A Poem about a great African River by John Roff

Below, the timeless river curls a lazy elbow of broad sand

into sheltering reeds and warm fig trees,

above, I could sit on this rock for a thousand years,

staring through a window in the wall of time,

walking somewhere deeper than contentment,

glimpsing home.


About Nikki Brighton

I live in a Magic Cottage near the mist-belt forest with my African dog, Dizzy. We enjoy long walks in the fields to gather wild greens, sitting on the verandah with a pot of tea, and harvesting vegetables outside the kitchen door.
