Pink was the colour,
as we drove up
Ou Kaapse Weg,
while get through to Fish hoek,
to visit my sister.
The Gladioli were out in flower,
as were the Pellargoniums and pincushions,
what a wonderful sight they were,
and the view down to Longbeach,
as we came out of the silvermine area
was incredible, enough so
that one knew
immediately why one
returned to Cape Town,
with all its natural glory,
which is fast disappearing
under the heavy machinery of developers.
