Barolong Seboni

(Botswana, 1957)

Lekadiba Gorge

being stone
you cannot bleed
yet from your open
veins
springs this colourless
blood
that seems to sustain
you.

being rock
you do not breed
but you
spawn
the fertile verdure
that spreads like carpet
at your
insensible feet.

lungless
i hear you
breathe
in the trickling echo
of water
that resonates
in timeless tunes

against the ancient
walls of stone
that mouth
the thoughts
of your heart
deep as the earth
is dark and warm
like a blanket
that protects the souls
of Moffat
Sechele
Sebele.
