The Baobab Tree

Poem By Gert Strydom

Misery, my affection

A love given

She left you all alone

those warm eyes

What are you thinking?

I will be there for you

as you are for me

I cradle Misery, most

people push away

You understand my thoughts

I didn't tell you yet

You listen without hesitation,

no interruptions

By my side, your promises

never broken

In the black of the night

ever so quiet

I feel Misery gently

nudge my heart

Loving me unconditionally

Paint My Souls

I'm a jade

Wear me out

Field Of Yellow Dreams

I stand in front of you
Almost every night


Misery, my affection

A love given

Spring Chill [haiku]

Spring chill comes alive -

a sun kissed flame dances bright

A Loaded Alice

Another bandit -

lands with a thump

The Blueberry Bush

Early in the mornin'

The sun in her hair
