Sê nou die afgevalde blare
waai dartellend
en vul heimlik my blootgestelde verlange?

Opdatering: 8/3/2013 – Ek lees so pas hierdie gedeelte van Barend Toerien en kon nie glo wat ek lees nie… jy sal verstaan as jy die inskrywing oor hom op my blog lees. Barend Toerien is ‘n klein neef van my – wat ek slegs onlangs ‘ontdek’ het!

Sê nou die koue maan
ruk hom los

Doodgaan

Om dood te gaan is seker soos ‘n valskermsprongdie eerste keer; jy breek in koue sweet uit na gelangdie oomblik nader, sluit jou oë, laat los en val -!Die skerm gaan tog ope, jy was verniet zo bang.

Spleen

Ek dra die swartgal in my bloedstroom rond;daarom ontwaak ek traag en kom ek swaar orent. Hoe word mens aan die bitter wakkerlangesmaak wat klewe in jou mond gewend?

I have received a PDF document from my sister with the words, ‘…you will be interested to follow up the links in this document and read more, as you like to write as well. I think it runs in the family.’  Well, yes, I like to ‘write’, but where is the time if you haven’t got it? I wish I had all the time in the world! When I read the following paragraph about what AP Brink said about Barend Toerien, I thought by myself, hey, but this is me too! I love mountains and hiking in the mountains – I’ve done several  trips in the Drakensberg and the Wild Coast. I am a qualified librarian teacher, who LOVES libraries and books! Last, but not least, I’ve done some translations… not really something to get excited about, but at least one poem that got published… Barend Toerien grew up in Porterville, the ‘home‘ of my Grandma.  It’s great to know about your relatives and what they have achieved, it makes you feeling better about yourself ….hehehe!! Ok, I am proud of him, to be honest. 

 Please click here to access the PDF, which is in Afrikaans only. This PDF contains a number of news articles from various newspapers about Barend Toerien and MC Toerien. Both were writers/poets.
