Swart Reën/ Black rain

Swart Reën

Sag as die water loop,
oor strate en spore van niks.
luister die fluister is sag,
glad nie soet nie.
dis iets wat my seer maak,
soos rou wonde in die son bak.
die stank is sterk,
saggies kan ek opstaan;
uit stof wolke van reën.

Black Rain

soft as the water flows,
over streets and tracks of nothing.
listen the wisper is soft,
not at all sweet.
this is something that hurts me,
like open wounds baking in the sun.
the stench is strong,
soflty I will stand up;
out of dustclouds of rain.

"Dust clouds of rain" is a great line. Beautiful imagery here. What's this I hear about a tattoo?
