Best Poem of Elna Nel

The Blame Beyond Reason

beyond reason the damage
done to the southern white
sensed as the nervous sky
keeps breathing in and out
like an elephant rumbling
it's last song before sunset

a cold cold august wind
rhinoceros are slaughtered
women are being attacked
watching is the nervous sky
and held by angels and let go
is the cold cold august wind

wherein assaults are crafted
where kwagga once walked
minds are defined by night
and trauma refining us
men who once as children
talked and trumpled streets

are now souls beyond reason
in the spreadlight ...

Read the full of The Blame Beyond Reason

An Insect's Insight

on the wings of a cold
Winter's wind
en route of
the dragon-fly's flight

she was caught dreaming
in the mistiness of inexperience
like a stray insect
roaming slowly
