Face To Face

Innocent predator, gentle creature -
I choke your air -
I rape your land -
distant Horizons now shockingly close.
rolling thunder of man's exploding numbers mean not life-giving moisture to feed your prey and nurture your young.......
but the crashing warning of extinction.....
I reach for you,
Unadorned, Naked and Vulnerable as you,
across the chasm of misunderstanding....
Yet not too deep...
Yet not too wide...
I pray yet not too late...

Ian van Zyl
