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 Howick, between the river and the hills. I enjoy pre-dawn walks in the streets with my dog, sitting on the veranda with crochet and tea, and harvesting vegetables outside the kitchen door.
