Okavango Day in Verse

Sunrise in African is a time when the denizens of the wilderness take stock and visitors to Africa head out in search of the Big Game that makes an African safari legendary.The African sunrise is one of the most spectacular moments anywhere on earth. It is a time when sunlight paints perfect scenes and wildlife flitters in and out of each moment. It is a time to savour.

Sounds of an ancient song

7.05 am: light streams through the trees

reflecting dust

of an African moment

playing the tune

echoing on the water

7.15 am: a light breeze

teases the water

to dance to the tune

of the sunrise

7.45 am: the sun lifts higher

pulling the shadows

8.20 am: the dramas of the night have settled

vultures a hint of what has been

buffalo, warthog and lechwe play their roles

while birds have settled into routine
The wind of the morning

8.50 am: the cool breeze has strengthened

staining the sky with the dust harvest

9.25 am: the wind

vigorous in its intent

blows through the palms

chilling the sun
a buffalo wallows

feeding

astrided by an egret

and oxpeckers

busy

a fish eagle sails past

plovers add a tinkling

prancing on the waters edge

egyptian geese hiss at anything
