While We Both Stood Up On A Hillock - Poem by Gert Strydom

the big dam stretched out shining below us
with your eyes watching the daybreak,
together we watched the beauty without saying a word,
I wanted to woo you right there
but that loveliness caught us both
while red-knobbed coots flew screeching past.
There is something special to our being together,
something unmentioned that binds us to each other
while I notice great joy in your gaze,
something that a person can only find in nature
and sometimes we do not notice the beauty of it
but nothing can bring a greater kind of peacefulness
than here where you jump right into my heart.
