Stukke/Pieces


Stukke

die refleksie voor jou alleen.
opgebreek in stukke;
om weer ‘n legkaart saam te sit,
is niks.
as jy die kante ken.
kleur in van buite.
na die binne,
versigtig,
stadig....
jy kan die eiende sonder moeite bereik.

Pieces


the reflection in front of you alone.
broken up in pieces;
to built a puzzle again,
is nothing.
if you know the sides.
colour from the outside.
inward,
carefully,
slowly....
you can get to the end without effort.

Ek dink om jouself op te bou is seker een van die moeilikste dinge om te doen ooit!!!!
Maar dit is nodig!! Net jyself kan jou selfimage opbou, niemand anders nie.

Matt said...

I dunno. I liked the first poem better.

;)

etain_lavena said...

Charles Gramlich said...

Short and too the point. Very good.

I wondered when you and Donsie were going to start chatting away and leave us poor Americas scratching our heads. That said (jokingly of course), I enjoyed the poem and always like when you translate from Afrikaan. Sometimes its like reading while you hear it whispered from another room...

Brian said...

Like the poem, but it's a very great effort to put back together again.

etain_lavena said...

Thanks Charles:)
whahahaha...Wayne Donsie and I need to do or Afrikaans thing you know;), thank you:)
Brian I left my pieces scattered around it is now the time to get them together:)

Inconsequential said...

Cool, you're back on the poetry.
I like your stories, but much prefer your poems.

I never used to want to put puzzles together properly. always tried to make something else...never managed it though, I guess just one of those things.
Leopards and spots, you know?

lost said...

fels like sometimes people steal those inner puzzle pieces, once they're gone you're never able to find yourself complete again...

etain_lavena said...

Yes I know In....thanks, I am feeling a bit poetic...will see what I can deliver today.:)
Yes thats True maaikie...its hard, you know how many pieces got lost:)

R said...

Pieces of puzzles lie on the floor
Her work shirt in a wrinkled pile by the door
His shoe leans against a chair
Near a knee flicks a tongue
The mirror refracts
The light off their backs
Together again

etain_lavena said...

Thants kewl R if only it was that easy:)

I just discovered [url=http://bit.ly/bMGrYw]SatelliteTV[/url] on my PC! Ultra cheap at only $50 once off to get the software and an account on the Internet. I get more channels(in HD I might ad) than I get on cable so tomorrow I reckon I'm going to cancel my cable subscription. Thought I'd share this with you guys, worth to check out.
