  1. dear Tish, during Easter Holidays we’ve been visited by three of our grandchildren, and so I also asked myself about the “bond between the generations that have been, are , and are to come…” – we have one room in our home called AFRICA cabin – the children liked to rest there, touching the masques, the wood fragments of ships, reading the photo books about animal wildlife in Africa – and danced to the rhythm of my guitar and drums…

    1. Yes, Peter, it’s alarming how the natural world is being worn down. Personally I don’t think humanity can afford to wipe out large chunks of existence like this. And so much is destroyed for entirely pointless reasons, when there are often means for making money that can preserve habitat too. BTW congrats on getting your poem short-listed. As ever, you use words in a very powerful way. Good luck.

      1. Thank you, Tish. I agree with you that we destroy earth for entirely pointless reasons. Like killing elephants to make piano keys, pool balls, and shirts with ivory buttons; leopards for leopard-skin rugs, etc. Pointless!
