The Guinea-fowl's Cheerful chatter

The guinea fowl have this cheer
In their everyday chitter and chatter
That I cannot help but wonder
What they are saying to each other

All lovely kinds of things like
How tasty was that grassy-bite
The weather is so fine
No complaints about rain or shine

Did you see this morning’s
beautiful painting in the sunrise
And those new blooming wildflowers
In between the lovely tasty greenery

Singing a song of praise and thanks
Not an ounce of stress in their lives
they happily chat away to themselves
and keep us humans in the wonder

Peace in the Wilderness :-)

Surrounded by the bush; inhaling the air so fresh
Hearing the birds chirping so happily
Sitting next to a loved one, staring at the fire’s flames
Appreciating the beautiful night skies; with the full moon casting
reflections on the stream rustling over the pebbles

Far away hearing a Woodland Kingfisher saying
Chip-chirrrrr   chip-chirr   chip-chirrrr    chip- chirrrrr
I imagine him saying: come here, come here, come here
A shiver down my spine on hearing the lions roaring

The unforgettable sense of sanity, peace and quietness
And deep down in my heart knowing that
This is the great spirit of the african wilderness

The Cross Shaped Morning Star

I’m stuck down in a black spiral
A very confusing spiral
It’s a maze and it’s going downwards
I’m confused about everything in life
Don’t know what to do

I’m in a dark tunnel of glue
Was that my imagination or did i really
See some light far away….
I try to swim towards it
It dims and brights

I cry out loud for some more light
At first I felt hopeless
as it felt like nothing happened
Then one really bright
Cross-shaped Morning star appeared.

I felt the glue loosing its grip

Precious blood flowed from the Star
I was brought back to Life
My Redeemer put a rose in my hair
And a sparkle in my eye
- a reflection of His Image.
