BLOGGING A-Z CHALLENGE – APRIL 7 & 9 CATCHUP G & H.



G is for Ghosts of Africa Past
Glimpses of spectres of times gone by;
Giving us visions of canvas vast –
Glorious visions of do or die.


Gaze, now, with awe at the country wild;
Going through this in the days of old?
Grateful so much is still undefiled,
Greeting the resolute the and bold.

H is the action these ghosts will give,
Haunting all those who have eyes to see
How all our ancestors came to live;
Homes made for those such as you or me.


H is, as well, for our partners here –
Horses who helped us to tame the land;
Heavily laden; often in fear;
Helpers far more than most understand.

    Love the ghostly hauntingness of the first part. 😉 I wish those ghosts would appear to some of our present lot, and scare the daylights out of them.

  2. A really gorgeous post. Gives me a flavour, not only of the stunning land you inhabit, but of the four-legged partners who made its management possible. Thanks for a lovely read.
