Father and Son or Snow-White Pearl, two marvelous poems by Yolanda Beukes, two poems about time and generations, love and family, feelings and life. Which one do you prefer? Perhaps both? Enjoy them and have a nice Friday.
Father and Son
When dawn arise the rays of sunshine
on this face that captured me
from the moment of existence
smiling heartbeat of perfection that’s mine
been borrowed from God himself you see.
For now you learn the basics
of how creation has its own wonder
beauty causing to this world topics
unanswered thoughts putting them under.
My boy, learn to capture breaths and moments in time
cause the walk we take was never mine.
I have placed you in the mollusk of Sodom
where the blind follow wealth and power
known to keep bread braking
for poor crumbs of sorrow.
Gomorrah secrete your union of oneness
thought my dust would vanish in the waves
of history repeated words and cries
brought forward from generations.
Stripping away your darkened vision
with ways unknown to your molding
forming my speck of dust
preparing my pearl with snow-white crust.
