this land is mine

confusion and borrowed fears
it was. We stood like shrubs 
shrivelled on this piece of earth 
the ground parched and cracked 
through the cracks my cry:

And what shapes
in assent and ascent 
must people the eye of newborn 
determined desire know 
no frightened tear ever rolls on 
to the elegance of fire. I have 
fallen with all the names I am 
but the newborn eye, old as 
childbirth, must touch the day 
that, speaking my language, will 
say, today we move, we move ?

My siel op haelwit wolke
In gietende reën sypel my gedagtes: eindloos! 
Ek stuur vir jou die goud 
van sondeurdrenkte landskappe 
in die galery van my stille gemoed. 
My opgevoude gedagtes steek vas 
en onderhou my geheue 

wat onvermydelik verstrengel is
en soos gister 
vind jy my siel op haelwit wolke; 
my gedagtes wentel om die aura van my taal 
en rol ragfyn ligstraaltjies voor my uit: 

wat die tuimelende bergstilte
laat rol oor die dansende blou waters 
na die holtes van my gedagtes.

My soul haelwit clouds
In pouring rain seeps my mind: endless! 
I send you the gold 
of sun-drenched landscapes 
in the gallery of my quiet mind. 
My thoughts folded down pitch 
and keep my mind 

which is inevitably intertwined
and like yesterday 
You will find my soul haelwit clouds; 
my thoughts revolve around the aura of my language 
and part sheer ligstraaltjies before me: 

the tumbling mountain silence
rolling on the dancing blue waters 
the hollows of my mind.

IZINKONDLO ZEMILILO


Ngizokulandela wena uze ushone emgodini
Uze ushone lapho ufihle khona izinkondlo zakho 
Ngize ngikubone usuzibasela usuzenza ubhaqa 
Kuze kuthi klelele nakude emashona 
Kube engathi uphethe izinkanyezi

I shall invisibly follow you into the sacred vaults
Deep in the belly of earth where you hide your burning poems 
From a distance watching you raise secret words as the torch 
Nay, the comet illuminating the arc to the depths of sunsets

My trasnlation 

I shall follow you till the day you die
I shall follow to till we arrive to a place where you hid your sins
Till I see you hide them
