More poems for Express It In Eight.
The humped, bare granite hills,
like whale backs scattered in the sea of veld,
are laccoliths, igneous intrusions
into the strata since worn away
leaving the grey landscapes of a former age.
There are often caves and overhangs,
eroded by millenia of water,
painted with the lives of vanished peoples.
