the past year I have written a Haiku
because I have studied Afrikaans (a creolized language related to Dutch dialects of the 17th century and related to the 17th century Dutch sailors-language) the Haiku is in Afrikaans.
‘n Bromvoël in die Karoo
brom, brom, skarrel in die struike
Aasvoëls hang in die lug.
translation: a ground-hornbill in the Karoo/ brom, brom, scrurries in the bushes/vultures hanging in the air.
