Best Poem of Dieter Ian Maree

Verruklik Vrou...

Stadig en suinig strooi sy haar laaste bietjie bruinsuiker in die vallei langs my linker-wang,
`n Paar sagte korrels in die droë rivierbedding onder my regter-oog
en die verslawende geur van swart koffie en moerbei teen harde lippe
en tande wat kners…

Kaalvoet en komkommerkoel klouter sy deur die kuis kamers van `n koue hart…
Met die onstuitbare drif van `n reuse roofvoël vul en vertroebel sy elke leemte van `n vroom en versigtige bestaan …
met iets so kosbaar jy wil die soet en donker detail met niemand deel nie…

Meer gloed as glorie…

Sy`s elke verkeerde ...

Anticipation...

My hands are numb, my senses are awake
Everything around me seems distant and fake
Simply because of this yearning
This yearning to explore, discover and to partake...

For your heavenly limbs have always been forbidden
Like sun-soaked fruit majestically dancing to a mysterious
rhythm...
A rhythm that our unity will soulfully perpetuate once
