Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

Only once in a lifetime


There is a kind of flower
that only once a year
opens her buds
and when the moon rises full and bright
shows her colours
while people await
the appears of her flowers
in silence in a temple
as if she is holy.

Only once in a lifetime
there is a girl that is like an angel
without any match

and that woman
I have found in you.
