  • lenny commented on the post, walls 7 years, 8 months ago

    High walls around around the houses. Electric fences, armed security. Fear and suspicion. Life in the suburbs of Africa. Looking up I watch the clouds fly across the heavens, birds swooping joyfully. Wish I was up there.

    There she was the chief instigator, wanting to destroy our realationship with her petty nonsense, gossip and backbiting. Do your best Mom, this is one marriage you are not going to wreck.

    Not quite, but nearly the epic storm he thought it would be as the huge Atlantic swell swamped across the deck. He sucked in the spray laden air and tacked hard into the swell. Sure he finished last but it was one […]

    He had been off the ‘wagon’ for just two days, but it got to him, the thirst, the dribble of moisture down the side of the cold beer. He slunk into the dusky bar and slaked his thirst. Oh well, two days is a […]

  • lenny commented on the post, hoop 7 years, 8 months ago

    Circus, place of animal cruelty. Forcing bored and tame animals to jump through a hoop of hell, flaming. The trainer, stupid in his arrogance thinks he is so clever but in reality a fool. The animals know better.

    My decision to stay, help, will hinge on what? It is just that the poverty, sickness, crime and heaving masses, scare and overwhelm me here in Africa. However I am trapped, hedged in, I have to help, even one. There are so many starfish to pick up.

  • lenny commented on the post, fences 7 years, 8 months ago

    Fences, across the African bush, dividing up the land. The animals still migrate as they have done for eons, only to be blocked, caught, impaled on the fences of death. Their instinct to live causing them death. I weep.

    The Lion gave a bellow of anger as it charged at its tormentors, tatty hyena’s who dared try to take a piece of the kill. Defeated the hyena ‘s run away into the veld, tails between their legs screeching wildly.

  • lenny commented on the post, accordion 7 years, 9 months ago

    I remember your slim Greek hands holding the accordion, fingers gently depressing the keys and the the gentle swaying of your body as you played the haunting melody.
    ‘Watch me fly, bet you cannot catch me.’ You said. You smelled of Kouros.
