Majak Bredell

In die klein plekkies --
In die tussenruimtes
tussen 'n bewuste wens
en 'n onbewuste behoefte
luister ek na die stilte
op die rand van my gebed
'n Sagte lig kom uit
die donker klam aarde uit --
klein goudklontjies word
meegevoer op
'n dikswart stroom
Haar heilige gesig
word sigbaar
vanuit die donkerte
van my begeertes
Gekeer na 'n binnevou
volg ek die stilpunt tot
in die kern van my gebed
pers, indigo, blou, groen
geel, oranje, rooi
-- in die klein plekkies
in die tussenruimtes --


Majak Bredell

In the small places --
In the interstices
between a conscious wish
and an unconscious need
I listen for the silence
on the edge of my prayer
A soft light comes out
of the dark moist earth --
small chunks of gold
are borne on
a thick black stream
Her sacred face
is revealed
from the darkness
of my desires
Facing the inner fold
I follow the still point to
the centre of my prayer
purple, indigo, blue, green
yellow, orange, red
-- in the small places
in the interstices --
