On a clear day you can see forever-
follow the dusty road for 37kms exactly from the Weltevreden turnoff,
pass a Fig farm- next time-
you'll soon come to the signpost.
Here at the labyrinth on the farm we gathered-
it rained as we cried,
it cleared as we remembered
and in the end the sun warmed our shared grief.
Walking a labyrinth was a new experience for me, 1 km in and out,
it felt profound and spiritual-
horses, dogs, friends, strangers: all coming, going, connecting, passing.
On the way back-
an adventurous skaapie grazing happily on a different side of the fence, just like Gary.
