Poems of Gert Strydom

On The Quay I Am Alone

On the quay I am alone
while fishing-boats sail into the green sea,
I hide behind my sunglasses
and some boats skip over the breakers
before they reach the calmer water
of the deep ocean,

seagulls hang screaming against the wind
as if they are a part of it

[Hata Bildir]
