Free Verse Poem
"The Lonesome Thorn Tree" by Sandra du Plessis

Early Autumn sunrise
in the South African bushveld
is a sight to see
when the first rays of the sun
arise over the fields;
where a lonesome thorn tree stands
waiting for the day to unfold.

The long warm sunny days are over;
now shorter, cooler days are here to stay for a while,
until winter chills will start to fill the air.

Here, in the South African bushveld
is where one can feel the peace
all around;
the thorn tree, the only witness
of your emotions,
before the start of a beautiful day.
