WRITTEN IN THE SAND

WRITTEN IN THE SAND The Big Five—Africa’s pride in the vast open wild Buffalo, Rhinoceros, Elephant, Leopard and Lion Their prey—scattered Impala, Kudu and Waterbuck On hardened dust… their footprints prevail and stand WRITTEN IN THE SAND The proposal day--- carefully planned- a beautiful beach Red Roses, a Picnic, Sunrise and Diamond ring The petals—scattered on the soft damp sea tabloid Lover’s plea….a stick his pen, “Marry me—take my hand” WRITTEN IN THE SAND Early one morning--- He entered the dusty temple to teach Scribes and Pharisees brought her in—an adulterous Large stones…scattered for all to throw and accuse Jesus bent down… wrote with His finger on condemning land What was His message…..?

ANOTHER AFRICAN DAWN

ANOTHER AFRICAN DAWN

The silence of the dawn even before
the first bird sings its unique little composition to the world
crispness of the previous night fills the air
encouraging a deep breath of purity before daily issues pollute 
how easy it is to replace this beautiful time of the day 
perceived importance of one or two extra hours of slumber
only the wisdom of an Omniscient Creator could perfect this orchestration 
each new day with such peace and promise-
the Eternal assurance of a new beginning

Dry, dusty, icy, bouncy, luxurious….. Land Rover 
morning expectancy contrasting half awake awareness
novelty of a time spent inconsistent with the predictability of standard sunrise routine
a contemplative- life assessment at break of day
wrapped up in awareness of the cold beauty and African spaces

insomnia night after night restlessness tense & disturbed lying awake the mind modifies mutates preceding delusional dreams consciousness remains alert creative and mindful words emerge falling like puzzle pieces perfectly clear brain on the ball title transparent insomnia creates another verse and so it continues.. imagination inspired though sleepless despair bedside lamps beam gentle glow ingenious words emerge and flow finally... morning light sets insomniacs free another poem is shaped fashioned—complete elated euphoria compulsive fixation communicating another verse Copyright-- Kim van Breda

ESCAPE INTO REALITY

ESCAPE INTO REALITY

Escapists---fantasizing about worthless things
Well trained in our worldly ways and feelings
Struggling to visualize our predestined callings
Escapists—fantasizing about worthless things

Reality-- disregarding Eternal majestic dwellings
Pursuing false perspectives and earthly inklings
Mistaking Believers as fake brainwashed beings
Reality—disregarding Eternal majestic dwellings

SLOW DOWN

I look at remains of the morning craving it deep more time to manage my life and complete Can my cramped life handle one more thing? can the eyes of our soul see life’s swing? No single advantage gained to hurry a thousand broken things missed to flurry Bulls in a china shop we break our lives missing precious moments as trivial thrives Worlds addicted speed mechanics skills maintain blur unholy moments and smear mercy drains They say time is money- that is not true this is what God intended for us to do: time to breathe deeply time to see what’s real time to laugh longer time to rest peacefully time to give Him the Glory time with Him in Eternity “We are merely moving shadows and all our busy rushing ends in nothing” – Psalm 39:6 ©September 2013—Kim van Breda

BEAUTY


Beauty So exquisite Mirrored wrong perceptions Disguising hidden reflections Of past hurts and life’s cruel condemnation Lies beneath the surface Obscured mask of Beauty © Kim van Breda- 20 October 2014

DESIRE

Desire His wide shoulders Flowed to narrowed waist Her eyes locked on his vast manhood Muscled sculpture captured smooth perfection Her tongue caressed his lower lip Spreading thighs he entered Fulfilling her Desire © Kim van Breda – 22 October 2014
