Saldanha Bay

30 July 2012, 12:02
       SALDANHA BAYDEDICATED TO BERGIE.

Drink the libations of the sun
Savouring its essence of the sea
Stroll upon the actuate strand
Dragging feet in the plucking sand
Feel the flight of birds flying free
Or watch the chugging harvest run.


Amble through the picturesque port
Arbitrate the local debate
Of eco versus some magnate
Then: hear the distant breakers report.

The town is merged on a giant’s stairway         
Merry houses - lofty airy
Belverdered flats overlooking the bay
Haphazardly stacked, precariously cheery
All vie-ing for the panoramic view
Of ocean, bay and smoky blue.

Up and down the esplanade
Holiday-makers promenade
Ardent lovers serenade
Argent sea gulls are on parade
Strutting about just out of reach
To where the lawn turns into beach.

Sly fingers of mist creep in from the ocean
Ambushing the environs and the bay
Tucking them up in an eiderdown
Then slowly rising to pillow the town
Seen from above the world a duvet
From the crest of a hill, an isle in the sun
A scurrilous wind or a friendly breeze
Will soon unveil the town and the trees
Their fogdogs worrying the mist to the seas.

The Holy Grail of bribery has been the trillion rand nuclear deal, almost certainly already signed by Zuma with Putin, another gangster. But now that is beginning to slip away. Read more...

While the university students call for free and decolonised education, it's only proper for businesses to be proactive and help. After all, they have vested interests in their communities with their workforce and as well as their customers.  Read more...

The real reason Zuma cannot be expelled by the ANC is that any sanction pressed against Zuma will cause deep humiliation in the Zulu nation and result in them withdrawing support. Read more...
