Die einde is in sig….my gedagtes spring rond……


VADERKRISMIS – Eveleen Castelyn 1928


stillenag weergalm,

geldklokkies lui

vaderkrismis op n vergulde stoel

in die O.K. –basaar, verleen

oudiensie aan die kinders,

sweet van sy aanskyn

tap oor sy wang

op die wattesoom

van n rooi pousrok,

voetsole brand,

weerprofete bring die goeie

tyding:  dit sneeu in Bethlehem!

die Merrykrismiskind

is weer gebore

vir die bloedige fees

van silwerstukke en soene

“Guillaume Apollinaire (1880-1918), one of the most influential and the earliest of the concrete poets, included a poem, II Pluet (It is raining) in slanting typographical rain in his Calligrames.  This sculpture (Black Christmas) is the even more concrete conceptual equivalent).”

 It’s Raining

It’s raining women’s voices as if they had died even in memory
And it’s raining you as well marvellous encounters of my life O little
Those rearing clouds begin to neigh a whole universe of auricular cities
Listen if it rains while regret and disdain weep to an ancient music
Listen to the bonds fall off which hold you above and below

Grieks of Latyns?

Apollinaire’s Calligrammes, a term he coined early in the century for the kind of shaped poem he believed he had invented for modernism (“Moi aussi je suis peintre,” he wrote), but in truth he was developing the latest avant-garde manifestation of what in Latin poetry was called carmen figuratum (figured poems).

maar gepraat van reën:


Imagine the clouds dripping.
Dig a hole in your garden to
put them in.
