba! Madiba your ship has finally come to rest
Rest now, now rest, for peace was your bequest.
Humiliated, disgraced, yet in captivity you chose
By embracing your enemy, you learnt and rose.


A breath caught as a drop.
Caught as bejewelling dew
on frozen twigs, cold and dead:
what's breath was water was ice.


The peace of a mind
No longer maligned
By ire or fire.


Paradigm unlocks truths made in paradox,
As softest water wears down the hardest rocks,
Dark-nest wombs child-guide the brightest light,
Made in silence they scream with wild delight
