The Fields


Dr Usha Roopnarain – TRANSCEND Media Service

A gravel path separates the fields
The clouds form a shady shield.
The pristine beauty it yields!
The wind is so silent.
This is a wondrous view.

A man and his dog walking.
On a gravel path in the field.
The farmer will return.
When it’s time for harvesting.
Posed like a canvas, with no faded forests
Just evergreen foliage.
Nature captured without defect.
Humanoids must protect their planet.
The earth needs more respect.


Dr Usha Roopnarain – Former parliamentarian in the National Assembly of South Africa, social activist and passionate about human rights and gender equality.
