Treasure Island

Gert Strydom

(03 April 1964 / Johannesburg, South Africa)

The Sky Is Dull Blue

The sky is dull blue when I do notice you,
while a butterfly suddenly flutters
and land on your arm
on this perfect day,

we embrace and you do smile
wiping a string of hair out of your face
and without saying anything
we look at each other for long moments.

[Hata Bildir]
