The Ocean Has Transformed Me Somehow and I Deleted My Happenstance in It

Francois Groenewald is an author from South Africa. He writes poetry in his spare time.


I wonder what my paradise has confronted today

I know he is destined for greatness

He lanced away at his feathers

He made a retributed statement that day

and made me smile

What If?

What if he could be the one?

What if he could save us?

I don't think he knows how.

I don't think.

I am by the ocean so far.

I am by the living creature itself

Blue just like my eyes

Blue just like the sun used to be

Blue just like the sky is now

No Name

There was no name in the letter

I assumed that it had come from her

That time I didn't know was empty

and the time I assumed correctly is wrong

What if I didn't capture her this day?

Could I sail away?

No you could not, he said.

There are beasts in this village and mountains instead.

Don't cry for me river.

I don't suppose you landed the part I wanted you to be did you?

So what, I said.

What difference does it make?

Any at all?


So don't be a fiend and do your worst sea of mine.

I want you to.
