In the Twilight Zone

Half light let me associate this Weekly Photo Challenge with Twilight.

And this is my impression after reading the poem of  African poet Unathi Slasha

Like Nxele, the Nguni cows
are never coming back
Their kraal has been
razed to the ground
As long as the royal sceptre
is clinched
in the right hand
of the adamant adanggaman,
the cows are to forever
wander, away
from the motherland.

  1. Your photo inspired by a poet, your companion of soulful photography, where the two you meat at the crossroads-deep, is my response to the both of you, poet and art photography, the texture, with the text. Moo! Said the Cow, thank you!

  2. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful visual rendering of this poem (complete with a cow of dejected affect and the colors of ruin after fiery razing)–now I’ll have to read more of the poet’s work.
