you cannot calculate my legacy in monetary value
or in market shares
neither in some property
nor anything tangible
I leave you my soul
recorded in poetry
with those of you with an ear for the essence of me
“God did not give us things to enjoy our life
He gave us life so that we may enjoy things” *
*Quote from my book, Water Dance
This is the title poem of my new volume of poetry, My Legacy,
inspired by my new surroundings in the Great Karoo, SA
This is my final volume of poetry published in English.
I am now concentrating on writing in Afrkaans (my native tongue).
