Focus On Springs

Eventually the mine closed,
where people worked for months
without a salary, the last of them leave the grounds,
and there’s a strong suspicion

that the new black owners took the profit into their own pockets,
refining the gold somewhere else outside of the company,
causing the company deliberately to break apart
and it is as if nobody can stop or want to stop this felony.

With stubble on their faces men stand in the streets
guarding cars in the hot sun
and they talk Afrikaans, it’s as if the blood clots in their veins
while life and all income stops for them,

where some even live in boxes on the street,
trying to find shelter in the open space behind a church.

[Reference: Sonnet – Uit Malvern (Sonnet – From Malvern) by S. J. Pretorius.]

7th Sonnet To Christina

Before putting pen to a dry broadside,
Vouch these sonnets a just lineation.
Christina heralds the good sidhe worldwide,
Calm, sagacious, and past numeration.
Her quest is redress for the lovelorn heart.
In revel and vision trance wild she tells
Inscrutable sorrows - the sibyl's art -
Then renders the blue dove valentine spells.
What need to hail her in secular script?
She augurs the age in vatic verses.
Seal this tribute in a helium crypt;
Make of these sonnets heavenly hearses.
Because we commend you your endeavor,
Prosper Christina, always and ever.

Encouragement

What causes this strange beating in my head
Which seems to break up each thought into fives?
It's like a copper's slow and stately tread
As round his beat he checks upon our lives.
Quite suddenly a thought occurs to me:
I'll write another poem since I should
Maintain this strange ability to see
A sonnet grow like flowers in a wood
On my computer screen. I know not why
These fourteen lines should suddenly appear
When all I do is look up to the sky
And out into deep space. To me it's clear:

Will Shakespeare's spirit tells me I should try
To write a decent sonnet by and by.

No Rhyme, No Measure This Love I Proclaim

A haiku chained for him my hand doth write -
this hand so frail unkissed by angel’ s tongue
could form no sonnet lovelier as quite
roses that on his cheeks lie, his cheeks wrung
quatrains to be put to test, I did taste
on fine romance a drama on its own;
the taste of love on brevity they waste.
In these, my poetry versed their way home.
In these, no anthology was e ’er known
that sleepeth in my fingers with his name -
for his name covets them in all their thrones,
no rhyme, no measure this love I proclaim.
...in haiku chained for him by angel’ s tongue
...my hand doth write sonnet, a lovely song.
