Saturday Evening

The sun is slowly sinking away behind the trees,
waving goodbye with last rays
to another perfect autumn day.
The brightness of day is fading
Into the stillness of night;
the hustle and bustle of the day ebbed away.

Two doves sit on a telephone wire
waiting for night to fall.
The last glow of the day ignites
the flowers on the big Flamboyant tree
into orange flaming torches
to give thanks, and honour them for their beauty.

The faint crackle of the fire is heard
And the delicious smell of "boerewors" fills the nose.
Body, soul and spirit unwind slowly
from the hustle and bustle of a busy day
and a heart becomes still before the beauty of creation
and fills with contentment of a day well-spent.

PS: Homemade cheese rolls, fresh boerewors and delicious tomato and onion sauce - the perfect way to end a perfect day.

Thanks for your comment Justin. These to birds live somewhere very near and just recently they have been using the roof of my stoep as their "make-out" spot.

Okay... confession time. The last photo in my post I "borrowed" from Jozeygirl who were spending the evening with me... so she is a bit upset about me using her photo as she wants to use it in her own post. Wonder how she is going to use it? Will have to watch her blog to see! Sorry girl!

Thanks for the kind comment on my most recent post. I'm trying so hard to deal with everything in my head and my heart, but teenage hormones and the feelings and the frustration is just a lot all at once. And I care so much for him. I'm just trying to hang on, I guess. But yeah, thanks. :)

Oh, how lovely! I love seeing pictures of South Africa. My mother loved that country so much!

Now, can I come over to your house and have some cheese rolls and fresh boerewors? :-)

Jo and Willow, Just let me know which flight you're on and I'll pick you up.

Tim Bouwer said...

Mmmm - what I would give for a real braai.
